I’ve been sick

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

For a while, actually. I originally came down with it at Christmas, and the medicine I was prescribed seemed to work fairly well. Unfortunately, I suffered a relapse. I got prescribed more antibiotics, but it’s been a struggle. At one point, I spent five consecutive days flat on my back, all day, every day.

I’m much better now, but I still have a bit of a cough and my voice isn’t completely back. I was going to go to a local ukulele jam tonight, but I came home from work exhausted and took a nap, and it’s too late to show up now.

I’ve been accumulating links, and I may make a huge “miscellany” post, or I may go through and keep the reference links and discard the rest. I’ll decide that later. Maybe.

Well, that was painful

Yesterday’s Super Bowl is now history, and Denver has, once again, lost big. I believe that Denver is now on the losing end of three of the five most lopsided Super Bowl games. I suspect that this fellow is feeling more pain than most, though. Ah, well. As John Wayne said, “You have to be tough if you’re going to be stupid.” Someone on Twitter suggested that he could fix it by having the “a” changed to a “u.”

Also on Twitter, a Denver fan asked for someone to tweet something funny, so that he could laugh instead of crying over the game. The response was quite amusing.

I’m rather partial to these, as well.

I was expecting traffic to be worse than normal this morning; I’ve seen surly drivers after Broncos losses before. Surprisingly (and gratifyingly), I saw nothing of the sort. Now, tomorrow, when there’s snow on the road again, things may be different, but that’ll be because there are always people who don’t know how to drive in snow, or don’t care to be careful.
