SO HOW 'BOUT THEM RAYS.
My stupid wonderful team managed to make history last night. Seriously. It was such a roller-coaster of a night. Down to literally the last strike and about to lose while the Red Sox were about to win their game and push us out of the playoffs, and then the troll Orioles were like LOL HEY WOULDN'T IT BE FUNNY IF WE BEAT THE RED SOX? And then the Rays were like LOLOLOLOL EXTRA INNINGS DOWN BY SEVEN LOL OKAY WHATEVER WE'LL WIN NOW Y'ALL CAN GO TO BED.

seriously, Orioles fans were chanting LET'S GO RAYS. I take back everything bad I ever said about you, Trollrioles.

ANYWAY I have been sick! GASP. I have a sore throat and my nose is a little wonky. A little runny, a little stuffy. I caught it from Boyfriend (GEE THANKS) but judging by his symptoms I'll be better in a few days. No fever and only a few coughs here and there so I don't think doctors will be involved. I get sick so infrequently that when I do I completely forget how to exist. I've been miserable at levels that are far greater than I should be for what is a very minor illness.

In any case I've been downloading male hair for sims, which is a lot harder than it sounds. How come I can find a Hello Kitty fire alarm, but I can't find hair for male sims that isn't just a lazy re-do of a female hair? I'm not really happy with any of the hairs I've downloaded, but I don't really have a choice :( I'd be fine with keeping the small amount of hairs I do have, but after awhile I start associating certain hairstyles with certain sims and then I feel weird about putting the style on another sim. But we'll see if I can't break out of that.

ILLNESS

REMEMBER HOW I WAS SICK AND AM STILL SICK AND I WAS CONFUSED BECAUSE I HAD A FEVER AND A SORE THROAT AND THEN THE FEVER AND SORE THROAT WENT AWAY AND THEN MY NOSE WAS ALL STUFFY AND DRY AND GROSS AND I WAS BLOWING YELLOW SNOT

well my mother dragged me to Walgreens (it turns out there is no free clinic, and I have no idea why I thought there might be) and the fakedoctor there told me I have a VIRUS.

This must be some sort of horrible super virus because I don't get viruses. I have an immune system of steel. I literally cannot remember the last time I had an illness that was not a sinus infection treatable with antibiotics.

She also told me I am contagious. CONTAGIOUS! ME! HOW DOES THIS WOOOORK. So, because I am insane, I can actually FEEL germs on my hands (much like how after I go to the bathroom my hands feel really weird until I wash them). I feel like I am spreading horrible death virus to everyone around me. NEEDS MOAR ALOCOHOL SWABS.

I also can't see boyfriend for awhile. We had big plans for tonight but now I can't see him because he has an immune system that collapses under the slightest pressure and I don't want him getting a supersuper virus and then getting even sicker. Me, I can handle srs bsns viruses. Gimme a week and I'll be fine. I'm pretty sure if I ever came in contact with HIV it would shrivel up upon exposure to my immune system. Him, give him a virus and he will collapse in a heap of immune inadequacy and be out of commission for like a month.

I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS FOR OBVIOUS REASONS. I've been siiiick and I want to leave the hoooouse and see people and all kinds of fun crazy stuff like that.

Plus the lady said the sore throat will probably come back and I may even lose my voice but I shouldn't worry. I lost my voice once a few months ago but it was for like an hour in the middle of the night so I've never gotten to practice being devoiced in front of actual people, so I'm vaguely excited for this possibility.

SUMMER IT'S SUMMER YAY JUNE 21st I LOVE SUMMER WHOOOOOO
I don't love having heat exhaustion (WTF), but I guess that must have been my fault. Still, SUMMERRRRRR!

Oh also, happy Father's Day. My mother and I bought my father a coin with dirt from the old Shea Stadium (where his team played and where the Beatles played) because they tore the stadium down and he loved that stadium like whoa. So we bought him some dirt. He loves it, he showed it off to some visiting cousins and he took it with him to work. So that's good. :)

Fluwatch~~2009~*~
Um, I think I'm not sick anymore. Maybe. I woke up today feeling pretty normal and non-feverish, although I still felt a little crappy. Now I feel kind of crappy but my temperature is only 98.5, which isn't that high, although it was 97.5 a few hours ago. Now I feel horrible again. I haven't been sniffling or coughing or anything, it might be a stomach thing but it's pretty mild if that's the case. I looked up some stuff, heat exhaustion seemed like it could be it, but then, not really. I have no idea what's going on, if anything is going on. I've been drinking as much water as I normally do, which I guess is all I can do.
Should anything develop, I'll document more. I feel a bit sore all over, actually. Hmm. In any case, it's definitely not the flu.
STAY TUNEDDDD~~

FLUWATCH2009~~~!@221 UPDATE!!~*~*~

I'm sick. For reals. My temperature is 101 :( I just ate a bagel and took some ibuprofen. I don't think it's the actual flu, but I'm not going to the doctor to find out, unless I get a lot worse.
For archival purposes I have to mention that my father came home from the hospital yesterday (routine procedure, nothing serious. He was just there overnight.)

Now I'ma take my aching ass back to bed. Kbye.

Transcribing from paper is hard. Somehow, I have ended up with a sore elbow.

WHEN WILL THIS NOVEL BE FINISHEDDDDDDDDDD
It sucks because there are like six pages here gahhh and they're not even for the main narrative. They're from the points of view of two other characters, while the main story is written from the point of view of Main Character. So it's a lot of work but it doesn't feel like work and why does my elbow hurt? Grrrrrr.

In other news~~
FLUWATCH '09: Still no flu. Only have allergies, pollen counts have been off the damn charts lately. Fluwatch will remain a permanent staple of my journal now because I'm having a lot of fun with it, absurdly enough. 21 years and still no flu, HA. If anyone out there does have a flu currently, you have my sympathy. My immune system, however, is scoffing at your virusy weakness.

HEY HEY HEY
I think I'm having my first flu ever! Both of my parents are sick (which is a feat in itself, because my family Does Not Get Sick) and I think my immune system of steel is caving.

I'm not excited to be sick, don't get me wrong. What is kind of cool, though, is that I've gone 21 years without a single flu, ever. I don't get colds much, either. My body is a no-virus zone (sinus infections are apparently allowed, I guess. But no virusy things.)

I'll keep you posted should anything develop. I have a feeling this will be a very underwhelming flu, but I'm not complaining.

I have news! And some of it is important so pay attention.

-GreatestJournal is dead :(

-Livejournal just layed off 13 employees and people who are smart are backing up their journals (I used http://fawx.com/software/ljarchive/, which was pretty easy, and lj itself has a backup program but it doesn't save comments) and although there really isn't any indication that livejournal is going down, if you keep up with lj news obsessively, you'll have seen the pattern. So... yeah.

-Still almost sick. My temperature is 99.2.

-Britney Spears' next single will be a song called "If U Seek Amy." Yeah, say it out loud. Yeeeeah. (The rest of the album is so much better than that stupid gimmicky crap, grr. If I have to hear overproduced nonsense, at least make it better than that, dudes.)

-Half-Blood Prince is being rated PG. Whut

I went to see another baseball game last night, Rays V. Yankees. Last time we went we saw them play Oakland, which was nice (EXCEPT THEY LOST WTF) and I told my father it would be more fun if we had someone to actively root against, and since my father's a Mets fan (and therefore morally opposed to all things Yankees) he got tickets (which cost more! for the same seats!) to see them play NYY.
The Rays are the best team in the league right now. No, I'm serious, THEY ARE. It's so cool to have a hometown team win stuff.
Except that they lost. And they lost again today and if they lose tomorrow it'll be the first series they've lost since like June. OH RAYS WHY DO YOU START SUCKING EVERY TIME I START CARING?? Plus my two favorite players didn't play (one is injured and was SUPPOSED to be back yesterday) and one they just refuse to let play. I swear they pull people out of the stands to play before they let him play. He pitched a little tonight though, which was cool, but then they took him out and replaced him with someone who sucks more. EVEN THIS GUY'S WIKIPEDIA PAGE SAYS HE'S THE BEST EVER WTF GUYS. (Actually I started paying attention to him one day while idly watching the game- and now I understand why men watch sports, it's really easy to simultaneously think about other things/zone out and pay attention and be entertained- and I noticed that every time he pitched, his like six necklaces would fall out of his shirt and he'd have to put them back in, and he has a gigantic Adam's apple, and also when he breathes his cheeks puff out in perfect little circles, and he amused me so much it took me awhile to realize he was actually pitching a really good game, and also I've just this minute realized what "Adam's apple" means, and now I feel stupid.) Here's his profile: http://tampabay.rays.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=346797 (He has such a strangely shaped head). With my luck they'll trade him next year and I will pitch a fit (get it??)

Also before the game I went to the store to get my new antibiotics (since, if you'll remember, the last ones gave me the rare but horrible side effect that could cause my tendons to snap) except that my doctor never called it in, the whore. Got it today though. I just don't want to get sick again. It was fun for awhile but I'm ready to not be sick now (and I feel fine, so I guess I'm not anymore.)

Writing is going well, I did two full pages longhand in bed the other night that I have to transcribe, which I hate doing.

Still sick. I don't have a fever anymore (I think. I haven't taken my temperature lately) but now I feel strangely weak, like every movement takes up an enormous amount of strength and my muscles hurrrrrrrrrrrrt like I spent the day moving sofas up three floors or something. Since one of the side effects of my antibiotic is muscle weakness, I've stopped taking it till we can call someone to ask. I feel okay when I'm sitting still (just kind of tired) but when I move I feel like I'm going to keel over. Even sleeping is hard because getting in the right position hurts. Wtf?
I have so many lj comments I want to make but thinking in coherent sentences is hard work. I did a small bit of editing on my book last night, but I don't know if I can write new stuff right now. Sigh.

Went to doctor this morning. Fever went up and down all night (99.7 at lowest, 102.5 at highest). Doctor gave me antibiotics and told me to alternate between advil and tylenol every three hours, which has been keeping my fever away (right now I'm 97.7. It's insane.) I have an upper respiratory infection.
So I feel pretty good right now. :)

I'm sick!
My temperature is 100.0, which is amazingly high considering the last time I had my temperature taken at the doctor's office it was 97.0. ("That's... really low," said the nurse.)
There's also a painful lump the size of a chicken egg on the side of my neck, which is awesome, because I don't think I've ever had a swollen lymph node before. I've only sneezed once and I'm not coughing or blowing my nose, so I don't really know what's going on, considering I felt pretty fine yesterday. And then suddenly I got loopy and very hot and extremely achy and it hurts to crack my knuckles and roll my eyes and now I'm sick. I feel like I've been hit by a truck. A truck full of hot things.
I know I sound excited. That's because I am! I never get sick! And when I do it's a stupid sinus infection! And it is freaking hot in here. Well, no, it isn't, the thermostat says it's 75, but I'm too hot and achy to sleep. And being sick is going to mess up my writing counts! I'm gonna have to work overtime when I get better :(
I've also scared myself because they always say when you get sick suddenly and it's a high fever it could be something really crazy, which would suck, because I never leave the house and I use hand sanitizer and I don't eat crazy foods and I don't want to have crazy illness and also I really, really can't afford a return trip to the doctor's. And my ears hurt and I truly believe I'll never know what life waterless is like again.
Then again, the swollen gland makes me nervous because I might have an enlarged thyroid (that was the seeekrit health problem I mentioned before). Which fits, because I have almost all of the symtoms: I'm heavier than I should be, I'm always cold, my nails are thin, my periods are from the devil and don't come at the right time, I get irritated, depressed, and have "memory trouble" with some things... oh, and I'm shorter than I should be, my projected height at birth was 5'3" - the symptom list is too perfect, and I can't wait to have a blood test and find out if it's true. Or find out if my thyroid has decided to take over my neck O.o But in any case, if it's true and I get treatment I'll become like a whole different person, which is scary but also exciting.

I'm getting loopy, I'd better go back to bed.

ETA: 103.8! ...that's a little less exciting. Going to doctor tomorrow maybe.

-Kylie's "Better The Devil You Know" is good for writer's block. THAT WOMAN IS MY CRACK.
-I slacked off yesterday, so now I have to write 713 words a day until November 23rd :(
-On the plus side, 35,837 words makes me feel awesome. Plus I'm starting to get to plot points I'd only been writing in my head to this point, and I just made up a new one. Whoo!
-I feel like I'm getting sick again. My nose hurts and my cheeks hurt and my throat hurts and the WATER IS STILL IN MY EARS IT HAS BEEN TWO MONTHS PLEASE GOD SEND HELP. I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO HEAR AGAIN AND THE PRESSURE IS REALLY, REALLY HORRIBLE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
-I want to write under a pseudonym, but I can't pick one.
-Also, I've decided my book will have sequels and I've already planned one out. Maybe I just like punishment.

Time for bed. I'm getting silly.

I've just started rewriting my "book". From scratch this time.

Also, I went to the doctor yesterday because my ears were hurting like bitches. I was afraid I had the lamest of all non-serious illnesses, the ear infection, since THE WATER IS STILL IN THERE WTF.

Doctor said I have a sinus infection that's making the water hurt, but some medicine will clear it all up nice and happy and I'll be able to hear again, please and thank you.
I'm impressed my ears have gone this long with water in them without getting infected or damaged in any way. My immune system is awesome, you guys. This is my first illness of any kind this year, and I didn't even realize I had a sinus infection (I thought maybe it was allergies or something, I don't know.) I'm not coughing or sniffling, and I only feel a little bit sick (and a lot more tired than usual) so everything's great.

But my book is going to be so good when I get it published in 2050, I swear.

1. So the water went away for awhile but I think it came back. And I've still been waking up with sore throats.

2. NewBird is really, really dumb.

3. I think I've begun creating a... lexicon of sorts for my novel. It feels very pretentious. So far I've created new names for existing countries/areas of the world and two new names for the citizens of these countries. It's kind of fun though. I haven't written anything though. I just don't feel up to it.

4. I've got 19.7 gigabytes of music on my harddrive. I think I need to delete some.

5. I LOVE the rainy season.

I like making entries with lists.

1. On Saturday (6-15-08), at like 8 o'clock (at night), my father came out of nowhere (he works on weekends from the afternoon through to like 3 AM) with a BIRD. OMG BIRDS I LOVE BIRDS
NewBird is 6-8 weeks old and looks a lot like Petey would if someone dipped him in bleach. He's cute, but doesn't do much yet. I'm happy to have him, but I miss Petey so much- it feels like there's a hole in my house. But NewBird is adorable.

2. THE WATER IS STILL IN MY EARS. Also, I feel kind of like I do when I have a sinus infection; I've been going to sleep early (or earlier than usual), haven't touched my story, and feel like I have been hit by a truck. I'm barely coherent now, having been woken up because my mother was going to work. So I can't sit up and hang out with NewBird. My ears hurt and my throat hurts and mama wants me to go to the doctor, but I really don't want to go. Besides, they don't give out lollipops. I bought some stuff for water in ears yesterday but it only worked a little bit.

3. Hello Kitty recently unveiled two new characters, these little bear... mousey things that carry around giant cherries, called Cherinacherine (no, I have no idea how to pronounce that) and I'm going to have to own some of their stuff as soon as humanly possible, because I adore Hello Kitty and I have a terrible, terrible addiction to stuff that has cherries on it. You seriously do not even know how much stuff I have, it's a terrible weakness. Sanrio has wanted my money for years and I have always resisted (except that time I got a pink Hello Kitty phone for my room. It was cordless and had caller-id and EVERYTHING and was so awesome and then one day lightning hit the house and the phone died and Target didn't have any more Hello Kitty phones and I was so devastated, you don't even know) and now they have finally figured out the deadly combination that will get me to spend money. But ha ha on them- I don't have any money. But if we ever get back to the International Mall (is that its formal name?) which has a Sanrio store, I am so dead. But it'll be a happy, happy death by cuteness and cherries. (Link: http://www.tokyomango.com/tokyo_mango/2008/06/cherinacherine.html)

I think I'm sick AGAIN. My poor, poor immune system.
I never, ever, EVER get sick. I don't know what's been going on lately. I suppose this is the worst cold-flu-disease season I've ever had, minus the strept throat episode when I was in 4th grade, or my minor cold in 5th grade.
Except, I've been sick twice in the past month.
My nose is stuffy, runny, and hurts.
My throat is very annoyed and pained.
I'm incredibly achy...sensitive to touch.
I'm gonna maim my father for infecting me. BLAHHHHHH.
I do hope I'm better by Monday, musn't miss my first day of Algebra! *note sarcasm*.

I was thinking about my religion post, and I remembered that I've never really checked into the Wiccan... witch... whatever religions. I think I should. It's not that I'm interested in joining, it's that I'm interested in the topic of various religions... that's called Theology, isn't it? I suppose I must be if I made my own intricate religion with the Theory of Evolution and String Theory (I really think you should check this out somehow, it's fascinating) combined with God, heaven, eternal punishment, etc.
Maybe when I get older, I'll start my own real religion and not pay taxes and make lots of people happy with their religion. We'd meet on Tuesday mornings so people could miss school and work legally and I'd have a lot of fun.
Or, I'll leave people alone and "practice" privately.
The first one sounds more fun, but the second much more practical. Hmmmm.


OWWWW I just sneezed and my throat yelled at me for sneezing. Because it hurrrts. Ugh.

Well, gtg since it's...
