Down with the Sickness

So I was, admittedly, still a bit stoned when I wrote that last entry, and although it wasn't intentional, I paid for it afterwards. The pills I took to try and send me to sleep, did everything but make me dozy, and as a consequence, I woke up early after a fitful nights sleep, stoned and hungry, then felt sick for the rest of the day, which really turned an admittedly already poor weekend into a shocking one. However, I woke up today (and that's another story) and I felt fine, and I still do, which is great, so no serious repercussions from my ill-advised drugs experiment.

Today, however, I woke up at 3:00PM, like I have every day for the last week or two, and seriously, besides all of the 'creature of the night' jokes, it sucks. So I'm going to the doctors, which as anyone that knows me will attest, I hate doing, to see if they can give me some sleeping tablets, or find some way of helping me. No doubt my girlfriend and best friend will both want me to go in for the various other ailments that besiege my broken body, but I think curing the sleep problems I've had since I was 13 is enough to be going on with.

As a parting gift, I present to you SteamPotVille, a book by Steve Ouch. I met Steve on Twitter, and I saw the link to his book. It's aimed at children, and it's amazing, really lovely and all done by Steve himself, which to be honest makes it all even more incredible. As soon as I get some money, it's first on my list of books to buy, and as soon as I do, I'll review it on my ProjectRead 2009 blog. Check Steve's book out here.

Hope you're all well, and not letting the return to college/school/work get you too down.

  1. I notice on the side there it says you are reading Catcher In The Rye? That is one of my favorite books. You should also read Franny and Zooey, which is another excellent book by the same author, JD Salinger.
