“'Tis healthy to be sick sometimes.”

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sick! It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it never seems to go away.

This latest bout started around New Years’ and has stuck with me for the last few days. At first I felt bad all over, but now, I mostly sound like shit, which doesn’t bode well for either job, where all it seems like I do is talk.

So here I am at home in my PJs on an involuntary vacation. I think, in some perverse way, God is giving me what I need: a reason to go sit down and not worry about everything and everyone.

As a rule, I don’t take vacations. Those long periods of unemployment I’ve had, I feel, have been vacation enough. But the body has to rest. It craves it. I try to avoid nature because my head is telling me that I need to do more stuff, but nature has a way of getting its own way, I guess.

So what am I doing other that hacking up stuff at regular intervals? Mostly sleeping and looking around on the internet. If you’re a regular reader of this blog and you have a website, I’ve probably been on it at some point in the last three days. My brain is scrambled form the medication, so my already semi-incoherent comments would come out worse, so I haven’t left messages.

But anyway, sorry that I’m partially out of commission. This stuff is breaking up finally, and things should be better soon.


  1. I know what you mean. A lot of times, I enjoy being sick belive it or not. It gives you some time to not worry about all of the problems. About 2 years ago, I had a bad cold and I was up one night because of it. Never fell asleep until 6:30 AM. Even though I went through heck trying to fall asleep, I was able to catch up on some stuff I had on my laptop around 4:00 AM.

  2. We're probably the only two people who could get more productivity out of being sick :-)

  3. We battled the flu (yes all of us here in our house) over Christmas(read that to say-we came down with it ON Christmas Day). We still are not totally right. Hope you feel have my sympathies

  4. If it makes you feel any better, I have a stomach virus right now. :)

  5. Muddy: Everybody had the flu? Oh man, that's gotta be rough. Glad you guys made it through.

    Cantnot: I doersn't make me feel any better, but I do hope you feel better soon.
