Thought I’d add something so this place isn’t neglected for too long. Right now I have this amazingly irritating illness of some kind which is infuriating me. Over the weekend I could hardly move due to dizziness. I COULD move, from about one chair to another chair, but once I HAD moved I’d be stuck there for ages recuperating.

Actually, the bizarre counter-productive way in which those salmon evolved (they have to swim upstream a river… in which water levels are too low to be traversable except during occasional floods… and can’t stop any earlier because they’ll throw a fit if they don’t lay their eggs in the EXACT SPOT they were born?) meant that I cheered on all the salmon’s predators in their quest to aid the cause of natural selection.

When I stand up, I am dizzy. At all times, I am tired. I cough obscenely often. My throat scratches. My nose is blocked. I think I may be losing my voice.

And trying to understand “Regional Relationships: Asia”. In summary, my sister needs to learn to just STAY AWAY from me when she’s sick.
