Yes, I’ve definitely come down with something

You know that feeling you get, a kind of rawness in the back of your throat, that bloated feeling in your gut, a stuffed up head, a glassy hot feeling to your eyes. You know what I’m talking about . Well, it’s happening to me right now. I hate it.

After work today I had dinner with Kelly and her friend at Thaiphoon, which is, obviously, Thai food. I’d never had Thai before, but I purposefully chose something spicy from the menu so that I could taste my food through this cold that I’ve got. I ended up ordering the Pik Kaur, which was actually quite tasty, even though I couldn’t finish it. After dinner, Kelly and her friend went shopping and I headed home.

For the first time ever, I did a little writing on the train ride home. Pulled out my laptop, fired up Scrievner, and did a little work on the novel for NaNoWriMo. Incidentally Scrivener is working beautifully for this project. It’s the first time I’ve really given it a chance and I really like it. I ended up doing a total of 2,300 words today. Some re-writing was involved and I know I should avoid that in first draft. I’m trying. I’m dropping notes in Scrivener’s notes field to remind myself what I want to fix or change later on.

I applied for an EZ Pass today. I drive up to New York just often enough to make it worthwhile, if for nothing else than to speed up the drive a bit and avoid the long lines at the non EZ Pass toll booths. It says I should receive my transponder in 5-7 business days. Maybe, just maybe I’ll have it in time for the trip next weekend.

Watched Smallville and The Office this evening.

I’m chock full of NyQuil and off to bed!
