Sick and Whiny, but the Aeneid was good...
I am sick.
We’ve had something here for a week. Everyone ELSE had it for exactly 2 days.
Fever, runny nose, a little cough, some general bleh. 2 days, and gone.
Of course I got it on Thursday, and it kinda simmered on Friday, and hit me like a truck yesterday, and today I’m generally feeling like I’ve been run over. Ugh.
And of course we’re talking about MY lovely immune system so this is day THREE and it doesn’t appear to be going ANYWHERE, I hope I’m not going to show up at CKU like this. (YAY! CKU is Wednesday! :D)
And of course now would be the time when I find out that Airborne is really just a hyped-up vitamin pill and not the miracle cold cure. :P Back to my old standby of sudafed, ibuprofen, water, and energy drinks. Hehe.
So I am going to bed and it’s only 8:30. New time. Don’t even get me STARTED on Daylight Savings Time today.
But just so this post isn’t a complete downer (to make you sorry you even showed up here…)
BUT in better news, I finished the Aeneid. It was awesome. And Alice in Wonderland was a quick read. Was it just me, or was that book tainted forever by the Disney cartoon? I had the purple-and-pink Cheshire cat with that one guy’s voice that appeared in about 6 Disney movies (including Kaa from the Jungle Book) running through my head every time he spoke.
It made me want to go back and read the Iliad and the Odyssey again. Which I think I’ll do. And maybe eat some popcorn and some Jelly Bellys (Bless you, Target, for your 40 flavors in bulk bins!) and drink more Crystal Light lemonade. What’s your comfort thing when you’re sick?
Thank you for your book suggestions! You’re awesome! I’m always looking for more books to add to the list!
Jared and I read together every night before bed. We normally keep it light - We’ve recently finished Thud, Leave it to Psmith, and now we’re on to the Hobbit. After 8 years, we’ve been able to read dozens of books together, and it’s been awesome. :)
Happy daylight savings grogginess to all, and to all a good night! :P
