Before | After

I hate being ill.

After a reasonably good weekend last weekend, I proceeded to catch a cold, and have been in misery for most of the last week and a half.

So now, my life in point form:
  • I bought Girl Genius by Phil Foglio and Sandman book one (Preludes & Nocturnes) by Neil Gaimen (officialgaiman)

  • Went to the Ekka with Marion (paxford), Stephen (paradigmshifty), Kolya, Sasha, Connare and Scott, where I bought two dragons, some show bags, and other crap.

  • Went to work Monday last week. Attempted to go to work Tuesday last week, and lasted an hour and a half. Didn't go to work Wednesday or Thursday. Went to work Friday feelling crap.

  • They finally know what my mother has got! More on that in another post.

  • Kevin's birthday (today) was celebrated by games and drinking at Will's place on Saturday night.

  • Had dinner with Mum and Dad on Sunday night to celebrate my birthday (next week).

  • My brother's birthday (yesterday), and I gave Mum my present for him, a Coke showbag from the Ekka. Since he's never been to the Ekka, and he loves his Coke, he should enjoy.

  • I rented a parking space at work. Woo! (Be thrilled!).

  • Feeling better, but still feel like crap.

Due to the absolute crappiness I have been feelling, and the current mostly crappy I am now feeling, nothing is happening for my birthday. I'm not currently up to it.

Enjoy The Sandman

/note to self, get the set again, just trade paperbacks though, not individual issues.

Hope you're feeling better soon :)

That's what I'm intending to do, get the tpb's. Much easier to find.

However, 10 parts, at about $40 each will add up. Oh well, it will be worth it.

I had all the individual issues once.

Once...

sigh...

But I enjoy the story so much that it's hard not to have them around :(

So it will be worth it :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
