this sucks

OK, so I know that compared to disasters in the rest of the world, this is pretty minor. I was just looking forward to having a real vacation, not one spent in bed and dizzy with fever. I know where it came from - one of my classmates who plunked himself down next to me on the second to last day, having just gotten out of his own sickbed. For four hours the poor guy tried to get his final drawing done, all the while complaining about how feverish and dizzy he was. I even loaned him my colored pencils, and never got them back - but at this point I'm willing to let him keep them. I never used them that much anyway. Ah well.
So, flat on my back in bed, I've been plowing through books by Robin Hobb. I've finished the Assassin trilogy and the first of the Liveship books - full credit to litchi for turning me on to her stuff. Little did I know that she was the same person as Megan Lindholm! Whose books, especially Wizard of the Pigeons, I remembered from when I was a teen. Anyway, whatever name she goes by she's a good writer. I know she's written more in the Assassin series too, so there's that to look forward to. If I keep feeling like this I may.
Speaking of this being pretty minor overall, I just switched the TV to CNN and there's a hostage taking - children in the Philippines. How can people use children like that? I don't get it. Children as hostages, children as soldiers, children as suicide bombers in Iraq. I always think of Theoden's words: "How did it come to this?"
Sigh. Well, I'm sure when I feel better, I'll, well, you know, feel better.

Aww...no wonder you've been out of commission. Hope you feel better soon, like right now! ((hugs))

Thanks sweetie! I seem to be feeling a little better today, at least the fever's gone down and I managed to be vertical without feeling dizzy for a few hours this afternoon.
However, now I'm going to lie down. :-/ Good thing I have a week off from school!
