Speak for me

So, I've had a cold for about the past week. Which is SO unlike me. Normally, I get an inkling of something coming on, and tell it that I'm terribly sorry, I don't have time to be sick right now, you'll have to come back later.

Which usually works (and it's usually true, that I don't have time to be sick).

But this time, there were no looming holidays, or projects, or performances, or anything else, so I let it come. And boy, did it. I'm feeling mostly human now, but you wouldn't know it by my voice. Saturday, it was about 2 octaves lower than normal (and I don't have the girliest of voices to begin with, not since the Rail Europe retiling incident that changed my voice and my brain, and I just didn't have the money to go to the doctor, or I'd have long since received a hefty chunk from OSHA, I'm sure. But I digress......).

Sunday, I got about 2 words out first thing in the morning, and then it was done. ME, with no voice. Can you imagine the torture?!? And I was sure it would be better today, but no dice. So instead, I'll let some random quotes speak for me. This comes from my friend Psycho Kitty's blog, and it seemed interesting. Here ya go.

Vacation used to be a luxury, however, in today's world, it has become a necessity.

Refuse to be ill. Never tell people you are ill; never own it to yourself. Illness is one of those things which a man should resist on principle.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803 - 1873)

We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love, one another.
Jonathan Swift (1667 - 1745)

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862), Walden, Conclusion, 1854

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is "thank you," that would suffice.
Meister Eckhart

I'm lucky (so to speak!) in that when I get a cold/sore throat my voice goes down into this crazy sexy gravely voice. The looks I get from guys is if only I could get that look for NOT being sick! *sigh*
