08:48 am - Bleargh goes the night
Yesterday evening started out pleasantly enough. Ericka and I watched Princess Mononoke, a film I like a lot. We finished about 8:00 p.m., about an hour before I usually get started getting ready for work. I decided to take a bit of a nap before work rather than staying awake and puttering about the house idly.

Well, I was awake 15 minutes later in a cold sweat. Checked my temp and it was in the normal range. Every time I curled up in blankets, though, I would get clammy. I eventually ended up calling in to work, saying I had a fever. (Not strictly true, I think, but about as close as I could get without seeing a doctor.)

So this is another day of work missed due to some random illness. Even more evidence that I'm not cut out for this kind of schedule. I've had some calls from head-hunters this week and indicated that I'm ready for a new gig any time. No word back from any of those, but I find it interesting that they have called out of the blue only shortly after I committed myself to finding something new to do with my life.

Some sleep is on the schedule now, so I better get to it.

Have you considered the possibility that you were experiencing clammy sweat because the humidity at 8pm last night was about 99% and the temperature at least in the high 70's? When I tried to do anything that didn't involve sitting directly in front of a fan, I was covered with sweat too. Breathing wasn't too easy either. I think we were in a major air inversion of some kind. What a relief when the thunderstorm finally rolled in!

Hmm. Possible. We are centrally air-conditioned, though, so I would expect that our humidity in the house is relatively stable. Though if the house was cool enough, an increase in humidity alone wouldn't trigger the AC.

I'll keep it in mind, though, thanks for the additional data!
