Notes from my life:
Three of the four people in my house have been sick. I'm not sure if it's the pig flu, sinus infections, or just bad colds, but we've been coughing and hacking for the past few days. And there's been sinus congestion, lot's of sinus congestion. I felt so bad last Friday that I took a sick day. That's something I almost never do, by the way. My younger daughter is (so far) the only one unaffected (or is that uninfected?). I'm not quite over it yet, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My wife, on the other hand, is still in the middle of it. She has coughing fits that keep her awake at night. They keep me awake at night too. Misery loves company, right?
The new TV season has started, but nothing has really caught my attention yet. I'm still waiting for 24 and Chuck, but I guess we won't see either of those until after next year. For now, I'll have to settle for my Friday night shows: Monk and Psych. It's just as well, maybe I'll do more reading.
I had to take a computer based training (CBT) course at work yesterday. Mind-numbing dullness of epic proportions. I finished it twenty-four hours ago and my brain is still fogged over.
I won the most recent weekend caption contest over at RT's. Special thanks to RT for judging my snarkification worthy of note.
I've been trying to bring my lunch to work more, as opposed to buying some tasty-but-deadly fast food. I was out shopping for something for sandwiches when I saw this shaved French dip deli fresh meat from Oscar Mayer in the store, so I decided to give it a try. It gets a very enthusiastic thumbs-up. It's not cheap, but it's worth the price. And it still costs less than that Five Guys bacon double cheeseburger I might otherwise have.
I can't wait for Friday. I hope the weather's good this weekend. I have a pool to close and a deck to stain.
