Sick day

Ugh, either my allergies finally succumbed to the dozen or so teeny-to-middling snow showers we've had this year (way more than I've ever experienced before) or I managed to catch the cold bug that's been floating around everywhere. Regardless, I felt like crap yesterday and figured I'd likely stay home today, and managed to sleep 10 hours which is maybe 2-3 times a year for me?

Finished up Middlemarch a couple nights ago. It was quite faithful to the novel, I was impressed. It reminded me a lot of older US westerns where the violins just kick up something serious, and of course one wonders why all these Victorian people feel so strongly about stuff when they barely even see each other or communicate when in the same room. The period dress was gorgeous though, and I'd love to get me a suit and tophat and try to manage it at work someday. It's also had the good effect of keeping me off the asshole sides of the Internet. I was very proud a few days ago that I did absolutely zero extra computer time at home: breakfast, to work, then to home, and finally Netflix and reading.

I also wrapped up Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Of the Narnia books I've read so far (all but The Silver Chair and The Last Battle), this one is actually my favorite of the bunch, and sets Narnia apart as very different kind of world (hint: it's not round). It also features very little of Aslan coming in to save the day: a little here and there but most of the action is in the children, which IMHO is much better than some of the other stories which are basically "I saw Aslan and he said X and you don't believe me and now we're screwed unless Aslan shows back up with a magical huge army to save our butts."

I think the rest of today will be a hot soup lunch, more reading, maybe another nap, some Team Fortress 2, but also a completely unrelated doctor's appointment around 4.
