Slothful Memorial Day

Slept very late, later than I should have, since I'll probably have trouble falling asleep tonight, then spent the day doing nothing but reading and playing on the computer.

The FWiB called, and we talked, he's starting to get some of the more classic side effects of the chemo, feeling dizzy and nauseated and disinclined to eat. At least, I hope it's the chemo, it seems a long time from the last session but I don't know anything about how long it takes.

Anyway, I'm reading Ellen Kushner's Thomas the Rhymer, not totally thrilled with it but it is good.

Still have tomorrow off, not sure what I'll do with it yet, but I want to do something. Of course I have my meeting, and the FWiB will call, but aside from that.

Feel as though I should say something deep and meaningful about Memorial Day, but I can't really think of anything except to express sorrow and gratitude for their sacrifice. The last war that I was totally in agreement with it's aims was World War 2. All the others since then have been tainted, but I recognize that the motives of the soldiers are not the motives of the politicians who send them. So here's to the lost soldiers, who gave their lives for a cause they thought was just and proper. And I'll leave it at that.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Memorial Day.

3. Interesting books.

4. My leftover sundae from Wednesday.

5. Still have a day off.

6. My turtle.
