Dept. of Long Time, No Post

I Aten't Dead, Mostly

I was supposed to be at a new board meeting tonight, but I'm feeling like crap, and realized it was a migraine (and possibly a cold that started creeping up on me at a meeting I covered last night. So I'm more or less on the couch, feeling miserable, after eating supper, and I realized it's been almost two weeks since I actually posted anything here. So ... well ....

... I'm here.

I have a fic to post, which might go up tonight. Maybe. If I feel like it. Augh. I still have two more fandom_stocking IOUs to complete, but this isn't one of them.

I wanted to re-read a particularly powerful and well-written piece of fiction by
[personal profile] ljgeoff (hi, my dear!), but my eyes and brain aren't allowing me to do that with the care I want to lavish on it. Instead, I'll send wishes for quick healing.

I wanted to tell the story of how the remarkable
[personal profile] gerisullivan helped pass along a tradition of earrings to me, after hearing about the loss of my favorite earrings in Cleveland. Really recount the event the delight and joy it deserves, I mean, because she is such a marvelously creative and overall remarkable human being. But I don't have the spoon, except to say, Geri, you rock, and I'm still enthusing about your gift to me, all these days later.

I have emails to send out to our unit owners and renters about a water problem that needs to be fixed on Friday. I have to chase after one of the people I represented two weeks ago in a discipline hearing, to see if he can make it to his first stage grievance hearing next week. But right now, I still hurt too bad to do anything more than post here.

I want to continue reading Paul Cornell's latest dark fantasy police procedural, "Who Killed Sherlock Holmes," which is on its way to being just as good, and scary, as the two previous books. But I can't read much.

I thought I might comment on the Dems and GOPs as they flounder and founder prior to their national conventions. But I have not the heart to do so.

I may go and lie down in the dark. Or I may lie here in the living room and chat, slowly, with BB. Not sure which.

So how are all of you?

Still not dead yet, but still not better, sadly. Had to take all but a couple of hours as sick time. And of course today was a day when there was a school lock down in one of my communities. Gah. (No problems, prank call, but still had to make phone calls etc.)

How am I? I am old, fat, bald and boring.

I hope you aren't coming down with the bug that swept through here recently. 3 out of 4 of us went down with it (basically a very nasty cold with extra phlegm). Get well and best wishes.

Everything you said about Geri is true. I tend to also think of her as a force of nature: magnificent, awe inspiring in her relentless drive and glorious to behold.

There. Fixed that for you.

I appear to be dealing with a migraine and its assorted side-effects. As in, I can only stay at the computer a little while at a time before I start seeing double, and that sucks. I hope you and your entire family is feeling better now.

Force of nature? That is most definitely Geri!

I'm just getting over the mother of all sinus infections, so I feel your pain. I hope you get well soon. Not being able to read just plain stinks.

Augh, sinus infections are the worst! I'm glad you're getting over it. My migraine is still making being at the computer and reading a short term thing.

In a similar state of physical-and-mental ".....yeeeaaaaaahNO" lately, yes. We do have to figure out how to get together some time when we're both not laid low by various conditions of AAAARGH, I think...

Oh, we should definitely get together, even if it's just you coming on over and me calling out for pizza. And you'd get to meet BB!
