note to self re: Guinness and Writing

Having a Guinness before doing writing, as in:

"In celebration of St. Patrick's Day, I'll have this tasty Guinness. Then, I'll put the kids to bed and do some writing."

Does not result in writing. Instead, it results in the following: A says "Daddy, sit next to my bed while I go to sleep". The next thing I know, it's 11:30 pm and I'm waking up on the floor thinking "what happened?"

Next time, writing then Guinness. For future reference.

the edge of sick

I have a small scratch in my throat and a small cough. The cough isn't too bad, but every once in a while it's a big cough that comes from deep inside my chest like it brings some sort of miasma with it and afterwards, I feel like someone took a brillo pad to my alveoli and bronchial tubes.

I've been around sick people for a couple weeks while I was in TX and NM, so it sounds like the sickness is trying to get hold of me.

This sucks. I fly to Seattle for Norwescon Thursday. I can not get sick. I have much to do before then. Dang it.

Time to load up on vitamins and water and get rest, at least as much as I can get with all the stuff I have to do.
