I thought it was allergies, but it's still with me now in the morning, so I guess it's a cold. My throat feels like I've been swallowing razor blades all night. I'll get over it.

Yesterday was okay. My sociology teacher got mad at us for not reading the homework, but I don't feel too bad about it, since I was one of twenty people who didn't read. Even the teacher's pet didn't read. Then came nonfiction class, when my essay was workshopped. If I haven't mentioned it before, it's a companion piece to that one that I wrote two years ago about my father and brother, but this time it's about my mother and Kelly. I do intend to share it online like the last one, but not until I get some revision done first. It's very rough. I make too many errors, and I leave too much out, and a few passages are not authentic enough. It will be done no later than May 9th, and online when the time comes. The class was good about it. We went overtime in discussing it. They liked the voice, they were blown away by my honesty (been there before), they were confused by the contradictory errors. They genuinely didn't know what role-playing games were.

Then came myths class, which passed fine; an afternoon of sniffling, and dinner with Jackie and Becky. They made spaghetti with a thick sauce that tasted great. Jackie - I wish I could have hung out longer, but I was too sick.

Then sleep, but not much of it. Kept tossing and turning all night. Too hot, too cold, too sick. Too many nightmares. I need to do something comforting today.

Scott, play some Resident Evil Code Veronica.... that'll be comforting for the day...

Jackie, if you hadn't put the word "her" in your ex-boyfriend blow job story.... I might have guessed the friend of yours was Dave. :-)
