Um... Not really sure what to say, buuuuut, I got a call from my...uh... half brother? Step brother? I dunno, we have different mothers, BUT, he called me yesterday after I got home from work, and called my mother while I was at work, to let us know that apparently our father died on the 20th this month.
It was pretty surprising to hear, but... I dunno. Its not grandpa's death level of bad or anything like that. Actually, there is no emotions for this on my end, due to my lack of interactions with the guy, and the few that I do remember were either okay or pure hatred towards him. Not to say I was one of those kids who constantly thought about their runaway parent and any mention of them made me want to murder puppies or what have you. Honestly, I've been mostly indifferent towards the whole issue. My only response to him getting back in touch with my mum was to refuse to talk to him, because by that time I was already 24 years of age and hadn't had contact with him since I was... what? 7? 5? Who knows. *shrugs*
Point is, I did have a lovely conversation with my brother, and learned that he now has a son of his own--already knew that he had married. He's a couple years younger then me, but he's still just as much of a nerd as I'll ever be, from our conversation about games and TV cartoon shows. XD Its a shame we live so far apart; he'd be fun to hang out with more.
Other then that, I had to call in sick today due to waking up with chills, a headache, and growing nausea... That sucked. But, with the help of my mother's medicine, and ginger tea she made, plus lots of rest, most of the symptoms have gone away. The headache is still faintly there, though, and the nausea likes to pop up randomly, but luckily only shortly... Still... But what can ya do?
Anyhoo.... I need to respond to an email from my brother to see if he's got Skype. XD We gotta converse more, damnit~!
