Sick

I had an asthma attack yesterday. For those of you not lucky enough to have asthma, it basically feels like a giant animal is stepping on your chest. I always picture a huge horse.

Anyway, I thought for a minute there that I was going to pass out in front of 600 people. Managed to make it through and went to the doctor afterwards, where I was given a liberal dose of steroids and told that it was probably just a cold. Sure enough, I woke up this morning and the horse had moved to the inside of my face.

So I'm sick again. In order to make me feel a little bit better, my doctor gave me a teapot/watering can-looking thingy called a neti pot. You fill it with water and a dash of salt, insert it into one nostril, and let the mixture run in one nostril and out the other. It's a little bit weird at first, but it starts to feel good after a while. Geez, I'm learning all sorts of crunchy hippy-type things in my Sleepy Hamlet.

And, on the subject of finding a good purpose for this blog, I may have found one. I'm moving to a major city at the beginning of next year, but it may be a different one than I originally intended. So it could be about my super-fun adventures in a Big City. More on this situation as it develops...

I had a friend in college who could drink beer through his nose. He'd walk up and join a conversation at a party and then he'd unexpectedly hold his beer up to his nose, tilt his head back and take a big swig of beer.

And guess what. He's now a neurosurgeon. Scary, huh?

I'm not sure how I feel about the new look. It's a bit too weekend on the beach for me. I'm not sure it fits with your presonality but hey, that's my opinion.

Now I want to know what City you're moving to ...

Yeah, I'm not sure about the new look, either, but I haven't had enough time to sit down with it and really play. Maybe tonight or t'm'row...

Agree with the beachy thing...

The thing with the nose...ew. Beer AND saline. What about people who can drink milk and make it squirt out of their eye?

I don't care what city I get to after this just as long as it ISN'T HERE!
