I'm beginning to suspect this is some kind of horrible mutant fungus that I caught wandering around in the moldy post-flood basements of Nenana. Itchy green scales and spiny ridges should be sprouting any day now. Then I shall go on a downtown rampage, devouring tasty people and looking for a place to lay eggs.
(Possibly, I should not watch so many episodes of Buffy when I have a fever.)
Also, Jake set up the antenna and we have some TV reception. I am not impressed. TV seems to have gotten even stupider while I was away from it. Jumping through a hole in the wall is now a televised game? Clearly I haven't missed much.
