health report

Sleeping two days straight is pretty nice. I think I will go back to bed soon.

So, yes, still sick -- still got the cough, the stuffed-up head, etc. Within those parameters I'm feeling pretty good, if that makes any sense. I have some reasonably severe cold medicine that I think I will break out around 1pm and we will see where that takes me. I just got off the phone with Chris Monti and he said I sounded better than yesterday too, so that is encouraging.

Yesterday an Amazon order arrived, so I read The PIrates! In an Adventure with Scientists: A Novel, which was fun. I also read the first page and a half of The Last Witchfinder by James Morrow, which I think I heard about from rimrunner, although I have been a fan of Morrow's for a while. Hopefully I will make more progress on this book today.

Fortified with lots of sleep and drugs, I think I will be able to do everything I want to tonight, although I may do less talking than usual, if that is possible. This is good.

In other news

FedEx dropped off a Roomba a little while ago. So we'll see how that works. (It needs to charge up for three to sixteen hours before I can use it, depending on which piece of documentation you believe, so it will be a little while before I can give it a test.)
