Don't ask me how it happened, but last week, in the middle of a heat wave here in New York City, I came down with a bizarre flu-like virus. I'm talking coughing 'round the clock, sweating at random hours of the the work day, having absolutely no appetite -- all of the horrible things that are usually reserved for the cold days of winter.

Luckily, I was able to catch up on my sleep, and by the end of the week, I had enough energy to take care of the important things in life -- like, you know, prepare to move out of my apartment.

Of course, I didn't do any of that. Instead, as if I were in middle school all over again, I decided to stay in bed, avoid my real friends, and hang out with my true BFF, Instant Netflix.
