The verdict is in: I do indeed have a cold. It started last Friday or so and increased in intensity slowly, so I wasn't sure if it was just allergies or what. But lots of people around me have been sick in recent weeks (although I thought I had already had that cold), so it's no shocker. The goodnews is that I was much better this morning than I was yesterday morning. And it's amazing the difference that softer Kleenex make when you're going through 100 or so a day. And I hope my ears don't explode on the plane today. (we're going to see djedi's family for Thanksgiving, and also get a Wii!!)
Being sick and playing WoW and trying to get a Wii hasn't left me with a whole lot of time to work on LJ backup, but I'm also at a point where I've done a lot of the fun stuff and the more irritating stuff is left. Hopefully I'll knock those out in the next few weeks and be done with it.
Hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving :-)
