Dave!I don't take sick days.

Well, I rarely take sick days. It's such a rare event that I can't even remember the last time I've taken one. I go to work even when I'm sick, because that's just the kind of dedicated trooper I am.

But today was different because my aching jaw resulted in a migraine that was exponentially worse. Even looking at a computer screen for longer than 5 minutes made me want to vomit, so it was kind of pointless to go into work. Instead my activity was limited to taking painkillers and anti-nausea medication. It doesn't get much more fun than that.

With nothing to do but lay in bed all day, I tried to get a handle on my short-term goals for the remainder of the year (I gave up on long-term goals ages ago). I didn't come up with much...

  • See Iron Man 3.
  • See Star Trek Into Darkness.
  • Finish the tattoo on my forearm.
  • Figure out a way to visit Hard Rock Cafes in Singapore and Helsinki.
  • Draw more.

That's actually a pretty ambitious list, considering I don't have time to get any of it done.

And... I think my five minutes are up.

    I hope you feel better soon Dave!

    And I also hope you can find some time to get things on your list done, in one way or another.

    You could ask to somebody finish your tattoo while you are sleeping.

  3. I’m assuming you feel more Dave-like by now. At least I hope you are!

    What else are you going to do to your forearm tattoo?
