My Grandmother has been sick for 4 days, and just today told us that she didn't have a thermometer the whole time. My Dad has been running a fever that has been spiking over 102 deg. F this weekend, and my Grandmother doesn't even know what her's is.

So, I ran out to the drug store (the drugstore department in K-mart actually) to get her a thermometer. While I was choosing a good one for her, I realized that I don't have one either. So I got one for myself too. A nice digital one that beeps when it's done. (I gave the same kind to my grandmother too.)

Which leads us to the live-blogging. In the interest of ...well, no one really, I will be live-blogging taking my temperature. This should take about 60 seconds.

OK. Here goes. I'm turning on the thermometer.

It's resetting.

I've got it in my mouth.




It's beeping!!!!

98.5 deg F

I'm healthy! (Well, physically anyways...)

My wife bought the coolest thermometer when she was pregnant with Clone. It's one of those ear thermometers. It takes 2 seconds to use and it's accurate. I tested it against a couple of older digital thermometers I had.
