Meow.

Uhoh... Hermie has discovered that he can achieve whole new levels of cuteness by tucking his paws underneath him. Next: world domination!

I've gotten pretty bad at regular - or even irregular - updates on LJ lately. I blame Facebook. But since family and coworkers can see what I put on Facebook (and I've never really been able to trust their custom groups) sometimes you just can't beat old El-Jay.

I haven't been to work since Monday. I'd had a sinus headache and other random symptoms - scratchy throat, earache; nothing that lasted a long time, but long enough to be irritating - since last week, and Tuesday I decided I'd stay home. Then I decided since I was going to be home anyway, I'd go to the doctor to make sure it was nothing serious.

According to the Doc, who looks like Santa without the beard, I had a sinus and upper respiratory infection. He tsk tsked me in his Santa Claus way for not coming in sooner, gave me a prescription for a heavy-duty antibiotic and some cough suppressant with codine, and told me that he'd like me to stay away from work until next Monday. And I was thinking, no way... maybe I'll call it for tomorrow, but I can't stay home that long. I have the sick days (we get 10 every year) but still...

Well, it's Friday and I'm home. I probably could have gone in today, but it seemed to make more sense to wait til I was 100% (or closer to 100%) and start over fresh on Monday. The symptoms have mostly gone away but I still have that achy, tired, hit-by-a-Mac-truck, recovering from sickness feeling. Plus if I was at work I wouldn't have been able to take my cough medicine, because damn that stuff is strong.

So I'm going to have myself a little six-day weekend, only bed-ridden for half of it. It's been a weird week.

Anyone else think Nick and Juliette from Grimm have kind of a modern 'Eric and Ariel from The Little Mermaid' vibe going on?



(Incidentally, I've been waiting since the pilot for them to kill off her character. Not wanting, just expecting. Since when are heroic main characters allowed to have nice, attractive, apparently normal significant others?)

Fringe

The end of tonight's Fringe gave me a sad. We were long overdue for a little Astrid love.

However, I can't express how much I dislike these 'transitional' episodes. After waiting all week for new Fringe, it'd be nice to see a little more forward progress in the mytharc.
