i lie in an early bed, thinking late thoughts...
Because of computer issues, I was absent last week.  I'm not crazy about posting/reading LJ off my phone.  Anyway, said computer issues seem to be fixed, so here I am.

Random thoughts:

1.  I read Cormac McCarthy's The Road on Saturday.  This book blew me away.  It's a novel about a man and his son trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.  It explores what some will do to survive -- and what others will not.  Have you read it?  What did you think?  If you haven't read it and can handle a rather bleak tale, I highly, highly recommend it.

2.  I have a cold.  Yuck.  I hate being sick.  I am sick more frequently after having a kid.  :(  

3.  Woops.  M. is up from a nap.  Be back later.

the road is amazing--anything by mccarthy is incredible. he's just your basic genius who hangs out with other geniuses. seriously, he spends most of his time at the santa fe institute soaking up the brain stuff going on there.

if you're in the mood to read more speculative fiction, i highly recommend margaret atwood's oryx and crake. also a fast and absorbing read.

feel better fast!

Feel better soon.

The Road is on my to-be-read list.

Glad your computer issues are fixed.

I read "The Road" in one big greedy gulp, and have spent the last year trying to digest it. A book much larger than it appears on the outside.

Babies do tend to drag down one's immune system (lack of sleep). Try drinking lots of ginger tea to build yourself up. And... you know... sleep.

Welcome back! Sorry about the computer issues but glad that you've overcome them.

Sorry to hear about the cold. That was me last week. It was just a cold but, man, I felt like death warmed over. Get over it soon!!!

Hope you feel better soon, girl. Colds suck.

The Road has stayed with me since my book club read it. Was disappointed with the end though, it didn't fit with the rest. But it's definitely worth reading, highly recommend it too.

Hope you feel better soon. Having a cold must suck.

Sorry about the cold. It's so much more difficult being sick when there's a baby involved.

book: sounds lovely
cold: sounds crappy ( feel better!!!!)
you being back: =)
