Jizo

I guess I'd rather be awakened by traffic just once an hour before I am supposed to get up ...

than coughing three times a night for an hour at a stretch. I slept right up until the cars woke me up, but I still resent losing the sleep, and there was much nose blowing once I realized I couldn't sleep any more.

Life is pretty good right now other than the moronic cold. wechsler and shadowdaddy both thought I was sounding better last night, even though I fell over at work with a THUMP at 4 PM. (I do mean metaphorically.) Making the world's easiest dinner (boil water, add pasta, wait five minutes) still just about killed me and I had to lay down on the couch for a bit after I ate. But there's hope.

Yeah, midwinter, the time of year that sucks the life out of you one way or another. I'm looking forward to enjoying some major sunshine this weekend ... and MUMMIES!

Time to load up on medication and get out the door. I wonder if I should start taking the water taxi in to work?
