Back – and sick

Both my boyfriend and me have returned with a slight fever and a sore throat – it’s one of the in between stages where you don’t know whether you should lie down or not. They’re the ones I like least.

I am off to work soon, let’s see how I am going to cope. If I had another day off on my hands, I’d start with a review of The House of Mirth. If I wrote a PhD about naturalism, like Cabbage does, I’d definitely frequently experience pangs of crushing depression. Everything that I feared was going to happen, happened – and if not exactly, then worse. Poor Lily Bart!

P.S.: My boyfriend consoled me by saying “But it did not really happen!” Somehow that made and makes no difference to me. It’s the discursive probability that saddens me:-(

Happy Easter Holiday!

In three hours I’ll be off to Upper Austria to meet up with my boyfriend there. I’ll give myself a blog break in the meantime. You should too: give your self some sort of break, from something. Compulsory reading, for instance;-)

I’m facing a six hour train ride now during which I’ll either sleep (very likely – I didn’t sleep at all last night, but worked on a last minute equality paper) or read the House of Mirth. I’m worried now that Lily might either end up as a charwoman herself one day, or that she’ll have to marry Sim Rosedale. And it seems pretty unavoidable now that Gus Trenor is going the put the moves on her, and that’ll turn her sole friend Judy into her enemy. *Schnief*
