The upside of being sick--when you have paid sick leave and a low-stress job, that is--is that suddenly there is plenty of time to watch hours of Buffy and lie on the couch and drink tea. The downside: being sick, plus getting a backache from lying in a contorted TV-watching position all day. I think I will be more fully operational tomorrow, which is good because we are out of vegetables, and the szechuan vegetables I ordered tonight were full of BEEF so I could not eat them. That was a setback, mood-wise. Also nutrition-wise, maybe? My carboloaded ass is going to sleep for another 10 hours.
