I’m Back! Remember Me?

Oy vey – that was quite a cold. Well, it still is. But now it feels like what I recall normal colds to feel like. I never take sick days for a simple cold (I’ve had quite a few colds since the last time I took sick days in 2006 and never dreamed of skipping work over them). But this one has been brutal.

On the plus side, the strange dreams have ceased, as has my ibuprofin/aspirin/Sudafed/Afrin/Mucinex cocktail. I wonder if there’s a correlation?

And on the plusser side (is there such a thing?) Randy and I each received $500 vouchers from American Airlines for our inconvenience during last week’s “emergency” repair episode. In addition, they also said to fax them receipts for any actual expenses we incurred as a result of having to extend our stay (extra night’s lodging, meals, transportation). Sweet! I knew American Airlines was my preferred airline for a reason.

    Karl? Karl who? Refresh my memory…do you still actually work at HLS? Or are you just running around the world on Randy’s FF miles?

    Sweet! Fly to London with me? (Or back into Boston from France with me?) 😉

    FF Miles? You can get those now? What club do they give them away at? Does it come with a can of Crisco?
