I am the same age as the Kiefer Sutherland show. Jack Bauer will hunt you down and kick your ass in as many hours as I have lived years on Earth.

For my birthday, my immune system went on holiday and gave me a fever. Today, Fate has seen that fever and has raised a sore throat. Which was wonderfully fun for teaching all day, lemme tell you. Aside from feeling chilled and having my eyes ache the way they always do when I have a fever, people commented that they could see me wince every time I took a sip of tea. Stupid work, not letting instructors take sick days.* >.<

At least I can be relatively well-assured that it isn't strep throat. I don't have tonsils, haven't since I was eight years old.

Sadly, though, I have to try and nip this in the bud tonight so it doesn't screw up the rest of my week. Which means I have to skip on dinner out and socializing with various peeps, and it also means the apartment remains not-so-clean for another night. But! I have every excuse in the world to sit on my ass, bundled under many blankets, doing nothing strenuous. And simming and deathmatching are not strenuous. Go me!

At least my sister got me a real present: a Victoria's Secret GC. New naughties for Minna!

Also, Remy got me something, but it's still en route to our front door, so I don't know what it is yet.

Mom and Ray gave me birthday money, which, as I mentioned before, was stolen when the package that contained it was gutted by some unknown fuckwad.

*- A part of me is perversely tempted to get sick enough one of these days so that I end up collapsing in a dead faint mid-class (which happened the one time I had bacterial pneumonia, only that was years ago and I fainted at home, fortunately). Then let's see the bastards defend their policy in front of the students, heh heh heh.

I totally would fake it. Or course, I pass out for no reason at all according to the doctors in the ER, so you could always use that.

It's really embarrassing to pass out or black out and have no excuse. But use it to fake it and show how evil the policy is!!

Hehe! I'd just be afraid of not faking it so well. A real faint would be better. Like, the last time I fainted, I fell backward and smacked the back of my head against a hardwood floor. No way I could accomplish that if I was faking! ;)

The BEST would be:

Step 1: Get a 5 day class
Step 2: Come in day 1 with severe strep, a terrible flu, a stomach virus. Something very contagious, very unpleasant, and with a short incubation period.
Step 3: Wait until Day 3 or 4, when 2/3 of the class calls in sick with what you gave them.
Step 4: Direct them to the complaints department.

LOL! I'd feel bad for the students, but that small group would probably spare hundreds of others from catching something from their instructors!
