#2292: I really hope I am not sick again.

...but it's hard to hold on to hope when you feel as crummy as I do.

I woke up in the middle of the night with a dry cough which would not stop; finally I got up to see if I still had any cough syrup. No: the legendary dire cold I had in the spring of this year had resulted in my using all of it.

To stop the cough I had to take a couple of generic NyQuil capsules. This stopped the cough; it also knocked me on my ass. My head is still woozy from that stuff, which is about how it normally works on me anyway.

I'm sitting here feeling too warm, and dizzy and cruddy. *sigh*

The Japanese have a saying: "Only idiots catch summer colds." Dang it.

I didn't do anything yesterday because of how crappy I've been feeling, and it doesn't look as if I'm going to do anything today, either. That blows.

"Sprayed-on jeans" used to be hyperbole. Now they can do it.

Aerosol clothing. Man, science is fantastic stuff, isn't it?

If you get into a trade war with the people who hold a good chunk of your national debt, you will lose. I suppose no one has been able to explain that to Obama in words of less than two syllables, seeing as they all went to Harvard or Yale for some useless degree or another.

Poverty is going up and the Democrats want to change how it's tabulated.

I would go so far as to say I believe this is absolutely true:

Got to love XKCD.
