I woke up this morning feeling like someone had punched me in the left kidney. Now, as I am not in the habit of going to bars, much less getting into bar fights, I couldn't fathom why this could be. It faded a little bit after awhile, but throbbed gently through most of the day.

Also, my hands shook quite violently from about 11-1 which is the point when I managed to finally get something to eat. The jittery feeling still hasn't left, really.

But enough about my general (un)health. I recently read a novel called Darcy's Story (about, who else?, Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice) which was quite good and intriguing all the way up until the very end when they started confessing to each other. After that point it just generally got teeth grindingly irritating and I had to put it down probably never to be picked up again. Unless I decide to read the last chapter, of course. Missing all of the annoying lovey-dovey, smoopy, fluff that killed my enjoyment of it, of course. Liz and Fitz are a far more interesting couple when they hate each other. Or when Fitz is being all Emo!Fitz.

I'm slowly dipping my toes back into the ocean of books and I'm glad I have historical fiction to ease myself back in. There was a list of HistFic at the back of Darcy's Story that was really intriguing. On it was a novel told in the POV of the Jane Eyre's charge while she was working with...damn, the name's escaping me. It'll come to me eventually. I'm really excited to find that one as Jane Eyre is one of my favorite novels of all time, hands down. Rochester! That was his name...now what what the girl's name? Madeline? Hmm...All I remember was that it was French.

Anyway, yes. I'm slowly getting back into the habit of devouring every book in sight. I'm planning on making a book run soon, as my last book run only produced d.Gray-Man vol...5? 4? The newest one! Pride and Prejudice (which I still can't get through, but I promise you I will! Someday! maybe?) and Darcy's Story. With Father's Day coming up, I'm sure that I'll make it to a bookstore.

Nothing too terribly exciting going on here at the moment. Well, the thunderstorm was quite thrilling and I have missed them terribly. I love this time of year for precisely this reason: awesome thunderstorms. I'm really glad I didn't have to drive in it though, because that would've sucked. It's supposed to storm again tomorrow night, so maybe I'll sit outside and watch.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen any lightening bugs in the trees yet. Have they come out? I wonder...this year I'm going to take a picture of them twinkling in the trees like Earth born starlight.

EDIT: Got a response from my Dr. K about the hand shaking - hypoglycemic episodes - need to have regular and frequent meals. How come this is only starting now?

Jane Eyre's charge is Adele, Mr. Rochester's ward (and possible daughter). :)

I hear you about the thunderstorms. Today was a blustery day in Rhode Island, always threatening to rain but never raining. Jonathan and I went down to the bay since we were at school anyway, and the waves were roiling, and the wind was blowing fircely. People way out on the water were windsurfing. I want to learn how to windsurf. They were going so fast...much faster than the sailboats usually go. Of course, I'll only need a couple of thousands to get started windsurfing. But still. It was kind of inspiring.
