OMG – three days in a row. I’m on a roll.
I took another sick day – I feel really crappy. I’m pretty sure it’s the nausea, or maybe food poisoning. I feel like I wanna throw up but I can’t. My entire torso is upset – From my throat to my pelvis (is your neck part of your torso?) I opened my eyes at 6:30 am, sent a couple of reminders to the team and went back to bed. I woke up at 11:30 am.
Maybe I should do a full day fast for like three days – Maybe I just need to restart my system. Reboot! I read about this woman that was doing a light fast; she was using the sunlight for energy and would just drink water. She might be dead now.
I went looking for gravol, then I got upset with myself cause I don’t want to have to take a new pill to counter the side effects of another. I figured I’d make myself some ginger tea to see if that settles my stomach. Then I remembered this cumin, coriander and fennel seed tea that I used to make – So I made that and added some ginger and lemon to it. I can’t tell if it’s working. I will have it twice a day, morning and night and see if I feel better. My daughter found gravol with ginger in it that expired in Mar 2019.
I remember one time I went to a flea market and somebody was selling bottles of expired vitamins and other OTCs for a dollar each.
sigh! I spent the day binging on true crime stories and rewatching The Equalizer movies. I started watching Shutter again, the 2004 Thai movie, but I didn’t feel like reading subtitles today. You should watch The Paramedic (2020 on Netflix)
I still haven’t called my girlfriend to discuss the cruise – I think Nov 8 is when we are supposed to leave but I’ve made up my mind. I am not going.
How often do you talk to people on the phone? The last person I spoke to was my boss, on Tuesday. Before that, it was Matt – Whenever he goes to the grocery store I find myself wondering why I didn’t just go myself cause he constantly calls me. “Just get the shit that’s on the list and come home! Jesus!” (that’s what I say to myself every time he calls and it repeats in the back of my head while I’m talking to him.)
Tsundoku – people who buy books but don’t get around to reading them. Bibliomaniac – people who collect books on purpose. I love books but I don’t read as much as I used to – I mainly only read business books.
Matt asked me for 500$ for the PS5 – I knew it was coming. School starts tomorrow – I told André to rearrange his desk so he can sit and work properly. Avery, his ball python, is on the desk and his tank takes up most of the space. He said he is going to sit on his bed and do his home-work. I know exactly what’s going to happen, he’s going to fall asleep and nothing’s gonna get done.
I want something nice to eat, like brownies or cake. I’m gonna go watch my daughter play the re-released, remastered version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2.
I’m kinda not looking forward to tomorrow.
