Last I left you, I was getting over a cold and a week and a half later I am still getting over it. I basically have this smoker’s cough that won’t go away. It’s especially bad when I exert myself or am outside in the cold air. And by exert myself, I mean walk on flat land to my place of work. I’ve been to the doctor twice for this. The first time I got some antibiotics and now I have an inhaler and some narcotics for bedtime. Between this funky funk and a concussion I’ve been to the doctor 4 times in 4 weeks and met my insurance deductible for prescriptions for the year in 2. It’s pretty ridic, but at least the inhaler seems to be helping. I can breathe deep again, which is always a good thing. I just hope this shit is temporary and I don’t get the pleasure of developing asthma. I have the symptoms, they just better be sickness aftermath.
On the other side of the coin, I bought an ipod. I was definitely late on the ipod bandwagon, but I’m in love. It’s great. The sound quality is so much better than the last time I had one. And I definitely felt BOSS pulling up to Best Buy 10 minutes before closing time and laying down some serious plastic. The irony was that usually Best Buy is littered with annoying geek squad minions asking you if you need assistance every half minute. But, when I actually wanted to buy some electronicy goodness, I had a hell of a time getting someone to open the case for me. In any event, an ipod will definitely spice up my work life ; ). I had planned on getting the purple nano, but after seeing the green one in person I was profoundly attracted to it and had to get it.
And in other news, I realize it’s been a year since Brian and I broke up. And it still annoys me. I never got why he had such an effect on me. I guess I liked him more than I thought. Even though I realize we aren’t good for each other I can’t seem to purge the ill will out of my mind. I guess there’s also the “It’s been a year since I’ve dated someone” blues. Hopefully good things are in store for me soon. I’m ready for my luck to change. Fortunately, this video has been cheering me up. It’s cheesy in all the right ways:
