Ill, literally

Instead of being just made ill by watching the news, I am actually physically ill. I worked outside yesterday planting grass seed and it pushed me over the cliff from a "kind-of" cold to full blown feeling like crud. Now, I'm all pilled up and ready to fall asleep. I hope I can sleep it off and be as good as new tomorrow. I don't even remember much about today but it was pretty busy, I think.

Other odds and ends:
* I got my Douglas Coupland books from Barnes and today. $29 got me "The Gum Thief", "jPOD", and "Eleanor Rigby"- all in hardcover and shipped to the house. Even with my discount (I happen to work for a book company), I could have never come close to $29.
* Some dude walked out in front of the train that runs from here to Nashville this morning. What a way to go.
* More storms are on the way for tonight and tomorrow. We made it through the last tornado untouched and I do have my weather radio with the world's scariest siren plugged in right by the bed.
* My Contour leaky trunk is back. I had one "dry" week and now the leak is bigger than ever. I applied a ton of glue and putty today but I doubt it had time to dry before the rain hit again. Maybe I'll just give in and buy fish for the spare tire well.

That's it for today. If you want to read a real blog, head over to Randall got a very good piece of news today and we're very happy for him and his family.
