Sometime over the course of the weekend, I picked up some sort of head cold/upper respiratory/chest congestion/mucus sludge sickness. Yesterday, I pretty much just slept. All. Day. I felt pretty decent this morning, but this afternoon, I'm back to hacking and sneezing and sniffling and aching and watery eyes and feeling like the inside of my head has been over run by a million snails with overactive slime-creation glands.

I've already exceeded the daily maximum on both Dayquil and Mucinex and finished off an entire pack of Luden's honey throat drops... and emptied a box of tissues... and a bottle of PocketBac hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works... and thoroughly grossed out the people in the next office.

And I look like hell. I look more like something half dead that crawled out from under a trailer in the inbred sections of West Virginia than a professional anything on any level. No, calling off was not an option. I have shit to do and deadlines to meet. I don't call off sick unless I'm relatively sure I'm about to die. A cold doesn't qualify as a near-death experience.

Up until this line you had me pretty convinced otherwise.

Yeah, stay home. Whatever you can get done from home, do, otherwise just sleep. Spreading that stuff around the office isn't really a great productivity booster.

We have this weird flu-like thing going around here. No fever (like not even 99 degrees), and other than maybe a little puking at the onset, no symptoms other than really powerful body aches and a total lack of energy. I seriously didn't leave my house for 6 days, and was either in bed or on the couch the whole time. The only other time I've been hit that hard from the flu is when I got H1N1 when that was the cool thing to do (I worked evenings at a hospital, and they didn't manage to have any vaccines for us before it was too late). I'm normally terrible about allowing myself to rest when I'm sick, but I seriously didn't have a choice. Putting on a shirt was hard.

Sounds like Mono. When I got it, it basically is like a flu, but it wears you out and does not necessarily give you a fever. It also last freaking forever if not handled correctly.

Closing up all my tasks which are past due date. God, I hate documentation! Especially when I travelled 500 kms in a bus the previous night.

Back from a 3-day weekend and settling back into the work scene. Pretty much did nothing but lay around all weekend until yesterday. Finally took down the Christmas Decorations and had a good workout at the gym. Took a few days to recover from going downtown with the neighbors Friday night! :punk:

Just got off the phone with AT&T about data overages on my wife's iPhone. I like how they act like there is no problem with the OS when it is all over the web that iOS 6.0.1 uses cellular data when it is connected to wifi. This happened two months ago and they took care of it easy and I have taken the precautions such as turning all the data off when connected to wifi and my wife did great last month and remembered to turn it off everytime she got done using cellular data to send pictures in text messages (which is free with unlimited text, but you have to have cellular data turned on) but she forgot one time this month and the phone while connected to wifi used the whole data plan up. She averaged for the last year only 150mb of data a month.

Sorry for the semi rant

TLDR - iPhones suck, cellular data bug, data overage, I hate AT&T, go Android.

Today somehow the web filtering service at the office blocked dream in code. Listed it in the spyware/malware group actually. Weird.

OT: Working on adding breadcrumbs links to all the screens in the current application. Boring as hell, still, anything's better than documentation.

I'm showered. The kids are fed. I've had my coffee. So far, so good.

Documentation is what I do.
Boring as hell is who I am.

It all works out in the end.
