The end is near 

It's official: the world is ending. It has to be. I woke up at 8am (that's in the morning) -- again -- so that settles it. Pack your bags, friends, and prepare for the hereafter.

I have some sort of bug... I thought it was a cold at first, but whatever it is has the added exciting features of both diarrhea and vomiting... so I've been feeling less than spiffy. All I've wanted to do is lay in bed doing absolutely nothing but sleep, but no. Instead, I woke up at 8 o'clock in the morning.

Last night, in the midst of my misery, I decided to take a bath, which I'd hoped would make me feel at least a bit better. Which it did, but not quite in the way I'd intended. About 10 minutes into the bath (squeamish folks will want to skip to the next paragraph) I suddenly felt very nauseous and vomited, right into the bathtub. With me in it. I could not drain out the water fast enough, nor could I clean myself off soon enough. So the experience did relieve some of the nausea, but I could have done with a different set of circumstances. Although, I must say, the vomit was an interesting color -- purple -- as I'd just taken a drink of grape juice.

Just thought I'd share.

I'm going to go take a nap now, because, after all, I was up at 8 o'clock in the morning, which, as we all know, is just plain wrong. Take care, friends... and when you drink grape juice, try not to think of me.
