Of Cabbages and Kings: December 9, 2012

I have the flu. Not to be overly dramatic or anything, but I’m pretty sure I’m dying. So if this is the last post you see on this blog, don’t blame my laziness. Blame death. On that cheerful note, here are the links I’ve rounded up this week.

horror storiesIf you asked me what I wanted for a gift, I’d try to get you to sponsor my next vacation. If that, for some reason, didn’t pan out, I’d point you to my Goodreads To Read list. For a change of pace, however, I’d be perfectly willing to accept these gifts for a book nerd.

And with that, I’ll be over there cursing my cold for being that annoying relative that pops by for a quick lunch and ends up staying for a week. I just hope it decides to move out tomorrow or there will be consequences. I have a scarily competent doctor and I ain’t afraid to use him. Well, I kind of am, because his medicines make me unbelievably zombie-like, but I’ll use him if I have to.
