Wow. This is such a non-exciting New Thing for the first day of My Year of New Things, but, well, it's raining and I'm trying to get over this nasty flu/cold, and so I took Nyquil and slept all day. And that's my new thing. I've never taken Nyquil before. I said that some of the new things would be big and some of 'em would be small, and that sure is a small one to get my year started, but it needed to be done--I'm feelin' better already--and so I'm gonna let it count. The rest of My Year of New Things has nowhere to go but up. Which is a good thing, because if I had started My Year of New Things with something like "Named Sole Survivor by Jeff Probst," well, then what the heck would I do tomorrow, right?
By the way, I'm writing this entry on my laptop while sitting on the toilet pooping. I don't believe in too much information.
