Here is something we all can relate to.

I have a cold! A cold that is eating my soul. Given the staggering number of antiwhatevers that I am taking, I have no idea how I caught a cold. But catch one I did. The good news is that I must have enough white cells to fight it because I haven't gotten a fever, and I haven't died yet. What happens tomorrow, however, remains to be seen. I don't think this will delay my chemo though, which is also good news. I distinctly remember coming down with a cold once when I was in the hospital, and everyone just sort of ignored the fact that I sounded like a man and continued on with the administration of chemotherapeutic drugs. So, alright! Rock on.

Aside from the typical stuffiness and head-pounding associated with colds, I feel pretty good. I am beginning to pack up all my stuff for Boston. I should be in my apartment two weeks from today! Hoorah. I have, so far, plenty of kitchen utensils, a few plates, and some silverware. I do not, as of right now, actually have a bed. But I have received word that my mattress pad from last year is awaiting my return. So I might be sleeping on a foam pad under a blanket of forks in two weeks, but that's okay. I am still super excited (and apparently a strong supporter of sibilance). I just need next week's chemo to go swimmingly. And on that note, have a happy hump day and whatnot. I'm going to get me some sleeps. Peace.

Bahahahaha, did you ever see that SNL where Tom Hanks is the microphone tester for on Wayne's World? Sibiliance, sibilance. Sibilance, sibilance. Hilarious, in case you couldn't tell.

Yaaaaaay two weeks. Boooooo head colds.

I have t bug Katie to call the girl whose bed I'm no longer going to be sleeping on...also, if you feel like craigslisting it up, I will check them out for you.

Hi Caroline-- this is Rachael from the Pro Shop. I hope everything goes well and you are able to make the trip back to Boston safely. I'm sorry to hear that you have a cold. I'm getting over one myself actually, but I know that it in no way compares to yours! I would be frustrated by that too. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon! Let me know if you need anything at all. When you're in Boston, know that I'm only a phone call away (and probably at FitRec).
