Irony? Murphy's Law? Horrible Coincidence?

So I've been sick for the last 3 days now.  I'm pretty sure it's just a cold, and I'm pretty sure I got it from my roommate's boyfriend who had a cold when he came to visit last weekend.  I'm also pretty sure this is one of the most inconvenient times to get sick.  I spent my One Day Off (Monday) asleep in bed with a sore throat and a stuffy nose.  Called off work Tuesday, but felt incredibly guilty for doing so.  It's one thing to skip class, but I've found I'm VERY hesitant to skip work, even if I had a really good excuse.  I went to work today, but by the end of my 5 hour shift at the cafe, I couldn't speak above a whisper, and I still had to go to my afterschool job.  My throat still hurts like woah, but ibuprofen fixes that, so I doubt it's strep or anything like that.  My nose worries me though, as I'm prone to nose infections, and I just bought my new laptop (which is AWESOME and I LOVE it, and I'm NOT returning it no matter WHAT) so I really don't have money to go see a doctor.  My health insurance is CRAP, so I'll most likely have to pay full price for any doctor's visit and prescriptions.  Also, it's a cold; doctors can't do a thing for colds.  Colds are viruses and fast mutating ones at that (which is why people get them so easily), which is why there's no cure for the common cold.  Stupid cold virus.  Why couldn't you be an easily vaccinate-able bacteria?  Heck, even the flu virus has a vaccine, but that's because they don't mutate as quickly.  Stupid rhinovirus!  Stupid antigens!  Keep up, immune system!  Stop being lazy, worthless T-cells!

Anyway, I promised my mom I'd schedule an appointment for this weekend, and cancel it if I'm feeling better by then.  I've already called off work for tomorrow; if I can't talk what good am I?  I'll still go to the afterschool job, if only because I make almost twice as much there than I do at the cafe, and dangit, I just bought a new computer!  I needs munnies!  I enjoy paying off the full balance of my credit card every month and not having to worry about accumulating interest.  Interest sucks.  Being sick sucks.  My LIFE sucks right now.   Craaaap, I need a real job.

On a happier note, Kate R!  I finished your card during one of my brief lucid periods yesterday.  It's very simple, but I hope you'll like it (also the money that will be in it, heehee).

Another happy really, really, REALLY like my computer.  Really.  It's so fast!  And it sits on top of my lap!  I can take it all over the apartment now; no longer am I confined to my tiny faux-wooden desk in the corner of the living room!  And when I play games, I can actually enjoy them and not have to continuously reboot!  In fact, I think I'll go play my MMORPG right now!
