Boring Update
Blah, still sick! Now it's head congestion. Like I told F last night, if I hadn't been sick for a week and a half already, I'd definitely swear this was the beginning (well, middle now) of a standard head cold.

At work anyway. Darn this being-a-grownup thing, eh?

Is it a bad sign that I'm quietly humming King of Pain to myself? I don't know where the song came from, or why it's stuck in my head, but it is.

But truthfully I'm not doing all that badly. No fever, just the unpleasantness of a cold and congestion. My head is a balloon, and my brain is floating somewhere above it, somewhat disconnected.

I'd just rather be through with being ill. I have stuff I'd rather be doing.

I don't have anything clever to write. Maybe later. I should be working anyway....

I love Day-Quil gel caps for when I feel like that.

I hope you feel better soon. In fact, get better soon! < grin >

Yeah, I used to be a major DayQuil fan also! But recently I've been trying to avoid cold medicine, because (1) it tends to keep me from sleeping, and (2) my theory is that by masking the symptoms it will make the cold last longer. I have no proof of reasons #2, but I just feel like toughing it out is better, when possible.

However I decided maybe your idea was a good one, so I compromised. I bought and consumed one dayquil today at lunch, instead of the recommended two. (: (:

Thank ya, I will.

feel better, and whose version of King of Pain, the Police's of Ms. Morrissette?

Alanis covered King of Pain? Yikes, I'm not sure I want to hear it. No, definitely Police. Love that song.

work is for when there is nothing left on the internet to read, or friend's left to call.

Just don't be sick this weekend.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: January 18th, 2006 08:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know! I'm definitely trying to be healthy by then.

or just drink lots of Jim Beam on Saturday night then you won't care.

Being a grownup definitely sucks! When I feel like that I want to stay home, curled in front of the TV, with Mom making me hot soup.

What ends up happening is me at home plopped in front of my desk telecommuting, heating up a can of Campbell's...

I had the two-week cold earlier. Over Xmas break, actually. It sucked. But... good news is, you will get better! I think it's just some sort of Super-Cold virus, you know how these things are mutating nowadays.

I have it, too, only when my virus held the door open for bacteria on its way out, so now I have bronchitis. Whee. I have a new healthy regimen consisting of drink, sleep, pee, cough, drink, sleep...

Needless to say I'm not back to work yet.
