pollen & the tube.

i've been sick for the past few days and while i'm finally well enough to be wearing actual clothes and eating something other than soup [and even washing some dishes and doing a load of laundry now that i finally got a hold of some quarters], i still feel pretty miserable. a lot of people around me feel similar but blame it on allergies and though my allergies have never been this severe, i'm going to go ahead and blame it on that from now on. i have to go back to work tomorrow, go about my week as usual, and i'm fairly certain my fever has broken so that seems like a good enough sign.

i find myself more irritable than usual, something i noticed even before i started feeling sick. i'm not sure what that's about...? maybe people are just being their usual selves and i'm not ignoring it anymore...but that seems harsh. i've been sleeping more, eating healthy, active [except the last couple of days, trapped inside barely able to move]...one would think i'd be in a better mood, but i'm not. i hope i can calm down and figure these things out, but in the meantime i've been watching a lot of television. Weeds, Skins, Better Off Ted...tonight's the season finale of 16 & Pregnant followed by the Dr. Drew Special which never fails to entice. and really, at what point is it all that unhealthy to replace our real-life relationships with the fantasy-world found on the screen? i mean, they make me laugh, they make me cry, and with the brilliance of streaming shows online they're always only a few clicks away...
