(unlikely dreams)

zondag 5 september 2004

Well, the hurricane is strengthening a bit here. Our power hasn’t gone out (I thought I'd post one more time before that happened, if it's going to happen...), but the lights have been flickering rather ominously, and the streets are covered with leaves and small branches. There’s a police car outside, which I can’t see, but I can hear the officer talking over his megaphone, “Honey, please go inside. This is not the time to jog!” No kidding. Wonder who that was? Probably one of the sorority chicks – for those who don’t know, I live across the street from all the sorority houses. Jogging during a hurricane. Pfff. That's just great, sweetie. I hope a tree falls on you.

Anyway, I don’t see any real damage yet, but granted, I have only a very small window. I heard bangs earlier which sounded like branches being blown down onto the bicycle shed, there’s a screen door across the street which has been all but blown off its hinges, there’s a tree in that same yard which is swaying and leaning ominously close to a power line, and there’s tons of debris in the streets, but other than that… not much to note.

This cough is not getting better, and I only have one pill of the antibiotics left. That would suggest to me that it’s viral, not bacterial, since it hasn’t been touched. I’ve also got a little nasal congestion now. Guess I’ll go back to the health center on Tuesday. Oh well, at least the stomach cramps are occurring less frequently. Or maybe that’s just because I can’t stop eating?

Okay, I really, really, really am going to go do my LIN 3201 homework now. If Practical Magic happens to be playing at the same time, well, so be it.
