sick on my birthday

It comes as no surprise to me that I fall ill on my birthday. Pretty much every year since junior high, something bad has happened on or around my birthday. Pretty sure I was food poisoned, but can't really be sure. Luckily, I have a stock of anti-nausea pills from my many experiences with food poisoning during college.

That said, I am not going to do an in depth blog post today as part of the Back to Basics series. I don't feel well enough to sit at the computer and type. Instead, I will find a book to read or a video game to play and have at it.

In other news, I get my first paycheck today from CreateSpace. So at least something good will happen today. And hopefully, this sickness goes away by tomorrow.

That's all for today. Hope everyone else is healthy, and I'll be back on Wednesday to talk about apostrophes and quotation marks.


  1. That really sucks. I hope you feel better soon.

  2. So sorry you're feeling ill. I hate that. The paycheck news is fantastic, though! Kinda jealous :)

  3. Sorry you aren't felling well. Receiving royalties must be nice though. How very exciting, no matter how big or small? And I hope your birthday has lots of smiles.

  4. Eesh, sorry to hear you've got a birthday curse. Happy birthday, though! I hope the royalty check kicks off an upward trend.

  5. I'm sorry you're sick! Not a good thing on any day, but even worse on your birthday. I hope you can make the best of it though with a good book or some great video games. Have fun and Happy Birthday.
