Vegas: the inevitable low point

This morning I woke up too early and couldn’t get back to sleep. I have a stinking head cold, which Kat tells me is actually a reaction to all the AC out here. Whatever it is, it’s a sore throat, a stuffy head, and a semi runny nose. Combined with the headache I’ve had almost constantly and I just generally felt like crap.

But today I had scheduled two prepaid events. A ren fair, then a show this evening. So I dragged myself out, hopped on a bus and headed out to Sunset Park. The travel took a while, but I didn’t mind. I got into a couple of conversations. When I got off the bus though I was presented with a nice long walk across the park, in direct bright sunlight, to what turned out to the the wrong end of the fair. So I had to walk around the huge fenced area just to get in. And on that walk around I slipped in gravel and went over on my bad ankle.

So after I looked at a few stalls of pretty things on my way to the food area to get a drink, I sat here at a bench under a giant parasol and I’m not feeling great. Sick, sun stroked, worried about if my ankle will be okay. And because I don’t feel well, I’m homesick too.

It’s not too bad in the shade. There’s cool music, there’s lots of interesting costumes to look at. I want to go browse all the shopping stalls, but I’m now scared to move. Sat here I feel okay. If I start walking and go into the sun I’ll feel like shit within minutes. Bah. Why couldn’t the weather have stayed cool and cloudy like it has been all week?
