i'm (begrudgingly) back from california where i spent a very lovely few days in the desert, and visited one of my favorite places in the world. it was all very warm and relaxing until i was cursed by one of the worst cases of food poisoning i have ever had. i don't think i have ever thrown up so much in one day in my life.
and now i have laryngitis. when i manage to speak i sound like a squeaky door.
the fun never stops!
