Sailing the Seas of Nausea_____________________December 6th, 2004 - monday___



December 6th , 2004 - monday

Nausea is the worst. Seriously, I can't think of a much worse state to be in than to be tossing and turning in bed, unable to sleep because of that horrible rolling discomfort in your stomach and intestines, hoping that you can throw up again to feel better for another hour, whereupon you have to go back through it again, and again. As a kid, I always had stomach problems, but I haven't had to deal with pain on this scale in a very long time. I believe I was dealing with some food poisoning from Friday's lunch, and the ordeal lasted until about 7 o'clock Saturday morning. Unfortunately, it was also the day of the Barnes and Noble book signing, so I went to it and tried to look as normal as possible, smiling politely. It took every ounce of energy to remain standing on my feet, but no one seemed to notice, which is good. I think I am also hooked on the Anti-Nausea medicine Khang got me. That stuff is like liquid sugar. Anyway, the signing went great, and it was fun to see my whole family show up and say hello. Melinda Meadows and the Barnes and Noble staff were really nice and supportive, so I can't wait to do it again, probably for the next Flight book.

still rolling...

Daisy Kutter is down to the last handful of pages. The signing and the food poisoning knocked my schedule back a couple of days, but everything should be wrapped up this week. Stories for Flight Volume Two have been showing up and they're awesome. The story by Don Hertzfeldt alone is worth picking this one up. You guys are in for a treat with this book. Lots of great stuff in it...
