restroom dreams

so last night's toilet was a one-seater but it was also non-functional. when i opened the lid and the whole thing fell off the drain pipe at the bottom i knew i was still asleep. so i relaxed and my body slowly spun head over heels until it swam up into my real bed and i awoke to the pleasant realization that our toilet always works.

today i seem only to have a cough. the sore throat has relented and i have yet to suffer nasal congestion. somewhere online just a few days ago i read that if you have cold symptoms above the neck and are feeling your normal energy level then you are probably ok to engage in your regular exercise, whereas if you have symptoms below the neck and/or have a fever and/or feel fatigued you should remain quiet. since this cough seems to be originating from congested lungs rather than scratchy throat i guess this means no five mile walk for me today. i took my walk on sunday somewhat unsure if a sore throat could be classified as above or below the neck and i felt like doo-doo afterwards.

i must think today though. the application for the big honkin fellowship that i have my heart set on is due friday evening and i need to rework my statement. i think. at the very least i need to come up with a cv which will be a bit slim since i have published nothing yet.

i don't want to do it. they should just give me money. can't they see i'm worth it?
