i have been sick for the last 3 days, i took half of wednesday off. thankfully the worst of it is over. i am getting apartment fever from being in the same place for too long. last time this happened i went back to work but i don’t want to make anyone sick there with all my sneezing and gross germs.
last night braeden came by and we watched the hockey game. he’s in town for a few weeks which is rad. charles also came by with some secret vitamin pills and i’ve been taking those with coldFX and i think i will have this bug beat by the end of the weekend. i’m feeling pretty run down right now.
i was going to go to vancouver this weekend but now obviously that would be a bad idea, so i’m staying here. it’s weird to think about taking the bus to north van to visit my brother anand since the last time i did that, i actually lived in north van. so i wouldn’t have a place to trundle to. bizarre. this is around the time last year that i was just settling in to my place in north vancouver and questioning why the iPod doesn’t handle video.
the piece of music i have been fiddling around with is stuck in my head even though i stopped playing around with it a couple hours ago. not sure what to do with it really.
my throat is itchy

skeletor

kay first check out this video:
he-man does four non blondes (yes it is safe for work)
okay it is my thought that skeletor, when he was alive, was a chicago gangster, 30’s or 40’s era. the only difference between the way he speaks and the gangster is

  1. he is more nasal
  2. that awesome reverb on his voice

alison was like “well how do you know he was ever alive” and i think you can’t be dead unless you were once alive.
so there you have it.
amazing discoveries.
