:: Points to icon:: This one, since it's got so many awesome characters in it and so many interesting riffs on mythology and legend.

I used to re-read Beatrix Potter's "The Fairy Caravan" in middle school: it's the longest and in some ways the weakest of her books, but it's still a sweet read with a lot of fun little critters.

Does re-reading the Gormenghast trilogy three times count as regularly re-reading???

I have not been as sick, in a long time, as I have been the past few days. At first I thought I was coming down with a cold on Sunday, and I started treating it as such by blasting it with Airborne. But to little effect: Monday, I was feverish, ending in a mild delirium with a bit of a religious experience: I had been praying, putting my pain into God's hands and I swear I could *see* the pain rising out of my body, coalescing into a ball of violet energy about three feet above my body and then a pair of hands taking it and cupping it, gathering the pain and drawing it away, but without withdrawing...at least until I fell asleep.

Tuesday, I felt more like myself, sort of. I was (and still am) dealing with chest congestion and a cough, but I felt less feverish. I decided to take a bath so I'd feel less sticky -- and then my stomach randomly decided to go into reverse. At least I managed to dive over the faucet of our old clawfoot bathtub to get to the toilet before I lost it. After that, I avoided solids for most of the day, which wasn't a problem as I didn't feel that hungry anyway.

Today, I'm less feverish, but I called in sick to work anyway. Might take tomorrow off as a precaution (plus I have an appointment with my therapist). All in all, I think it's the flu, and also Someone's way of telling me to get a flu shot regularly, since I work with the public (I wonder if Medicaid covers gamma globulin shots, since that's supposed to cover a host of illnesses).

The upside: I've been getting a lot of extra rest and I've been watching off and on marathons of Stargate SG-1. Haven't had much brain to RP tag or write, but yesterday and today, when I felt up to it, I've been typing the [livejournal.com profile] vampirebigbangfic I've been longhand writing.
