Summarizing the holiday - trudge, trudge, trudge,ouch, snore, trudg, honk, ouch, trudge, snore.

The day at work was difficult. Everyone left early save for a few workaholic holdouts, some carpool prisoners and, of course, me. I spent most of my time documenting what I was doing. Sad that I've had to start a diary of work.
Turkey Day was enjoyable. I spent the preceding evening being raided for pots & pans, spices, whatnot in the name of the turkey. The turkey raiders upstairs are doing Thanksgiving dinner, you see.

I enjoyed the dinner quite a lot, the food was good, the crowd was congenial. I didn't feel well, myself, as I've had a flu-like illness since Monday last, but I managed to be content. The crowd did D&D afterward and invited me to play. I just couldn't. I would have liked to but I was just plain too ill. I retired, stuffed as the turkey had been, early.

Friday was a nothing day. I found myself stymied repeatedly. I wanted to do some laundry but felt woozy on my one trip down the stairs. I was surprised to receive mail. I thought the Post Office would have a four-day weekend if anyone did.

I watched movies most of the day, The Man Who Would Be King, yes — again, Lord of the Rings, yes — again, Highlander, yes — again, Girl, Interrupted, Druids, and Fight Club. I wandered about doing other things while they were running and did not actually spend twelve hours with my ass plastered to a chair …

My laundry plans were thwarted again. When I went below, both washer and dryer were full. *sigh* maybe Sunday. My back bothered me quite a bit so I don't need to be rambling up and down stairs anyway. No movies today. The Simpsons first year episodes arrived by mail. I watched that but did not much enjoy it. I really liked the Simpsons but found that I just wasn't in the mood. I liked the "General Bart" episode best — where Bart organizes the school to tackle Nelson the Bully.
I anticipate little activity today. My back is really bothering me and my flu is in full flower. Just blowing my nose is excrutiatingly painful. Yuck.

    It is my sad duty to report that my Brother Bob passed away from a heart attack on 1/31/13. I know he had many followers on Live Journal. I thought…

  • I spoke to Lutron today

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…

  • Another day another dollar. I need a rate increase.

    I have been cat-waxing all day. I really need to write some more on my NaNoWriMo novel. It is a take off on Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake…
