Still Home Sick

Ack. Too many cookies. The cold is in retreat, now if I can just get my body back on normal food (as opposed to massive amounts of sugar, chocolate, and caffeine) I’ll be all set.Finished the first volume of Promethea yesterday (very very cool) but feel too icky to read today.

Well I pushed myself pretty damn hard this holiday season. Downside: I came down with a miserable cold December 26th. Upside: I’m actually taking some sick time to recover, so I have the next few days off. Extra Upside: when I’m not sleeping, I can occupy myself with new comic books and leftover baked goods. Yesterday I worked a half-day. Read Transmetropolitan: Lust for Life (awesome) and Y: the Last Man Girl on Girl. (eh… seemed a little flat) Ate lots of cookies. Slept 10 hours.

Christmas

Happy Holidays to everyone! Probably won’t be making any posts until the first of the year… busy busy. In some of my free moments I’m reading Bleak House and enjoying it very very much.
