This weren't a good idea

It's 5:30 and I'm up. Was feeling OK about 10 minutes ago -- my hearing has come back at least. Thought I'd maybe stay up a bit before going to bed and yes, I guess I *will* go back to bed, because as soon as gravity came into play, the pain begins. Stupid headcold. Ugggggghhhh.

Also, it's WEIRD to look at a computer screen after so long, it's killing me actually.

Back to bed. Thanks to everybody who sent me well wishes.

The Guardian hits bone on Bush administration

While over in England, I came across the following double book review, which basically amounts to a piercing analysis of just why it is that nobody seems to really believe the horrendous bad sh*t the bush administration has pulled.

Although it eventually gets a little dry and economics-related, there is a fundamental statement made here, regarding radical revolution, that made my brain click with a big "OMG, he's right!"

Amusing Myself

Well, I feel a bit better. Diet Coke rulz! LOL. I seem to be gradually catching up on email, including this one from somebody at my work, in reply to my "sick note" email sent to the whole office:

Great to have you back! The office seemed a bit boring and ordinary without you. Hope all went well.

Aw, I was missed! Hurray!

Meantime due to this fever and whatnot, I'm not all there in the mental department, as demo'd by fact that five minutes ago, I stumbled towards my refridgerator to get some nourishment and said (out loud):

"Jeez, I have so many great books to read, I really just wish I could go curl up in my bed and eat them."

Um, OK, interesting image...

Great Novels

So I sort of heard about this from watching BBC, but there's another one of those Top 100 novel lists going around. The Observer has done one that's actually pretty interesting b/c it includes a good range and even some children's books!

Anyway, naturally I had to go through the list and find out which ones I'd read -- turns out 13 of 100, actually what I expected.
