Hello Ginger Ale, My Old Friend
What do you call an evening of violent shivering even while under blankets, vomiting, passing out, hallucinating, wondering if you are going to die, being parched but not having the strength to make it to the kitchen in order to get a glass, all while making countless immediately necessary trips to the bathroom and being frustrated that your medicine cabinet lacks the one item that you need? I call it “Tuesday night.”
Last night I knew something wasn’t right. I had eaten dinner at Lettuce Souprise You, mentioned here matter-of-factly, although I can think of nothing else I would have eating which could caused this. I went to my final Digital 102 class, without incident. When driving to Graveyard Tavern to crash the On In of the “Chicks No Dicks” hash, I started to have cold shivers. After buying a bottle of wine as a peace offering for crashing their festivities, I left Graveyard saying that I didn’t feel well and that I was headed home to get some rest.
It’s now nearing 11am on Wednesday and I’ve finally been able to get to the basement to grab a couple cans of Ginger Ale, the only substance my body is willing to ingest. My legs still ache, and I struggled incredibly to complete the task without stalling. In the battle of Food Poisoning v. Paulie I have taken Round 1.
I am still very sleepy. See you all later.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – alive, or so I think
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Guided By Voices — “I Am A Scientist”
Website Of The Day – none today, sorry
If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on del.icio.us, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”
Exercise (b)Log – nothing unless you tally my bathroom trips
