I'm a Perl coder living in Bethlehem, PA and working Philadelphia. I'm a philosopher and theologan by training, but I was shocked to learn upon my graduation that these skills don't have many associated careers. Now I write code.

sick on vacation

[ #22484 ]

Today is my second day off from work. It's dumb to work between Christmas and New Year's, and my intention is not to do it again.

Unfortunately, I'm sick. I have a head cold, which isn't horribly incapacitating or anything, but it's not pleasant. Breathing is weird, I'm not sleeping very well, and I don't feel like I can concentrate. I've been playing a lot of Mario Golf, which has been fun, but I'd meant to do more reading and get some Halo 2 practice in. Anyway, it's not the worst thing ever, but I'd rather have been sick during a work week.

Gloria and I watched Stagecoach, which was pretty good, considering it was a John Wayne western. We also watched Citizen Kane, which I hadn't seen in at least ten years. It was good, too. I like Orson Welles, and am wondering whether I can train myself to always speak like him.

I've begun reading Less Than Zero, and I'm enjoying it; it reminds me quite a bit of American Psycho, which makes sense, since it's the same author. I also read Invincible (the first trade paperback) and enjoyed it quite a lot. It was too short!

Newly received loot:

* book: Johnny the Homicidal Maniac (trade paperback)
* dvd: Invader Zim, Volume 3
* book: Invincible: Family Matters (trade paperback)
* book: Fletch
* cd: a mix of songs with Jesus in the title or lyrics
