And I thought luge was a crazy sport.


Yes. I’m at home now, merely reading the virtual paper. Enjoying the benefits of the water retention diet. Still experiencing some discomfort at times, but for the most part, I’m doing okay. Better than yesterday.

While I’m at home, I figured I would catch up on movies that I haven’t seen, but somehow own. Dark City is the first, and my goodness, that was one hell of a movie. I love the art style. And I’ve got a soft spot for the “dark lounge” music that Jennifer Connely’s character sings at two points in the movie. And yes, when you watch it, you’ll say, “Matrix.” But, keep in mind this movie came out just before that other movie. Fantastic. Recommended.

Nothing like food poisoning / stomach flu to make you realize how good you have it when your body is running normally. Let’s just say that I had extreme gastrointestinal discomfort. And nausea. And general achiness.

I would rather drink Lapsang Souchong than be this sick ever again.

My weekend was pretty good, having spent it mainly in Baltimore and someplace called, “Crofton.” It was the great Katsucon outing of 2002. Yes, I’m a con-goer. It’s like going to a foreign country. The clothes are strange, everyone’s speaking a different language, and you’re paying eight dollars and fifty cents for a ham and cheese sandwich. Ah, travel!
