velessa: (Prince of Tennis - Ryouma & Momo sleep)
I just finished up tagging all my entries, almost 900 of them. It just seemed like this journal has gotten to the point where I need them if I ever want to go back and find something.

I started on Sunday and didn't stop until 1am. I thought I might be able to get it all done, but I had about a year's worth of entries left to go and was just too tired to finish. Or so I thought. I went to bed and tossed and turned for hours, unable to sleep. I didn't want to take my sleeping medication because it was already so late, and if I did that I wouldn't be able to wake up for work. So then I got back up and tried to sleep on the couch with the tv on, because I often fall asleep this way when I'm really tired. Nope, nothing.

I ended up awake all freaking night for no reason at all, and it caused me to watch one of the most awful movies ever created, I Know Who Killed Me. I thought it'd just be a lame horror movie, but it went WAY beyond that! How can something be both predictable (I knew who the killer was within the first ten minutes) AND make no sense at all?? The "plot" was so full of holes and mixed up that it was impossible to follow, and the whole movie was really nothing more than an excuse for Lindsey Lohan to parade around in stripper outfits. Ugh, I think this was even worse than Batman Forever! Still not quite as bad as Kazaam, my ultimate worst movie ever, but it sure came close!

Anyway. I got no sleep at all, and hence felt horrible, stomach aches, sneezing and coughing fits, so I ended up calling in sick to work. Felt like crap all day and still couldn't get any sleep until it was late enough for me to take my medication and knock me out for the night whether my body liked it or not. Can I not sleep without medicinal help now? I wouldn't think so, I still fall asleep for naps all the time. It was just really bizarre.

ETA: Since all I did over the past few days was tag my own entries, I'm now waaaay behind on reading all of yours. If I comment on something a few days late I'm sorry, I'm trying to catch up on everyone!

ARGH. I haven't had a cold this bad since January, I think. My head is all stuffed up and hurts, I can't hear or taste anything well, my nose is running like a faucet, my throat hurts, I think I'm even running a bit of a fever, and no medicine I take seems to do anything. I've already missed two days at my regular job, had to stay home from my weekend job, and now I'm going to miss another day of work tomorrow. I can't get any sleep and I'm keeping Josh up at night with all my nose blowing and hacking. I'm going to see the doctor tomorrow, but I don't know if there's anything they can really do for a nasty head cold. Bah.

Stupid cold...anyway, I stayed home sick today. Out of boredom I watched "Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far" on Sci Fi. I've always heard about this show but have never seen it (even though people always rave about it) because from what I've been told you have to watch it from the beginning in order to understand anything. But I thought this recap episode would be a good way to skip over all that and see what all the hubbub is about. And, to my surprise (sci fi shows are hit or miss with me), it actually looks really interesting...I may just have to start watching this.

Aaarrrrgghh I still feel terrible and I'm supposed to leave for work in 15 minutes. =( I guess I can go up there, but I'm not going to be any help. I'll just have to direct the trainees and try not to die on them.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone ^^ I definitely have a full blown cold...I've been pretty much lying in bed all day sneezing and blowing my nose and generally feeling icky. My voice is still almost nonexistant and now my nose is raw in addition to my throat :p I was supposed to go to the A's game with my brother today, but I knew there was no way I'd make it. Turns out they lost anyway, so I didn't miss anything good. Instead I just stayed here and caught up on Kaleido Star, and I finally am able to start watching Mirage of Blaze because I accidently found that Jet Audio can play ogm files.

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] alliandra! *hugs* Hope it was great (since I think it's already tomorrow where you live)!

Eiji is hosting Tenipuri on the Radio this month! ^_^ This makes me very happy.

Video files of my ducks! For anyone who would like to see them doing stuff. The one where they quack is pretty funny...Ooishi has a normal duck quack, and Kikumaru still peeps like a baby for the most part...but when he does quack it's really loud and sounds like he's laughing! Watch it and see what I mean :)

in their pool when I had them at home
eating lettuce out of my hand, also at home
pecking my shoes at their new private island home
on the island
in the pond (Ooishi is quacking, Kikumaru is squeaking)
quacking and laughing (Ooishi is quacking, Kikumaru is "laughing")

Must find some Nyquil...this stupid runny nose won't let me sleep!

Argh, I think I'm getting sick. I've had a sore throat since yesterday and now I've pretty much lost my voice. I keep hiccupping too for some reason and I feel like total crap. Blech. I hate being sick.

Could anyone work opening for me this Sunday?? I'm still sick and I just know if I go to work it's going to get worse again. I want to get over this damn cold before it kills me. So if any of you can do it or you know someone who might be able to, please let me know ASAP!

And it still sucks. I was going to go to class today, but I'm just too dizzy. I'll have to get the notes from someone and hope I didn't miss anything too important. I did go to work on Sunday, which I think was a mistake because my cold worsened by Monday. But I can't really call in sick because there wouldn't be anyone to cover for me. I went to classes yesterday because I had a quiz in my anime class and those awful phrase structure rules were due. But some good news is I got my transcription back and I got an A! Only two people in the class got A's, so yay for me :)

I should really sleep and try to feel better by this afternoon, since I have to go meet the people I'm house sitting for today at 5:30. Hope I can find their house alright, it wasn't on Yahoo Maps. Heck, I hope I'll be up to driving! They live way off in the hills somewhere in an area I've never been to. I really need to do some work today, though, not sleep. I have to prepare both of my presentations by Thursday; I'll probably skip bowling tomorrow night as well and use that time for more recovery and homework :(
