I feel really exhausted. But not just tired — almost an "uh oh, here comes the flu" kind of feeling. I haven't been ill in 4eva. Hopefully I'm just beat from going to bed so late and getting up so early. My temperature is about 99F, which is probably about normal (although I thought my body temperature was colder at night). Well, we'll find out in the morning. I've pumped up with vitamins and Echinacea, so with any luck if it is some bacteria or virus, my body will fight it off. I'm really tempted to take a Tylenol PM. I know it would make me feel better, but if I am indeed sick it might stop any fever that might come overnight. I'd rather not declaw my body's defenses.

Anywho... today was "interesting". It was so nice outside, I initially wanted to go to Century City mall and eat lunch outside. But then I thought about Memphis Rotisserie. I grabbed coworkers Marietta and Gina and off we went! After we ate, I wanted to go walk down the promenade and was going to say something, but when I looked out, it was all gloomy and overcast. So I was content to just sit there and chat. It was a little before 2:00 when Gina notices people walking fast and kinda running north on the Promenade. I didn't really see anything that looked odd other than some transient getting someone out of the photo booth and getting in himself. And for Santa Monica, that's not even really all that odd.

A little after 2:00, we headed back to the office. That's where I saw an email from a friend about what happened on 3rd Street. "Ah. That's why people were running." I listened to NBC do their usual, "We don't want to speculate, but what do you think happened there, Bob?" (Seriously, the announcer said that... except for the "Bob" part. I don't remember the name). It was really horrific when you think about it. Coincidentally, I talked about how the Farmers' Market annoyed me at 3rd Street because it created traffic and attendees took up valuable summer parking spaces. From the first hand accounts, it sounded pretty gruesome.

Of course in the ultimate show of irreverence I made a satirical logo/cartoon about it. But you're going straight to hell if you giggle.
