JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #104: Loraine to Niagra

I managed to not get sick over Christmas, but I really just spent the weekend biding my time until the cold hit full-force. I think it was the partial solar eclipse on that really set me off. Fortunately, it wasn't until Thursday that I started to feel it. Unfortunately, it kinda messed-up my plans for New Years.

The best part, though (aside from sheer amazement at the amount of ... umm ... stuff one can secrete) is the delusional dreams I have. It's my own private acid trip. The other day I had a great one: I was in a dingy basement of Ronald McDonald's house. I was climbing around on the plumbing and stuff when Ronald told me not to mess with the oil tank. I poked at it a bit and someone else told me not to because Ron's wife was in there. Apparently she had been in an accident or got sick or something, so he made this suspension chamber and put her inside. I guess she was sort-of awake inside but there weren't any windows or anything.

That's pretty much it. It doesn't make any sense to me either, but it does make me think twice about going to McDonald's.

Which reminds me (I'm so bad at segues) I was up for the pretty-cool (numerologically at least) 01:01 a.m. on 01/01/01. This is what it would have looked like on my cell phone had I snapped a picture at that point. I just took a picture of the phone around 4 in the afternoon and doctored the picture, but you get the idea. (Interestingly, the solar eclipse picture is for real, albeit through a piece of mostly opaque mylar, with a much-too-short lens, and with a much-too-grainy film.)
