Friends, Family and Flu

This has been a fun past couple of days.

Last night we invited local exmos over to our house and had a great time. I nearly broke my back cleaning the place, but it was well worth it. We had lots to laugh about, and we were able to get to know each other a little better. It's nice to know that in this surreal bubble that is Utah County there are others who are like-minded.

Something I learned last night: when a bartender mixes lime juice with vodka (making a kamikaze) he's not just using freshly squeezed limes. He's using something with a LOT of sugar; probably something like limeade. Well let me just testify that 2 wedges of lime squeezed into a shot of vodka is NOTHING like a kamikaze. Oh my god, it was bad. Next time I'll stick to Malibu and Cran. Can't really go wrong with that...

Today my mom had a family dinner at her house in honor of 2 birthdays. I always love my family get-togethers. Even though there is often yelling and/or arguments, you can bet there is always loud laughter and lewdness. We all know it's dinner time at mom's when excrement or sex comes up as a topic of conversation. We are a unique family, but no way in hell would I change that.

On a darker, more painful note, I think I have a titch of the flu. My sister, the nurse, diagnosed me with minor flu OR malaria. Either way, I've been having nighttime fevers which don't allow me to sleep very well. I think I'm taking Nyquil tonight. That stuff knocks me out. I have no other symptom other than a fever at night. So maybe I'm slowly dying of malaria. Damn mosquitoes in Utah in January!

Okay, okay let's calm down now. You never know who is reading your blogs now. I think I am going to look into this blog thing. I am lacking an outlet for my frustrations too!!!!!
