Feeling - Sick. I had a sore throat all yesterday, and today I am super congested and have a fever. Going to work and walking around for almost seven hours probably didn't help much, but they were already short an employee so I just didn't tell anyone I felt like I was dying. My head literally felt (and still feels like) it's going to explode. Apparently I fell asleep on my break at work, though; My friend said she tried to wake me up but couldn't. So I had a little five minute nap and didn't even know it! Since I got home four hours ago, I've just been piddling around feeling miserable. I tried to watch a movie but our DVD player wouldn't cooperate, so I've been guzzling yarrow tea and walking around the house trying to forget how lousy I feel. It's not working.
Reading - Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I read it last year and really liked it, despite my initial doubts. Also, Our Mutual Friend by Dickens and The First World War by Martin Gilbert for school, as I said a couple posts back.
Watching - Baseball (I am actually doing this *right* now). Because of where we live, it's kind of a choice between the Oakland A's and the SF Giants. I'm supposed to root for the A's 'cause my dad says so, but I don't really have a favorite between the two teams. I must admit, though, I do enjoy watching the Giants more because there are a few players that I really like. One, Joe Panik, is a rookie as of this year - he just came up from the minor leagues in July. I initially liked him because I felt sorry for him; he looked so small and scared sitting in the dugout. I think he resembles Buster Posey in appearance, and he seems to have adopted a lot of Posey's mannerisms, actually, so I call him 'Little Buster'. He's my favorite. :) Since he came up to the majors, he has become an amazing player, and has the highest batting average on the team! He has had two 4 for 4 games, and one 5 for 5, which is really good. I always make sure I watch him when he's up - I like his batting stance and everything. And, he's pretty cute. :)
Looking forward to - Eponine having her babies! Yes, I know it's still a while away, but she's already started developing an udder and I'm getting excited! Not to say that I wasn't before, but it's actually happening now!!! Goatlings are on the way!
Listening to - Lots of movie soundtracks, including The Hobbit, Pirates of the Caribbean, and HTTYD 2. Also, Les Mis and Phantom as usual. :)
Practicing - A Pirates of the Caribbean medley on piano. The original is in the video below, although, I can't play it nearly as well as the composer. Go figure. It's still a work in progress, for the November piano recital.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my life resulting from my restlessness this evening. Being on the computer is pretty much the only thing right now that I can handle, as all my muscles are sore from the fever and I can hardly think. One good thing is that I've received 100% positive feedback on my new blog look so far! Please vote on the poll in the sidebar and tell me if YOU like it!
