It’s been slow going, but the upper-respiratory bug that assaulted me last week is starting to loosen its chokehold on my windpipe, and I’m finally feeling a bit more like myself (though I don’t yet sound like myself, or anyone else human). I’m sure it helps that I canceled an out-of-town trip, took the whole weekend off, stayed home, didn’t answer the phone, talked as little as possible, and did no work whatsoever. Mostly I just lay on the couch like a threadbare afghan, gulped down hot fluids, and watched TV.
Alas, all of the above means I have to write a piece right this minute for a magazine that goes to press today. (I’m not completely sure I still remember how to write!) The good news is that I should be blogging again tonight. Our Girl advises me that she’s still having web-browsing problems at her end, but she, too, will be back as soon as possible.
Until then, cross over into the right-hand column, where you’ll find a new “Second City” column for your delectation, plus links to lots of other fine blogs that are worth a visit.
Thanks for your patience.
