+ It's my birthday today. I'm twenty-two!
+ My computer survived the night. It's been shutting itself off at night lately. Two days ago, I went in and jiggled all the connections, resulting in one of the hard drives ceasing to work overnight. Yesterday, I took out the flat cables and put the round ones back in. (They have better shielding.) Also, I cut myself on the corner of my videocard in there. So I think the real reason it's working now is blood sacrifice.
‒ I eventually had to admit yesterday that my throat was not sore because of all the curry I ate the day before, but because I was sick. I'm using Airborne for the first time, and I guess it's working. My lymph nodes must be the size of cats, but I still don't have any congestion to speak of. But yeah, this is not really the most convenient time.
