Zapped.Â Zapped.Â Zapped.
Completely out of energy, that is.
Brandon and I crashed out last night just before 9 p.m. after a sun-drenched afternoon in Redondo Beach at Justin & Olaina’s.Â You know me.Â Unless you put a beverage right in my hand, I have a tendency to forget to hydrate.Â My ice cold bottle of water never left Olaina’s cooler-backpack.
So sometime before my alarm went off this morning, I woke up radiating heat without actually sweating.Â By now I knew what I was getting into.Â I downed a glass of water with a couple of Tylenols, threw some cold water on my face and neck, and went back to bed.Â No sleep could be had.Â At least my head didn’t hurt.Â Thank god for that.
However, between then and when the alarm sounded, I found myself shivering…while still feeling like I was radiating heat.Â That a glass of room temperature water cooled my core temperature down to a point that I get the shiver couldn’t possibly be a good idea.
I called in sick.
And I slept.Â And I woke up to drink another glass of water with a couple more Tylenol.Â Shivered some more and I slept.Â The rest of the day was mostly nodding off on the couch and drinking water.Â The shivering and the radiating went away and I got nauseated instead.Â Fun.
I pretty much slept through the day until Brandon woke me up to feed me Tylenol and ask if I had enough energy to go see Dark Knight.
What did you think I say?Â 😉
I managed not to throw up or fall asleep at the theater.Â But boy was it hard to maintain the energy to sit up like that.
Heath Ledger.Â That boy knew how to go out with a bang, rest his soul.Â It seriously wasn’t about Batman movie.Â It was the Joker movie with Batman in it.Â As a matter of fact, I felt like everyone else stole the movie from Batman.Â The Joker. Harvey Dent…with whom I am totally in love currently.Â Gordon.Â Alfred.Â And even Replacement Rachael…which is mass improvement from Katie Holmes, by the way.
Suddenly, Christian Bale wasn’t the star of the movie.Â Everyone else was.
Oh, and note to the movie maker for the next installment.Â Can you PLEASE stop the super low, super rumbly Bat talk?Â Either that or start putting subtitle in there.Â It was getting worse at the end of the movie.Â It has become almost caricature of the drama and the action that we’ve been watching this whole time.Â Thanks.
Brandon thinks that all of my stressing out last week had finally being released from me.Â It has quietly manifested itself since Monday and I haven’t been able to get rid of it completely.Â Well, the overheating was the catalyst no less, but all the sleep I’ve done today was a sign.
I’m ready for tomorrow now.
