Martian Death Flu

Tuesday morning I woke up with a sore throat. By tuesday afternoon I was feeling flat-out sick - and I barely made it home from Santa Monica Tuesday night, my head was swimming so much.

Wednesday I was worthless, and stayed home. I couldn't sleep because I had the shivers and shakes, and the cold medicine wore off halfway through the night. I bounced back a little in the afternoon, and managed to get out of the house last night. It might have been too much, though, because today I lost my voice and am feeling wretched again.

I would guess that this is the flu -- it sure feels viral rather than bacterial, since it's not localized. I'll bet if I went to a doctor they'd say, "It's the flu, drink plenty of fluids." On the plus side, I've lost five pounds in the last two days. If only I could keep that rate up! Only, without the sweats, the shakes, the froggy voice ...

New Egg

I just ordered a new video card online yesterday afternoon. The one I had was barebones in 2003 when I got this computer, so it was time for an update. I got a GeForce 6800 with 512mb of onboard RAM. I ordered it from, who had it for $100.00 less than anyone else.

Mind you, I ordered this thing, online, yesterday. Shipping was $4.65, and it arrived here this afternoon. I just found who I'm ordering all my computer stuff from, forever and ever!

Looking for a roomie

Ok, two of the roomies are moving out at the end of the month.
So, I'm going to take the master bedroom, and my current room needs to be rented out.
Anyone in the LA area looking for a nice room in a big, brightly lit house in Encino?
Rent is cheap, and the roommates are good fellas.
