Fever.

lu: (Sick)
I have been running a fever since Friday, which means I spent the whole weekend tossing and turning in bed, taking medicine, drinking water and having two showers a day.

I sincerely thought I would get better after yesterday, when I went to sleep with the blessed temperature of 98F, instead of my usual 101.5F. To my frustration, though, I woke up today really sweaty and really cold, and with a temperature of 99.5F, and rising. After taking some more medicine, I called my grandmother to tell her I might want to go to her house, after all. Grandmothers know how to take care of their grandchildren, and I'm quite tired of being sick and home alone (except for the cat, of course).

Worst part of it all is that I have a report due tomorrow, and I haven't even started working on it yet. Oh, summer vacations, why did you cease to exist? Oh, that's right. I'm the one who volunteered to work throughout January and February.

Fell better, sweetie :)

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
