I Missed History

I am so p*ssed off that I slept through the inauguration! Damn cold. I stayed home today, thinking it best that I spend the day in bed as I was still running a fever last night.

I took a Benadryl which managed to both dry up some of the goop AND knock me out. Both were good things. I just hate that it made me miss out on this historic day.

Now I'm just hearing that they just took Ted Kennedy out of the luncheon on a stretcher. Seems like there always has to be something to dampen the brightness. (Not that I'm a huge fan of Ted Kennedy though I think he has done some good things, but I fully sympathize with his recent health battles.)

Speaking of health battles. I am starting to cough again so I guess I need to deal with my own. That said, off to take drugs and probably crash and miss even more of the presidential coverage.

I got a lecture today from a client because I didn't watch the whole affair. Unfortunately, I did have to work today and wasn't able to break away.

Did you try Jayne's suggestion to remedy your cough with the Vicks? Curious of the outcome. Feel better.

You poor baby! You have the flu, not a cold! Stay home another day and lick this nasty bug.

I missed it today, too, because I was sleeping. (Worked last night; work tonight.) I'm guessing they'll re-run a lot of tonight on CNN. I feel really bad for Sen. Ted Kennedy. I'm hoping he's just been doing too much and maybe missed a dose of anti-seizure meds.

Thanks for all the good wishes and advice! Trying the Vicks this morning before I return to this weird kind of hibernation. :-)

We Tivo'd the whole inauguration on CNN up in Media Central - you can come watch it on the big screen when you're healthy and unlikely to infect my staff.
