16 mosquito bites ALL over my legs. I've got this one huge mosquito bite that is actually three interconnected. Curse you, insect scum!
Phil is using Fruity behind me and he's making all sorts of annoying sounds, basically because he's playing the same loop over and over.
I'm very tired. It was freenight last night, I stayed up until about 3 and had to wake up at 10:00, which is not a normal wake-up time for freeday. I grumbled and grumbled all the way in the car; I get home and can't sleep because the computer addicts have nabbed my fan. My head is swimming.

But I'm happy.

Strangely, there are so many little things that should be making me angry right now, but there's one thing that manages to make me happy.
I feel like one of those weirdos with a static smile in some kind of foggy euphoria, head tilted slightly to one side, looking pathetic and clueless.

Oh well. I'm happy.

You poor dear. I feel for u.

It's strange, I'd been getting less & less mosquito bites over the past few yrs, & the ones I did get wld only last an hr or 2 at most, that I thot I was becoming immune to them.

Then when I came to ur Hm, Elaina tells me the mosquitoes there are very friendly -- they hardly bother u at all & if they do bite, u just get an itty-bitty bump to show for it; I ended up getting probably the same amount of bites I got the whole of last summer, & they were the enduring kind, too -- in only 1 wk!

So I empathize w/ u, Flo, but more power to u for being happy anyway! :D

the mosquitoes in Mexico (Saltillo) are HORRIBLE!!! And they're toughies too. you cant just slap your leg and squish them. Soo very annoying. But, i think since becoming pregnant they bother me less.
Flo, you're so good at being happy.

Whoa, I somehow thought that post was more grumbling than happiness. Weird. And it's not as if I'm happy for no reason...
