Didn’t mean for that last blog post to linger on for so long, thanks to everyone who had nice things to say about the work that Gwenn and I do.  Meant to write that sooner, but last Thursday I woke up with a tickle in my throat, which I knew would turn into a little monster.  Damn thing tricked me into thinking it was leaving on Saturday- I had its bags all packed up only to discover that, instead of leaving my home/body it chose to throw a party.

One that raged on all night Sunday, until I decided to be the party pooper, armed with a little plastic cup of Nyquil and some harsh words.  On Monday I woke up at 4:45 pm, to no electricity.  It was a bit cold in the house, so Gwenn and I sought refuge at the coffee shop, which is open until 9 pm.  We also took the opportunity to charge up all of our little electronic friends, before imposing on a flesh and blood friend for more refuge until our power came back on around 10:30.

I just had to think about whether today was Tuesday or not. It is, in case anyone else is wondering.

I feel better today, but still got a few more days to go.  Last time I had one of these deals, it lasted two weeks.  Seems like everyone in town has gotten it, so I will serve my term with dignity.  My goal is to be well enough to go see The Thing prequel this weekend.  John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982) is one of my favorite monster movies, so I’m really hoping my own little monster has exited my system by Friday.

Positively Yours,
