I woke up sounding like a frog. Given that my job entails answering the phone, not a good thing. So I'm home again. I did take a shower and get fully dressed, as opposed to wearing a flannel nightgown all day.

You know your nose is stuffed up when you transfer Lush Tramp shower gel (which has a lovely, rich earthy scent that I would wear as a perfume) from a large bottle to a small one and you can't smell it. At all. I could smell it in the shower because the hot water helped, but not any more.

Today is a day for salty and sweet things because I don't think I'll be able to taste anything else.

However, I feel *better* today. I can concentrate more. I might even write one of my pending stories. I think I'm up to hidden_hibiscus's Ron/Draco.

On the PDA front - it's sitting in Nevada. It's been in Nevada since Sunday. I have a phantom pda cover, but no PDA. I should be more upset, but when I have a cold, I can't be bothered to be upset.

I just stopped shaking. I'm serious.

I just watched a man shove his wife *hard* on a reality series because they were coming in *second* in a race. A race where it only matters if you come in last. It's not fun. It's ugly and awful and the host of the show - he looked as horrified as I felt. I wonder what he'd have done if he could have.

There were lovely moments tonight and there were some awful racist or ignorant comments. This overshadows all of them.
