I'm not here....  
Fighting off either some weird unspecific illness or a wicked bout of depression. No energy to get out of bed and no desire to eat anything. Made it into work and even managed to scribble some notes for the novel on the subway ride in, but other than that feeling that "wrapped in a thick layer of gauze" syndrome. For the past five minutes, I've just been repositioning the cursor to different parts of this paragraph. Thank god nobody in the office is trying to talk to me.

Listening to: Belle & Sebastian - "If You Find Yourself Caught In Love"

You sound like me with a sinus infection.

My only other symptoms so far are that my nose is really dry and I can no longer taste salt.

Now would probably be a good time for some echinacea and/ or green tea.

Cool. Green tea, I can do. I even have some in my desk. Thanks!

You can't taste salt? Like if you shake a little bit of salt in your hand & lick it, it tastes like ...nothing?

Yeah, it's really odd.

A few tokes of reefer off my one hitter and I'm ready to do something. =)

Now that's some advice with definite merit!

Hope you feel better soon. In the meantime, be sure to eat a peach...hopefully one that looks like the shapely, ripe one above.

Haha... thanks!

Pssssst...that's when you are supposed to call in sick and enjoy lolling around bed all day.

I hope you get to feeling better.

Yeah, that would have been smart. I usually only use sick days when I'm actually well and just feel like playing hooky...
