Sick

Wes is right, my dignity took flight long ago. So, yes, I got up there for Rock Band last night and sang not just one song, but six. And actually, after I got over the terrifying nerves and self-doubt, I had a good time, and I could've stayed and rocked out into the wee hours if it hadn't have been a Monday. They need to move it to a Friday or Saturday.

Anyway, I don't think the smoky bar or singing helped my "ickiness," and this morning, I woke up with full-blown cold crap. I got the drippy nose, the plugged ears, the achy body, and the cough. Right now, I'm at school, muscling through (with the help of Tylenol Cold), but a huge part of me wants to cancel my night class this evening so I can go home and get some rest. We'll see how the day progresses.

In other news, Jerry departs this afternoon for Orlando -- he has a conference to attend -- and he won't be home until Friday night after the last day of the conference. That sucks, especially now that I'm sick. I suppose this means I'll have to go to the store and get Sprite myself. Poop.

Yes, liquid courage for the singer often helps. Although my singing is also usually dependent on how much the other people have been drinking too! Dang, I wish you felt better. Hopefully it will be short-lived.

I wish I could get my dog to take a shower. Scooter rocks.

Hmm..are these the students that have been annoying you? You could email the class and remind them about some big paper that is due today, and then end the email with "April fools! No class!"
Feel better!
