I can't sleep.

But then, I could never sleep the night before battle!

Tomorrow I leave the house on my own for the first time since chemotherapy and seek out such weapons as will help me defeat this virus and spy-ware monster!

My normal battle cry ("Please don't hurt me!") won't get it done this time, so for motivation I'm turning to a few quotes from the man himself:

In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield.
-Douglas MacArthur

In war there is no substitute for victory.
-Douglas MacArthur

Just. Bring. It.

I'll take on this virus on MY computer, on the PUBLIC LIBRARY'S computer, in MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, or in the alley out back. This thing won't know what hit it.

Um, I'm scared. Pop me up, Scotty.

Don't ever let it see you sweat! Hit it with your best shot! Luke? I am you father. Surely one of those apply here.

Other battle cries that may apply:

Not in the face! -- Arthur
Spoon! -- The Tick

I forgot all about The Tick!

I have the complete collection in softback graphic novels somewhere. Thanks to you, I have to dig them out now.
