Antiobiotics please?  
Okay, so I finally broke down and called the Doctor about this stupid sinus infection that is slowly leeching away my life.

Who wants to bet that because I have an appointment tomorrow at 4pm that I'm going to have a miraculous recovery at exactly 3:59pm tomorrow, just so that I can look like a dumb ass in front of my doctor?

Don't mind me, I'm feeling kind of low at the moment. I'm going to go to bed now, and finish reading a gorgeous gothic romance novel about a gorgeous 19th century Doctor who keeps a head in a jar and grows maggots. His son's governess is in love with him. It's better than it sounds, really. *giggle* *cough*
Current Mood: sicksick

I ended up with some prescription strength cough syrup, and a refill on my asthma inhaler. He said I was too far recovered to warrant any antibiotics. Go figure.

And the book was really good, even if it was rather creepy. The sexy doc had a reason for storing all of those body parts. He was growing diseases to make vaccines. Of course, the heroine just thought he was psychotic at first, and ran away screaming. I can't blame her though, I would have done the same thing. Anthony (that's the sexy doctor) runs after her, finally catching her on the front lawn of the estate after she manages to sprain her ankle running in those very unstable shoes all Victorian woman wore. He gets really upset with her, shaking her shoulders and demanding to know if she touched anything. Because if she touched anything in his laboratory without knowing what she was doing, chances are she'd die withing a few weeks. He's was cultivating some nasty diseases. No harm done though, she didn't die.

The story got steamier and creepier from there, I enjoyed it immensely. I read another book by her that I think you might actually like. Lots of graphic gore due to some brutal murders and cut up body parts.

Awww... I'm sorry you're still struggling with that.
Oh, why is Owen one of your pics? I just watched the final arc and I still think he's...well, not a nice person. Head in a jar? Very steam-punk. What book is this?

I like the icon because he's holding a syringe. It's creepy and medical at the same time. To be honest, I like, not liking Owen, it's fun. And he does have his heroic moments, even if he is a prick.

As for the book, I can't remember off hand what it's called, but it's by an author who writes gothic romances. I liked her last one better, it was about some Jack-the-Ripper-esque murders. The Doctor in this book, that keeps a head in a jar, studies diseases, such as cholera, smallpox, and anthrax, to try and come up with vaccines. But at first, Emma (that's the heroine) thinks he's some kind of monster who likes to kill people and then play with the dead bodies. He teases her later, and says she needs to stop reading all the macabe books that were so popular during that time period.

I like dark, angsty, heroes. Hence my obsessions with Doctor Who, Vampires, etc.
