Sick. Tired. Another cold; doesn't seem like it will ultimately be that bad, but right now my throat's feeling pretty ripped up (cold, dry weather haven't exactly helped there, with the heat sucking whatever little moisture is left, but mostly it's the drippy sinuses that are behind it. The sort of drippy sinuses that make you think maybe you're okay because you can mostly breathe fine, except that sometimes all of a sudden you've got drippiness all over the place, and, well, there's that ripped up throat).

I haven't gotten much sleep in a couple days. So, no studying at all, and work's been a bit on slow side, progress-wise (although staying put has helped mitigate that slightly -- haven't left the apartment since Monday, although the snow would have discouraged that anyway the last couple of days. I may like snow and cold weather, but single digits and annoying cold change the situation somewhat).

Maybe I should stop being social, so that way I won't catch any more colds. And then, I could go stark, raving mad as I have only my cat to talk to (my cat's English isn't really very good, so communicating abstract concepts is pretty frustrating). Hmmm. Maybe that's not such a good plan.

Drinking lots of tea. Isn't helping.


Also, my internet is down. So I guess I'll be posting this tomorrow. Fucking Comcast.
In the mood: sicksick

A humidifier will do wonders to clear up sore throats and bad colds. Fill it up and leave it on all night while you sleep. It's like drinking tea all night long.

I've had the humidifier going full blast for a couple weeks, ever since the petting the cat started to generate enough electrical energies to be detected from space.

But lately, I've been doing the hot shower sauna thing on a regular basis, too. Doesn't really help that much. The fact that the drainage has (apparently) started to slow down has had a much bigger impact.

Ah, the mystery is solved. I did not know you were sick cause your "I'm sick" entry was written while I had no internet. *gives you chicken wonton soup*
