Slow Recovery

An odd hour, resulting from odd hours. Bright sunshine made it impossible for me to get back to sleep when I woke up too early Friday morning, so I went about the business of the day, which didn't amount to much. By afternoon I felt too tired to take the bus anywhere so I just went to Trader Joe's for a few things. I now have milk and fresh tortillas (Trader Joe's has very good tortillas at a reasonable price, but you have to eat them fast. They have no preservatives and go moldy quite soon. The commercial brands can harden into flour Frisbies and not get moldy.) Also got some mushrooms and a package of their apple cider donuts. The donuts are not bad, but again I'm expecting I'll have to wolf them down as they probably don't have any preservatives either.

Naturally I stopped at the Goodwill store to see if any new books had been put on the shelves since yesterday, and indeed there was one. It is called Brick Shakespeare, and it has comic-book style illustrations of four Shakespeare comedies, but the panels are photos of the characters made with Lego blocks. It's just so incredibly dumb and cute that I couldn't resist buying it. Look, they have it at Amazon. Internet tells me there is also a double volume with both the comedies and four tragedies in it. That has to be heavy, since the comedy volume alone weighs several pounds. It's probably just as well the Goodwill store only had the single volume.

Since I was at the Plaza I decided to pick up a burrito from Taco Bell and not have to cook dinner. Then after I ate my lack of sleep caught up with me so I had to nap, and the nap ended up lasting past midnight. Now I'm hungry again. I guess I'll make ramen. I'm still stuffy and coughing from the virus, and it's very cold again tonight, so I'll be back under the covers soon, and read for a while. Tomorrow's weather is supposed to be much like today's was, so I'll have another chance to take the bus to the bus-accessible stores, but I suspect I still won't feel like it. It takes me a long time to get over colds. And then Sunday is supposed to be rainy again.

But I'd say the odds of my dying from coughing up a lung tonight are now down to about 20%. That's not much higher than my odds of dying from boredom on any given night in Chico. Things are looking up, I suppose. Plus donuts for breakfast!
