|the syndrome that has no name

(fine, it probably has a name)
I had a nice birthday weekend with lots of celebrating and stuff, which may have led to whatever the hell happened to me.
The defining symptom is a sore throat, although calling it a "sore throat" doesn't do it justice in my opinion. Feeling feverish (although the actual presence of a fever is somewhat in dispute) and having chills are pretty important parts. Stomach queasiness and a general malaise are secondary but still fairly prominent.
I'm feeling somewhat better today, although my throat still hurts (time for another painkiller!) and I'm pretty low-energy.
Saturday we walked around downtown (djedi's sister Leigh Ann was staying with us) and went to the Alamo Ritz which is a very nice theater. We saw "Smart People" which was an odd but fun movie, and before the show they had old educational science videos which was pretty awesome.
