If 2007 couldn't get any worse in its final days,a stomach flu bug took me down for the better part of 3 days.At the stroke of midnight last night,I was already snoozing.I'm still feeling a bit groggy;but hopefully the worst is behind me,though whether I finally make it back to work
for the first time this calendar year depends on how my body holds up the next 12-15 hours.Up to now,I hadn't missed multiple workdays at a time due to illness(I've missed single days in two seperate instances years apart.)...
Anyway,I've placed the opening bid on the first 4 bilingual
volumes of the Urusei Yatsura
manga.In another anime note,I've dropped Baccano!
since it probably would do me too much good even if Solar
released additional episodes because multiple sources(including Wikipedia
)suggest that Chic Jefferson-sama may not even be present in half the episodes...
Happy birthday to both Akiko Tsuboi(who turns 71)and
Masako Ikeda(who turns 69)...
