"Anything worth doing can be done."

There is a myth about the fierce, cold Northern Wind, Boreas; he had a tendency to impregnate horses that were facing the wrong way, and he kidnapped pretty young women for similar reasons. He would sweep them up into the air and carry them off to far-off mountaintops, where he would tear off their clothes and rape them. Or, if you're feeling nice, seduce them.

Anyway, I relate this because I'm pretty sure that's what he was trying to do today as I was walking over to see my therapist; the wind tore at my clothing, nearly ripping off my coat, and I was dangerously close to being knocked off the bridge into the river, which was at least frozen over so I didn't have to fear breaking through the ice, unless I hit with enough force that I would just die anyway.

This was particularly wondrous because I'm still sick, only I didn't have a fever this morning and I do now, thanks, I'm sure, to the wonders of negative-20 winds. I haven't run a fever in years; in fact, my temperature usually runs low, so this is pretty sucky for me...

---------------------

So in other news, I skipped English today because I felt crappy and napped. Which I really want to be doing right now instead of writing... So I'm off to bed. Tomorrow I'll tell you about sick, clumsy me breaking glassware in lab and generally being a big lack of help to Maritima.

My Love Style is Storge

For me, love and friendship are almost the same thing
And my love tends to be the enduring, long lasting kind
(I've been known to still have connections with exes)
But sometimes my love is not the most passionate
I should leap before I look, and I'll find that fire I crave

One thing I miss about being a student is that when I was feeling cruddy, I could just blow things off. Now that I'm a teacher, if I feel cruddy, I have to still work. Ah, the joys of adulthood!

Oh Mr. Amishav--

I'm a student and most certainly can't blow things off--although the desire is always there!!!! But such is the life of a cumpulsive type-A personality such as I.

Mistake, you'd totally blow things off if you had a fever and were trying to get better before a sort-of date tomorrow night!

Miss Basio,

I totally have been running a fever for the past three days, and though I may not be going out tomorrow night, I can't call into work friday and must go...but that didn't stop me from making my classes and working on this darn annotated bibliography! Ha!! Type-A is prevailing!
