Hahahaha…. yah, so you know this cold I’ve been fighting? Apparently, it’s the flu. I DIDN’T KNOW!

But really, how DOES one tell the difference? I figured it was just a cold for the simple fact that 1) I didn’t feel like I was going to die, and 2) I didn’t WISH that I was going to die. But as I attempted to eat my lunch at work yesterday, and got winded from the process of eating a cracker, I figured something was wrong. But meh. What are you going to do, right?

So… I had to call Ali and tell her that we were NOT going to be hiking The Chief today. She was very understanding, and I believe her response was something like, “well DUH! What do you think I’ve been trying to tell you, jackass!?” or something equally as touching and compassionate. Ahhhh, good friends.

It really sucks, because I honestly want to go hiking! I did an interview with Kristine from the South Delta Leader yesterday, and she asked me if I felt prepared. I think I laughed at her. I am so NOT prepared. I’m realizing that more and more as the days go by, and it’s freakin’ me out, man.

I went to my site yesterday to have a look, and clicked on the Delta Hospice Press Release, and when I looked at the map of the route Ali and I will be taking up Kilimanjaro, I almost started to hyperventilate. “Only a crazy person would do that!” I said.

I’m feeling well qualified.

Anyway, I was able to get about 11 hours sleep last night, and that helped a lot. I’ll take one more day to lay low, and then I’m going to carry on.

This sucks.  *crosses arms*



*erp*… *snorfle*… HACKHACKHACK…ugh.

It is a rarity that I actually get sick. I think it has something to do with the fact that I drink about a litre of green tea each day, and then follow that up with a minimum of two litres of water. I haven’t really had a cold or anything for about 5 years or so. So I really can’t complain that I’m sick now.

Humpf. Yes I can.

I’m really not enjoying this cold. It’s not too horrid or anything, it’s just more annoying than anything. I can’t taste my green tea! I switched to yerba mate, but that still didn’t do anything. Blargh.

On the upside, at least I’m losing weight!

I was hoping that I could go to some local businesses yesterday and chat with them about my trip, and see if I could get them to donate something for the KILI GALA raffle. However, considering that everyone I meet sort of pulls back and says, “stay away from me!”, I figured that my plan may be a tad counter-productive. So I sat on the couch in my jammies and watched Ricky Gervais stand-up.

Today I am meeting with Krisitne, who is a reporter from the South Delta Leader. I really, really, really hope she doesn’t bring a photographer with her.

Ugh. Too tired to keep typing. I’ll see you all tomorrow…
