On top of it all, my eyes hurt. From behind. I don't know what that means.

So I was pretty ill this evening. Food poisoning's the most likely culprit, though flu can't be ruled out. But it hit me like a ton of bricks out of nowhere, and that's more a food poisoning kind of thing. Sadly, I was driving at dusk when the ton of bricks hit. Let's just say we're all fortunate there was no oncoming traffic right that moment. Well, I'm more fortunate than you are, though I think it'd be hard for me to write this with all my bones broken and my chest one big subdural hematoma from hitting the airbag. As it was, there was just some cleanup and a limp back to my apartment, putting off a trip to my sister's until tomorrow, health willing.

I slept most of the evening, with unpleasant bits. And yet, unlike other times I've had this light a day, I didn't stress about Websnark. I figure you guys will cut me some slack, especially when chicken salad is trying to kill me. It was also a day when not a lot leapt out and said "snark me," which happens sometimes. Once again, you guys seem pretty cool about such things.

It's weird. When I first started this, it was entirely because I wanted to, and I had no rules for how often I posted. As it turned out, I posted a lot, but hey -- this thing was new and shiny. These days, if I don't write four snarks, I generally feel like I've let you guys down.

That's nuts, by the way. It's totally insane. And I'll never force out a snark I don't feel just to give you something to read. If I write about it, it's because I honestly have an opinion I want to talk about it.

No, if I have to force out a snark to assuage my work ethic, it'll be a meaningless ramble about my health.

Cheers.

The day you force a snark is the day the whispers of 'sell out!!!!' begin. :P

Can't be doing too badly this way, considering I just signed up a typekey account purely for comment postage here.

Hope you get better soon, chief.

I hope you feel better Eric. I love your blog, and have been reading it for quite some time now, ever since I'd heard about it through the news update that accompanies Sam Logan's webcomic Sam and Fuzzy (http://www.samandfuzzy.com/). I went through your Daily Webcomics Trawl, and did a search on your site, but I couldn't come up with a snark on that comic. It's excellent, every single strip I've read has made me happy. It brings the Funny quite well IMHO (though that's bound to differ from your opinion).

One more that I haven't seen mention of on your site (though the search wouldn't work when I tried to see if you had) is Tim Buckley A.K.A. Absath's comic Ctrl-Alt-Del (http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/).

It's kind of inspired by Penny Arcade, which I did see on your trawl, but it seems to pull of the same type of humor even better. The current storyline is excellent, and you should really get a kick out of it being a Mac user yourself.

If I remember correctly, that means you're about to wake up in the lair of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal. Either that or a Vogon Hold.

Take care and get well soon.

Between your esophgus and my uterus, we will RULE THE WORLD WITH OUR PAIIIEEENNN

THESE WOUNDS THEY WILL NOT HEEEYUUUULLLLL

(get better.)

Fear our mighty abdomenal agonizing! A-hahahaha!
