The cold progresses

Well, I must be feeling better, or at least the cold must be winding up, because I actually managed to spend all of last night sleeping rather than coughing my guts out.

Tonight wechsler and I went to see The 39 Steps at the Criterion. It was a clever, clever play, very good stagecraft, super tight acting, and a lot of fun to watch. Of course, it was about as fun to watch wechsler, who was laughing so hard I thought he was going to damage his spleen. shadowdaddy must see it when he gets here!

Well, tomorrow is Argue With The Estate Agents About Fees day, hopefully quickly followed with Get The Keys To The Apartment day, and the rest of the day will to some degree depend on how much energy I have. Seriously, this cold has got me flattened - I've been sitting whenever I can, I can't talk for too long, I'm just worn out. And on that note ...
