I woke up with a sore throat. Not! Fair! I've been taking 9 megavitamins a day for two weeks and all I've gotten out of it, after an initial placebo effect, is continued lethargy and a hit to my immune system. I don't suppose I should give up yet though.

I stayed home and slept until 11:30 and then noticed I had phone message. It was from the mailman. He told me that my mailbox was so full that he'd taken all my mail to the post office, where I could pick it up in 10 days or have it returned to senders. I hadn't checked the box since at least the tenth of the month. There I hand you a key insight into my personality.

So I went to the post office a block from my house and learned that it wasn't the post office for my neighborhood. The actual post office for my neighborhood is a mile away. But that's okay. Going outside led me to the discovery that it's beautiful weather and so I roused myself, shot some hoops at the gym and had lunch, and blah blah blah. I don't feel at all guilty. I feel cruddy, and if I'd just lain around my fusty apartment amidst a litter of tissues, eating peanut butter, I know I'd be feeling even cruddier.

Also, the post office kindly threw all my junk mail away and gave me only my bills. I love that! I'd almost pay them to do that, just weed out all that crap mail before delivering only the critical stuff.

I would love to have little kittens crawling all over me right now. That'd be happy.

What are you guys doing today? I can't promise I'll answer comments, but I will read them sleepily and gratefully.
