No posts yesterday because I spent the better part of the day sleeping and when I wasn’t sleeping I was too achy or too congested to think straight long enough to come up with something semi-coherent. It’s the sort of cold that makes you want to curl up into a fetal position and pray for nuclear war because it would be a relief from the lead weights someone has inserted into your sinus cavities during the night. I stayed home from work yesterday, natch, and I probably should’ve stayed home again today, but I wanted to try and make it through at least part of the day.
My coworkers, however, are looking at me in that did-you-come-in-just-to-breathe-on-me way that implies there would’ve been no tears shed had I stayed home. Indeed my boss has told me that if I feel the need to leave to just do so and keep him informed on when I’ll be back. The way he looks at it he didn’t spend two years setting up a VPN/VNC/RDC system to work from home with for no good reason and there’s still plenty I could do remotely using my laptop while wrapped up securely in my comforter at home. Which is a suggestion I’m giving serious consideration to at the moment as it feels like my fever is starting to return.
More later if I can manage to gather the strength to type.
