Morning, All

Another day, another dollar.

Woke up this morning with a muzzy head, but felt somewhat better after breakfast. My neck is still hurting me from whatever I did to it the other day, although I think it feels somewhat better than it did yesterday. Will wait and see how the day treats it.

Work this morning is somewhat slow, but that's to be expected on the odd Friday. Just having a quick herbal peppermint tea, before settling down to do a bit of answering business stuff from other parts of the translation job I'm working on now.

Looking forward to the rest of the day.

This was a somewhat slow month of reading for me, to be honest, as there were too many other things going on in January that had me busy and all that. Overall, I managed to read 5 novels, 4 RPGs and RPG products, 1 magazine, 6 comics, and 0 graphic novels in January. This brings my final year total for 2011 to 5 books, 4 RPGs and RPG products, 1 magazines, 6 comics, and 0 graphic novels.

New Melanie Doane CD

Got home and forgot to grab the mail out of my mailbox, so just went out and took care of that.

I was pleased to find that the new Melanie Doane CD, The Emerald City, has come out in the limited Fan Edition, and arrived. I've been listening the album for the last hour or so, and have to say that there's some really good stuff on this CD. Lovely music, as usual, but it's been a while since Melanie's last album.

Great stuff.
