ok, this sucks. i had a raging fever all the way over on the plane, and developed a sore throat so bad i can hardly swallow. paul took me to the home of a doctor friend, who wrote me a prescription for penicilin. hope it works fast.
[[update: sorry to bore you with personal health crap; but this stinks. this morning (tuesday) i’m worse. i’ve never experienced this kind of pain in my throat before — just about want to rip it out! i cringe and break out into a sweat every time i have to swallow. i guess the emergency room — or something similar — is in order today]]
