the flu has loosened its grip on me, slightly. enough so that I can sit here for a few minutes, anyhow. if I had a laptop, it'd be different. this has truly been the worst flu I've had in years. possibly the worst since the one that turned into bronchitis on me in the spring of '99. rough.
my strongest remaining symptoms are weakness and dizzyness. at least I got my voice (almost) back - for a few days there it was just a croak. now I have croaking, yes, and also a pre-pubescent boy's sort of squeak.
I dreamed that I was being given an award for my ability to communicate with children. steve burns was presenting it to me, and I doubled over in a horrible coughing fit. I woke up coughing, sweaty and disappointed.
