Korean VA

I might have been too hasty about that immune system thing

I told you that post was courting hubris. Just as the flu symptoms started to wane, I began developing some sort of new and exciting ailment. Actually, it's very cold-like, except that it's only on the right side of my throat and mouth. Naturally, I figured I had tongue cancer, but I figured I'd best go in to see the doctor and confirm my scientifically backed diagnosis.

Turns out it's an infection of some sort, either in my tonsils or sinuses. Maybe both. Regardless, both are treated with antibiotics--one of the most popular over-prescribed American drugs, along with ritalin. I'll start the antibiotics tonight and then hopefully I can go back to posting smug immune system entries.

In other news, I might have also bitten off more than I can chew with the Vampire Academy contest entries. Dude, I had no idea you guys were going to do such a good job. If you haven't read the entries yet, you really need to check them out. The contest is mirrored in both Blogger and LiveJournal, and each have some pretty awesome candidates. This is going to be harder than I thought. But not as hard as coming up with a title for the VA sequel seems to be.
