I'm Sick. Miserably Sick. ARGH.

Hey. So...I've been sick for the last 5, maybe 6, days. I'm officially going to die. Ok, so that's a little dramatic, but I have to let you know that I'm pretty miserable. I've been holed up in my house since Friday night. I went to an hour of Jiu-jitsu on Saturday morning and did a half day at work on Monday. Other than that, I've just been right here in my living room.
So you're probably wondering what I have been doing. Well, wonder no more. Here is a list of highly important activities that I have accomplished in the last 5 days.
  1. I've planned breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next three weeks (starting as soon as I get my appetite back).
  2. I've read 4 books. A Thousand Splendid Suns was written by the same author as The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini. It was just as wonderful. I re-read The Great Escape by Paul Brickhill. I now want to re-watch the movie, which stars the original McDreamy, Steve McQueen. The Summer of '49 is written by David Halberstam, one of my favorite documentary writers, right beside John Krakauer. A Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks. One thing that I've learned from these books is that there is so much beauty in tragedy.
  3. I watched Star Wars Episodes IV, V, VI, and III. I'll probably work on I, and II after I finish this blog. Also watched Meet the Robinson's, Shooter, Little Miss Sunshine, and Goonies.
  4. Put new strings on my guitar.
  5. Organized my pantry.
  6. Emptied my entire Inbox on Hotmail, and responded to every email that deserved a response.
  7. Searched the library catalog online and put every mixed martial arts book on hold.
  8. Started pondering some New Years resolutions for 2008.
  9. Did 4 loads of laundry.
  10. Applied some self-tanner to my legs. I did a C- job, by the way.
  11. Budgeted through December.
  12. Challenged myself to Boggle. I tried to beat my previous score every round.
  13. Picked out Christmas gifts for everyone on my list and ordered them online.
  14. Drank 2 liters of Ginger Ale and ate a jar of applesauce. Oh, and half a can of soup.
  15. Went to the InstaCare and shelled out $35 for the doctor to tell me that it was a virus and to just wait it out. Aarrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Dear Miss Bored Out of Her Skull,

There are a whole plethora of books on MMA out there. Read any you like, obviously. Three, and only three, I would recommend for purchase. They are as follows: The Book of Knowledge by BJ Penn, Mastering Jujitsu by Renzo Gracie and Guerilla Jiu-jitsu by Dave Camarillo. Each has a unique perspective on how to approach MMA or jiu-jitsu. Renzo's book is especially informative and provides a history of Jujitsu which appears to be the most comprehensive available. Have fun and come back to the gym, Miss Thang.
