holdouttrout: parrot that says *thinks at you* (telepathic_parrot)
I have been on vacation for the last week and a half, and I actually planned ahead so I wouldn't have to go in today. This turned out to be a Very Good Plan, because while I was on vacation, I caught The Stomach Flu. I capitalize out of love because I haven't been that sick in the traditional barfing sense... well, since I was a kid.

I will spare you the gruesome details. Unfortunately, since I was visitng [livejournal.com profile] annienau08 at the time, she didn't have the same luxery. If there was any doubt, she is a most amazing friend with a substantial tolerance for gross and pathetic fish. We also, aside from the aforementioned sickness, had a fabulous, fannish time discussing the prodigious merits of Helen Magnus and Sam Carter, among other things.

I'm still feeling under the weather, and Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I somehow doubt I'm going to the extended family gathering. At least I should be okay for Saturday night Thanksgiving dinner with just my parents and brother. :-)

I also attempted to set my apartment on fire today. You heat some oil, turn your back for one second, and whoosh! Thankfully I remembered what to do, so I DIDN'T try to throw water on it and DID take it off the heat/cover it right away. The smoke alarm only went off for about 30 seconds, and my apartment no longer smells like smoke. Victory!

I'm catching up today on TV in between drinking plenty of fluids. Here's a lightning-fast rundown with no spoilers:

1. Castle remains super-cute and awesome.

2. Parks and Recreation remains super-cute, funny, and awesome.

3. Fringe is intriguing me--I really think that my only problem with the current season has been the fact that it's sort of jammed into a shorter time frame than a regular season, and that it's showing a bit. Anyway, I'm coming down more firmly on the positive side of reactions, especially after the last two episodes.
