Done Being Sick, Oh Yes
Today I:

- got up at 6:30 and helped make breakfast
- wrote three tricky scripts that had been stuck for more than a week
- outlined a week of comics (in my head, but that still counts)
- went shopping
- spent 90 minutes at the gym doing both resistance and cardio
- ate a salad
- took a power-nap (not a "can't stand up anymore" nap)
- penciled two strips
- inked six rows of comics (four days' worth)
- did assorted business tasks
- wrote this

And during all that time I didn't once feel like I was going to fall down because I wasn't getting enough air.

I will concede the following:
- maybe my determination to get better coincided with actually getting better
- maybe my illness was just laziness and depression
- maybe the improved air quality had something to do with it

You know what? I don't care. That thing I've got on right now? It's my game face. I have my boots on and a pen in my hand, so if things need kicked and names need taken, I'm up to the task.

It's nice to be back.

I'm going for "the rainstorm knocked the inversion down." I don't even have lung problems, and it hurt to breathe yesterday. Today is much better.

Glad to hear you're over your bout with the Dreaded Lurgi.

Yay!

Welcome back! Thanks for the update, I was thinking about you this morning and wondering how you were doing. :)

Glad you're feeling better.

So, what's the cause of the update delay on the site? 2nd day in a row I've caught it not updating at 8 PM PST, or even 8:20 PST.

Whatever the reason, hooray!
