Tiptoeing on glass


In Boston, and sick, dog sick, a miserable, all-too-familiar stomach sick. Usually I’m spared a day, a few hours, of peaceful vacationing before it pounces on me like an attention-starved cat — but not this time. I blame airplanes: the filthy, filthy beasts. It’s being stuck in a tin can for five hours breathing stale air infested with who knows how many strains of thisitis or thatococcus — a ripe agar, these modern comforts.

So I am up & unhappily awake. Elaine Pagels is on television, talking about the Gospel of Judas, which at least is good and fascinating. Half of this National Geographic special is a refresher class after reading The Gnostic Gospels, but I eat this stuff up (and am not presently in any condition to consume much else). Beyond Belief is in my travel case, though I cannot justify starting a book at this hour. Hopefully my body will settle down and I can get some rest, and just in time to travel again, too.

I like traveling. It’s the getting there I hate — which is, more or less, the story of my life.

  • Sorry! I was only in Boston overnight, and on very short notice. Took the Chinatown bus in.

    I was thinking I'd be able to come out again at the end of the month, but I'm not sure that I'll be able to. :/

    Damn. You were in Boston? =(

  • ::giggle:: I understand how that goes though; I love travelling, it's just the means of getting from point a to point b that's the trouble. ^^

    Then again, no faster or safer way to get from point a to point b than flying. ^^ I swear, one day someone will start an airline that specializes in spacious flights, clean planes, and breathable air. And they'll make a killing!

    /me pokes Kyle in the eye.

    Warm H2O is what you need. Avoid the OH.

    You're in Boston and you didn't poke me?!

    How can you think so hard when you're so ill? Doesn't your brain get mushy?

    I hope this is a very, very brief episode -- especially since eating new food is one of the best parts of travelling.

  • The flu sucks, Yuki. I recommend vast quantities of alcohol to make your body an inhospitable host for the little buggers.

    Get well quickly!
