"So," I said, "word on the street is that there's some hot soup downstairs." Mom confirmed that there was, in fact, a giant pot of freshly homemade vegetable soup on the burner. She usually does large cooking on Saturdays--soup, spaghetti sauce, chili, etc.--to freeze for the rest of the week, so that's not unusual. Then I saw a cheeseball and triscuits laid out next to the soup bowls for dinner and I thought, This is football food. Is there a football game on? Something about... an iron bowl? Hmm. So I dished up some soup and fished up extra chunks of potato, as is my wont, and made some cheese toast and beat a slow, dizzy retreat back to my room.

I kept up/down/in some saltines and peanut butter this afternoon, so I'm optimistic about the soup and toast. I drifted in and out of a coma sleep this afternoon, and when I woke up a couple of hours ago I felt way feverish, but my temperature was normal. I've cooled down since--I mostly just feel incredibly weak now. I'm hoping that a meal bordering on actual food will make me feel better.

I would really like to lay in bed and watch a movie tonight, but I'm not sure I can stay awake. Also, I would like it to be a really bad cheesy movie, like an old Hammer movie or a black-and-white MST3K episode. Have they put any of the Mike Nelson eps on DVD? I didn't get to watch the show until it hit the Sci-Fi Channel, so I've never actually seen any of the Joel eps. I'm sure they're hilarious, if not more so, but they don't have the comfort-food quality of stuff I've seen a hundred times, like Leech Woman or The Thing That Could Not ("Would Not?") Die, or I Was a Teenage Werewolf. Man, the last ten minutes of the first hour of I Was a Teenage Werewolf used to make me cry with laughter, for some reason.

(Random thought: I've asked for Poe's Haunted CD for my birthday, but until I get it, I have the title song on MP3, and I really wish I had a copy that just stopped at 4:45, because I really, really do not like all the weird voices at the end.)

So. I'm going back to bed now. I have a ton of things I need to do, and after that, I have a ton of things I'd like to do, but... *flop*.
