Sick day

I had a massive allergy attack just before going to bed last night. That, combined with large quantities of antihistamines made me feel miserable when my alarm went off at 5:30 this morning. I decided then and there to take a sick day today. I’d feel more guilty about it, were it not for the fact that I was in the office working yesterday for about five hours.

I’m just now getting out of bed (yes, at 11 AM!) and I plan on taking it easy today, perhaps finishing up Spook Country and starting in on Joe Haldeman’s The Accidental Time Machine.

But first thing’s first: breakfast. I’m starving!
