What happens when you are sick and bored

I was muy muy fatigued around 1:20 this afternoon and felt that I couldn't make it through my last class (75 minutes)and decided to return to my apartment. I am currently dealing with a terrible cold which is the result of going home to see my parents. My parent's house was like a petri dish of germs and I swear I picked this up there. So on doctor's orders I snuggled up in my warm bed, with some fluids at arm's reach and watched a little Top Gear...That lasted for an hour...this was the afternoon, I got so bored.
  1. I decided to surf the web. I found a wonderful gem hidden in the multiple popup adult friend finder advertisements. I found another blog called Dorothy Surrenders. Quite possibly one of the funniest things I've ever seen on the web. First thing you see is a post all about Jessica Biel and the possibility of her being a gay...not my language...She writes for lesbians from a lesbian perspective. The picture is funny too; Jessica Biel with a girl grabbing her ass, while Justin Timberlake isn't paying attention...priceless.
    Oh, and she has a link to Whedonesque...I'm in love, 'Chasing Amy'-style. For those who don't know Joss Whedon is a god, he wrote and created Buffy, Angel and Firefly. He also has been writing for comic books like Astonishing X-Men, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, Fray, and most recently (if you consider the fact that the release of the last two issue was around 3 months apart) he's been writing an arc of The Runaways, brain-child of another god Brian K. Vaughn.
  2. In addition to loads of websurfing for entertaining blogs I caught up on my comic book reading. I just mentioned I'm a big fan of Brian K. Vaughn, I have been an avid fan of his work Y: The Last Man. It's a sixty book story that has been going since 2002. It's the story of Yorick Brown, son of a Presidential cabinet member, he's an amateur escape artist with a Capuchin Monkey named Ampersand. They are the last surviving male mammals on earth and Yorick has spent the last 5 years trying to find his girlfriend Beth who was in Australia when every male died. It's been...pretty interesting to say the least and with only two issues till the end It is going to start stressing me out. A very important character just died in the most recent issue, and it will definitely have repercussions heading into the finale. Also, Brian K. Vaughn is on the staff of LOST, which is just fucking glorious.
