It’s Experiment Week


As you all know, I’m recovering nicely from my chemotherapy. That is to say, technically I’m recovering nicely. All my numbers are in a good range and are continuing to improve, and there’s every reason to think that will continue.

However, I still feel crappy. Heavy fatigue and nausea rule my day. But I’m thinking that I might—might!—be feeling ever so slightly better on that front. Just a smidgen. Plus I’m so bored I could scream. So I’m going to test my energy level this week by writing two blog posts a day. It’s unlikely that any of them will include heavy analysis. They’ll be more in the mold of this morning’s post, “Marco Rubio is a Moron,” which was not exactly a strain on my gray matter or powers of concentration. But it was kinda fun.

Anyway that’s the plan. And just to add to the difficulty factor, it turns out my neighbors are beginning a 3-month home gutting and remodel. That should be nice and noisy, especially since we share a common wall with them. So here’s my tentative daily schedule:

  • Eat breakfast
  • Rest
  • Write blog post.
  • Rest.
  • Take a walk around the block.
  • Rest.
  • Write blog post.
  • Rest.
  • Take a shower.
  • Rest.
  • Eat lunch.
  • Rest.
  • Take another walk around the block.
  • Rest.

And….that will probably do it. We’ll see.
