Typhoid Mary and Ice Cream Sandwich Soup

Well, I decided to go to work today. Made it through about an hour before I went home. Even before I walked through the door, my manager was saying to let her know if I needed to go home. After an hour of dozing off on the counter and seeing the horrified looks on the faces of the customers in my line when they realized that Typhoid Mary was their cashier, I decided that she was right and that I needed to be at home, asleep, in bed.

I got home to discover that my refrigerator was now deceased. It had been on the verge for a day or two -- I had the coldness setting cranked all the way up to 9, and still the motor wasn't kicking in -- but when I got home everything inside the fridge was room temperature (note: this seems to have changed yet again sometime during the past few hours, as it now feels cold inside once again. Nevertheless, I think the verdict of "broken" still applies). I called Catherine, and moved my perishables to the mini fridge on the porch.

Took a much needed nap for a few hours until Catherine called to deal with the fridge situation (it's 2' by 2' -- much too small a space to fit the free fridge that someone offered her yesterday, which blows). Now I'm awake and feeling a really strong urge to smoke, which is kind of surprising me -- aren't the urges supposed to be diminishing? And unixd0rk said that I'm being a good influence on him and helping him to not smoke, which I find really touching.

So OK, off to take more antibiotics. And why does my neck hurt so much?
