I guess I should put something together for myself by way of celebration but I don't feel terribly capable of organizing a big to-do. maybe this feeling will pass but it will have to pass soon. I need to decide just where I should place myself so that my friends can stop by and wish me well. drinking doesn't do it for me right now but maybe I can think of a place that serves both beer and coffee. good coffee.
I'm freezing my ass off. today when I came in I was suffering from low blood sugar sweats and my usual sweat-like-a-horse-if-I-move-at-all sweats so I stripped off my shirt and sat here sweating and shivering at the same time and I haven't quite recovered. the heat is on in the other room and my electric heater is on in here but it's san francisco and the walls leak and the sun has not been out for two days so the insides of all the houses are about the same temperature as the outsides of all the houses now. welcome to winter. in a sec I will search for long underwear and further iterations of flannel.
the bus and the big gulp of coffee I had before the bus conspired to make me slightly nauseous on the way home and that hasn't passed yet either. I should have gotten ginger ale on the way home. I do have fizzy water which is helpful but doesn't get all the way at the problem.
I did have a bowl of cereal for dinner. the perks of adulthood.
