Cold, day four

My nose started running Saturday night, by Sunday afternoon I was hot then cold, weak and disoriented; by Sunday night I was sneezing incessantly (it only stopped when I took some Night Nurse).

Monday I went into work thinking I might be all better soon but really just was propped up with a stick; yesterday I slept until 10 but did make it in at noon because I had an interview with a guy who'd taken a train in from Manchester and I wasn't going to make him have to eat his train fare just because I was feeling under the weather.

Today I'm not on any cold medicine and I'm tired and down. Work had me in a three hour meeting in which I was basically being bullied into agreeing to lie to our employees about how they've been doing for the year work-wise in order to meet a curve that HR has established. I can't face the thought of demoralizing my people by telling them they're "underperforming" when in fact the only thing that's going on is that we don't have enough money to pay everybody as much money as we would have to if they all got the bonus we are supposed to give to people who are "on target." So I was told that _I_ was not "being a leader" because I wasn't willing to "play the game" with everyone else. Yay woo.

Anyway, it's 4:30, I just finished my last teleconference for the day, and now I'm going to take a nap. See you all in slumberland.
