Ugh! This week!
I already mentioned this in my week in television post but I basically spent almost this entire week in bed, suffering from and then recovering from a sinus infection. You know how you always hear about writers who wrote their best novels while they were stuck in bed, recovering from illness? Well, that was not my experience. Instead, I was miserable. I read nothing. I wrote little. I watched TV once on Thursday. I did watch a few movies but most of them were on Monday afternoon, before I got totally ill. Basically, from Monday night to Friday afternoon, I was too out of it to really focus on anything.
Seriously, it sucked!
But, the important thing is that it appears to be over so and I’ve got a lot of things to watch on my DVR over the upcoming few days!
