Happy Monday
Woke up this morning with a nasty fever -- every muscle I own hurt, and them some. Plus my skin hurt, and I was shaking and sweating at the same time. Yuck! On the plus side, I have no cold/flu symptoms otherwise, so I'm hoping that when I kick this fever I'll be healthy again.

I took some advil when I woke up, and some tylonal later. My temp is currently close to normal, and although I'm going through periodic mild chills to mild sweating, I'm feeling much better than this morning. Weird, I don't know where that came from. I hope it goes away quickly.

To double my annoyance, my internet went out this morning after I'd only been working an hour. Comcast says they are doing something to make their service better, so there might be intermittent problems. Hmph. How is this better?

I dawdled about for awhile, hoping it would come back rapidly. I didn't really feel like leaving the house, but wanted to get some stuff done since I was feeling better. Finally I gave up and packed up... I'm now sitting in Caribou enjoying their free internet, but having difficulty staying focused. I'm okay at being mobile, have all the necessary tools, but I'm still not used to it.

On the plus side, yay for coffee! Also I picked up some Zumba for lunch. Yum.

At least you can't give your real viruses to your fellow employees today, one of the bonuses of working from home. Hope you're feeling better soon. Maybe you need to move to ATT internet, I am glad RoadRunner is what I have, not Comcast.

I was in the area that started out being Roadrunner, then was bought out by Comcast. Monopoly, much? Yeah.

I am in Texas using Time Warner, no Comcast here thankfully.

Yeah, I was on Road Runner too.
Stuck with them when it was eaten up by AT&T and then flipped over to Comcast. During all of that somehow I got a bunch of premium channels for free. I called them up and told them that I did not order those channels and I did NOT want to get charged for them... long story short, they kept billing me, I kept calling, they kept removing it from the bill and giving me another trial period, then they'd bill me, etc... finally about five or six months later they stopped billing me. But the extra channels stayed. Somehow in my mind that made up for so-so at best internet access. Had the extra channels for years. They just went away a short time ago. NOW I keep thinking about WOW or Yahoo DSL or... *something* else, but I have to admit its just apathy/inertia that keeps me with Comcast now...

Oops. That "Yeah, I was on Road Runner too" was me (thought I was logged in)

Ours was out this morning too, but Dave emailed and said it was back up, so you may be able to return home if you want to.

I hope you feel better soon!

Ah, Comcast. Have you seen this yet? Classic.

As for the sick - I'm a big shill for Airborne. Dose up on that Vitamin C. Can't hurt and might help!

Lucy's got similar problems - it's a viral problem, so she just has to live through it.

Its possible you picked up the virus on your business trip.

Virus' love new territory.

Going mobile with you job is cool.

You could really do it anywhere you wanted to.

Hm, I should try that. I've never actually spent time hanging out in the library. They have free wifi? Is there a place I could talk without disturbing too many people? I talk to coworkers via headset/VOIP pretty regularly.

Hopefully this will stop being necessary though! Grrr!!!

Welcome to the International Travel Club!

*Everybody* gets sick when doing those international flights, especially if you don't get enough sleep or enough time to overcome jetlag. On the good side, do it often enough (which you will!) and your system will get used to it, and not be so accomodating to foreign viruses. ;)

I used to get sick almost every time I traveled. This tendancy has faded recently though.... When I travel to Europe in August I was just fine, so I had high hopes I'd be okay this time as well. *sigh*
