Well, I had no problems with the Race for the Cure at all. In fact, I completed it somewhere in the middle of the pack of 13,000 people. It was a lot of fun, walking down the Alaskan Way Viaduct and back. There was a bit of confusion at the beginning of the walk in finding my t-shirt and race bib, but once that was sorted out we didn't have any more problems... well... except part of my team didn't realize the race started at 9 and were up in the stands at the stadium when the race started. Ooops. Impressively, they managed to catch up to us with a half mile to go.
Today is the birthday of my mother, Nancy. Best wishes to her today! (Looking at her, you'd never believe that she's only thirty-nine!)
After the last few weeks of constantly resetting the router, hubby-Eric finally got fed up and bought a new Apple AirPort. We attempted to install it yesterday and had absolutely no luck. The thing appeared to be set up correctly, but we just couldn't connect to the internet through it. I decided to sleep on it, and had a brilliant thought this morning.
I only need $417 more (counting some mailed donations I know about) to do The Walk. And wish me luck in Race For The Cure... I'm doing that this Saturday.
JLA #114: "Enemies and Enemies and Enemies": Ooh, we get to see the Crime Syndicate Universe's version of Aquaman... Barracuda on the attack! Wahoo. My desires for that universe are now fulfilled. The rest of the story? Eh, fun. Not bad. I liked it. But hey, Barracuda, yeah!
DC Special: The Return of Donna Troy #1: "A Golden Age To Conquer": Was anyone else besides me mildly disturbed to see "Collector's Item" proudly proclaimed on the cover of this issue? Any time I see those words, I just assume the book is going to eventually be worthless. Admittedly, this issue has the first appearance of the new DC logo, nifty Phil Jimenez cover, and Garcia-Lopez being inked by George Perez interiors... but I still got a sinking feeling in my stomach when I was informed by the cover that this is a "Collector's Item". The story itself? I'm not overly impressed. More cosmic DC stuff. It's ok. Confusing. But ok. Maybe the next issue will make more sense.
No new comics today... maybe I can start to catch up on some of the last couple of weeks' worth of reviews...
I think I'm almost well again. It's actually impressive how fast this illness came and went. Usually I spend a couple of days in each phase... a couple of days with a sore throat, a couple of days with no voice, a week or so with the sneezing and congestion, a day of fever, then the slow climb to normal health. I think I had maybe two hours of fever... it's like the thing was on fast-forward.
Greetings on Memorial Day.
Started with a very minor sore throat on Thursday night, enough that I noted it but didn't think about it. Friday morning I started to lose my voice, and when I got home I took a little nap. I felt miserable all night long, but woke up re-engergized on Saturday... which turned out to be an illusion possibly created by my good attitude. By noon I was miserable again, and as the day progressed I felt worse and worse. I got through a whole box of tissues and was sneezing quite a bit as well. This morning I woke up absolutely ill and decided to stay in bed. To heck with any plans we'd made. I've been mostly asleep since. And miserable. And now I'm starting to cough. Yuck. This is a nasty yucky cold.
