Another notebook and pen would've bought it today, but Aunty Flow deigned to show just as they were being fed their last meal. Alas for them, she's only around for a week. And there is no appeal to a higher authority. Mwah-ha-ha.
So we're taking the opportunity now to clear out the DVR. Many, many weeks of The Daily Show and Colbert Report to watch, plus a great many educational programs that have languished whilst the Muse relentlessly cracked ye olde whip. I've got Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Then there's books I haven't been able to read - I actually finished a book this morning! And started another one! And the Muse didn't argue! She knows that my writing ability suffers when I'm doubled over in agony. I can see her lovingly oil the whip, though.
I've got even more lined up that's actually writing-related. Plenty o' work on that front that can be done when ye olde body's at less than 100%. In fact, between the DVR, the books, and the busywork, it's almost too bad these enforced breaks last only a few days. (Almost. I'm really looking forward to writing those scenes I've got sketched, so let's hope Aunty doesn't overstay her welcome.)
Eventually, we'll even have a blog post on pollyticks. It's kinda hard trying to read, nurse an aching uterus, and watch teevee at the same time, but I'm getting there.
