I've been getting progressively sicker this week so haven't been doing much. When my temp hit 102 I went to the doc. She told me that I have the flu and a very bad case of sinusitis. And my lower blood pressure number is 54. I'm pretty weak and working to bring that back up. What she's worried about, because I don't have much of an immune system because of the cancer, is that it'll turn into pneumonia, which has happened twice before. So she gave me some kind of neutron bomb anti-biotic and said to call her on Tuesday.
Remember The Fugs song River of Shit...when everything goes wrong? Last night my electric blanket gave out. Years ago at Mayo I became a big electric blanket guy. So when I left the doc's office I drove to the nearest store that sold them. Turned out to be Sears. Got it home and it doesn't work.
I wanna say right here and now that when I become President I plan to model myself after the Steve Carrell character on "The Office." I'm going to terrify congress into going along with every law I want passed. And every law I want passed will be rooted in personal grudges and pique. Starting with Sears. :) I probably won't be back for a few days.
PS I'm well aware that there are children starving all over the world. And people living under the iron fist of dictators. But I bet they at least have electric blankets.
