Back on my feet today after coming down with a miserable sinus infection of sorts; fever and chills for days is not how I'd rather spend a weekend. But, thankfully, I had to skip only one class on Thursday as I was going down for the count.
Rude awakening: things don't stop when one is home sick in bed, the world keeps marching on. And all those things that were due on Thursday and Friday, guess what? They're still due, along with everything due yesterday, today and tomorrow. I think this is what was referred to when whoever-it-was once said: "There's no rest for the weary".
On an up note, I am so very much looking forward to the final installment of Peter Jackson's monumental epic Tuesday night at midnight. I watched the extended DVD version of The Two Towers over the weekend and I'm very excited, again. Very few movies are able to move me to such emotion as the LOTR movies have, and I am certain that Return of the King will be their finest hour (times 3).
