The original fake suzieking.
I like weird things for breakfast. Especially when I'm sick. I can't taste much right now, so I went for texture...a bowl of green beans. One of the more satisfying breakfasts I've had in a while. I'm subsisting on ~600 calories a day right now, because I have no appetite. I blame the antibiotics, there's only one kind that I don't get stomach problems on, and I'm not on it this go-round. On the upside, my pants that were slightly-too-tight for the past couple of weeks are fitting quite nicely again.|
There's something I forgot to mention that happened a few days ago: I was very nearly in an awful car wreck. In Texas, all highways have frontage roads, and at every major intersection there is a huge overpass going over the freeway. I was driving home after rehearsal on Thursday night, and I was on the frontage road and on my way up the access ramp. All of a sudden, I see a funny shadow two cars ahead of me, and a little tiny crunching noise, and everyone slams on their brakes. As it turns out, a car drove off of the overpass and fell into the access tunnel. The highway was raised, so this fall was probably about 20 feet. I didn't see it until backing out of the highway and onto the frontage road, but it was terrible. It was a big suv that had flipped, and the roof looked crushed almost down to the hood. Somehow, they didn't land on anybody, and I was thanking whatever powers that be that I didn't decide to pass the two slow cars ahead of me before hitting the highway, because then I would have been underneath this falling SUV. I've tried to look for updates on the accident, to see if people were badly hurt, but I can't find anything. I'm going to assume that means that all involved were more or less alright.
I'm trying to get geared up to get some new glasses today. It's occurred to me that I'm not going to be able to see the stage clearly with my old prescription, so I need to get the new ones I've had the prescription for for months now. Plus, the ones I have now kind of look like crap, because I bought them in a hurry in East Bumfuck a couple of years ago.
