You know that stage of being not-quite-sick?
There is this virus hoard attacking your system,
you can hear the cannibalistic yells, so you know
it's really happening and you aren't just loosing your mind,
but it isn't enough to knock you off your feet and into bed.

You don't have energy to do the big things (going downtown for a computer class or scrubbing the kitchen floor), and you know you should be resting.
So. You develop a list of Not-Getting-Sick rules.
1. Coffee+tea = pushing the liquids.
2. Chocolate = anti-oxidents = good for you.
3. Anything that doesn't burn calories = resting
Examples of #3:
- Sorting receipts for taxes.
- Catching up on sewing, but only if ironing is not involved.
- Watching bad TV
- Starting a new knitting project
- Folding laundry
- Reorganizing entire library of recipes
Now, pardon me, my receipts are calling me, and the tea water is hot.
