It's 46*!!!!

Sadly, that's the biggest thing to celebrate this week.

I have been sick, varying between Athena trying to crawl out of my left temple and my stomach churning like the cement mixer filling the potholes down the street. But after two sleeves of saltines and countless glasses of water, I am finally feeling better. I'm still crabby though.

I have done little writing this week. Actually, I have written many pages of essays. No prose though :(

Guess what...NO CLASS NEXT WEEK! I can finally bust out some wordage on Sasquatch Eleanor (the WiP I am collaborating on with Kelly Polark) I am not classifying it as a secret, but all I can tell you is that it involves a sasquatch and an Eleanor.

I decided to give you a break from watching music. I kind of shove it down your throat, don't I? I will at least tell you that Marcus Mumford and I have been renewing our vows all week.

Any other ideas about what I should do with my school-free week?


  1. Awww, feel better, Jon.
    And the warmer weather feels gooood! It's 52 and I didn't wear a coat! I'm such a rebel!
    And hurray for Sasquatches and Eleanors! I plan to have a chapter or two done by the time we Skype.

  2. Get better soon.
    Collaboration sounds interesting.
    For next week: rest, write, watch, listen and go on a walk. My suggestions to get your inner spirits back on track.

  3. I'm glad you're starting to feel better, especially with an upcoming week off!! Enjoy!!

  4. what? Why wasn't I informed that my gorgeous Wonder Woman Kelly and you are writing something together?!?!?!?!
    Nobody cares about my sensitive feelings any more ... :)

  5. It hit 57* here. I saw kids in snow pants and moms in tank tops at school pick up. :)

    Sorry your stomach is icky.

    Glad you're rallying.

    Hope next week is even warmer (it will be for me muhahahah)

    Yay for colab progress!!

  6. Feel better, Jon. And 47 is worth celebrating.

    So is anything with Sasquatch in it. Especially coming from you, so we know it will be an amazing balance of funny and grounded.

  7. Enjoy that week off, and recover completely!

    Oh, and Sasquatch Eleanor is the most intriguing title I've seen in a long time.

  8. You're probably too young for those MILLION DOLLAR MAN sasquatch episodes, huh? That's what I think you should do with the week off...try to find those. But be warned, they are VERY, VERY scary (or at least they were to little Anita).

  9. I've been feeling exactly as you described. I think you use use the time to rest up. Feel better!

  10. Glad you are feeling better. Something is definitely going around. I hope you get lots of writing in this week. Especially since you are probably snowed in today.
