Yesterday I did stuff like a normal person. [info]mlerules took me out to have lunch with [info]kenscholes at the Hotcake House. Then we ran errands. Then we came back to the house and collected [info]the_child and ran more errands, including buying her basketball shoes for her new season and scoring a long-desired copy of the region 1 DVD of Going Postalimdb ] for me. Then we had a nice dinner at Apizza Scholls, wherein I ate more or less like a grown-up, then we went and toured the Christmas lights at Peacock Lane, then we came back to Nuevo Rancho Lake and watched the first half of Going Postal, whereupon I fell asleep as late as I've gone to bed in months. (Which is to say, about 8:30.)

It was kind of like being a real boy.

Today I recover from yesterday's breakneck excitement, have lunch with a friend, and watch the second half of the movie. Mostly this involves sitting around in the Big Chair, but that's okay. Screw chemo, eh?

It is good to hear that you had a day free of the chains that have lately bound you.
