Yeah. Cold. Friggen heck.
At least Stu hasn't come down fully with it, but still has a sore throat.
Took the day off, in the hopes of recovering enough to go to work tomorrow - because I had work planned that I've been itching to do for literally months, and don't want any sort of delay to jeapardise that :( Still coughing though and I'm sure I'll get told off if I turn up .. hrmmmmmm :(
Did some testing with the PS3. Seems that it's just DVDs having problems. Commercial ones don't play at all - don't even register. DRM-free ones load but either won't play or play really jerkily and slow. Bluray is fine. So possibly just needs cleaning. Hope it's that simple and that the componentry isn't dying.
So between a couple of bouts of failed sleep, watched Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 (not in that order).
Oh, and courier companies completely piss me off. UPS supposedly attempted delivery of a package today. They obviously didn't try very hard, because I was up when they supposedly tried to call, and there certainly weren't any attempts that I heard.
The sweetie and I both woke with sore throats this morning. Not. Happy. Jan.
On the weekend I somehow managed to end up with three cracked fingernails. First world problem I know. One of them was below the skin line, and has been ripping off more and more ever since. Tonight it drew blood. Yay.
So. Fricken. Annoying.
If I went to everything that's going on this weekend I'd be pretty exhausted .. hrmmm
Possible dinner with Ken and Jeanine on Friday, Canberra show, possible club night, Paul Kelly and Neil Finn Sunday night.
Although with all that stress I'll just as likely do none of it.. hrmmmm
The Paul Kelly and Neil Finn concert on Sunday could be good. If I had someone to go with :/
Then there's Verticool coming up, which I'd love to do, but the $880 suggested fund raising is a little daunting.. bit off-putting actually .. makes it all too hard.. and it sounds like you can't really just go in it for the fun of walking up the stairs .. *sigh*
And work was just as crappy as I expected it to be. Possibly even a bit worse :(
So we were leaving Jamison this morning after doing our shopping and pulling up to the exit onto Bowman Street. There was a car in front of us so we slowed down, but then from our right this car was coming right for us. I freaked out because I thought it was going to hit us. Then the driver of that car blasted his horn at us and was going WTF? And we're going WTF??? YOU BUTTPLUG!!!!
So this was us as the red line. And the buttplug coming at us from the right as the blue line. We quite clearly had the right of way, and he was quite clearly in the wrong.
I totally hate people.
I always say I should not make plans..
Today for example .. The plan was to have a day off and tidy up the fishtank stuff downstairs.
Except on Sunday I must have picked up a cold from someone when we were out doing our shopping. Because on Monday night I had a bit of a blocked nose. Yesterday I was quite stuffed up. And last night I could not get to sleep. I couldn't breathe so just lay there unable to sleep. For hours and hours. I don't think I got any sleep until 2am. Then got a little bit between 2 and 3, but not much. Then a bit more between 3 and 4. And finally got some solid sleep until about 7:30.
So today I spent most of the morning in bed and most of the afternoon sitting around feeling miserable.
Net result: nothing particularly useful achieved. What a waste of a day. Hurrah.
On a lighter note, I do feel a bit better tonight. Hopefully I'll be able to get some sleep ..
