Flu or flu-like symptons. That's what I have. I feel horrible. Both kids have been sick, going back to Christmas Eve. I think I picked up whatever they had/have. I started feeling really bad yesterday, so I requested today as a vacation today because I knew it would just get worse, and at least I wouldn't have to call in.

And even though I could sleep in, I had to move my car so my Mom could go to work. When I tried to get out of bed I was so cold, or more accurately "chilled", that I couldn't stop shaking. I was really thirsty and chugged lukewarm water straight from the tap. When Liz check my tempature, it was 102.9. I felt horrible. Needless to say that I spent all day in bed. I got up to refill glasses or orange juice and take vitamin C and drink more Smartwater - which truly is the best bottled water around! At least Liz and I think so.

I slept part of the day (a large part), but I also tried watching some weekday daylight television. MTV was playing all of the episodes of Two-A-Days at Hoover High or something like that. It's an engaging show and I found myself really interested in what was going to happen to all of these people. After the last episode, MTV played a trailer for the new season of Two-A-Days. Will coach Rush Probst earn a 5th high school football championship? No. I checked the website and the Bucs go all the way to the Championship game only to falter.

Here's what sucks about me being as sick as I am right now. I absolutely have to go to work tomorrow because I'm going to be the only banker on duty. Everybody else is out on vacation. So if I were to call in (which I don't think I will) our office is basically going to be shut down until the new year.

So I ended up back at the doctor's office today. This time for some kind of insect bite. I'm thinking probably a spider bite. I'm not sure. What I do know is that I got, what I thought at the time, a really painful pimple or in-grown hair on my pinkie. I blew it off. And than it got more painful. And swollen. And more painful and swollen. And than yesterday I had to go home early from the store. I'm not one to get headaches, but yesterday I had the worst headache of my life. I also felt really disconnected, almost as though I were high.

In an occasion like this my imagination can be my worst enemy. I started panicing because I didn't know if my headache and fever had anything to do with the bite on my hand. But if the two were connected than what is the possiblity that toxins are traveling through my blood stream only to build up in my heart and shut it down like an illegal speak easy. Last night I had some really crazy dreams. And all though my head was pounding and my legs were wobbly I kep getting up to drink water. I was so thirsty.

Suffice to say that I'm feeling better now. The doctor lanced the infected area and gave me some antibiotics that I'm supposed to take for a week. I'm supposed to see him again in a couple of days.

My thoughts and prayers go out the Kim family.

I always knew about James from watching TechTV and later on seeing him on Cnet. I enjoyed reading his Wikipedia page and learn a little more about him as a person.
