not undead yet

So, here I am in the public library, all decked out in my Death costume (the character from the Sandman comics), looking pretty gothic and foxy, if I do say so myself. It's a nice change, cause guess what I got for my birthday?


Yep, the birthday was fine, but at about 3 AM that night my glands swelled up like I'd swallowed two tennis balls and I suddenly couldn't talk. But I went to work anyway. Nothing ibuprofen can't fix, right? But I ached all over, and my sinuses started acting up, I was so tired I could barely stand, and then I got a fever. I called my mom the registered nurse and she said, "Mono! Stay in bed!" So I did. I had to rearrange all my exams and miss some class, and it turns out I was PMSing at the same time. Fun!

It was a good thing, actually. One of those cosmic two-by-fours to the head. "Massage therapist, heal thyself," and all that. I was doing too much, stretching myself too thin and not focusing on what I'm here for: studying and training. So now I've reshuffled some priorities a bit, cut back my work hours, etc. I feel much better. I'm still going to have fatigue symptoms for another month maybe, which will keep me from slipping back into my old habits I guess.

So Happy Halloween everyone. I'm going to run some errands, read some tarot, and watch some Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere series.

gah! hope the glands have gone down by now.

how is Neverwhere (the broadcast)? i'd heard not-so-hot things, mostly wrt production values. worth the rental?

btw, how are you liking the Phyllis Curott?
