Argh!

Okay, so, with the best of intentions, I enter the weekend ready to cram my ass off to take that test on Wednesday and pass it.

So I wake up with a sore throat on Saturday. By Saturday night, full-blown cold. I slept all day Sunday, could not focus enough to read anything, much less actually study. Called in sick today. Slept most of the day. Took two practice exams, trying to catch my weak spots. I got a 52%, then a 55%. I still can't really focus on reading (certainly not absorbing anything I read). Argh, argh, ARGH!!!

There's no way in hell I'm going to pass this test. Damn it. At least I have tomorrow. Throat still hurts a little, but I'm generally better, just not focused. At all.

Pray for me.

McCain's up in the polls, dead even with Obama now. And there are folks who think the Democrats have a chance in heck? We're gonna lose again, because that good ol' 51% thinks his sexy librarian VIP's the bee's knees. And I sob for my country.

Argh, again.

Oh, and, of course: Adopt one today!

Maybe when I'm done blowing this test I can get back to playing around with dragons. Thanks to all for the clickies to help my other babies grow up!

Thanks.

I'm forcing myself in to work this morning, but I don't know how long I'll last.

That pretty much sucks all round. ::hugs:: (And I clickied on all the eggs and suchlike, so I don't know why that one didn't make it.)

My own fault for putting things off so long, but honestly, I don't know that I'd retain much if I'd learned it sooner and didn't study hard this last weekend...

So far I've lost none of 'em (knock wood); this last little one just hatched so has another week.

Ohhhh, I thought something bad had happened to it. I'll go click on the baby now.

I'm still trying to get more, even! LOL! Silly me.

The only baby I have left is the little white one, third in the generational line. (Now I have to come up with a name for her that goes - Cloudchime, Snowchime...)

Oh no! [[[HUG]]]

Give me a ring if you want me to bring ginseng roots (for a sweet-tasting herbal tea, it's my secret exam weapon) over and give them a try. I also give good neck and shoulder rubs if you think that can help with the studying.

I always love a neck and shoulder rub! But the test is tomorrow morning, so all I can ask for at this point is good wishes! I've been studying all afternoon, so now I just have to hope for the best!
