Kiss Me…I’m Sick!

I’ve spent the last few days extremely sick, which has not been fun, although it’s given me time to read Kim Wilkins’ latest book The Autumn Castle from cover to cover. I loves me some Kim Wilkins, and it was nice to be reminded why. I love the way she seamlessly blends high fantasy and horror with contemporary life, and her ability to write some of the most interesting and complex characters I’ve come across.

I find it interesting to note the different ways my body reacts when I get sick. I used to find it fascinating, but that was before I started getting quite sick every few weeks, as I have been for the last few months. What has been irritating this time is that I really haven’t felt hungry or wanted to eat. Of course, when I forced down some tinned peaches today I started to feel better almost immediately. Wish I’d done that a couple of days ago. Stupid body!

I’ve had to miss a couple of days’ work, which I really don’t like doing and which isn’t good for me financially since I’m a casual employee. But by the same token I’ve not really been in a position to be able to work; apart from how I feel physically, the public seem to take offence when people in customer service roles break off from serving them, scream “I HAVE TO GET TO THE BATHROOM!” and proceed to run away, gagging.

I thought I was getting better last night, when I even had the energy to bounce around my room to Mclusky for a while, but alas, it was not to be. I felt even worse this morning. But luckily, it all seems to be getting better, and I can quit writing whiny entries like this one! Hooray!

In other world news…hmm. Nope. I got nothin’. I’d best haul my diseased carcass off to bed, methinks.
