I've been trying to stay off the computer due to what is probably a slightly pulled back muscle, but it's somewhat better this morning.  It is fishy that my back is sore enough to prevent me writing my overdue Austen essay but still permits a couple of hours of exercise every day!  Really I was just working too hard from January through May and am now having the traditional post-semester willpower collapse - having now slightly bored myself by watching the first two seasons of House as if under a compulsion, it is now preferable to write the essay, which I am hoping I might finish by the end of the day tomorrow so that I can get back to The Magic Circle for one more round of revision.

  1. Hah! I've just done the same with those first two seasons - watched compulsively, bored myself a bit - and annoyed myself by my compulsion a bit more. And it's been years since I 've even looked at a series, though, so maybe I've got a lot of catching up to do.
