illness/jury duty/fire toys

I feel like shit...
Headache (not the typical daily headache that I have, either!), difficulty breathing, difficulty sleeping (as always). I'm out of pain medicine, still waiting for the closest store to open up to get some more.

I've been "on call" all week for jury duty. I've been calling all week after 5 and told to call the next day after 5. Last night, I'm told to call at 11 this morning. So, I have to figure out whether I should go back to bed for a couple of hours (I went to bed at 1 this morning... I know I know, not typical of me) or if I should just stay up now. I've been awake since 5:30.

Before I went to bed last night, I got the stuff from the back of my truck to start working on my fire toys. I've got stuff to make a staff and poi. I started to work on the poi, but then I realized, I don't know how to make the wick ball connect to the cable, so I need to call Cody and have her tell/show me some time. But the staff is pretty straight forward. Cut off the ends of the pole, attach wick to each end, wrap it up, and voila!, a fire staff. The only thing I should've done first was wrap the grip tape around the ends of the staff where the wick balls are first, because now I'm going to have a tiny gap between the wick and the tape. It probably won't matter though, as it only gets lit up at night, and no one else will notice. My only thoughts are that the heat from the flame might start the tape to come undone. We'll see.

I'm hungry. I think I'll make some hash browns... yummy!
