This is monotonous for me, too, believe me.

Shuffling zombie today because the antibiotics are knocking me out.  Or it may be the lack of sleep, because I got very little last night and not very much this afternoon.  I am getting better, but this is not fun.  I foresee much more in the way of exercise when I feel a little better; this is getting ridiculous.

…So the eardrum didn’t exactly *explode*.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to get any more graphic than that.  Suffice it to say that I am back from the doctor, and on a regimen of antibiotics, eye drops, and the allergy medication that you have to get from behind the counter.  Hopefully they’ll all start to do their magical work in the next day or so.

Oh, and no more Robitussin for me. Was apparently making it all worse. Fair enough.

I should just take a couple of days off.

I’m feeling better, but I’m still feverish — and now my youngest has an earache.  Having eliminated the usual cancer/pregnancy* diagnoses from the Internet, it still looks like my kids are going to have a miserable couple of days.  And I’m kind of tired.

*Everything is a symptom of pregnancy. We discovered that during my wife’s first one. Seriously, check it out on the Internet sometime.

My wife has informed me that I am running a fever…

…and I believe that the subtext there was So go to bed, you idjit.  Or maybe it’s my subtext. Certainly at the moment I can’t think of a single interesting thing to say.

PS: Yes, if this keeps up I may have to go to the doctor’s.  I figured that one out already. We’ll see after a proper night’s sleep.

I would love for this cold to be over…

…especially since the bus came for both the kids today! And there’s no appliance guy scheduled for tomorrow! And it was great out this weekend! …And I have pretty much a summer cold now.

Blegh. Well, at least it’ll be nice again on Thursday and Friday. That’s something.

Still ehh.

Thought I was feeling better, but I went to the supermarket, got a few things, came back and slept for two hours. Probably not going anywhere this weekend, which kind of sucks because my in-laws are having a party at the place in Pennsylvania.  Also, now the cat is throwing up — look, I’m living in a plague nexus at the moment, OK?  Hopefully, it’s not transmissible over the Internet.

Blegh.

I may have caught what is going through my kids right now. And just in time for the trip this weekend, too.  Assuming that there is one.

Normally the Rule is straightforward.

Calling it early today.

One of my kids is sick — luckily, he got to the bathroom in time — and the other one thinks that he might be.  And I’m feeling sniffly myself, and my wife is tired, and it’s exactly the right amount of time from Monday, when my youngest would have gotten exposed to the viral stew which is your average county-wide kid’s program. We may not be going anywhere this weekend, after all.

So… music, and then bed, I think.

Why not call the Alcatraz Letter writer’s bluff?

To recap (and how did I miss this?): in 2018 a letter surfaced that was allegedly sent to the FBI in 2017 by a man named John Anglin. Anglin was one of the three people who disappeared after breaking out of Alcatraz in 1962; they got out of their cells, got on a homemade raft that they had made in a homemade workshop, and promptly disappeared. The FBI’s official verdict is that the three prisoners promptly drowned in San Franscisco Bay, which is both boring and boringly likely; but the US Marshals always want to see the bodies first before they close a case.  Which kind of tells you a lot about both organizations’ internal landscaping, honestly.
