things get damaged. things get broken.

Today involved writing a book review and getting a tooth filled. I can feel the left side of my face again, which is kind of nice, since there was a long period where all I could feel was the absence of the left side of my face.

You don't realize you can feel your sinuses and your eye socket until you can't.

I've had kind of a seriously cruddy fortnight. I think I'm just going to watch Gone Baby Gone and eat fresh bread and roasted garlic and drink about a gallon of tea. And think about how this book needs to be put together again.

And then I'm going to start reading the next book I have to review.

ETA: oo, a BATH. desperance is a genius.

just give me a pain that i'm used to.

The glamorous life of the writer!

Well, a busy writer is a writer who stands a chance of not starving to death.
