First off, I'm sick of being sick. Seriously, last week was bad enough. To descend back into the clutches of some unknown virus again this weekend after feeling so much better Friday was depressing. So here I sit, after having slept most of the day away, listening to a lawnmower and wondering how long it will take me to 1) do the work I'm backlogged on and 2) catch up on the >100 RSS feed items I have on google reader. If you blog about FoW, I'm probably just going to look at the pretty pictures.
My two daughters are home sick too. They were told they could not stay home and watch TV, so I found them each a book they could read it they want. Lily (9) is reading a 1978 copy of "A Wrinkle in Time" and Sarah (12) is reading a 1980 copy of "A Wizard of Earthsea." I have requested that they be gentle with the books, but in my heart I am prepared for each book's demise. It's a small sacrifice to see the girls reading fantasy.
Next, I want to thank all the people who nominated me for a "Stylish Blogger Award." It's flattering to get a nod when there are so many blogs with similar subject matter out there. In truth, the first time I received such a nomination/award was January 2010 when the very clever but never posting "Pop and Ice" nominated me for the "Kreativ Blogger" honor. I honestly had no idea what to make of it and so I basically sat on it. With the current storm of nominations, I think just about every blogger in the 40k sphere has gotten at least one or two of these.
