Bendis' first big signing in NYC was the same night as Neil Gaiman's Last Angel Tour.
I chose Neil...and the next week, a mutual friend had Oeming send me a signed copy of Powers #1
in an attempt to guilt me.
I miss The Golden Age of Guthrie.
Dinner tonight? A vendor bag of dry roasted peanuts, a handful of dried pineapple, and a pickle.
Protein, carbs, fiber--sounds like a balanced meal to ME! Seriously,
Instead of always staying up too late when Ferrett is gone and never getting enough sleep, I'm going to bed really early.
Oh, good for you! I do exactly the same thing when Cat Whisperer is away and then feel shitty because of not getting enough sleep.
Not to state the obvious, but if you were taking care of yourself and eating healthy, you might not feel shitty. Just a thought. Have fun. You only live once.

Chickens and eggs. I had been well-fed and well-cared-for through ysterday - he left in the afternoon. I started feeling bad at school.
Still feeling mildly crappy, but slept a lot and am eating a healthy breakfast even as a type. I'm hoping to stave off whatever wants a piece of me.
Thanks. I felt kinda crappy last Friday and thought I was coming down with something, but managed to stave it off. Dunno if it's an opportunistic bug or just weird exhaustion.
peanuts and pineapple are a perfectly fine meal. I do the 'going to bed early' thing when my husband is out of town, too.
I mailed Kite Runner this afternoon, but I sent it slow-boat-to-china so it'll probably be a week before you get it. :)
Thank you! Slow boat is perfectly fine. Much appreciated!
1. Take echinacia (sp?), Vitamin C and any OTC druggie goodies you have around the house.
2. Use your Purell hand sanitizer, especially when using a shared telephone pad and/or computer keyboard.
3. Allow yourself to take at least ONE day off from work and/or school to rest up AND because you freakin' deserve it!
4. Think happy thoughts, like when Ferret will be home...
P.S. Sorry we couldn't come to dim sum. I thought it was for this coming Sunday, not this past one. BUT George and I would very much like to do that again while he still has Sundays free (until the end of this month).

Re: Bombard that bug!
Day off is not possible, alas. Too damned much to do. But I will boost my vitamins.
We didn't make dim sum, either, and Ferrett is out of town every weekend this month but next weekend. Lemme talk to him. February is just crazy....
Just for the record, a psychologist once told me that our psyche doesn't understand negatives (as in 'not', 'never' , 'no' etc) so sayiing "I don't have time to be sick" is telling yourself you do! I've discovered that it's not always easy to find a sentence without a negative in it, but with practise it does come. Better to say "I am healthy" repeatedly, then there's no controversy! :)
Interesting thought. I will take it under advisement!
And, hope you feel much better soon!
Fluids, lots of. LOTS OF. Green tea. Water. Water. MORE WATER. :)
Tea feels nicer, though. :)
Cold-Eeze is some fabulous stuff, too.
*HUG* Take care of you. This is me, being a Mother *tm* ;)
Now, where is Ferrett?? We can meet him for dinner down here!! (Um, hi, I live in VA??) Tell him to call my cell? (Gmail me?)
He's being slave labor at Star City Games, and then off to a Magic tourney. I don't know if he'll have time, but you should call him. You can try giving him a call - you have his cell, right? (Actually, I'll send it in another comment and then delete that comment so I know you have it.)
I meant to point out the Free Times article to you last week. Oops!
Amusingly, one of my (3) coworkers in my department is BMB's brother (I think I mentioned this to Ferrett sometime around the proposal for 'Talk like BMB day'.) There's not quite as much fraternal love as there could be, but we do hear the occasional good story. :-)
Otherwise, stay healthy! And if you're looking for something to do as a homework break... we've got that party on Sunday, and I suspect that a significant proportion of the guests don't give a flip about the football. There will be craft projects aplenty. :-)
I missed the BMB fraternal connection - woohoo; it's like Kevin Bacon!
I'm hoping to make the party. Just gotta see how the weekend goes.
Bleh! Teh sickness seems to be going around, and I'm sorry to hear it's looking your way. I hope it decides to pass by without stopping for a lengtny visit.
Just curious - what part of the Commonwealth?
Wherever Star City is. I can't remember.
I hope the early sleep did the trick, and you're not actually sick now. [crosses fingers]
I feel like I'm fighting something off, but at least I feel like I'm fighting it off.
