Alright, people make fun of me for loving them, but when 5 guys can sing and sound like a single voice, that should be impressive. Plus, how many other songs written by American bands can you think of that have lasted for so damn long?

In other news, it's snowing here. Again. Seriously. I feel vaguely like I'm in Albany except for the fact that they haven't been getting snow. The world is all sorts of fucked up. In more ways than one, really.

We're also in the midst of some air stagnation advisory through Tuesday. Which means over the next few days the air quality will continue to worsen because high pressure air higher up traps the air closer to the ground and gives it nowhere to go. So, if I go outside, I'm not supposed to breathe.

I think it's time to call the doctor yet again on Monday. I've been back here for a week now and my cough has come back in full force. I don't feel sick, just fucking tired because every time I go anywhere remotely horizontal I cough so hard I feel like I might throw up. I remember a long time ago getting a prescription for something hardcore - codeine? - for a stubborn cough that wouldn't go away. I plan to beg, plead, bribe if necessary. It's happening during the day too - I was in a practice job talk yesterday and almost had to leave because I couldn't hold the coughs back. This was while I was chain-sucking on cough drops. I always had two in my mouth. And I had taken a double dose of stupid over the counter shit that morning. So I don't know. TB. Lung cancer. Whatever the fuck it is I'm fed up.

My liver panel did come back normal, however. So that's good. I can stay on the drugs that are supposed to clear up my feet and keep drinking!

I'm already way beyond breaking my "shower before noon" rule. That's what I get for lying in bed this morning for two hours with a cat on either side. I just couldn't be bothered to get up. I want to sleep. For real.
I think I am the laziest person ever. I have no idea how to account for the last 6 hours of my life. I went to the grocery store. Watched an episode of CSI. Ordered a few hair things online (looks away, ashamed). Um. Registered for the Western. Stared at the wall, I guess?

My contacts have been acting up lately, which is really irritating. I think protein build-up is the cause, but I can't seem to get rid of it (and I'm on bi-weekly lenses, so it's not like they're terribly old). I've tried rubbing the lens in the palms of my hands with the one step solution, but it's just not cutting it. Today I bought some Opti-Free drops to add to my usual solution in the case that are supposed to help dissolve protein build-up. I'm hoping it will help. However, I'm a bit concerned now that I've removed my lenses. I'm a label, box, booklet, etc reader and I found this in the enclosed pamphlet: If you are allergic to pork or any other ingredient in SUPRACLENS, do not use this product.

I had to read it half a dozen times. But, yes, that says pork. I'd like to know what the hell pork has to do with contact lens cleaner. There's no fucking ingredient list on the box or pamphlet.
