A Pox On Me
Um.... Interesting story...
I had a terrible fever last night, and I woke up this morning soaked with sweat and covered in angry red boils. A quick(ish) trip to the urgent care facility confirmed my fears of Pox, chicken that is. I've escaped the "childhood disease" for 26 years only to be struck by it on the day I got a new job.

Thats right, the Universal Karmic System (UKS) shows its sick-o sense of humor by infecting me with the illness, which caused a raging fever delirium the night before what was probably the biggest interview of my life. But I soldiered on this morning and met with the President of The DR Group, a multifunction "media services" business here in lovely H'wood. They, of course, loved me and offered me the job of "Digital Sales Assistant" for more money that I can fully comprehend right now. Suffice to so it is more than I've ever made, and twice what I'm making at my current employer. Not to mention is it actually in the "industry."

I was going to start on Monday, but now I'll have to wait until my, "sores crust over." The MD at Doc-in-a-Box Rxed me some killer anti-viral meds (800mg 5x per day) so they will hopefully help the Pox run their course quicker. Until them I'm quarantined at home, awaiting the imminent itching phase.
