Yep.  It's that time of year.  At least once a year, I get sick with something.  Tuesday, I had a tickle in my throat that I just put down to an maybe having scraped the back of my throat with a popcorn bit.  (You know, those little bits of the covering of the popcorn kernel...).  Wednesday morning, I woke up, and instantly knew that I wasn't that lucky.  Yesterday I was mostly miserable.  Today is about the same.  Following my lovely and brilliant wife's advice, I took Advil, which helped.  (I know that "Take Advil" doesn't seem like particularly brilliant advice, but she knew enough to know that I wouldn't have thought of it myself.) 

Today, I've taken Advil, Aspirin, and my usual daily assortment of blood pressure/heart meds.  I still have this headache that feels like a combination of high stress (muscles around neck and skull pulled tight) and high blood pressure (kind of like my left eyeball wants to pop itself), but it's down to a dull stabbing pain.

I'm hoping that I'll be all better by Monday.

I also found out last night that the meeting that I was traveling to week after next has been moved to next week instead.  And I've already got my plane tickets, and my equipment won't be there nearly in time for me to do anything worthwhile next week.  So I'm keeping my original travel date, and just missing the meeting.  (I need to do experimenting and self-educating, which was the secondary reason for the trip).


  1. Hope you get to feeling better soon. My boss and my dear wife have both been battling illness on and off. Plus, you know, that Dave guy.

  2. Thanks. Just keeping myself amused reading Ogre lie about me on the Paizo boards. He's stating that I lobbied to allow animal companions do something. I never lobbied. I have one post in 2009 where I asked whether or not the Mr. Chuckles alternative would be legal.

    And the whole thread had 3 posts, including my original post. (with no answer from Josh, or anyone else at Paizo.)

    Good times!

  3. I never understand how when I'm sick, I feel better at night than I do during the day. I wish I felt this [word that doesn't mean well, but means not miserable] during the work day today. I would have gotten more accomplished.
