So, good news (assuming you like me), I am not dead. If you don't like me, well, I'm sorry to have pass on this information but there it is.
I spent most of today in bed. Sleeping, that is, and not anything else. I woke up at about 8 AM because I needed to use the bathroom. The cat was meowing at me for his breakfast, so I fed him, and then went back to bed. Stayed asleep until about noon, then woke up and fiddled around playing games on my phone for another hour or two, at which point I figured I probably should get up and maybe eat something if I wanted to continue with this being alive thing.
Took a shower. Felt okay. The skin on my nose was peeling terribly, thanks to all the sneezing and nose-blowing I've been doing. I can mostly breathe now, though. It just sort of feels like I have an air/snot bubble in my nose/throat. And I still sound pretty crappy also.
Went to Starbucks for caffeine and also a bit of banana-chocolate-chip coffee cake, which I suppose counted as breakfast. Went to Mom's. Had dinner. Also, Uncle #2 and Uncle #4 returned from Maine. Uncle #4 complained that Uncle #2 is annoying and grumpy and miserable, which we all knew to be true anyway. Talked a bit more about Maine, and he said a few more things about the house.
The cat just climbed on to my laptop. Sometimes he comes on to the bed to visit with me and then he almost always sits right on the laptop keyboard. A short while ago, he depressed the power button, causing the computer to restart. This time he just typed the number 21. Does it mean something? No, probably not. But we can pretend it does if you like?
I realized some time last night that I actually do own a digital thermometer and so I took my temperature and saw that it was about 99.5, so there, I did (sort of) have a fever. But in that respect - the temperature thing, that is - I feel okay. Tomorrow I need to do laundry, which involves carrying a sack of clothes out in the heat, which will make me feel hot and tired, but in a normal sort of way.
I don't think I have anything else to say. I don't believe my brain is functioning at full capacity yet. Perhaps more later?
