I haven’t posted in the few days because I’ve worked like 21 hours in 30 hours and I wasn’t going to spend a minute of my precious spare time posting. I tried uploading a post from my phone, of my cappuccino which looked a bit like a sloth, but it didn’t work. I’m sure you must be weeping at the thought of missing out of such high quality material so I saved the photo for you:

Umm. Yeah.

In other words, not much has been going on. I was dumb enough to agree to do work 7 am – 9 pm yesterday and 7 am – 2 pm today. I thought it would be fine, but it turns out I haven’t quite recovered from my cold and when I came home yesterday evening I was having a lot of coughing fits. The irony is that I agreed to take on the shifts to make up for the days I was home sick last week, because I don’t have any sick pay. Oh well, all I need is a good rest and then I will be fine…ish. The problem with starting work at 7 am is that I have to get up at 5 – 5:30 am to get ready, which is a pain when you’ve worked until 9 pm the day before because there’s not enough time to sleep or wind down. Luckily I’m only working evening tomorrow, which means I get to sleep in!

Sorry for the pointless update, I will leave you with this to make up for it:

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…

Things no one wanted to know

Blargh I need to whine because it’s taco night and I don’t think I will be able to eat anything because my stomach hurts and I’m feeling sick. Tom says it’s the roasted pumpkin seeds I ate earlier. I haven’t had them in a while and I bought a bag of them and ate quite a lot and didn’t bother to spit out the shell on a few. Maybe they had some form of super pesticide on them and I’m now dying, rapidly. Or maybe it’s just all that fiber. Or maybe it’s just the spicy food I’ve been having recently. I love spicy food. I made a veg stroganoff the other day with a lovely chili burn and for lunch I had a spicy curry. Could be all that re-heated rice I’ve been eating. I put a curse on myself by saying “Re-heated rice can’t be that bad, I’ve had it a bunch of times and never been ill”. Whatever it is I’m suffering for it. Tom bought me some pills that said “For an upset stomach” so I swallowed a couple but then I saw that the box said you were supposed to chew them and apparently they’re for diarrhea and not a regular tummy ache and I hope that didn’t make it worse. My reading comprehension is really bad when reading instructions.

Sadface. 😦
