Okay, so I’ve been sick the last few days. I felt kinda lousy Monday, came home from work, and instantly went to bed and slept for 12 hours. I then woke up, and went to work, which was completely stupid. Work was not good. Ever have it where you have to clinch your fists just to keep from passing out? Yea.. standing up was an adventure. So I made it home from work, and went instantly to bed, and there I remained until about 2pm today. So how much does being sick suck? I missed Max and Ermas, I missed the Pickwick, and I spent 32 of the last 48 hours in bed, and I couldn’t enjoy it. Yeah, not kewl.
One thing is very true: Dreams while high on cold medicine are awesome.
Alan sent me this word of the day, and I thought I’d post it cause I liked it so much:
The Word of the Day for November 30 is:
tantalize TAN-tuh-lyze (verb)
: to tease or torment by or as if by presenting something desirable to the view but continually keeping it out of reach
Edgar was tantalized by the sight of the beautiful toy train gliding over the tracks in the store window.
Did you know?
Pity poor King Tantalus of Phrygia. The mythic monarch offended the ancient Greek gods. As punishment, he was plunged up to his chin in water in Hades, where he had to stand beneath overhanging boughs of a tree heavily laden with ripe, juicy fruit. But though he was always hungry and thirsty, Tantalus could neither drink the water nor eat the fruit. Anytime he reached for them, they would retreat from him. Our word “tantalize” is taken from the name of the eternally tormented king.
For some reason, I really dig words that have myth stories as their origin.
Finally, retailers have announced that they will be distributing the bonus disc in North America for those who pre-order The Wind Waker a month in advance. The disc includes the full versions of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and its unreleased counterpart, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest (Ura Zelda in Japan).
Yes, this is very, very, very good news. It’s like being inside the Nexus… The one downside: Official release date: March 24. That’s a month and a half later than originally reported. How will I survive?
After spending much of this week in bed, I found myself quite bored this afternoon, and I went through some boxes of stuff I have saved in my closet (cause I throw very little away.). I found some random pictures that I’ve added to the pictures page. Nothing too special, but there are some good stories in there.
