A freakishly warm day. It's already 63˚F out there. Spooky's opening the storm window in my office. At least this room can air out a little. Thank you, El Niño. God, that air smells good. Currently, we are one degree away from the record high for this day, 64˚F in 1989.

I hardly slept last night. For a lot of known reasons. For several. I was up at a quarter to six this morning, working on Sirenia Digest #120, which should go out this evening. I finished the story yesterday. "Build Your Houses With Their Backs to the Sea" unexpectedly became "Notes for an Electronaut's Ovid." I'll use "Build Your Houses With Their Backs to the Sea" for some other story someday. After dinner, I proofread it and made edits. I'm going to try and make it to the John Hay Library this afternoon to do a little proofreading on Mythos Tales.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions, ending this afternoon. Thank you.

Okay, so...I have to do something unpleasant for my health, which currently isn't all that great. My health, I mean. I'm not a kid anymore, and I can't keep treating myself like this. And I'm going to be sick for a week or so. And then I'll be better. I may or may not be scarce here for a little while. I've put this off far too long.

But hey, I have seven seasons of Malcolm in the Middle to see me through it.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

I truly hope that you won't be sick for long. Wishing you the very best from here in Ohio.

You scare me when you sound like Bilbo at his birthday party. I hope everything goes well.

That's a great title.

Being sick,sucks.
Yeah, you have to take care of yourself. Had a cough a few weeks back, went to my M.P., she told me to take an over the counter. A week after that, I started coughing up blood. Didn't tell my significant other, and become worse. Slept on the recliner,coughed up enough blood to ruin my towels. Went to my M.P. on a whim, they freaked. Pneumonia sucks. Get well, take care, live long. I won't say be happy.

Do what you know you need to do to get better. We'll be here when you come back.

I hope the process goes more smoothly than you're anticipating, and you feel better soon. I dropped a package in the mail a little while back - hope you both find it useful when it arrives!

Cold Turkey
Be careful. I'll assume you know what you are doing with your cold turkey from whatever drug it is.
Some drugs have lethal events take place during cold turkey and you are too precious to lose.

I hope the recovery is swift and the illness turns out to be nowhere near as bad as your thought it was going to be.

it disturbs me that the high in Providence is the same as it was at my place in Los Angeles. It's January, so what the fuck climate change?

i'm hopeful that your health gets less bad quickly.
