Summer Colds Suck
So, it started off as an occassional cough on Tuesday. By Thursday it was a sore throat and frequent coughing (like once every 2 minutes). By Saturday, luckily, most of the coughing was gone but a sore throat was still there and a runny nose showed up with occassional hot and cold flashes (very flu-like). Today my throat hurts really only after a sneeze or cough, but the runny nose is still there.
This sucks. I already used 2 sick days from work, as well as my scheduled day off during the pay period, to try to get better, and now most of the weekend and none of it is working. Grrr.
In other news, Leslie Bryne got trounced in her primary on Tuesday against a part-time defense contractor and part-time local elected official, Gerry Connolly. Most people expect VA-11 to go blue in November, especially with Obama targeting Virginia’s electoral votes. It’s just a shame we couldn’t pick someone better to represent the Democrats in northern Virginia. (I mean, Jim Moran, my congressman, is not much better personally or ethically, but at least he’s a progressive voice for his progressive district.)
My friend Nick has started a blog, Fat Man After Dark. The link is in the blogroll on your left.
And look out – there’s a secret society looking over your shoulder! Just kidding. Christian Duque runs a very lefty blog, TheRadikal.com, which like mine has an unfortunately high amount of posts regarding our mutual alma mater. But he’s in the process of doing an interview with me, and part of that is a raffle to get an autographed copy of “Reunion at University Avenue”, my first novel. If interested, check out his blog from the link on the left.
So what’s going on with you guys?
