Thor's Day

Administration
I got popular while I slept - hello to new readers gardenfey, pthalostars, and sunspiral, as well as longtime commentor enderfem, who finally gave in!

Medical
From an e-mail to docorion last night: "My throat is really sore, and I'm shivering, and my muscles ache. But I don't have a fever. I only rarely get fevers."

This morning, I have a fever. And a headache from hell. And I didn't sleep well because I kept shivering myself awake. So. I'm going back to bed now.

Prompt
Your writing prompt today is fever. :) (Yes, I'm lazy. I'm sick. Leave me alone. Go write something.)

Update

My everything hurts.

Tazo Refresh tea with honey is manna from the gods.

Adam, upon me waking: "I ordered you Chinese food. I didn't know if you'd have an appetite."
Me: "Gimme." *eats noodles*
Adam, impressed: "Wow. I wasn't able to eat anything when I was sick."
Me, eyebrow cocked.: "I have spent the last five years building up an immunity to iocane powder."
Adam: *blink*
Me: "Translation - I have spent the last year and a half developing the ability to eat even when I am violently nauseous."

Was it wispfox I was talking to about that? The tendency to speak in not just movie quotes, but in movie situations? This is what it's like living with me.

My Birthday

I'm still shy about asking for stuff... *hides*

*stops hiding*

Okay. Backstory for the new kids: I have always wanted a corset. Never had one. At Arisia, I tried one on that actually fit. I marvelled at this.

Lo, it is shiny. And will be special-made, because the one I tried on was an 18". I'm tiny. And it has room for me to shrink even further, and room for me to grow, and I covet it mightily.

It was actually elionwyr's idea to put up a PayPal button to ask for contributions toward the purchase of said corset for my birthday. Which is Wednesday. Blame her. :)

Anyway! If you want to see me in this corset (there will be pictures), please throw me a little money towards it? This is also a great option for an inexpensive gift. Any amount you can give rocks.

*bows grandiosely* Many thanks unto you. I'm going to go collapse on the couch now.

Yearbook

My daughter is a joiner.

Opened up the yearbook that arrived today... pictures of staff, then the very first kid-pictures were pictures of the clubs.

There's Elayna, wielding a rake, posing with the Gifted*/Gardening Club teacher and a few friends, in a group pic of the Drama Club, being dramatic in a candid...

Four pics, all on Page 1. *laugh*

The next page had her wielding her flute in Band's candids.

Five clubs altogether, and she's prominently featured in three. Safety Patrol she can't be in yet - fifth grade only. Leaving only Chess Club.

Elayna: "I really want to be in Chess Club."
Me: "Why didn't you join?"
Elayna: "Same day and time as Gardening Club. I really want to do Chess Club, though. Maybe I could switch."
Me: "Well, let's stick with Gardening Club til you get your Junior Master Gardener certification, okay? You can do chess next year."
Elayna: "Okay. Because chess is really fun, too."

She's just ravenous for this. She wants to do everything.

(*There was no pic of the Gifted class. (The gifted kids are in regular classes and are taken out to go to a special Gifted class twice a week.) I'm curious as to why not. More of The Incredibles mentality, "Everyone's special"?)
