Mine eye has seen the glory, now I'm lying on the floor

I've been having some trouble over the past few days with a pain in my eye socket. I had myself convinced that I had a stye or a scratch on my eye that was rapidly getting infecteder or that Scott Baio gave me pinkeye, so I made an appointment with my doctor ASAP. I am rather sensitive about my eyes and that tends to make me panic and expect the worst, so I wanted to nip this in the bud before my eye got so infected it had to be removed and I would have to wear an eye patch...

The paranoid ramblings of a druggie

I woke up this morning and felt as though someone had removed my eyeballs during the night, gouging them out and enlarging the sockets. They had then stuffed my sinuses and brain cavity with cotton, set it on fire and replaced the eyeballs, putting them in the wrong sockets and clumsily caulking them into place. I forced myself to get out of bed, but my one and only desire was to fall head-first on the carpet, crumple into a ball and moan about the evil that had been done to my head. I tried to convince myself to get up...

'I'm floating in a most peculiar way/ And the stars look very different today'

I spent my late morning and afternoon stuffy and headachey then floaty and shivery then completely exhausted and teary followed by jitters. The sinus headache I'd had in the late morning drove me to buy some daytime sinus medicine that took me on a rollicking journey of interesting symptoms. I'm still not sure how much of it was the medicine and how much of it was me coming down with something, as I've just awoken, warm and toasty and swaddled in flannel and sweatshirt, from a two-hour nap. Time to put some chicken noodle soup and tea in me, sort...

May cause excitability

Note to self: Do not take 12-hour non-drowsy medications at noon. Especially the day before you have to be ready for interviewing at 8am. *unsleeps*...

Poetry corner

Ode to my dinner tonight Oh muttar paneer You are made with peas and cheese I have leftovers. Ode to a conversation we had over dinner about Mongolian delicacies I like peas and cheese. I like the two together. I like both of them. I like butter, tea. I like them separate, but Not butter in tea! Ode to yuckiness in a bottle I've just taken some Robitussin to fight off A cold I'm getting. It tastes rather crap. Medicine men, please work hard To make it tasty. It has maken me Jittery - and nauseous too Not really sleepy....

The gag reflex leaves me answered with a question mark

"I'm soooooo tiiiiiiiiired," I whined. "You're always tired. Maybe you should take some vitamins or something," suggested Mr B------. No! I don't take vitamins! Vitamins are for people who don't get adequate nutrition from their daily diets. Whereas I eat a very rounded diet of... lentil soup, Junior Mints and bubble tea. Oops. Huh. When did that happen? And more importantly, how have I survived this long? So when I went to the store last night, I stood in front of the multivitamin shelves, bewildered. Where are all of the Flintstones Women's Vitamins? Why don't they have chewable vitamins for...

AKA Sleeper

How does Nyquil® work? How does it fix both stuffy and runny noses? Is there an ideal consistency for mucous that it regulates you out to? How does it know what my ideal consistency is? Why does it have to taste so bad? I bet it would be better for me if it tasted good, because I would rinse out the little cup and drink the rinsings, the way I do with Triaminic®, and sort of like that horrible commercial with the woman who drinks salsa-water. Water is good for you! Why does the bottle tell me to take 2...

More drug-crazed ramblings

At least I realize they're drug-crazed ramblings. That's something, at least. In between sending telegrams to The Front (textos to Renata), my other personality, the Major-General, has come up with the observation that girls are like cats and boys are like dogs. Or maybe it was me who came up with that. It's so crowded in there, it's hard to tell. Anyway, between the two (or seventeen, or however many there are) of us, we have managed to forget the evidence to support our claim, except that boys are often less complicated and more eager and drool a lot more....

What ho!

I don't believe in silverware. Especially when I'm sick. It's soup bowls to mouths for the duration, laddies! Has anyone else noticed that these drugs seem to have turned me into a British officer from a WWII movie? I better not run into Stefan or Johanna until I've recovered, or I might feel obliged to "stick it to the Jerries." Whatever that means. Toodle-oo, chaps!...

Snort!

My dad doesn't have allergy problems. My mom has prescription medicine for it. So whose medicine did I end up taking last night? The dog's. The dog takes people-medicine, so it's not quite as strange as all that, but I feel funny taking medicine that was bought for the dog....

Ahhh. I gave it another try...

Ahhh. I gave it another try and it went right down. TAKE THAT, Nyquil. Why isn't there more chewable medicine for people like me? They Might Be Giants have a song about someone driving after taking Nyquil. They had to call it AKA Driver rather than Nyquil Driver in order to avoid lawsuits. Tomorrow I go back to classes. I am looking forward to tomorrow... it's just all the days after that that aren't quite as exciting....

I am in the process...

I am in the process of trying to swallow a Nyquil liquicap. I got the first one down after a couple of gags, but the second one refuses to be swallowed. It seems to be happy in my mouth and doesn't want to die. Right now, it is sitting on top of my juice box and grinning at me evilly. Damn you, Nyquil, damn you....

I suppose you were not aware...

I suppose you were not aware of the Seamy Drug Culture of the Room of Sarahs. I'm afraid I must admit that under the current stress of the Finals Week situation, the inhabitants of our room are presently partaking of a variety of substances, including Vitamin C, multivitamins, calcium, Extra Strength Tylenol [tm], tea, chicken soup, and a purple Taz vitamin. I bought real grown-up vitamins, but it turns out my delicate gag reflex won't let me swallow them. Poor baby....
