midafternoon blather  
I stayed home again today. Feeling better than yesterday though.

From my friends-of list, 2am_optimism is very cogent--and could easily be speaking for me--when she says:
It's a sad fact that I've become a little more distanced from that complete ability to immerse yourself in a fictional universe as I've got older. On the other hand, as I've got more discerning about the quality of my reading, whole new worlds have been opening up to me in terms of appreciation of the craft of writing.
She also performs Myers-Briggs analysis on Buffy characters ("Can you psychoanalyze a vampire?"), which I point out for the sake of knowledgeable sorts like katallison and anyone else interested in fun stuff like that.

[Edited to remove my lack of fun on other subjects.]

Poor baby. Are you a reader of HP fic? If you are and have not already read it "Lust over Pendle" by A J Hall is really funny, great comfort fic and I think the writing is better than JKR's.

If you've read it, perhaps you haven't yet read the sequel "Dissipation and Despair" which is also very funny but not I think as good as the first one - the plot gets a little convoluted, a little bit Agatha Christie, but still excellent for reading propped up in bed, sipping ginger tea and clutching a hot water bottle.

Can't think of anything else to recommend that you won't already have read or written yourself.

Feel better soon.

You can psychoanalyze a vampire. Suzy McKee Charnas did it in The Vampire Tapestry.
