This cold is still kicking my butt, but today finds me suprisingly not dead, so yay. (I nearly wrote undead, which yesterday almost didn't seem too out of the question.) Here's my shortlist of 5 remedial activities to feel less almost undead:
- Despite waking at 3.30am, getting up and watching an old episode of Parkinson at 4am, then going back to bed and sleeping through until after 8.30. Sleeping In is normally on my list of Things I Would Like To Do, But Sadly Cannot.
- A lunch time stroll into Newtown, and having lunch at the Japanese place Eat Me Sushi. (PS. When you're done, eat me next.) Apparently the new menu is based on too much food for too little money. Miso soup, sashimi, sushi rolls and teriyaki all for $12.50. Ridonkulous.
- Buying a book by David Sedaris. Always a wise move.
- New paints, brushes and palette. Next up, inspiration (hopefully).
- Coming home to find a perfectly timed care package of 2 CDs from a certain sweety pie. Just perfect. Ladies and ladies I give you 80s Swedish model/spy/new modern song stylist Miss Virna Lindt! (Think 80s pop synth, with brass and strings, filtered through 60s/70s cold war spy storylines, in English and Swedish, and you're on your way to understanding the magic.)
