I be illin'.

Boy, I go to upstate NY for a few days and the governor of Rhode Island raises the tax on food to 8%. So this morning the cost of my coffee went up 2 cents, and threw me for a loop.

We spent Friday in Glens Falls, NY with mangofandango's family. In the morning, we got wafflecremes (plate-sized waffles with a pile of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and fruit on top) from Martha's, a landmark little ice cream stand/restaurant/motel in Lake George. Then we went and saw a mediocre production of the mediocre musical "Once On An Island" by the Lake George Youtheatre group, which is considered the elite young peoples' theatre troupe in that area and receives the most funding, despite putting on shows that aren't generally any better than those put on by other troupes.

That evening, we saw Whale Rider at Aimie's Dinner & Movie. The film was just fantastic. I highly recommend it. The dinner menu offered bloomin' onions, which I love, but they actually only had onion peels, which are okay but not the same. I still enjoyed them, though.

Sarah's parents gave us two slightly-late anniversary gifts: the Gladiator soundtrack, which I absolutely love, and the Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone DVD. Yay!

Saturday we drove up to the Ausable Point Campground, where my extended family camps for a week every summer. The day started cloudy but warm, and got nice and bright and sunny by midday. I spent the day throwing footballs and frisbees on the beach with my little brother and my cousins, and swimming in Lake Champlain. I am out of shape and now all my muscles are sore! At twilight, we toasted a few marshmallows, then headed home.

We spent the night at my parents' house, then drove back to RI on Sunday. When I woke up Sunday morning, I had a runny nose and a sore throat. By Monday morning, I had developed a fever of 100.7° and a completely stuffed head. I took the day off from work and drank a lot of water and tea. That afternoon, Sarah had her IUD finally inserted (after weeks of coordinating schedules and playing phone tag with the gynecologist), which has given her massive cramps for the last day now. That was expected, though, and they're supposed to go away after two or three days.

Now I'm at work again.

i didn't see Island, but for what it's worth, Fiddler of the Roof was very good.

I know what you mean. my iced tea usually costs 1.61, now it's 1.62! At least it's an even number, but still! I didn't even know they were doing that! Granted I don't read the news paper or watch the news... I just think that it's rediculous!
