Still dead, only slightly less so.

Had yesterday what would have been a lovely, long, relaxing day, except that I felt progressively crappier as the day wore on. By the evening, we were playing Badminton and I was approaching the state of dead. Or at least wishing I was. Ugh. Couldn't take a decongestant because I'd taken an antihistamine in the morning as I usually do. After they left it took me five hours to get to sleep from the combination of sore throat, headache, stuffiness, and of course itchy eyes and general itchiness from the plain old allergies. Was awake enough to catch The Sword and the Rose and to discover that Family plays old movies at night they won't play during the day for obvious reasons. Zippers. Zippers! Why do I always get sick when I'm on holiday?

Wasn't so bad today. Could breathe, anyway - but woke to the wonderful surprise of nasty achey pain in left leg. Think I must have pulled something, but don't remember doing so. Am pissed off about it, really. Did nothing all day - watched TV in jammies all day with sickly (for real this time, at least) sister. Good, except that sister would not let me watch DS9. As evening approached achey progressed to throbbing. Whee.

Two Trek-geek related items today, however. One: MY VIC FONTAINE CD FINALLY CAME! My sister and I listened to it straight through, then I played it straight through for Mum, who listened to it again straight through immediately thereafter. Took the two of us a minute to remember which song was Jadzia's favourite (Paper Moon). James Darren has a very soothing voice. Mum got sniffly over I'll Be Seeing You. (Okay, so did I. ;)

Two: I just spotted Creepy Minister Jaro Esa on M*A*S*H. Or whatever his real name is. I have no idea and am too lazy to look it up. And I could be wrong, but I think he's hitting on Hawkeye.

Harry Potter book arrives Saturday. Must hoard cash. mik100 swears she's picking me up at 7:30 in the morning so we can be there when the store opens. Then we will lie in my yard and read. I am disproportionately excited about this. Or perhaps not. ;)

  • Goodbye, 2010; you are dead and gone and I hope it hurt.

    2010 sucked, didn't it? But that's okay! It's dead and we can dance on its grave! This evening was spent in a tea party and watching episodes of…


    Okay. IT'S TIME. Apparently my capacity for boredom - usually staved off for at least three or four days at a time while lying on the couch watching…

  • It's been a while...

    ...but they're still alive! The one on the far right is being a whiny little brat, and I'm not sure why, but for the most part the tomatoes seem…
