i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
last night i couldn't get warm. i went to sleep around 11 and at 11:30 i was freezing. i was already using a sheet & a blanket, but adding another blanket didn't help. michael woke up i was shivering so hard, and he added a comforter to no effect. then i put on thick socks, pants and a long-sleeved shirt, and i was still cold. we turned down the air conditioner, but no luck. finally we turned off the air conditioner entirely, and i was able to stop chattering long enough to fall asleep -- only to wake up broiling later, with my clothes & sheet sticky with sweat. but if i tried to remove or shift one of the wrappings, i would begin to shiver.
now i don't feel like eating or even moving because anything rubbing my skin gives me the chills. in addition, amelia's status as an endoscopy patient is uncertain because she managed to find the food bag & help herself, even though she's supposed to be off food till the appointment. when i find the person who gave this to me i'm going to kick his or her ass!
on a happier note....
rob's arrived in corvallis! whoo hoo! i'm so glad for him! and brian has agreed to drop by saturday night since he can't come to the birthday celebration the weekend after. he'll be the first houseguest to use the new futon! :D
