What’s a sick girl to do?

I’m still suffering from a cold…at least I think it is a cold. I can’t breathe through my nose and my body aches all over. What’s a girl to do when she’s feeling so bad? Why, curl up on the sofa with a mug of peppermint tea (to try and help the poor, stuffy nose) and some Guy of Gisborne fanfic, of course. 😉 Reading is high on my list of hobbies. It isn’t uncommon for me to read two or three books a week. But when not feeling well there’s just something about immersing yourself in a world of fantasy-focusing on your favorite characters-that helps you forget that you’re feeling under the weather. Today I’ve been reading stories by an author who goes by the name Hosmond and have been utterly and completely engaged. Seriously, who wouldn’t feel better reading stories that allow your mind to conjure up images like this:

or this: (Yes, I know this is a gratuitous shot, but you know you love it too!)

From a sicky seeking some refuge: I would like to say thank you.

Thank you Richard Armitage, for making a character that could have been incredibly one-dimensional and boring in the hands of a lesser actor, the best thing about Robin Hood. While your definitely nice to look at, the depth you gave the character was what kept me watching.

Thank you fanfic writers. I am immensely grateful for the time you dedicate to writing your stories and the tales that you weave. The bravery you exhibit it putting your stories out into the world for people to not only read, but also critique fills me with admiration.

  1. I hope you feel better soon! You really do a lot of reading. Well, so do I but not as many books as I’d like. I read a lot on the internet, you know RA blogs and such! Also things that strike my fancy when I’m researching my latest post. I can go off on a lot of tangents!
    But I do love to be immersed in a good book.
    Thanks for the eye candy. There can never be too many pictures of “you know who”. I need to remember that too. 🙂

    • Thanks for the well wishes Phylly3. I do read a lot, but when I was in grad school I learned to read really fast. Once school was over and I had time to read fiction again I found I could blow through a book really quickly. Like you, I do a lot of online reading as well, including all of the wonderful RA stuff. 🙂
      I think you’ve hit the nail on the head when you said “there can never be too many pictures of ‘you know who.'” Even if they are pictures you’ve seen a gazillion times, they don’t ever get old! 😉
