i think i've had the flu. or some nasty bugs holding an orgy in my my body. it hit like a truck tuesday morning...really sudden (what does that?). i ached from the tip of my head to the tip of my toes...every muscle, every joint. fever and all. my fingers even hurt. couldn't even keep water in my poor tummy. i am better today. better than yesterday anyway. it took everything i had (which wasn't much) to drag myself out of bed and on to the metro yesterday to write my second to last exam. i got a B. i don't even remember the questions...or the answers! if i had to get sick, it should have been next week....no classes. all done. until my last exam on friday.
i don't get sick often at all. that was fucking miserable. my fever broke at some point last night and i hope it is over. fever is funny....rather, how people deal with it is funny. our body has one pretty good way of fighting little creatures that make our bodies their homes - fever. and what do we do? we take something to make the fever go away. most bacteria don't like heat, so our hypothalamus tells our body to raise the temp...sort of smoke them out. unless it gets terribly high, fever is a good thing. it tells us to rest and let the body do its thing. i did. i hope it is over. but i am going to stick around my little bed this weekend just to be sure. rest, drink juice and watch movies.

by the way, happy hurricane season, folks.....

Fever
I think that's the same bug that swept through here 2-3 months ago; I don't envy you especially during exams. Funny thing is when I hear the word "fever", I immediately think of a young hot Peggy Lee singing about it. Her fever lyrics had nothing to do with the flu though and her fever is by far preferrable to what you are experiencing.

Poor baby, get well soon; I'd send you meds, but given (parcel delivery)history you'd best just rest.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
