Blogging Later Today--Maybe
From Tuesday night until this morning, I was in pretty bad shape (don't worry about me because a lot of people have things a lot worse than me right now). I had a fever, body aches, and bronchitis. Yesterday, the only thing I ate was an apple (and I had to force that). I was on my back almost the entire time and got up briefly to do things like answer my email (which included a request from American Politics Journal to publish my funny post on Tammy Bruce). I had gotten some DVDs from Netflix; for the occasion, I needed something uplifting. One of the films I had gotten from Netflix was a Todd Solondz's film Happiness (I really liked his previous effort Welcome to the Dollhouse). I didn't know much about it; after viewing about 40 minutes of it, I knew it was not the film I needed to see at that time--maybe sometime else. It was very disturbing. Yesterday, I was too incapacitated to make an online prediction for the Alamo Bowl: My prediction was Ohio State 28, Oklahoma State 22. The actual score was Ohio State 33, Oklahoma State 7.
5:50 PM UPDATE: I feel better but not well enough to finish the post I had been working on.
