I don’t take sick days very often. Since I can usually work from home, I need to be pretty wrecked to feel I can’t do my job. I had just such an occasion recently, and it had occurred to me, that being sick isn’t actually all bad for movie/video game junkies like myself. It just so happens that some of my favourite things to do require very little energy or thought. Of course, not all movies/games will work… it’s not like I’m playing Tactics Ogre and watching Shawshank Redemption here. More like a, Super Mario and Crank kinda day, if you catch my drift .
