My system is under attack. Attack began yesterday with tiredness, difficulty concentrating, and an aching jaw. As the battle proceeded, jaw pain became worse, and was accompanied by mild headache, the feeling that my ear had a hole through it directly into my head, and a sore throat.

Woke up this morning feeling a bit better (jaw pain gone, sore throat diminished), but still under the weather. I decided to continue to abstain from the battlefield and let my subordinates handle the combat. Three hours of napping later, I'm feeling significantly better. Still sick, though, definitely.

In other news, Lenovo managed to ship me my laptop AFTER I cancelled the order. I have return tags, and I'm not afraid to use them.

How on earth did ordering a laptop end up being such a clusterfuck?

*comforts* Feel better! Sounds like a vicious head cold; hopefully it's not flu. Nap, drink water, and plot your righteous vengeance upon the incompetents of Lenovo. That's what I do when I'm sick!

Well, not Lenovo specifically. But otherwise.

Hope the headcold gets better. Do you have a yummy hot tea?

Yeah, sometimes the laptop factory is faster than the request not to bother building it. If they get halfway through, they'll normally just keep building it. Heck, if you don't want it, someone else will. I'm guessing the discount they give you is fairly heavy for being a Microsoft employee (based on HP's 5-15%), they may be able to get almost as much for the laptop refurbished.

I cancelled it around two weeks ago. They shipped it about 3 days ago. I'm failing to understand this.

I hope you feel better.

I'm sorry that I can't give you any kind of real advice. Under attack from what?

Isn't biology interesting? Now, every time I get sick, I wonder what's happening. If I only had some good diagnostic equipment... does anybody know where you can get an MRI machine really, really cheap?

(The few times I've watched House, I try to guess the diagnosis before House does. I've never managed to do this, but sometimes I console myself with the thought that the show itself cheats.)

Probably some form of rhinovirus... though I'm not sure that explains the jaw.

...House is fun to watch, but yes, it's insane and they cheat.

Excuse me, I've read some of your comments in Tigerpheonix' journal from time to time and became intrigued. I hope you are well and that the comp company gets their collective heads out of their rumps so you don't have to worry about anything but enjoying your weekend.

I've linked to you if you don't mind. Come join me if you care to, I'm a friends only journal, but you are welcome to link in. *waves* Be well!

Thanks. Feel free to hang around, though I don't think I'm that interesting. ^^
