A smackle of entries. . .

The first entry is from Friday, but every other entry in this LJ entry has been pieced together from other entries that never really stood on their own. Either they were the starts of entries that never got finished (the oldest is from 10/22/2004), or they didn't fit anywhere else. Most of the quotes were just picked up along the way, some being descriptive and some just being worth remembering. Enjoy, and please feel free to comment or answer any questions posed.

I spent Friday night passed out on the floor of my office. I was sick, horribly sick. Everything from my knees to my digestion to my thought processes were painful or in revolt.

I knew I wouldn't be able to drive home in the condition I was in. I pulled out my jacket and spread it over me, propped my bag against the wall, and put my head down.

The world spun when I closed my eyes, but leaving them open brought amazing pain with the dim light.

I was helpless and lost, lying there among the dust bunnies and the layer of dirt my floor has accumulated because the housekeeping staff won't vacuum my office, and won't loan me the cleaner to do the work myself.

I didn't care about the grime. I was too tired.

And so I lay, clutching my stomach and my head, for an hour.

I finally got up when the phone rang. Had Tina not called, I might have stayed the night there. She offered to pick me up, but my pride took over at that point. I decided that I would come home when I was sure I could walk as far as the car.

I made it home that night, but was still in pretty bad pain. I'm not sure what was wrong with me, as I was all right the next morning.

Why are the words "musing" and "amusing" not mutually exclusive?
