I’m sick. What a relief.  

It appears yesterday’s utter exhaustion and inability to think stemmed from the onset of a head cold, rather than me having drained my brain so utterly as to be unable to function. That’s actually a relief: it usually takes me more than 2 intense writing days to wipe myself out, and I was seriously worried about that.

On the flip side, though, I’m still utterly wiped out (as it did yesterday, taking a shower exhausted me this morning) and in no condition to get work done today. I’m in the right condition to sleep, or sit somewhere with my jaw hanging slightly open as I stare blankly at nothing, and that’s about it.

So I think that’s basically what I’m going to do. Man, I’ve just got no reserves left. *drags self off*

Oh love! There seem to be all manner of rottennesses being shared around among Cork people at the moment. Sleep it off. Lots of honey drinks. *puts on protective suit for hugs*

Oh, man, I hope this only lasts that long. You've given me hope. :)

Well was ok on Wednesday (which was good seeing I had a nuclear bone scan), was bad Thursday with fever and headache and cough, still bad Friday morning so I had to cancel a CT scan, and by yesterday afternoon felt better.
Theres a 'surprise' family party for us tonight for our anniversary and we're off to Spain for a week on Tuesday.

Oh btw - you see how many we have for P-Con VI - I think a lot of that is due to the GOH from V

*laugh* Are you sure it's not due to the GoH *for* VI? But thank you. *beams* *hugs* I did see, and was delighted at the numbers! Next year's going to be a great con. :)

But how am I going to open it in such a way that tops the last one? (and am working on that)

yea -- if you start coughing, or feel a ticking in your throat, STAY IN BED, TIS THE DEATH!

(put me down for a full week-plus, and lingered for a month after that. It's horrible)

Hope you get better soon! If it keeps going over the two days get yourself to a doctor. That one can sometimes linger for a while.

Oh dear. Too sick to write. That's the worst.

Hope you feel better soon.
