If you follow me on twitter, you’re probably well aware that I’ve been sick as all get out over the last week or so. The combination of a variation of the flu and a throat infection has knocked me pretty much entirely out of commission. Oh sure, the inability to eat, drink, or speak normally due to the worst sore throat I’ve ever had has been loads of fun and all, but frankly I’m ready to get back to life now. (Ask me about the year and a half I had reoccurring tonsillitis as a kid and I’ll now say “tonsillitis smosillitis. They took those babies out and I was fine. Now that throat infection…”)
Aside from the fact that my work’s been on hiatus until I can actually think straight, I’ve also paused my 365 project. I managed to keep it up the first day or two I was sick, but that was when I was still convinced I was going to be over it in a day or two.
Oh to be young and naive again.
I’ll be picking up that project again as soon as I find my camera. You read that right. I’ve barely left the house for the last week and I somehow lost my camera. In my defense, I had a fever. Until today. I’m feeling a bit better today (hence the brief return to blogging). Aside from the exhaustion (there were a number of naps that went into the writing of this post) my symptoms are all slowly fading. I am really looking forward to returning to a semblance of health so that I can get things back to normal around here.

At least this post made me laugh. Glad the fog is clearing enough for you to write some. I’ve been not nearly as miserable as you but Mr. X and I have been sending solidarity thoughts to our similarly house-bound friends on the other side of the hill.
Many thanks for the solidarity thoughts! I’m finally showing some real improvement so hopefully I’ll return to the land of the living in a couple days.
You’re comment reminded me of a dream I had the other night after looking at your post on Girls Like Giants. I was watching some promo for Julie Taymor’s Spiderman Musical and she was introducing a new villan called “Chain Link.” Chain Link’s superhuman ability was to make chain link fences appear at command so he could battle a guy who climbs like a spider and swings on webs. It was very sad.
In my defense I had a fever.
