Achoo! A Cold is Lingering

My body is telling me to slow down because a nasty cold is lingering. Not sure if it has anything to do with the change in temperatures, but I am very happy that real we're experiencing a real, North Florida winter. Just a little bit of nip in the air and sunny, blue skies.

My comfort food when suffering through a cold? Sushi, miso soup and OJ. I know - a strange combo. TheraFlu and Airborn get me through it all, too. I just hope I can sleep tonight - the last couple of nights have been rough - not because of the oncoming illness, because I have neighbors who believe "dance party USA" should happen every weeknight at 11 p.m., complete with bass. Yeah, community living SUCKS!

What else have I been up to? Holiday shopping is about done. Monday I took the day off and was a woman of leisure. Well, not really. I pretended it was a day if I was a full-time freelance writer. Got up at the usually o'dark-thirty (6:30), ran errands, wrote while waiting for errands to get done, shopped, returned home for more writing then off on a super power walk then more writing. Tuesday was back to reality. *sigh*

I did have a nice surprise yesterday. The AC site I contribute to had my interview with the Queen of Sky as last month's popular content in its monthly email. Pretty cool! Be sure to check it out.

I'd also like to introduce you to fellow AC/MySpace pal Erica, here's a story she wrote called "Going Against the Tide," about grunyons. I have to admit, I've never met or seen a grunyon. My only exposure to them is Jack talking about them on the television show "Three's Company." But, check out Erica's writings.
