I didn't go to work yesterday. I wasn't really sick... I think my actual virus went away awhile ago. I don't feel wobbly when I stand up, or achey, or swollen. But the after-affects are taking forever to go away -- they're almost as annoying as the darn cold was! All that junk that had taken over my sinuses is draining into my nose and chest, so I keep coughing and blowing my nose. Very early yesterday morning I awoke, barely able to breathe, in the middle of a terrific coughing fit that lasted like 15 minutes straight or something! Sheesh. Then it took me forever to fall back asleep. So when I woke up again (an hour after my alarm went off), I was exhausted. My chest was worn out from all that hacking. And I was about to be late for a meeting. It just didn't seem worth it to rush around and get ready for work. And I would have had to leave early for a stupid dentist appointment anyway. So I called in "sick" and slept until 1pm. It was nice having a day off...and I'm coughing a little less today.
There is a new woman at work. Her name is Emily. Em-i-ly! I can't stop calling her Lisa. I don't know why... I don't know anybody who is named Lisa and looks like her. I guess somehow my brain thinks she's a Lisa though, and I can't break it of that habit. I've apologized, she's okay with it, and she's agreed to answer to Lisa until I finally get my brain straightened out.
I voted for Kerry, and I'm bummed he didn't win. But I don't think he was going to be The Answer To All Our Problems or anything. He's just a politician. The whole "one man one woman" thing is a much bigger disappointment though.
I ate a candy bar (Twix) for breakfast today, and drank a Diet Pepsi. And I wonder why I'm not losing weight!
I stole 2 diet pepsi's from the conference last week. I still have them in my backpack.
Well, that's all the confessions I can think of for now. At least, the ones I'm willing to tell you. (: Maybe I'll confess to more things later...
