I am reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer, and I have to say that I am pretty glad I am not eating animals while I am reading it. In fact, I should buy my own copy of this book to read in order to remain a lifelong vegetarian. More accurately, if I read this book a couple of times, I would undoubtedly be vegan for life. While the book does have some weak spots, for the most part it is well-written and incredibly interesting. I should have waited for summer to read it, but I couldn’t resist all the hype. For once in my life, I am a follower.
I think I am finally getting over this weird sinus thing I have had going on for most of the break. It started out with a mildly irritated throat, escalated into sneezing and head-congestion, and is now maxed out with all the above, plus swollen glands and an excruciating sore throat. I am hoping that my little nap (30 minutes) this afternoon will help me feel better tomorrow to work on this dissertation proposal. Additionally, I hope that I will feel well enough in the morning to run. Just a couple miles would be nice.
I am thankful for good books, excellent writing, and human reason.
