For the past six weeks, as I’ve been crazy-busy doing book publicity, I’ve been craving a day on the couch spent doing nothing but watching movies.  Naturally, I put it off and put it off because there were too many e-mails to return and there was too much to do.  But my body couldn’t keep up with my brain, and now I’m totally sick and have to spend an entire day on the couch watching movies (and, admittedly, keeping an eye on my e-mail and blogging a bit).

Like cold sores, lost voices, and zits, illness seems to spring up at all the worst times.  As Liz Lemon would say, ‘Blurgh!" (I’m a huge 30 Rock fan).  Because I’m still a little bit of a Supergirl, I considered working despite being sick… but I don’t think that would help me get better any faster, and I have a full week of travel next week (I’m speaking at Rice University on Tuesday, and I’m teaching at Columbia University’s Columbia Scholastic Press Association Conference on Thursday).

So, I’m off to binge on Seinfeld DVDs and honey-lemon tea, in the hopes of getting better soon and being able to write about something far more substantial for tomorrow.
