080213 Thaikarl - i annoyed the ghosts.
i'm laid low by somekind of bacteria bug. sore throat, nose, lungs etc. Tok tells me that i may have angered the ghosts and they made me sick. Or i picked up a bug somewhere. she took me to the clinic. nice doctor, checked me over, prescribed meds and off we go. total cost: $6.00, and that was mostly for the meds. so i'm fever/on, fever/off, feeling okay, to back in bed again. sooner or later my body will have been exposed to all the strange bugs that we don't have in the states, and i wont get sick from these things. Tok takes very good care of me.
we had a visitor the other day: a Coelognathus radiatus (Copperhead Rat Snake). we didn't know if it was dangerous or not (it's not poisonous) so we were a little delicate handling it. well i was trying to be, but Tok was a little more nervous about it, and kept warning me to get away, which spooked the snake even more, so it would go hide in even a more difficult place. finally flushed it out with the hose, and it hi-tailed it along the back fence and slithered into the neighbors yard.
