Colds -- I'm Against Them

Over the last week or so I’ve been suffering from a cold that just won’t shake loose. It started with headaches, which stopped me from reading or using a monitor, and has reduced back to the point where I sound funny (yes, more than usual…) and have a sore throat. The weird thing is that it seems to have screwed up my sleep patterns. I’m going to bed early, waking up for a couple of hours and then drifting back off. And then panicing to get to work on time.

One of the side effects of this is the mass of unread emails and blogs that have been steadily piling up. Today I did something very relaxing and nuked almost all of them. All my mailing lists and a chunk of the less important conversations, any blog entry over three hours old and my gmail accounts are now all (almost) clear. It’s nice to be back at the starting post every now and again.
