This didn’t real­ly belong in that last post, espe­cial­ly after I added oth­er stuff. So aren’t you lucky? You get anoth­er one!

A while back, I noticed that an old post in which I had pub­lished my Opin­i­ty ID badge in order to claim this blog had bro­ken links. I checked their site, and found a notice say­ing that they’d be back up in two days.

Well, after sev­er­al months, that notice was still up. Unless they’re talk­ing about some­thing like Plu­ton­ian days,1 I think they’ve missed their target.

Flu. Mono. Whatever.

Whatever it is, it sucks. No matter how long Katie and I sleep, we stay exhausted.

We did watch more Dexter while we were awake. And I studied for my Project Management final. I'm actually using the study guide, like a good girl! Hey, my brain is so stupid right now that I need all the help I can get. Maybe I should have read some of the text, huh?

Oh! I finished Shirley Damsgaard's Ophelia & Abby series. Very good stuff! They're cozy mysteries, but there's also an interesting portrayal of people following a "family tradition" of folk magic.1

On to Stranger in Death!


1 I have to say that the references to "witches" have caused some interesting changes in the ads Google is sticking on this site. Love spells? Please!

Boo Sickness! Recipe, Word Geeking, Reviews

This not-flu or whatever is exceedingly tiresome. I should think it would be enough to live with the day to day stuff, let alone put up with this. Then again, nobody has ever claimed in my hearing that the world is fair.

MélusineI haven't succeeded in holding any thoughts in my head long, so you're in for randomness again this entry.

I have no idea why the main article was linked from ZDNet, but doesn't this cheddar and apple sandwich seem yummy? I wonder how it would be with ham? I used to have a really good recipe for a sausage and apples dish, but I know I haven't cooked it in the last decade. Maybe I could dig it out of my ancient recipe box? There are few ways to go wrong with cooked apples, as far as I can tell.

Adult: FMS from What?

I have a Google Alerts search going for “fibromyal­gia,” because if there’s some­thing out there that will make this crap bet­ter, I want to know it yes­ter­day. The alert brings in all sorts of non­sense from quack reme­dies to naysay­ers, in addi­tion to the actu­al content.

Today’s alert takes the cake, though. Some­body wrote to Dan Savage’s Sav­age Love col­umn ask­ing, “Can I Sue Some­body for Fist­ing-Induced Fibromyal­gia?“1

Savage’s med­ical expert is out of touch regard­ing the lat­est FMS research, but I have to agree with his reply to the letter-writer.

Sam and I tried to game a lit­tle tonight, but he was sleepy and I’m fad­ing, too. I did some writ­ing today, and more web­i­fy­ing, and worked on a cou­ple of school assign­ments. Then I got all-too-obsessed with try­ing to fig­ure out how to make the out­put of a cou­ple of Word­Press plu­g­ins work nice­ly with my template.

I hope y’all had a love­ly weekend!
