It’s going to be one of those weeks. I can just smell it.

  1. Woke up this morning with a terrible cold. I felt it coming on all day yesterday, but tried to ignore it. It will not be ignored.
  2. In anticipation of feeling like garbage this morning, I took *one* NyQuil pill (half the regular dosage) at bedtime last night. Overslept by two hours — feel like garbage.
  3. I needed to bake and choreograph today. Neither is looking too good right now.


  1. I got to see the Js this weekend.
  2. ”         ”       ”   Mavis this weekend.
  3. Our DVD player died, and at 9:30 last night, we found a new one that does more neat stuff than the one we had (built-in WiFi, cool interface, more options), for not much more than we paid for the previous Blu-Ray player. Score.

Weekend = success. Now there’s that icky week coming up. Hork. Bring on the Super Bowl — my last excuse for not doing anything tonight.

    Well, nuts. I remember you saying that you felt “something” coming on, yesterday. I’m so sorry you’re feeling poorly! I say wrap yourself in your warm blanket, stay on the sofa and watch movies until the big game. Oh, and have The Thriller make you some nice, hot tea/honey&lemon! Love you!

    Sorry to hear about the BD player….whadja git to replace it??

    Oh, and of course – sorry to hear you’re not feeling well, either. NyQuil can really kick you in the butt, no? But it works… thankfully!!

    I love yous guys! Thanks for the written TLC. Mave — I cannot stop sneezing, oi! I’ve waited all day to take DayQuil, so I’m going to do that, then take NyQuil a bit earlier tonight, so hopefully I don’t feel so draggy tomorrow morning. Butt kick indeed!

    We got this, Boom Boom. Love it so far. And I shouldn’t have said “died” — the old one plays DVDs perfectly. It just won’t grab a wireless signal anymore. After about 5 hours of trial shutdowns, firmware/software upgrades, and numerous phone calls to our ISP, Cisco and Samsung, everyone deduced that the WiFi on the player was just DOA — at least for us. And rather than send it in for repair (ludicrous charges), we just decided to get a new unit. We’re enjoying it.

    Only bummer: no Blockbuster app at this time (they’re not part of the Bravia Internet Video Network, which Sony supports). So I cancel Blockbuster at the end of my trial period.

    Suz — I ain’t complainin’! I just made CHOCOLATE CAKE. :-)
