In other news, I be illin'. I have one of those lovely head colds where my eyes and cheeks feel puffy and two sizes two big, and I think my actual brain is in a helium balloon bobbling above and behind me, tied to my ponytail with a bit of ribbon. I've been making enough sinus noises that the guy in the cubicle next to me came by with several packs of TheraFlu; he made me one, and he refused to leave until he saw me start drinking it. He is now offering to go across the street and bring me back a pint of rum. (I said no-thank-you.)
I had headaches all weekend, but I felt otherwise okay fortunately. The cold politely waited until I'd finished with my big competition, then (once my defenses were down saturday night) it swooped in for the attack.
Hopefully it won't last too long.
