I'm feeling better today! Yesterday I was very, very sick. Fever over 100 til about 4 in the afternoon, chills, headache, etc. I fasted all day [that is supposed to be the best thing you can do for a fever], stayed in bed, and drank about a gallon and a half of water o_O blub
The fever started gong down in the afternoon and I became simply ravenous but I didn't eat anything. Perhaps owing to the 13 hours of sleep on Monday night, I couldn't go to sleep for a looong time last night. I was awakened from hard-earned slumber at 5:30 AM by an atrocious peal of thunder. At first I could hardly tell it was thunder, it sounded like somebody banging into random things. Only a few miles away I think.
Stomach making loud protest [almost rivaling the thunder], I decided I would not get back to sleep without food. Downstairs in the pitch-dark: eggs, fruit gelatin salad, buttered toast, MORE buttered toast, toast with peanut butter, etc. I'm on the mend, folks! :)
Hopefully my fever will stay down today so I can go to class on Thursday. And have play practice on Friday, and dance rehearsal on Saturday....
I love Firefox!! Guys, seriously: if you're still working with that piece-of-crud Internet Exploder, go switch to Firefox or Chrome now. Oh the times that I have watched in helpless rage as IE "explodes" a page, opening myriad new windows....or stalls on some innocent page...or freezes the whole computer...these are the days of happiness, now!
I finally figured out how to type the é on a Windows keyboard!! [So essential for lucidity...] You have to hit the "number lock" key on th e right hand side of your keyboard, next to the additional weird little set of numbers. Then Alt+130. It's pretty easy to find a list online of other key shortcuts.
