MOTHERFU#@ER!!!!!!!!!! I'm still sick. I woke this morning with a throat that felt like it had been smoking 6 packs a day for the last 30 years. But the fact is I don't think I've smoked 6 cigarettes in my entire life. I can barely talk in a normal voice and I'm tired of drinking ginger tea and soup. I want french fries and cheese pizza. It's time for me to get out of this dreary sickness and to enjoy the comforts of the beautiful bay area. We're hitting insane weather. It's like summer right now, but I'm wearing a sweatshirt cause I've got the chills.

Last night, I couldn't take it anymore so I hopped on my bike and met up with Monica for a ride. It was my first bike ride in nearly a month. We ended up sweeping through the city. Enjoying the people who were on walks and enjoying the city at night. What a great place. I don't care what anybody says about San Jose. I friggin' love it.

We ended up going to a movie. Friday Night Lights starring Billy Bob Thornton. Based on a true story about a high school football team from Odessa, Texas. It was pretty good. I'm a sucker for feel good movies based on true stories, but I've definitely seen better.

The movie started at 9:30, which put us back home at nearly midnight. Probably not the smartest thing to do when you're sick. But I slept at least 9 hours and now I feel horrible. Well, it's back to the ginger tea. Yummm...

Peace, mike park
