I want to apologize for not posting as many reviews as I normally do this week. I got lambasted with some pretty crappy news that I wasn't emotionally prepared to handle. It kind of felled me and left me in some sort of shock for a while. Thus, I didn't read at all this week, or do much of anything but cope. Hence the paltry posts and reviews.
Today I indulged myself by doing some photography (otherwise known as photog-therapy) and some other stuff that helped me balance myself out, for lack of a better term. So, for the first time all week I feel like I have my head above the mud and I am, once again, in the mood to read and blog and interact with humanity.
I guess what I'm saying is, I'm still dealing with my news, but at least I feel human again.
I will be having some surgery in November (or possibly December, depending), but until that happens my reviewing should be normal. I think I got all the bad news a person could possibly get this week. If I go into another reviewing/blogging rut, I will write a post letting you know.
As for everyone who has thrown out support during this time (and it has been a shockingly large amount of people), I truly do appreciate it. A lot of people think that it doesn't matter what you say/don't say over the internet, but I'm here to tell you it matters. I felt like I was drowning all week and people came out of the woodwork to send my condolences and sympathy. It's kind of amazing to realize how many people out there give a damn. Very cool. None of you had to do that, but you all did it anyway and it really gave me a brilliant silver lining on my black cloud.
And, lastly, an update. I am officially starting on my "tell me what to read" list. I went to the library and got "Guards! Guards!" and "Storm Front"(as well as a few other books).
Thanks again, everyone and I'm sorry I've not posted as much this week.
