Why did I ignore the warning signs?

Here I thought it was burnout, fatigue, malaise. That I was depressed, unmotivated, dispirited. That Ann Coulter's recent visit and people's failure to shut up about it were getting me down.

Turns out it's none of these things; I'm just falling sick. I'm at my desk with a space heater blaring away, wearing a scarf and toque, with my eyes burning and my head aching, trying hard to stay awake. It's not very cold here, it's just me.

Malaise or maladie, the result is still that I probably won't get as much done as I wanted to this weekend. Grr.

Well, maybe it will give you time to be productive around the house and go shopping for a good deal on cheese - see here: http://sassy-red-head.livejournal.com/597208.html

Get well soon, my grouchy friend!

Are you at work? Just go to bed and sleep for a good long while. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Woodsy - thanks, I have cheese. But it's hard to be productive when you send me off to read blogs!

Lynn - thanks

XUP - yes, I did. Twelve straight hours.

Don't worry, it's just a small cold that needs a day or two of rest. I get it now and then when I push myself too hard.

I also realized that I'll now be at home to celebrate Earth Hour!
