Updatey Thing
cap, captain miss america
So, today, I stayed home from work because I woke up at about 6:45 feeling atrociously atrocious. I couldn't get back to sleep, so I noodled around on the computer, called in sick to work, and ate a bunch of lemon lozenges the doctor at work gave me yesterday, then realized that the alarm that should have been waking me up was going off and took that as a sign that I should go back to bed. I holed up in my room and conked out for about four hours, then got up and noodled about a bit more and went to the grocery store to buy myself more fluids.

I I don't think I've drunk quite as much as yesterday, but:

80 oz water
30.5 oz R.W. Knudsen Grape Spritzer
22.3 oz San Pellegrino Limonata
20 oz Coca-Cola

Then I went to the drugstore and got a new inhaler, because I had a prescription for a new one, and I thought that might help. Holy god, did it ever. My new inhaler is possibly replacing all of you as my new best friend. It's like, puff, I have lungs now! Breathing! I can do it! Also, it's pretty obvious that this is related to my usual respiratory issues, and therefore I don't have to worry about the baby.

I took it pretty easy today, worked on some web stuff, and one of my LJ Idol entries, and did pretty much nothing else apart from eating some pasta with fiddleheads. Ah, fiddleheads, I love you so!

The most wonderful news of the day is that quizzicalsphinx is coming to visit me in June! In exactly three weeks! Eeeeee. I have not seen her for three years. And this is the first time I will have her all to myself and not a billionty people here. So much excitedment.

I am feeling way better now that I have my inhaler and stuff, so I will be going back to work tomorrow. Throat is mostly okay. My nose is running like it's training for a marathon, but a packet of tissues can deal with that. Definitely needed the day off, though. Definitely happy that I only have two days to work and then I'm off to Denver.

An inhaler can make ALL the difference! "I can breathe" is such a marvelous feeling!

I hope you recover soon so you can enjoy your travels and your friend's visit:)

I always forget about my inhaler when I'm not having a full-blown attack. It's amazing the difference.


The rare northward migration of the quizzicalsphinx!

I am glad you do not have the plague.

But if I had the plague you could study me!

Only until the CDC took you away. As long as it is not plague, I can study you forever.

Holy crap! I drew that. It's so weird to see stuff I drew that isn't cute baby faces.

And hooray!

I know! You obviously should draw me more recent icons relating to medical experimentation and/or pandemics.

I'm glad that you got your new inhaler!

Also, fiddleheads! I had some this season, too. Yum yum yum.

I love fiddleheads so much, I wish they came in all the seasons.

Glad to hear you're on the mend!
