Miserably ill. Will…

Miserably ill. Will talk to y'all soon, I promise.

3:30. Well, so far today I've dosed myself with a good helping of A.A. Milne (thanks, Shmuel -- I'm finally getting around to enjoying that birthday present!), chicken soup, some of my mom's curry that she sent home with me, black tea, peppermint tea with honey, and some bad daytime tv. I feel a little stronger, but still pretty wobbly, and my throat is giving me serious hell. I'm also feeling fretful and distracted; what I really want is a friend to come stroke my forehead and fetch me medicine and read to me, but no luck. Ah well. I'll just have to cope on my own. (Am I feeling a little sorry for myself? Well, yes -- but I'm also happy to be home, so it's not so pitiful as all that).

I need medicine, so this evening I'm going to take a cab out to the store; the video store is right next door, so I'll pick up some videos too. Any suggestions for good sickness watching? Nothing depressing, nothing too serious -- I think I can handle classics, comedies and maybe action flicks (if they aren't *too* stupid -- too stupid gets boring, and then I get distracted and start noticing how much my throat hurts again)...
