Tell Me Something Good

I need to write something, but it's a document completely unconnected to this journal.

I also need to write a long rant here but I can't yet. Things are still happening and I can't say anything until it all shakes out.

Several days have been wrecked...

The faith I had been rebuilding in humanity took a big blow...

I was reminded of just how much crazy is out there and that you better be DAMN sure before you trust anyone.


I did get some of the rant out of my system talking to my brother. Enough that I think I'll be able to sleep tonight.

My insomnia has been acting up lately, and with all the adrenalin that was flowing through my system I didn't think I'd be able to sleep before March.


I don't like writing posts that are quite this cryptic. I'll try to have some real information in my next post. Probably not about this, not that soon, but about something.

In the meantime...

Let me know there is still good out there somewhere. Leave a comment with something to make a person smile.

I'll try to at least manage a smirk.

** Hack ** Wheeze ** Snort ** Gasp **

I've been coughing and wheezing for several days now. I caught a nasty cold which has completely filled my sinuses as well as kept me coughing. There were even a couple of mornings I woke up to a tightness in my chest due to trouble breathing. I have been very careful to make sure I use 12-hour decongestant before bed. No more of this 4-hour sh*t stuff.

Not being able to breathe properly, or at all at times, through my nose has done wonders for my throat. My voice has gotten raspy and threatened to leave.

So, I took it easy this weekend. In fact I didn't even leave my apartment yesterday. Just rested, read, and watched some DVDs.

And shivered.

Not a lot, but some. And only partly because I was cold. {Yes, I was cold. This will mean more to some of you.}

I still needed to rest today, but I also had to work on a couple of projects with approaching deadlines. Splitting the difference, I worked from home.


On another note, 3 out of the last 8 nights I have woken up between 3 and 4AM after tossing and turning trying to get to sleep.

I hate insomnia.

And it's that much worse when you need rest to get over a sinus cold.

What about Bill?
