Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Resting gives me time to read, among other things. Reading leads to finishing books. These include:

First, Myth-Interpretations by Robert Aspirin, which includes a couple of Myth short stories from his series of novels, as well as several other short works of his, a few of which were never previously published. Aspirin has passed on; one of the works was the last one he wrote, sending it off for publication just before his demise. Amusing pieces; one or two were thought-provoking.

Second was Osprey Weapon #4: Browning .50-Caliber Machine Guns which I read on my Ematic. It's an interesting look at an iconic weapon of the US Armed Forces since 1933.

Saturday was a day of rest that I would never get normally. I lazed about, taking my medicine and doing some odds and ends on the computer and Ematic ebook. Finally, I napped again and again. Probably, I was feverish at one point, but I took some more Tylenol and it broke.

When I was a bit more coherent, I put on some of the iTunesU lectures; dumped a Philosophy and Science course, listened to lectures by a Nigerian intellectual, a meteorologist about the ozone layer, watched some works on braising meats, and then took another nap.

When my wife got home, she whipped up some soup, as our stocks of canned soup were completely depleted. Wild rice and mushroom with chicken; yum!

Netflix gave us via streaming Incident at Oglala, a documentary about a case from the 70s of a confrontation between the FBI and AIM, which didn't need to happen, and which led to the demise of the FBI agents. Justice, however, doesn't appear to have been served.

This morning, I feel much better. I think I might be able to get out and about for the day, but I must see to my spouse, because she didn't get as much rest as I did, yesterday. We shall see.
