The inevitable fall cold.

Usually when there is a change of season, I get a cold. So right now I'm enjoying the fall edition of the change-of-season sniffles. It's rendered me tired and sniffly.

Anyway, stuff's good. I don't feel like I have much to blog about these days. School's busy as usual. I have a field trip tomorrow. I'm taking my environmental science class to a river to do a stream study. It will be a fun day, but means that I'll be outside all day, so hopefully the weather co-operates. Cross your fingers for sunshine and no rain.

I got the new Ben Folds & Nick Hornby album. Ben wrote the music and does the singing, and Nick Hornby, author of High Fidelity, About a Boy and others, wrote the lyrics. I'm getting into it. Right now I'm listening to the song "Picture Window" which is making me feeling a little bit emo. It's pretty though.

What else? I got a new jacket today. My old black spring/fall jacket is looking faded these days and has holes in the pockets and when I saw a cute black corduroy jacket while wandering through the mall today after school, I knew it'd be a good buy. I'm going to wear it tomorrow, even though I'll be watching kids in hipwaders collecting bugs.

Which reminds me, I can't forget my camera.

I should wash dishes. I should make my lunch. I just want to curl up in bed and read. Right now I'm 65% into "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" on my Kindle. I'm enjoying it. I'd like to finish it tonight.

I should call my mother.

I think my brain has been addled by this cold I have. I don't feel as on top of things as I'd like to these days.

Maybe an early bed-time will help me. Good night.

A couple of shots of scotch whiskey may help. Also I do like Nick Horby. Didnt know he also wrote lyrics. Take it easy.

To add to yrautca's medicinal advice, eat some fresh garlic bread.

Reading books when you have a cold is such an autumn thing to do.
