Got hit by a whopper of a cold at work today and actually had to come home and rest. Sucks, 'cos I love what I do (a little too much). -30C (-22F) wind chill doesn't help. Chugging soup and aimlessly browsing the web, when I'd rather be writing code. Stuffy head and runny nose makes that nigh impossible.
Admittedly, most people would kill to have my problems.
I've worked thru a sickness before, but right now I feel so broken I dare not attempt to think. Popped a couple of OTC miracle workers - if they do their thing, I might embrace Visual Studio (with much glee) later tonight. Right now I have a throbbing head and a nose that resembles a leaky faucet so I think I might just lie down and get some shut-eye.
A number of years ago, my wife, daughter and myself all got the chicken pox virus. For me, it ended up as conjuctivitis. Couldn't go to the office, but designed and wrote a log truck scale reader application.
It was kinda nice to just do coding with no interruptions.
Well, plenty of liquids, rest and hope you feel better soon.
A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again. The boy asked, 'What is this Father?' The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, 'Son, I've never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is. While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheelchair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button.
The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order.
Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.
The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son.. 'Go get your Mother'
