Okay so I was wrong. Because when I put my own name in again I got a different response, albeit close. Interestingly enough, when I used my professional name or my middle name, they came back as, respectively, a rocket scientist and a quiet scientist. Just thought you'd like to know. Oh, and putting in Dangerspouse's real first name brought back that he was an unstable jester in a past life. I resent that - I have been using a jester as a personal sig and nickname for years! He can't have it!
Yes, I'm in a demented frame of mind. Stayed home sick, and overall feeling better than I did yesterday. Sort of. But had to lie down for a short nap and still running a fever. I always hate running fevers because it messes so badly with my brain functions. I don't trust myself to write anything that requires accuracy because I can pretty much guarantee that it will be WRONG.
Didn't take any meds yet, just been sitting under a vaporizer. I really don't like the stuff the flu meds do to me. I'm a real lightweight when it comes to anything - alcohol, any kind of prescription or OTC drugs, anything. While most of them don't make me ill, it takes very little to make me loopy as heck and sliding-off-my-chair drowsy. All that clean living for the first forty years has either its price, or its reward, depending on your point of view.
So I've been slurping soup and sipping hot tea all day, while being inundated with countless herbal remedies I really can't afford, even if I were safe behind the wheel to go get them.
Ah well, I'll survive.
I'm more worried about Friend from Quebec, who's doing less well on a whole different level. Hopefully he's going to be okay. If he reads this, I'm sending you a big hug, sweetie. You deserve it. I just wish I could give it to you in person.
You think your language teacher was tough on spelling? Try writing thirty or forty pages of code, where a single keystroke can prevent your page from loading. Or change colors so you can't read something crucial. Or stop a form from working, etc., etc.
Then again, refer back to the paragraph about the lack of brain function in conjunction with a fever. In other words, I pretty much don't trust my perceptions right now.
I think my mind has reached the end of its semi-coherent capabilities right now and I'm developing another sore throat and earache, so going to call it enough for the moment and start working my way through Wench77's Environmental Footprint Survey.
Took another quiz - yeah, you can tell I'm home and feeling crappy if I'm taking quizzes related to love relationships:
Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLDf)
You take love as opportunities come, which can lead to a high-anxiety, but high-flying romantic life. You're a genuinely sweet person, not saccharine at all, so it's likely that the relationships you have had and will have will be happy ones. You've had a fair amount of love experience for your age, and there'll be much more to come.
Your ideal match is someone who'll love you back with equal fire, and someone you've grown to love slowly. A self-involved or pessimistic man is especially bad. Though you're drawn to them, avoid artists at all costs.
BEWARE: The Hornivore
CONSIDER: The Gentleman, The Loverboy
Humph. What do they know? I avoid relationships in general.
