Cough cough cough sniffle

I feel horrid. I don't have anything useful to say. I have no energy to be amusing. I just feel awful and tired and yet can't seem to rest. For the last two nights I have to sleep on the sofa in a semi-upright position. In other words, not much sleep going on.

1. I can't seem to read books anymore. Or rather I read them by starting at the beginning, skipping almost to the end, going back to where I left off near the start and working through a bit more, then skipping to the end. The bulk of the book never actually gets read.

2. I hate laundry. We live in mutual antagonism.

3. I burned myself with the iron in a mad rush to press Dear Husband's shirt one morning. You're welcome, sweetie.

4. DramaQueen is obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, an obsession I'm indulging a bit too eagerly. I tell myself that a kick-ass female protagonist is good for a girl. Also, I'm really tired of Demi Lovato.

5. We're renting out a number of cubicles in our office to a call center. We have been a very quiet office up until now. I've been snuggled in a little cocoon of silence for months now.

6. Dear Husband thought Children of Earth rocked. He's probably the only person I know whose response to the deaths of Owen, Tosh and Ianto was, "Finally!" I think I heard him breathe a sigh of relief when Ianto collapsed. Sometimes he is a Bad Man.

7. Dear Husband is eagerly awaiting Battlestar Gallactica. I thought it was fair play for him to have someone he could oggle for a while, namely:

Thing is, I'm happy to oggle her, too. I think this annoys him. It makes payback more difficult. But it's not my fault I'm so versatile.

8. I'm convinced I will never have another original thought and will never write anything interesting ever again. It's all gone. Kaput. Thpppt. I will have to curl up in the fetal position and bemoan my fate.

Nothing more. I'm going to go rest. Either that or investigate Warehouse 13. Full episodes available online.


  1. Does versatile = heteroflexible?? If so, I guess I'll climb on the bandwagon, cuz pretty is pretty.

  2. I.hate.colds.

    hope you feel better soon....

  3. Random: I agree. I don't know why I didn't use my new word. Durn.

    Mom and Jan: Thanks for commiserating. Back at work but feeling wonky.

  4. I wanta know how many boxes of tissue you went through watching Torchwood CoE lol.

    Now BSG rocked I've been thinking of re-watching it all on DVD myself from the beginning and if you have Netflix the first Caprica DVD has been out for a bit. There is some Nudity and dark tones though. I wouldn't let my kids watch it (Caprica that is)

    I can't read anymore either but I think it has to do with me being so tired all the time.

    Laundry. Pfft!

    Warehouse 13 rocks but I missed the Joe Flannigan Episode. So I'll probably watch it on Hulu if I ever get a chance.

  5. As for your comment about never an original thought, put it to one side. No one can think anything while full of snot.
    And your phrase " as dull as a nursing home corridor" is prize winning in my book!

  6. Grish: I'm still a little freaked out about COE. It was so unrelentingly dark. I know a lot of fans were up in arms about Davies killing of Ianto. I wish he hadn't but I guess it made sense and paved the way for that last really nasty sacrifice. It was like watching Abraham and Isaac only God doesn't supply a lamb. It all seemed very different from previous Torchwood (except maybe the last one of season 2). I mean, they even brought Rys back to life. But Davies swears Ianto is dead for good. Sigh.

    Zen: Thanks. I really do feel crappy and my thinking is swimmy.

  7. Cool story you got here. It would be great to read a bit more concerning this theme. Thnx for posting this material.
