Last night, while I was helplessly asleep, my sinuses and throat and the extremely dry air all conspired to do …. something really, really gross. Gross enough to wake me at 3:00 a.m., and I was too unnerved to fall back asleep.
So, anyway, I took today off of work. Head colds lead to losing my voice ANYWAY, so I am resting in. However, I feel vaguely guilty — like, am I REALLY sick enough to not be at work? REALLY??????? — so I’ve done two loads of dishes, cleaned the kitchen counters, and taken out the garbage.
When I’m home sick I tend to watch a lot of documentaries. It’s okay if the kids wander in and out, you know? So this morning I watching a National Geographic special on the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, and then I watched Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Prices. I will simply say that I still loathe Wal-Mart, and leave it at that.
I figured out something to do with my Tumblr account, besides follow people and reblog occasional items! I’ll use it to post things I’ve learned about history, that are too long for Twitter and too short for a blog post here. The idea is not mine, I got it from super-librarian Jess Nevins.
