Odds and ends

Awwww, shitfire. Sister Girl has come down with the stomach flu of doom, and was up all night with it. And while I feel sorry for her, I'm terrified I'm going to get it, too. Not only do I have a presentation tomorrow and some pretty major paperage coming up, but I've broken all the capillaries in my face the last two times I've had the flu and thrown up. (There's a specific medical term for it, but I can't think what.) That's what the freaky "rash" I came down with really was--it looks like tiny red pinpricks all over your face, and it's not so terrible, but I can't go to class looking like that. And it takes about a week to go away. And we share a bathroom. Now, for the most part, I can get away with using the downstairs bathroom, but I've got to wash my hair at some point. I'm feeding myself zinc and collecting all the disinfectant in the house and preparing to go to war.



There is now a 2-inch scratch gash right where my hairline starts. I just noticed it in the mirror (while I was downstairs in the bathroom of flu fugitives). Dammit.



If any of you astrology buffs want to go to town on my chart, here it is. I was at astrology.com last night and had it made up for free--interestingly, it's more detailed now than the one I had them make several years ago. Comets and such, user-friendly tables at the bottom, etc. Again, I think there's a difference in "believing" this stuff blindly ("OMG MERCURY RETROGRADE I CANNOT LEAVE THE HOUSE TODAY") and saying, "Hmm, I have a sun (Sagittarius)/moon (Cancer) opposition. That's really interesting. You know... some of the stuff they're saying about that does sound like me. There really is a huge tension in my life between wanting to be independent and wanting to hide out at home. I wonder if they have any advice on how to deal with that...?"



I am obsessed with this Dandy Warhols song "You Were the Last High," for some reason. It all started because I didn't know the Dandy Warhols from Adam's house cat and wanted to see if the rest of "We Used to Be Friends" is as annoying as the thirty-second clip of it serving as the Veronica Mars opener is. And really, it's a pretty cool song. It's just not made for thirty-second clips. (Apparently it's been used all over the place on WB-type TV shows, including on The O.C.'s soundtrack. So you've probably heard it.) And while I was there, I decided to download a couple of other random songs, so I looked at which songs most people had--sort of a de facto recommendation--and I came up up with "Bohemian Like You" (it's okay) and "You Were the Last High." And I cannae stop listening to it, cap'n. I'm definitely asking for the CD for my birthday, but if any of y'all have song or CD recommendations, let me know.



Sigh. I will be off working on tomorrow's presentation. No, really. I'm going to be a good girl this time.
