Yesterday I worked a more-or-less normal day of Day Jobbery. Then I made an afternoon lunch with [info]scalzi, [info]maryrobinette, [info]maclark2005 and some of the nice folks from Macmillan, Powell's and the local media. That was rather nice, as I got more calories in two hours there than I'd had the previous three days.

After that, I stumbled home and wrapped the galley edits of Endurance, enjoyed a visit from [info]lillypond (a/k/a my sister) and the Niece, who came bearing home electronics. Then I helped [info]the_child with some of her homework.

I will also say that after an eighty-four hour lower GI shutdown, when it restarts, lots of things tend to happen. FOLFIRI is supposed to produce excessive lower GI activity, but as mentioned before, the intersection with Vicodin kind of screwed things up. A better way to put it might be to say that things were saved up for later.

At any rate, I seem to have settled overnight. Hopefully today will be pretty normal.

One damned thing after another, this cancer stuff.

Yay for lunch with friends!

As for the other. We know all too well that working is far better than not--even when working over-enthusiastically.

So, uhm, yay?
