My throat has been hurting since last night. I came to work armed with my herbal immune-stimulants. I better not get sick.

My dad's getting a cash advance on his credit card to help me pay the appraisal fee today. This is a big deal because he's as much of a penny-pincher and a credit-cart hater as I am. I think he's doing it because it makes him feel good to be able to do it. Someone he knew lent him the money when he bought his first house, so I think he sees this as a chance to repay that favor, and to keep it in the family is just that much better.

So this idiot lady is crawling up the on-ramp in front of me this morning. I'm on her ass, and as soon as the concrete wall goes away, I zoom across the white line to the left and fly all the way over to the left lane so I can get moving. When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a blue and white cop car in my rear view mirror. He followed me for a mile and even followed me down the off-ramp, but he never pulled me over.

Are Malt-O-Meal and Cream of Wheat just grits by another name? If not, what's the difference?

P.S. - I skipped class and my test last night. I now have two tests to make up in that class, but I just couldn't do it. I just didn't have it in me to go. I'm glad I skipped it.

Am I the only one who thinks Sony should sue?

a house in two weeks

Ok, after analyzing my journal I've determined the following:
  • That sixteen days from the event which precipitated the decision to buy a house, we have found a house and secured a contract on it.

  • That said contract was secured fourteen days after the actual decision was made.

  • That the sale will close 35 days after the decision was made, and we will take possession 38 days after the decision was made.
This is all very impressive to me. This happened really fast.

I dig that.

In other news, I feel like ass. My throat has been hurting since last night. This could be allergy drainage due to the fact that I ran out of allergy medication two days ago, or it could be strep throat due to the fact that Nic was exposed on the 19th. I suspect the latter since I have achy muscles and a headache as well.

pastorofmuppets is also feeling below the weather.

Nic and Xandria are also sick.

Tandra called our realtor to find out if she could show Tandra and her mother our house. Our realtor said no because the tenants there are sick today.

It's national sick day, apparently. I'm such a lemming. Just going along with whatever everybody else does.

I'm going to go home and RELAX tonight and take a hot bath and lay around the house and try to play hours of GTA:VC before I have to go to bed and go to my dad's house in the morning to move furniture around. While feeling sick. Yeah, tomorrow will suck.

Current house update: The appraisal should happen next week or the week after, as should the inspection. Closing date is still 12/12. I may start packing non-functional items such as shelf pretties and extra dishes and such this weekend. I already packed up my model car stuff.
