Hmm. I thought I was coming down with something - headache, scratchy throat - and then I found chicken-pox-like bumps on my stomach. And they itch. I've heard you can get chicken pox twice, but my first case was so bad that I doubt I could. Richard thinks they're hives. I hope I haven't developed an allergy to critters, 'cause if so I'll just have to suffer - once an animal comes to live here, it's got a home for life.
Anyway, just relaxing and reading 2012 by Daniel Pinchbeck and Gone Baby Gone by Dennis LeHane. It's not on my reading list but I couldn't resist; Mystic River was really, really good.
Some flat-out disturbing search terms used to find this blog today:
- HIV toddler symptoms
- Is full-blown AIDS contagious?
- Tupperware weekly meetings
I've addressed this spooky AIDS denialism a little bit, but I now feel it's something I'm going to have to explore in a lot more depth... soon! For now I'll just say: Whether AIDS is contagious or not, pretend that it is, okay? Please?
