i'm good!

sick daze

yesterday was the best actual sick day i've had in a long time

i was sick enough to have called out of work, first off. they laughed at the frogginess of my voice when i called, so it was clear to them i shouldn't be answering phones for eight hours. slept in a little extra despite my resolution to wake up earlier these days (when your sick, you can make exceptions).

when i did get out of bed, i went to the store with brandon and got a few things needed to make pancakes. returned and made said pancakes, as that was what i was craving. they came out okay for being made by a sick girl.

then i sat around and read for a while. finished that Palahniuk book, despite it's getting crappier and crappier as i went. now i can go back to work on Fri. and tell Amy that i agree with her, it wasn't very good.

got a short message from a friend that really brightened my day.

then did a little art work. i didn't have any ink to work with on sunday at the casino gig, and so i ended up improvising and making paper cutouts. i couldn't figure out how to show that they are papercuttings with some dimension, til val suggested putting them on a window. i made one more yesterday and photographed one of them. it looks like this:

the screen makes it look a little funny, but there's no way to lift it in the windows at our apartment.

then, watched Sin City, because it's a damn good time of a movie.

still sick, but well enough to make it to work at the mall (at least, i hope so i can make it to the end of the day...)

trying again to find a suit tomorrow. tara got sick, probably with whatever i have too, and had to cancel. anyone else able to come with me? i hate shopping alone!

i'm good!

(no subject)

my dad just brought me some chicken soup here at the mall.

he's going to the store and is picking me up some things i forgot to buy the other day (pasta sauce and tissues) and bringing them back for me while i'm here.

i really will miss the little things like that if i end up going to japan this summer.
