Besides killing my appetite, the flu completely knocked out my hankering for coffee. Haven't had any since last Saturday morning. I'm not planning to give up coffee entirely--I enjoy it too much to quit--but I may take advantage of the situation and scale back my future consumption. I'd like to limit myself to one 16oz cup per day, which in the old days would have been considered two or maybe three cups of coffee. Most recently I've been downing two or three 16oz cups a day, often as iced coffee.
Since Sunday, I've been asleep more than I've been awake. I've tried to watch some television, but most of my attempts ended with me dozing off. I did make it through Dallas Buyer's Club--a great film. Matthew Mcconaughey's Oscar was richly deserved.
Also saw Frontline's Secret's of the Vatican. The title makes it sound like schlock produced by the History Channel, but it was very well done.
And I watched the Rumsfeld documentary by Errol Morris, which wasn't so well done. I may watch it again and say more about it when I'm feeling fully restored.
