Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

Gah, I hate monsoon season

Didn’t have to retreat yesterday, water was up, but didn’t quite make it to the back door. Spent the day making a custom kennel for a regular client. Will spend the next two completing a six stall unit.

The problem is mold and fungus. When the water comes up after a warm spell, both are in high counts and get stirred up.

I have a minor allergy to molds. I can handle small doses with minor irritation, but large doses cause my body immune system to go into Overdrive with a nitrous boost system installed.

1730; body temp is 102, have a fire going in house preparing for a sub freezing over night temp and I am shaking with chills.

1930; seriously hot shower to try and break the fever, can feel the sinuses flaring, realize I am having minor hallucinations (molds or just high temp? Dunno, definitely imagining strange shit.)

Straight to bed under covers, big bottle of water at hand, house temps hovering over 80. GrumpyKat wakes me around 2300 demanding water in her bowl. Feel great. And sweating like I am sitting in a sweat lodge (hey! I am! situation normal,,,) prop open the door for 10 minutes and damper the stove to bring the temps down to the mid seventies range, grab a big swig of water to replace what I’ve sweated out and back to bed.

Since I am back down there again today, I will be wearing my respirator today. I can’t handle late night arguments with imaginary Exs whispering in my ears. (Thats how I knew it was an hallucination)

Because of my afterwork adventure in immunology and ghostly visitations, I am not up to speed with the rest of the Kabuki theater. I’ll play catch up as can during breaks today.
