I feel like shit. I left work early yesterday and called off for today. I never get sick but when I do I turn into the biggest baby on the planet. I get super bitchy and mostly want to be waited on hand and foot and then left to my own devices. I remember one of those lame family shows that I used to watch as a kid had an episode where they gave a sick child a bell to ring when she needed something. I think it was full house. I want a bell. I want to ring it and have someone come running, give me what I need, and then they must go away.
So today is reading day. I'm gonna drink earl grey tea and oj and read the 6 books and 1 magazine on my nightstand.
Bitch Magazine: The Noir Issue
Aloud: Voices from the Nuyorican Poets Cafe - Ed by Bob Holman and Miguel Algarian
Crafting the Body Divine - Yasmine Galenorn
Witches & Warlocks - Ed by Marvin Kaye
Son of a Witch - Gregory Maguire
We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson
The Guide to Getting It On (6th Edition) - Paul Joannides, Psy.D.
I probably won't finish any of these but I should make some significant progress. Then I won't feel guilty about checking some new books out from the library. Although, I will probably get some for Christmas.
