I have some reason to believe I may be coming out on the other side of this thing -- finally, thank fuck -- but one thing I need to make sure of is that my body doesn't adopt my sleep pattern of the past five nights as the new norm. I'll be honest with you: I'm not all that into waking up at 1 or 2 AM and staying awake for no apparent reason for two and a half hours. It's just not something I can get behind.

Once I know I'm completely over it, this can stop being my SicknessBlog and we can go back to talking about all the weighty political issues, album and book reviews, Creative Commons discussion, uplifting stories about angels, open source software debate, and strident sociocultural indignation this blog is known for.

One thing I do have to tell you about is that I got my aftershave balm from the website the other day -- it had been shipped (for free, I might add) from Hong Kong and had not taken long at all. Also, the external box had a purple ribbon on it, and the aftershave itself had been very meticulously wrapped in classy silver paper. That was the most elaborately-prepared thing I've ever received from the internet.
