down with the sickness

*SNORT!* *cough* *sniffle* *HACK!* *cough* *cough* *SNEEZE!*

Well, I held out as long as I could... which was a surprisingly long time, actually.  One of my bosses caught the cold / automatic sinus infection bug about two weeks ago, and I was around him just about every day in all that time.  I only came down with it just this past Sunday, and it didn't really hit me until Tuesday.

As far as colds go, this one is actually rather mild.  I wasn't knocked out by it at all, and most colds do knock me out for a while.  It's the length of the sinus issues that are the problem.  The past few nights have been rather sleepless, and my voice -- while not shot, per sé -- is a bit rough.  Good thing I haven't had any games all week, but Monday's Academy games might strain my vocal cords a bit.

I'm about ready to attach one of these things to a vacuum cleaner and shove it up my nose.
