I’m hoping I won’t get any phone calls today. I’ve had a cold for the last few days and just as I thought it was getting better, out of nowhere I develop a terribly sore throat and now I can’t speak. My boyfriend told me he would take care of me and fuss over me; that lasted two hours, then he started poking fun of me instead. Pffh, and I who was kind enough to do what I never do for him: I let him borrow my headphones. Sharing in-ear headphones is the worst, I hate to think about sticking someone else’s earwax into my ear.

Since I’ve been feeling unwell for a few days now, I’ve stayed inside and not done much. I have an urge to go shopping, but I don’t have the energy and it’s not wise financially, so I’ve sent out like 4-5 requests for free perfume samples. I know I’m probably going to be bombarded with commercials in my mailbox, but as we are not planning on living at this address for more than a few months, what’s the harm? I reaaaally hope they arrive in cute miniature bottles and not in crappy plastic bottles or a tiny wet-wipe package… but who cares, it’s free.

Being sick also means that I’ve been overly invested in gossip the last few days. I’m terribly amused that people are reacting so strongly to that quote from JK Rowling about how she might have changed Ron and Hermione’s relationship if she had written the books today and that she was limited by deciding the ending to the series early on. Which makes sense, since most relationships in the books were underdeveloped. I wouldn’t mind if none of main characters had any romantic storylines. But holy shit people are overreacting and screaming and arguing why Ron/Hermione was better than Harry/Hermione and so on. That was somewhat acceptable in 2007, when the series was on-going/had just ended and THE READERS WERE STILL MAINLY TEENAGERS. It’s somewhat ridiculous now, years later, when the people who were so invested in the books are in their twenties…

oops my voice is gone
