I'm a slacker

Ughh, I feel like such a slug. I watched three movies today! My sore throat from yesterday has morphed into a sore throat + sinus pressure + weirdness in ears because of sinus pressure + headache + stiff neck + minor fever. Boo. I called in sick to work and did a lot of nothing.

The first movie was The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, yay! I heart Narnia. I reread all the books pretty much once a year, and while a couple of things from the movies bother me, I think they did a really good job with the two that are out so far, and I can't wait for the next one! And reading those books, seeing those characters... it's like coming home, somehow, if that makes any kind of sense. Love them.

Second was Becoming Jane, which I Netflix'd. I think I've read Pride and Prejudice four times now, though I just haven't made it through any other Austen novels so far. I have, however, seen most of the movies and love them, so this quasi-biography was great fun. I don't know exactly how accurate it all was, but as a movie for its own sake, it was certainly enjoyable. And as you know, I'm always willing to look at James McAvoy. Period costume is just extra fun.

Third was Monsters Inc., a classic. Very cute, and very much not requiring brain power whatsoever, which at that point was a good thing. I tried to take a nap this evening but just couldn't get to sleep, though I was and am tired. *Sigh* Matt even came in this afternoon and said, "Aww, you look tired, Babe." Thanks, Dear.

Adding to the tired-ness is the fact that I've barely eaten today. I had a cup of coffee this morning when I got up (at 10:30, making for a good 12 hours of sleep--yet I still feel like crud, so I guess that wasn't enough) and still thought I might make it to work. Then a bit of leftover mac 'n' cheese and a boiled egg for lunch, a glass of orange juice, and about ten or fifteen saltine crackers and some toast for supper. Between all that, though, I've felt that icky feeling in the back of my throat like I might throw up, so I've been wary of eating much.

Hopefully I can sleep way in tomorrow and recover some more; thank goodness I don't work. Ugh, goodnight, all.

I have to agree about James MacAvoy...he is quite easy on the eyes...

Sounds like you had the same crud we had-I would have described it the same way. It's taking it's time on it's way out too...ugh!
