My froat hurts. I hope I'm not coming down with Ted's cold. I have this sort of half-formed idea that if I drink enough orange juice, the owie of drinking the orange juice will strip away the owie of the sore throat and I'll miraculously be better. We do not, however, have that much orange juice.

The last day and a half I haven't wanted to do any work. Don't want to edit, don't want to respond to Chance emails, don't want to write, just don' wanna. This is probably mostly don't-want-to-edit based, and I've been editing even if I don't want to, because hey, that's my job.

Big goal today: finish the edits, at least on paper. Tonight, respond to Chance emails. In between, maybe go to the farmers' market...
Current Mood: soresore

Miracle elixirs! It's getting harder to find those salesmen though, and you've always got to watch out for a tornado or a falling house, depending on your religious preference.

I've always found that spicy herbal non-caffeinated tea helps sooth my throat.
Around here there are some really good roobios teas, supposedly loaded with anti-oxidants. The amount I've been drinking since I quit smoking and cut the caffeine WAY down may explain why I haven't ever got past the stuffy nose bit. I have this vision of billions of little red anti-oxidant cells with swords, mace, whips, spiked chains, pikes, (no amour shields or chain mail, it's not needed) marching around my body trampling over any virus that get in their way. Stomach ailments however, are like cannon balls; they just plow right through the troops. Only, it being my body it looks more like the battle scene in Labyrinth.
As my knee Doc who sounds like Donald Sutherland says, "if it hurts, don't do it you idiot, give the body some time to heal. The person who incorrectly applied 'no pain no gain' to anything but muscle should be shot!"
