28 y/o white male graduate student. I enjoy the outdoors, long walks on the beach, and contracting exotic diseases. Seeking S/DF (race and age unimportant) to share in these adventures with me. NS only.

So a specialist in infectious diseases has determined I have something called Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. It is tick-borne and found in AZ, CO, UT, and NM (i.e. where I just vacationed). Having enjoyed the RMSF experience for 5 days, I must regrettably report that I do not recommend it. While it is the most effective diet plan I've ever encountered ("You too can lose 20 pounds – in five days! With no diet or exercise!") it carries with it too much baggage.

I will not go into the gory details of what this tiny bacteria has made my body do lately, but let's just say that my doctor was really excited when my fever got down to 102 this morning.

I'll get back to the usual entries as soon as possible – hopefully tomorrow.
