Wedding day

I don't know, I don't really... buy... lunch meat...

I think I'm coming down with something unpleasant. It just kind of hit me yesterday afternoon. My throat started to hurt, and this morning it was quite swollen. I don't have much of a voice. I'd almost rather have a splitting headache because I could take something for it. No sore throat remedy has ever delivered the degree of relief I'd like.

Regardless, I'm at work anyway. I have sick time, but I'd feel guilty taking the day off. I suppose I could have stayed home on the grounds that I'm contagious (which I must be -- many of my friends are exhibiting these same symptoms), but what would I have done with my day? It's just as well that I went to work.

Last night theenigma42 and I went to Broom Street Theater for 667: The Number of the Neighbor of the Beast. As usual I'm going to tell you that you should see it, but 667 is a really entertaining show. It's a comedy about the influence of paranoia in a small community. matchstyx's shows are usually allegories for the current political environment, and though 667 is no exception, the metaphor is very subtle, and the show plays almost as a straightforward comedy. If you've been curious about Broom Street but are worried about accidentally seeing something extremely violent or offensive, 667 would be a really good place to start. I'd really like to go again, and I think you should come too. 8:00, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Seven bucks.

Anyway, I have 45 minutes left at work, so I should probably, you know, do something constructive... While I'm busy with that, you can read one of those surveys that I never take because they ask too many personal questions. It's been a long time since I've filled out one of Collapse )
