in sickness and in health

My momentum has hiccuped. I think I've been pushing myself a bit too hard; I woke up Tuesday morning with a sore throat and summer cold and have been sleeping and snarfling ever since. Finally today I dragged myself out and bought something called ZipFizz. Or is it PopFizz? Some tube of vitamin-y goodness with the equivalent of a B12 shot and a buttload of vitamin C. Am already feeling a bit perkier, though that may just be an initial placebo pop.

Just now picked up the copy of Poets & Writers I bought a few weeks ago and re-read this funny thing about reader comments that workshop writers, teachers, poets, et al, will probably appreciate, not to mention fan-fiction writers and readers, come to think. There's a fan-fiction version just waiting to be written.

That was my effort at gregariousness for the day. Now I will try to write for a while and later will stand in front of my bathroom mirror frowning and shaking a finger at myself with a reproving reminder to answer LJ comments.
