crickets chirping

Wow, one way to get absolutely no response is to tell people you're sad... In an effort to counteract that (and perhaps appear bipolar), here's the bit o' Harry Potter I laughed out loud at this morning. They were in the middle of their OWLS...

"Well, we were always going to fail that one," said Ron gloomily as they ascended the marble staircase. He had just made Harry feel rather better by telling him how he told the examiner in detail about the ugly man with a wart on his nose in his crystal ball, only to look up and realize he had been describing his examiner's reflection.

"We shouldn't have taken that stupid subject in the first place," said Harry.

"Still, at least we can give it up now."

"Yeah," said Harry. "No more pretending we care what happens when Jupiter and Uranus get too friendly..."

"And from now on, I don't care if my tea leaves spell die, Ron, die--I'm just chucking them in the bin where they belong."

Oh, and I'm not shirking work to read...I'm home sick today. The worst is over but it's just lingering. Going to the doctor tomorrow, Anonymous. That's the soonest they would see me. Just thought I'd end up feeling like crap all week if I flew four days straight with a sinus infection... Now I can at least salvage the last trip of the week.

I remember laughing at that bit, too. I need to start my re-read of #5.

I hope you feel better soon, it sucks being sick, but at least you have entertaining reading to help your day go by faster. With my one and only sinus infection, it was so serious I was out of work for a week and read Angels and Demons in 2 days. I'd wake up, take my drugs, read in bed, fall asleep for a few hours, wake up, take my drugs, read in bed, fall asleep, etc. But I read it so fast I was bored for the rest of the week.

I got the most comments on my blog when i wrote about sex. Sadly, it is the only thing that really motivates anyone.

I hope you are feeling better, too! You gotta get well so we can do lunch again!

Yes, it is interesting to read while drugged/drowsy. It all blends together. Japruf--if only there were something to write in that area... And Bubba's Sis, I was thinking we could try to set a standing monthly date for lunch...like the last Friday or something.

I just finished #5 and would kind of like to immediately start #6...

Excellent plan, cjh! Let's do it!

I'm jealous of Bubba's Sis. I don't even get to have lunch with you that often anymore... :-(
