I am still sick but I am feeling much better than last week by far.  My lungs are filled with unidentifiable gunk that makes breathing difficult once in a while.  I’ve stopped taking Dayquil because I am tired of being doped up.  Tazz is about the same with his cold and we both like keeping each other up at night with our coughing fits.  Damn it!

I had a bad headache this past weekend; bad enough to almost take Vicodin for it.  I rarely get headaches on my right side of the head, and this one was packing a punch.  I ended up taking 750mg of Ibuprofen and 600mg of Tylenol before it would calm down.  I even had my eye tear up on the right side which is not typical at all for the lovely ice pick drama that usually ensues.

This weekend we’re going to the Zoo with our friend Kim.  They have a special thing called “Ala Carte” where a number of local food vendors come and serve their cuisine in different stations all around the zoo.  They usually offer smaller portions so you can try many different places without going broke.  The other cool thing is the zoo stays open past dark, which isn’t common unless you’re a zoo pass member.  It’s both of our birthdays this week so we’re going to have lots of fun!  Of course, this is all pending weather which has been crazy weird so far.

I'm a 20-something full time geek, part time student and photographer with a life partner, dog, house, and the two cars. I also have an ice pick in my left temple every day.

Sorry, but I had to laugh at your title 🙂

Have a great time at the zoo. I hope you’re well enough and the weather behaves for you to enjoy it!
