I was happily participating in my first Armchair BEA, but got knocked out of the last couple days due to oral surgery. Prior to the connective tissue graft that I had on Friday, I thought I'd spend the remainder of Friday and all of Saturday happily recuperating on the couch, writing more blog posts, and visiting as many other blogs as I could manage.
In reality, I spent Friday in a Vicodin-induced sleep-haze and then Saturday experienced the rather unpleasant side effects of that drug, which ended up causing more pain than it killed. Today I feel like something that's crawled out of a cave, but I'm standing upright (or at least managed to shuffle to my armchair), able to keep food down, and can keep my eyes open without my head splitting open. I hear Maureen McGovern singing the theme song from the Poseidon Adventure in the background. You know, "the morning after" song?
Life is looking good again.
Here are the posts I did write for Armchair BEA:
- Introduction: I'm an ABEA Newbie
- Classics: I Became a Classics Reader Through TV
- Genre: From Literary Theory Snob to Mystery Reader
- Blogger Development: No Big Plans, But a Schedule Would Be Nice
- Literary Fiction: Kinda Like Porn, You Know It When You See It
Until next year!
(Okay, time to lie down again...).
Up again after realizing I didn't mention perhaps the coolest thing that happened during ABEA--I reconnected with a former co-worker, Charleen, while browsing #ArmchairBEA on Twitter. Check out her book blog: Cheap Thrills (love the name!).
p.s. I was an Instagram Challenge Winner! Thanks for the giveways!
