Obama says that we shouldn't 'jump to conclusions' about the motivation of the Ft. Hood killer. Thanks for that tip, Mr. "Acted Stupidly". Oy vey.

woe is me

So, I've spent the last week and a half now in various stages of 'sick'. And I don't mean a cold... a cold I can handle. No, it wasn't swine flu either. It was a sinus infection complete with a 100F+ fever that lasted until I got antibiotics, and has now settled down and maybe a happy home in my lungs. The doc had prescribed me some kick-ass cough syrup along with the antib, but the problem is that it's a little too kick ass. It's got codine, so it makes me loopy - unable to drive to work, or work once I get there - and it also makes me sick to my stomach, so I can only take it after eating a largish meal. So, since taking it the prescribed four times a day isn't a possibility, I went back to the doc this morning and he gave me a albuterol inhaler and a course of Cipro. The albuterol makes me jitty, but I can deal.

The worst thing is that after basically a week of being in a fog, I feel completely behind on everything. Behind like 5.000 on NaNo... I swear, every year I sign up for NaNo I get sick in the first half of the month. It's like a curse. And it's not that I'm incapable of writing whilst hacking up a lung... is that the sickness provides the perfect excuse for putting off the writing. Take right now, for example. It's 11pm and I'm so tired and I'm thinking, 'I need to write a couple hundred words at least'. But then evil Alli says, 'but you're sick, you need your sleep!' And evil Alli does have a point, even if she is evil. Plus I have chores to do this weekend, and report cards to finish before Monday. Blech.

Random shout-out to SGU tonight for the totally gratuitous and nerdy Futurama reference.

Looks like there's a NaNo write-in tomorrow in Concord. Maybe I'll be able to get enough crap done tomorrow that I can go.
