Quick post to say that I’ve been hit with the first nasty bug of the season and it SUCKS. Duck, cover and hold, bring on the Kleenex and cough drops. It’s truly nasty — fever and chills, congestion and sore throat, coughing has just begun…poor me. (cue violins…)
Just wanted to let you know why I’m not doing much of anything today. However, I did watch Lost in Translation and March of the Penguins last night. LIT = 9; MOP = 2. I have a pile o’ movies to watch. We’ll see how it goes. I also just finished Arundati Roy’s The God of Small Things and that was a 10. Awesome. I immediately started reading it again.
OK, that’s all I’ve got in me — I have a fat story to write that was due yesterday but I’m reprieved till Monday. Not sure what I’ll get done. Ack. Back to bed…
