My Birthday, and How it Sucks to be Sick
So I’ve been sick since Wednesday night. Which is awful because my birthday was Thursday. I went to work on Thursday, made it through the day, then came home. Got changed for the evening, then we went to the brewery since it was going to close at 6:30pm. It was just as well, it turns out that’s not a social kind of place.
I tried two beers, and then Ruff bought me a growler full of the Irish Ale that I liked. It remains here at the house untouched, because I’ve been too sick to enjoy it. Later that night, we ate at El Pacifico (a Mexican restaurant I like) and then came back to my place for some video games. After a few rounds of SingStar (a karaoke game for the Playstation 2), we turned that off and I broke out the Twister game Marq and Melissa gave me for Christmas.
That turned out pretty well, because they made up a game where they replaced the yellow dots with me, so whenever it was someone’s turn and they got “Left hand yellow” it would actually be “Left Hand Birthday Boy.” Hilarity followed, and a grand time was had by all.
My sleep schedule is screwed up severely, because I’ve been sleeping every chance I get since I’ve been so sick. Last night we watched Rocky Horror Picture Show and my roommate made up prop bags for everyone to use during the movie. Then I went to a nearby town to watch the new Rambo movie. I got in late, so I slept in today instead of going to church.
But long story short, that’s why there have been no updates for three days – I’ve been sick and busy, and just didn’t feel like sitting in front of the computer. More will resume tomorrow when I’m back at my day job, unless I get worse.
