Self is sick. Again. Weather report says a storm is coming: it’s going to be raining every day through Saturday. Bleeaah!!
Anyhoo, in last-ditch attempt to ward off future sniffles, self:
- Started a fire.
- Downed two Alka-Seltzer cold tablets.
- Put on woolly socks.
- Watched TMZ. (Oooh, Nicollette Sheridan gets homeless woman to run interference between her and pesky TMZ paparazzi ! Quick thinking, Nicollette!)
And, since self is not expecting hubby until 8 or thereabouts, she can blog about NYTBR of 10 February 08, the “Politics” issue. Without further ado, list of books self is interested in reading after perusing said issue:
