Well, today has pretty much been a giant waste. I have a ton of things I really want to get done, now that I'm back from my brief travels and still have some time off. But, gah... I feel well enough that I want to be up and doing things, but unwell enough that I don't want to get up and do things. A subtle distinction, but a crucial one.

Sigh. Well, at least I'm getting some reading done. That counts as an accomplishment, right? Considering that the To-Read Pile is currently sitting at 430 volumes...


  1. I hope you still have enough time off that you can manage both giving yourself chance to get better, and getting some things done. As for the size of your To-Read Pile, you have no idea how much better that makes me feel. (I think mine is probably about the same.) :-)

  2. Thanks! I still have a few days off, plus I am feeling a bit better today, so I think it'll be OK.

    And I'm glad to make your feel better about your own To-Read Pile. What's really sad in my case is that this is after I instituted strict limitations to by book-buying and the number started going down. It was heading rapidly for 500 before. :)

  3. I'm glad that the size of your pile is heading in the right direction. I'm not sure that mine is. On the other hand, I get a lot of pleasure from dipping into them, even if I don't have time to read them in full right now. That's my story, anyway. :-)

    I'm glad you're feeling better today - I hope the improvement continues.
