    Ok, so I'm sick as all hell right now. I hardly slept last night and haven't eaten anything today. I shit you not, I just fucking fell asleep at my desk while sitting up and drooled on myself. I am so happy my boss is at lunch. I have too much work to go home, but I may do so after this. On the plus side, I got mad brownie points for being so blatantly sick and still showing up for work. I thought he would want me to go home so I wouldn't give it to anyone else...

    There's no doubt that I didn't want to go in today. I called my boss an hour before work and told him I was sick as a dog, but he hinted at me still coming in to try and tough it out, so I did. When it comes down to something like that, I'll give it a shot. Besides, other people in the office are sick all the time and rude as can be, therefore I have no sympathy for them. My department is also pretty behind and I would suffer from taking a whole day off. I just thought falling asleep and drooling on myself was hilarious. I laughed for a solid five minutes when I realized what I did.

    I left an hour early and got a call from a friend who wanted to go to the beach. Being a sucker, I picked her up, threw the football(involved a shit ton of running on my part because she can't throw =P) and screwed around on the beach for about 3 hours and then got some food. I'm just getting home now and to be honest, I felt so much better while running around, but I feel like absolute shit right now.... Oh man do I feel like shit ='(. I think I have strep throat because I'm having trouble even drinking water.

    Ugh, I just woke up... At first I couldn't sleep at all and now I slept for 13 hours. I'm not feeling too shabby at the moment, though. I managed to drink some orange juice, but my throat still hurts like a bitch and my sinuses are complete shit. I definitely called my boss at 6am and told him there's no way I'm coming in lol. He said something back, but I already dozed off before he replied.

    Recked, it's a good friend that's down from college and dating a friend of mine... I'd feel like a bit of a pervert.

    Yeah, I choked up a huge chunk of multicolored, blood coated, crap while brushing my teeth this morning. As of now(three hours later) I'm eating a sub and drinking gatorade with almost no pain, so I'm happy... Maybe it's some 3 day virus crap. Is coughing an early symptom of strep throat? I'm asking this because I haven't had the urge to cough but once or twice during the past few days.
