Two Feet of Topsoil

This weekend:

Delightful booksale. Too tired for words, but still found a few gems, including a few thing that have been on my wish list for a while (which I now need to cull a bit). I was still too blurry to really get as down-and-dirty in the books as I normally get, so I came out with only about $40 worth - sometimes I do myself a LOT more damage than that - but I did find at least one good Indian cookbook, a Thai one, and a Middle Eastern one, as well as getting my liberal on with books from Molly Ivins, Maureen Dowd, Senator Byrd, and of course, America - The Book, by Jon Stewart. No plain reading books (fiction), but that's because I'm still not completely over the cold. We came home and got some sleep afterward, then went out for Ethiopian, which was delicious, and then I slept 12 hours last night.

Right now I'm a little weary; just sort of washed out and weak. We went to CostCo to pick up a few essential (if slightly expensive) items, then back to do a little laundry and peel the coconut we bought last weekend - good coconut. Otherwise, trying not to do too much. I'm poking at a scene I think might should be cut, but I'm not sure. I'm in this "I need a scene from Sean Patrick's POV here," but nothing really happens important, so... blah blah blah. I think I'll plow through and then decide later.

Tired, still a little sick, and defective internally. Serious case of the blahs.

I have no ideas for weekly goals other than making it through, five days without being sick, maybe getting back to the gym (don't want to push it), finishing a review for Friday, and that's about it.

You didn't buy any fiction? Man, you really do feel lousy, don't you?

I know. I think it's the first time. I almost did, a collection of mysteries, but then I thought, "Five books for $7.50 when they're $1 each? That's stupid," and put them back. I plowed over the mysteries/suspense section but didn't actually see anything that grabbed my attention.

Sad. And I never made it to general fiction or classics at all. (It's a BIG book sale!)
