SICKY: Action’s been non-existent around this blog -- and pretty darn sparse over at Twitter, too, for that matter -- coz yours truly has been under the weather. Little over a week ago, I started feeling feverish and exhausted: just as we were expecting two friends to come visit from Ohio. Went into work on Friday, but wound up leaving at lunchtime, going home and sleeping the afternoon away. Slept a good deal of Saturday off, too, though Sunday I felt well enough to go with my wife and friends on a tour of Kartchner Caverns.
Don’t think this is the Big-Name Flu, but it truly wore me out. The fever was gone by Saturday, but the lassitude remained throughout the weekend. The inside of my mouth has felt like a hot slice of pizza’d been pressed against my tongue and my roof -- making it genuinely painful to eat. I’ve been able to go to work and generally make it through mid-afternoon before I start to feel myself flagging. But once I get home, I’ve been good for a little bit of editing work and little more. Been conking out an hour-and-a-half ahead of my usual bedtime, too.
Got a ton of reviews that I want to write: made some headway into a piece on the first Naruto uncut DVD boxed set that I hope to get up this weekend, but there’s a batch of GNs and manga hectoring me to write about ‘em. Each day I’m feeling a skosh more energized, but it’s clear that I’m not gonna be at full capacity (whatever that means) for a while yet. Me, I’m just wanting my mouth to feel less tender, so I can bite into a puffy Cheeto without tearing up.
