pretending the bed is a raft

When I worked for Algonquin, we published a book called Pretending the Bed is a Raft. I guess this is something kids do, usually with siblings. They get on the bed. And pretend it's a raft?

Anyway, I never did that, but I'm doing it today. I have a nasty cold and so, at 12:18pm on a work day, I am now laying in my bed where I plan to stay for a very long time... or at least until I have to pee.

Here is an exhaustive list of all the things I have in or near the bed:

1.) This here computer, without which, no blog for you.

2.) Cell phone for calling SK at work and whining.

3.) BOOKS! First, The Lost, a book about the holocaust. It's sooooo good, but I'll write more about it later. Also, I have a book about Jewish holidays and a Haggadah for Jews and Buddhists, which I bought last year online. Passover starts at sundown tonight and even though I'm not having a sedar tonight (even though I'm not even... uh... Jewish) I've got these things with me in order to celebrate by proxy.

4.) One magazine: the first New Yorker of my new subscription. Yay!

5.) A cup of Gypsy Cold Care tea with honey and ginger in it. Yum. It helps.

6.) Big glass of water.

7.) Roll of toilet paper. This is very important.

Anyway, that's all. I feel like shit, but I'm sure I'll keep blogging all day. Why not? Misery loves company.

Hmm...never pretended my bed was a raft, but I did pretend it was a pool a lot.

I would say hope you feel better soon but then that might mean less blogging, which would mean less procrastinating for me so I won't.

What? I'm selfish.
