Sniffle sniff, yup it's a cold

Throughout the holiday season, as my co-workers and friends caught colds, I'd be warned to take care of myself lest the same thing happen to me. After all, something nasty was going around and taking people out left and right.

"Eh," I'd say, "If I get sick I'll get a day off so, y'know, that's OK with me."

Fate was just waiting to pounce on me for that. She was merciful until the Christmas season was finished, but now I've been struck with a scratchy throat, stuffed up nose, and a total inability to concentrate.

It's not a bad cold (so far) and if I baby myself for the next few days it should resolve pretty quickly, but how inconvenient to get sick now, when Seanie's on the mend from his Christmas cold and we could finally get some work done around the house.

On the bright side, I got to curl up on the couch and watch Sunset Boulevard again. It is such a good movie. The acting, the writing, the way it's shot...just gorgeous.
