It's amazing what a couple Tylenol and some Sudafed will do for a sore throat, stuffy head and a headache.
Of course the four hour nap in the middle of the day probably didn't hurt either :)

On a somewhat related note, I woke up at 4 am this morning with golf balls for throat glands, after taking some meds and gargling with salt water (which is an amazing temporary cure for sore throats, btw), I tried to get back to sleep, but every cell in my spine seemed to be bloated and trying to push its way out of my skin. The weird thing? All I could think about, instead of sleeping, was how to describe this in my LJ with as many adjectives as possible.
That should have been my first sign that I did not need to go to work today. I did anyway, though, but gave up for an hour or so -- an improvement, as I generally ignore the whole being sick thing as long as possible.

on a sad note, it seems that the lovely miz harperwilla has deleted her journal. I hope it's not permanent.

I'm going back to sleep now. I'll hopefully have more to post later, about new years eve, or such.
