I seem to have contracted the Norwalk virus or some variation, not a fun way to begin the new year.
I think this is the first time I've had a serious stomach virus since about 1989, so I'd really forgotten the power drain.
Strangely though I can remember starting to emerge from the last one - I'd received a complimentary copy of Mystery Scene magazine, and when I was able I went out and sat in the sun and read an article about the Hardman mystery series.
This time around I've been keeping my sanity with movies. The Sand Pebbles with Steve McQueen's a really good film, I guess a roadshow picture in its day and an Oscar winner. At around three hours long it's perfect for viewing when you can't move much more than your thumb on the remote control.
Also watched Under Siege 2 for the first time although I'd always heard it was good. It is.
I'm not reading right now or writing much because I don't want to inadverdently give myself aversion therapy to my current projects.
Hopefully in another day or so I'll be better.
