Bad things happen if you leave your holiday decorations up too long...

Arg, I knew it was inevitable. I'm sick. It's just my luck to actually get sick during my vacation. Oh well, I guess it could be worse. It could always be worse.

The up side to having to stay in is that I can catch up on stuff like reading and scripting. The next few pages seem kinda tricky to me. There are a lot of little chunks of information that need to be presented in the right way and in the right order. Maybe it's just me making a bigger deal out of it than it really is, but I'm really nervous about the first part of issue 4. Actually, I'm really nervous about the entire story, but I guess that can't be helped. Oh well. I guess there's not much I can do except just keep scripting and see what people think of the results.

The thing is, Final Fantasy XI has been overwhelmingly tempting lately... which brings me to the title of the post. I never knew that "disposing" of old "holiday decorations" could be so time consuming... and I never knew they could be so hit so hard.


To get the flu shot or not get the flu shot. That was the question I faced earlier this season. I opted not to because when my dad got it last year, he said it made him feel terrible, and when it was made available to me, I had already given blood that day and wasn't really feeling like getting jabbed with another needle. Of course, wouldn't you know, now I have the flu. :( Oh well. I sensed I was due to get sick. Without fail, I tend to fall ill just once a year, usually in the late fall or winter, and almost always near a holiday. The timing really sucks this year, because this really puts me behind on my Christmas shopping, leaving me just about a week and a half to get it done.

Fortunately I seem to be pretty resilient when it comes to the flu. I had it last year for just 24 hours and was good as new the next day. Even with this bout, I've had colds that were worse. Still I'm in bad shape. I'm making all sorts of unappealing coughing sounds and I've been in bed for most of the weekend. I was hoping to stave it off with mental power or possibly the Force, but I don't seem to be having much luck and now I'm at the slighty loopy stage, where if I watch too much TV, it starts to confuse me. I think I'm about to start getting better though. Hopefully I'll be well enough to enjoy my Christmas vacation next week and get in a couple viewings of Return of the King.
