Insomnia hangover, migraine, AND brain fog. Whee. I’m going to check email and then get off of the computer. 
(No, this is not a new photo. It’s from a few months ago, but it is COMPLETELY APPROPRIATE.)

Grump, grump, grump. I am feeling better, but not 100%. I’m still tired, my back hurts because it spasmed yesterday, and I’m in a bad mood that I realize is completely ridiculous. But I don’t know what I can do to shake it - I feel like I want to lie around and sulk, with bouts of nope, can’t brain, why should I try.
This mood will pass. It always does. But for now, send cheering things?

Soup!

idreamofcorsets reblogged this from gothiccharmschool and added: tell him to put in in the microwave.

Well, first there would needed to have been soup made. I haven’t found a canned chicken soup I like.

ldybayne said: He can’t cook chicken soup?? What is the use of a sla— er mate that can’t cook soup?

Ha! The RealHusband does not cook much, but has many other wonderful qualities. But yeah, if both of us are feeling ill? We rely on frozen food. Sad, but true.

As it was, I managed to remain upright long enough to get the soup going, and he took it from there. Under the Read More, Auntie Jilli’s quick chicken soup for sickly people!

Ugh. Day two of death blarg, day two of probably not moving from the couch much. The RealHusband is feeling better, thank goodness. 

Send tea, soup, and laudanum.

Oh ugh. There go any plans I had for the day, because I’m fighting off the wretched cold that’s been going around. Alas, so is the RealHusband, so we are the House of Plague. I’m going to spend the day in my skeleton pjs, drinking tea and reading silly gothic romances. And sleeping. 

(Why is there no delivery service that will bring me really good chicken soup? Why?)

Still sick: a self-portrait with skeleton pajamas and fuzzy monster. But I did get one of the bits of writing done, so yay?

Send cupcakes.

Onto the exciting day two of blarg. Will I have enough focus/brainpower to write today? I hope so, because I had a drabble idea while I was drifting in my NyQuil haze last night, and I want to see if I can capture it out of my head.

Nope, not enough brain to do any writing. Vampire coloring books, Harry Potter movies, and napping it is.

Today’s big question: will I be able to write while feeling woozy, tired, and coughing? Let’s find out! I have cats and a fuzzy monster for support. And soon there will be coffee. 

No, no, no. I do not have time to be ill. Send tea, cupcakes, and things to boost my immune system.

Yes, actually, I am. Hey, did you know lots of stress can screw up your immune system? I’m going to not be around as I blearily focus on work, and then work from home tomorrow (meeting schedule permitting).

This is the face of someone who felt REALLY unwell, grabbed her work laptop, and is now working from home with her oldest teddy bear to keep her company. Ugh.

Goth at the Office: still feeling kind of blarg-ish, but content development waits for no one. The bare minimum of makeup, a top hat, and iced coffee.
