Early morning Nyquil, Robitussin and chicken soup only helped a little. I know ice cream is wrong (dairy makes more snot) but it feels good at the time. And I have a big jar of maraschino cherries to use up. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
10-ish, took a shower because that always helps, steam and such.
Felt like a zombie with a sore throat, spent most of the day in the LayZBoy watching BadFootball™. 49ers lost again - 0 and 5. This game and the last they came within inches of pulling it off, but the team seems to have a Will To Lose®.
Got to Janice's at 4, she was having a problem with her new-ish laptop and email on her phone and tablet. Took a long time to decide that the laptop's wi-fi adapter was broken. It wouldn't DHCP correctly. It couldn't grab a gateway address, so while it could connect to the router, it couldn't see the internet. I could have manually forced it for her home use, but this is the laptop she uses away on Red Cross emergencies, so that wasn't a good idea. I suggested taking it back to Best Buy and as a work-around she could buy a USB wi-fi adapter.
The email was kind of funny. I had recommended she change her passwords so that she had one for financials, one for social and one for everything else, and use the 8-character format of Xxxxxxnnnn! which she did, on her PC but she forgot update her phone and laptop.
She was going to buy me something at Starbucks but I was dying, so I went home and watched more football, and The Orville. I am liking that show as much as I expected to, but in a different way. I expected more of a comedy, and superficial characters. Instead we get serious social issues, a deep look at some of the less likely characters, and dick jokes. It is true to the look & feel of ST, but with a fallible captain. Fallible, but not a laughing stock.
When Nyquil & Robitussin didn't work, I remembered Afrin. That helped enormously, and I was able to get to sleep for about 90 minutes at a time. Spook mostly stayed curled up in the bedroom.
Plans for tomorrow:
Try going to work
Call Kaiser advice nurse
Get better drugs
