    I'm alive and on the other side, I think. I dunno what the hell it was. I managed to stay conscious after work long enough to do my Thinkgeek Cyber Monday shopping and order in Steak Express (8 oz ribeye- I ate half, no utensils required, 1/4 baked potato with butter and sour cream, iceberg salad with blue cheese dressing, and 6 shrimp. I ate the roll, but more out of some need to get rid of it without walking to the trashcan.) I passed out on the futon not long afterward, woke up around 2145, had trouble going back to sleep (it was that weird stage of being sick where you're exhausted but just well enough you can't sleep), and passed back out around midnight (after Geek made sure I was burritoed into the covers and turned the heat up for me. Practical love knows no bounds.)
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        Geek and I have this thing (young love, I guess) where on the rare occasion one's sick enough to not force his/ her way through it, the other tends to play nursemaid, even if there's not much that can be done but let them sleep it off. Make sure the sick one's covered up, eating/ drinking if things are staying down, retrieving objects, that sort of thing.

          That's called mothering. People tend to do it for people they deeply care about. *swoon*

              That's it. We have to kill you. Most of the drama in my life is coming from Andrews at the moment, and I won't take anymore.
              Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

              If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

                  I've never associated it that way, but I guess you're right. We are romantic after our own fashion, but we'll never be stock romance novel characters. There's just too damn much engineer and practicality in the relationship to allow for that.
                  (Remind me to eventually tell y'all our engagement story. It's proof of how romance works for us.)

                  Whenever I'm cold or sick, I tend to roll up in the covers, so he was helping me do it last night when the blankets weren't behaving.
                  I'll tend to cook him comfort foods (including pulling out the ancient sammich griller) and he'll go get me soup, usually. Because of the way our bodies work, when we're sick, we don't have a choice but to sleep. It overrides pretty much everything. It's really bizarre when we're both sick, because we're both fighting it with everything we canmuster to take care of the other.

                  I doubt it, but we could try.

                    Had that Savannah salad again for lunch, this time with a parmesan peppercorn vinaigrette.

                        Yeah, I dunno what it was. Either it was the gunk going around and being mostly primal meant I only got a lesser dose, or it was just some 24 hr bug.
                        Dinner is tamartar gosht (chicken tomato curry.) I have my first pomegranate of the season for dessert. Well, I've already eaten half the arils, but it'll still be an awesome dessert.

                          Oh snap, I should get pomegranates. I didn't realize/remember they're a winter fruit.

                            I only realized they were when I remembered they tend to be cheapest around my birthday (February) and I never see them in the standard growing season.

                              Hi Naiad, I've been trying to follow along here (your journal moves fast!) so thought I'd drop a note to say hello. Glad you're feeling better!

                                Zee, it's mostly because I talk so much. You could probably skip half of what I write and still get a good idea of what's happening. (Of course, as an aspiring writer, I'd rather you not, but )
                                I forgot to mention that I ate a piece of sausage, a piece of cheese, 2/3 of the curry, 2/3 of the rice, and the pomegranate.
                                For the past several days (minus yesterday afternoon and evening), I've been STARVING. I've been eating 2-3 times what I normally do, and it's only barely enough to fill me for a couple hours. I've been wanting breakfast (I'm usually not hungry until lunch), my stomach's been letting me know it wants MORE. I'm mildly hoping to see my weight start dropping, because that might mean hyperthyroidism, which in turn would mean I could drop my levothyroxine dose again. I know it could just be a phase, so I'm watching, waiting, and hoping.
