what good luck! what bad luck!

Boo! I can't leave the house as I am waiting for a courier. And I haven't been outside all day, because I was waiting for another courier earlier on. This lack of fresh air and exercise makes me feel stuffy and cross and stodgy.

Hurrah! The courier is bearing me a copy of the new Marian Keyes book!

Swings and roundabouts, I suppose. But I wish I could go for a walk...

It was originally called [i]Venus Rising[/i] but the name got changed to [i]The Other Side of the Story[/i], for some reason! It's not out here until the beginning of June, and out in the UK (she has a different publisher here, because she got published by a smallish house here first who don't have UK distribution) in July - not sure about North America, though...

Waiting for a package, that was me yesterday. I was waiting for FedEx to deliver some software and I also just came down with a headcold. I wanted to step out and get some tissues and cold medicine. I wanted to crawl back into bed and get a deep, medicated, restful sleep. I wanted to take a shower... but no. I had to wait for FedEx. My UPS guy comes around at 9am and knows I work from home on Fridays, so he'll wait to deliver then. FedEx? Not.

He finally showed up around 5pm. Thank goodness the Sicilian had come home around 4 so that I could at least shower.

Oh God, how well I know the skankiness of not being able to have a shower! I had to wait until half twelve this afternoon to shower, because first I was waiting for an editor to call me back and then for a stupid courier. Urgh.

Yes. My day yesterday was all about me being stanky, skanky, and miserable. Oof.

Now I just want to shove a chopstick in my sinuses.
