And We're Back

We've also caught a cold. Probably one of the little bastards at the Indian wedding I bar tended at over the weekend. I guess it's a cultural thing, but the Indians seem to have no problem bringing really young kids, stroller age on up, to what traditionally (to me) would be an adults-only night time affair. I guess some people don't believe in baby sitters. Do people still hire baby sitters at all anymore?

So I woke up this morning with a pretty sore throat and a mild sniffle. It's turned into a full on sneeze-fest with a totally stuffed up head. I'm currently running a fever and I have a pounding headache. Fortunately it's one of the hottest days of the year, so the fact that I'm really warm doesn't seem too upsetting.

I also woke up extra early today, as Verizon still makes their service appointments anywhere from 8AM to 5PM. Had they sent the repairman at 8:00 we would have been fuck out of luck cause there was no way I was getting up for that. But I decided to chance it and got up at 9:30. He arrived around 10:30 so my luck. As it turns out, my internet problem was a frayed and about to break wire running along the baseboard. It was fucking up my service, not enough to disable it completely, but enough to drop the connection repeatedly and run horribly s-l-o-w the rest of the time. All is well and the system is patched until I work up the energy to move furniture and replace the $10 phone cord. Our high-speed DSL line is high-speedy again, and I'm happy to report that on-line porn is enjoyable once again.

I think that's enough for today. Riley needs another walk and then I think I'll put in a movie and get to bed. Hopefully will be on the mend tomorrow. Regular (for me) posting will resume for sure.
