The Magic Nap

Ever since those miserable hours in the Las Vegas airport last Sunday, I've known that I was sick. It's the same thing that Chris so kindly passed along last year just in time for New Years Eve. Lots of phlegm and coughing. I think that human beings may just have evolved to be phlegm factories. I have no idea where it all comes from. And in such a variety of colors! Some day aliens will come back to harvest it to serve at parties as a delicacy. Yummy. The galaxies finest.

Anyhow, I was feeling worse today than I have all week. I had been trying to fool myself (and others) into thinking that I wasn't sick. I'd taken it easy at work and only pulled 12 hour days. I only did about an hour of work today and all of it from home. I had more to do, but then I sat down on the couch for a minute. It was just before noon and I was trying to figure out what I was going to do for lunch. I vaguely remember waking up long enough to lay down on the couch. My head kept falling over, wrenching me from sweet, sweet sleep each time.

Needless to say I somehow made it into bed and woke up hungry at 5:36PM. I felt 150 times better. I thought that I might have even been over the whole thing. I could breath through my nose and my lungs didn't hurt at all. I was half way through my fish taco at Wahoo's when I discovered that I was indeed still sick. I hate trying to eat with a runny nose. It's very unattractive.

Now I just have to figure out when I'm going to apply hotfix 5 for bwengine and adsbl on three clusters this weekend. If only the magic nap had not stolen the afternoon from me.
