So it’s definitely not SARS. For the past few days I’ve been bedridden with some mysterious virus, perhaps the first EVER summer malady in my life. And of course I did what I always do when I get stuck with a tough cold: consume. In the past three days I’ve gone through two gallons of OJ, four movies, one box of tissue brand tissue, five cups of tea, and two new yorkers, among other things.
It’s all that one can do when the body is debilitated. I feel like most of my life is spent in input/output or even just output mode. Writing email, talking on the phone, cooking dinner, writing code, having meetings.. BLAH! I think getting sick is one of the best things I’ve done in a long time. Input only. Pure, unadulterated, lazier-than-thou input. And I feel great now. Er.. I think I’m still sick. I’ll get back to you on that in the morning.
