1: My furnace stopped working last night. It is thus really cold in here.

2: I’ve got pneumonia again.

The timing is spectacular.

    Damn. At least you should call a doctor for dose of right antibiotics.
    Don’t you have electric heater?
    Cats should also understand that they can be used as kind of purring heater.

      I had a previously-scheduled doctor checkup this AM, which I got to early and kinda collapsed at. I was diagnosed as having pneumonia… pretty much the same horribleness as the “community acquired bronchitis” I had a bit more than a year ago: http://up-ship.com/blog/blog/?p=6439

      At least this time thd diagnosis came quickly, and I got a bucket of antibiotics.

      And yes, I spent the rest of the day in something of a coma in front of a radiant heater. The furnace repair guy came by this afternoon and swapped out a circuit board… a $300 circuit board. Arrrrgh.

      Anybody wants to donate I’d sure appreciate it…

      Last night all three of them were a well-behaved bundle of furry purring on my bed. Cold temperatures make them more sociable.

        Using a typical heating industry conversion formula, a “three dog night” roughly equates to a “seven cat night”. Your heating capacity is insufficient for your needs – you need more cats!

    Well I went and bought me an APR today. Been meaning to, but this is the right time to get around to it.

    Not sure exactly where you are (somewhere in Utah, right?) but I found this at Craigslist: http://saltlakecity.craigslist.org/app/2656546371.html

    You might consider something similar.
