Still sick (now a sinus infection). More computer problems. Another week of uploading, downloading, replacing, and spending an inordinate amount of time on the phone talking to specialists in El Salvador (now a new hard drive). More extended summer heat (mid-eighties, everyday). No exercise. Exhaustion. Same dirty car. Shit.
Music for the times:
Peggy Lee: Fever.mp3
Squirrel Nut Zippers: La Grippe.mp3
Paul Burch: Polio.mp3
Johnny Bond: Sick, Sober, And Sorry.mp3
Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard: TB Blues.mp3
Neil Young: Tired Eyes.mp3
The Pogues: The Sick Bed of Cuchulainn.mp3
The Smiths: Still Ill.mp3
Then there's this one that, I swear, the computer was humming to me in its state of self-confident derision as I bumbled and fumbled my way back to a working condition; I am decidedly not computer savvy. Sweating, pulling my hair out, sighing in defeat, I felt like I was dealing with Hal 9000.
Well, there is always next week. Keep on the sunny side.
