Blogging From the Sickbed

No, this is not a dramatic or inspirational story of disease, overcoming disability, or a miracle cure just in the nick of time. But if you're wondering why there hasn't been much blogging lately, I lay the blame at the feet of a mild and annoying cold that's given me a wee fever and generally sapped my get up and go.

I even might've had time to catch up on the blogging, since I stayed home sick yesterday and only worked a 1/2-day from home today. Alas, proper blogging with genuine thought was well outside my capabilities. Mostly I've just laid on the couch and watched some old sitcoms, a few old game shows, and a Spring Training baseball game. Much of the watching was dedicated to M*A*S*H reruns off the DVR, probably in fevered hopes that a medical show might push me to health.

In any event, look for more coherent blogging soon. I have a couple of recently finished books that need to be reviewed, and I may even have a wee postmortem on the health care bill if it manages to stumble its way through Congress, as now seems vaguely possible.

BTW, for those who have been waiting with bated breath, the final tally for the last batch of comics for the "Date Night with Monique" fund was 11 lots for a whopping $30.20. We've paid off the date-night deficit of $0.77 on the fish and chips, the $19 for last weekend's movie tickets, and have now saved up a cool $10.43 for the next big date. I shall try not to spend it all in one place!


  1. What's missing here, John, is an estimate of what these comic books *cost* you originally? Did you make a profit? Or was this a, ahem, socialist transaction?

  2. The entire Gettysburg Family has been fighting a stupid cold for two weeks. Feel better soon!

    Perhaps Rich should sell tools he doesn't want any longer on Craig's List to fund date night here.
