It's not a happy day in ldyland. Not even an electric day.
I am still sick. This is unusual for me.

Office Admin will be out for at least two days because she has WHOOPING COUGH. I thought that went out with stuff like "croup" and "the vapors*!" Apparently it is rather serious, very contagious, and usually takes somewhere between five and twenty-one days to incubate. Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. Did I mention that the other girl in the office is pregnant?

It is hailing. Hello, it's Orctober. There should be NO freezing midday precipitation at this point in the calendar year.

My personal email's been down all day. No luff notes for meeee. :(

My boss is making no sense whatsoever. So I'm just making stuff up. It's all part of my job sometimes. Today is a sometimes day.

I have not eaten lunch. I feel woooooooozy. And whooopy.

I like T. S. Eliot. An awful lot, really.

Tonight, I will drive to East Bumfus to rehearse. I'd like to write our Fearless Leader a note explaining the whooping situation, but as I mentioned, the email is down the email is down (whoop whoop whoop). Perhaps I'll call.

I have officially had enough. I am going home.

* Did you start singing "turning japanese," too?

I'm feeling all kinds of: Everyone avoids me like a cyclone ranger
What I hear: whoop! whoop! whoop!

Ow! That would be bad! But I've heard that reality as we know it is made up of quorcs, so I suppose that anything's possible!

*sings* I really think so. doodoodoodoodoodoodoooo

And whooopy.

As long as you aren't feeling whooping coughy, then you should be okay after a while.

And while you are complaining about inappropriate weather, could you please put an addendum in there for Southern California that addresses the HUNDRED DEGREE HEAT we appear to be having in October? Seriously. It's just wrong.

No, I had a brother who had it (January 1985 - 18 years ago or so)... but it hasn't been eradicated yet, it can still happen. In his case (he was 14 months old) he had to be in the hospital for weeks - in an oxygen tent. Was silly picture, Mom sleeping with him at 7 months along with the next brother in line. They didn't believe my mom until he turned blue at the doctor's office.

[Yes, he had the immunizations, as far as they got at - other than for whooping cough - he was allergic to the shot. It happens. Then he got it from somebody a year later.]

This may not be German measles, but the pregnant lady had best be getting her doctor on the phone and asking questions. "Has everybody had their shots from when they were a kid?"
