I’m still sick. I took the day off today (Monday) and played Skyrim and slept. So I have nothing exciting or interesting to share except that I feel a little bit better. I’ve noticed that the only way to soothe my sore throat is warm liquids, so I need to find some sort of beer helmet that makes and dispenses tea at regular intervals.
Pepper’s been an excellent sick day companion. Except that she’s sort of a blanket hog.
Oh, and Ben brought home giant cupcakes. Because when bad things happen, we get treats. I’m sure that’s not a habit that will come back to haunt us.

UPDATE: After I scheduled this to post, Ben made us a delicious chicken and garlic pasta dish for dinner, which I promptly threw the hell up. I do not recommend application of stomach acid to a day long sore throat. It was painful. Needless to say, my cupcake remains uneaten. But, I feel miles better this morning (Tuesday), if a little shaky from having thrown up the majority of the solid food I ate yesterday. Due to my own cooking prowess I had tea and toast for breakfast, and microwave tomato soup for lunch. And I had to make the toast twice because I completely burnt the first round. In my defense, we make our toast in the oven since the toaster is broken. So it’s a lot easier to fuck up than toaster toast.
