Last night, I almost threw up while taking my shower. Tonight, I removed "almost" from my repertoire. I don't know whether to blame the Tuna Helper I had both nights, the new allergy medicine I started taking (probably the best guess... Mom said I used to have problems with that particular active ingredient), that medicine not working and leaving my sinuses in very bad condition, tomatoes at lunch both days (although I have the same coughing problem - but much milder - whether I've had tomato or not... I don't go out of my way to avoid fructose, because I'm usually just coughing and not sick)... just the general crap in the air of my apartment finally getting to the back of my throat, or maybe even just nerves... whatever it was, I can only hope that I've gotten it out of my system, or failing that, that the malaise has the usual effect of making me highly non-drowsy as I drive to the airport. There's absolutely no way I can cancel the trip. I have, however, put the air freshener on for a bit before I turn in. Maybe that will clear the air near the bed enough to make a difference.
Today's manga: Most of the new Viz books were unavailable, but I did pick up Hunter x Hunter 3, Fullmetal Alchemist 2, Dr. Slump 2, Rurouni Kenshin 16, Flame of Recca 12, Yu-Gi-Oh Duelist 6, Prince of Tennis 8, Cosplay Koromi-chan, The One I Love, and the first book of Crayon Shin-chan, just because I have a feeling it's important. I also got the third season of Monk, then went to get my hair cut. Along the way, I realized that the GBA SP will be a perfect traveling tool, but since I'm near the end of the only game I had, I bought Minish Cap, Metroid Fusion, and Chain of Memories. Those should keep me busy when I'm not reading the various books I brought, including the two mangazines I haven't read yet.
And now, it's time to crawl into bed, shut everything off, and hope beyond hope that when the alarm goes off, I can wake up and not be as tired as I was this morning. Hopefully, I'll write an entry from the hotel tomorrow.
