Happy birthday to jlassen!

State of the 'Song
Oh you guys. Oh. You guys. This sucks.

I'm pretty sure the achiness is mostly thanks to the horrible slog through half a foot at least of snow yesterday. (I have a long walk from the bus stop, most of a mile.) I have hit the Robaxin for that.

But also I feel like my throat and lungs have been flayed. And the worst part is that I cannot breathe. Which always causes a low-grade panic reaction for me. I can only take shallow breaths, and when I cough, which is often, I can't get any more air in. So I have quiet little freakouts and have to constantly run the "be patient, air will come, shallow breaths" tape in my head.

I am additionally cranky that I have to baby my lungs so much in cold dry air. Having something like this means I pretty much can't leave my house without getting much worse.

Daily Science
The Orion Nebula: still full of surprises.

I would do BPAL reviews, but I'm a bit stuffy-nosed, too.

Plans
Rest. Rest. More rest. If I have the energy, I may write Arisia recaps. But I expect to spend the day in bed.

Oh hey.

Did you hear the Nichelle Nichols interview on NPR yesterday? It was absolutely charming, though it clearly underscored the fact that little has changed since. Here's the link to the transcript:

not knowing the phone system your work has I don't know if this will be any help or not. If they have an IP phone system, or an IP gateway to their phone system, they may be able to configure you an IP phone that could sit on your network at home and let you take/place calls. It sounds like a lot of your work there involves phone work.

Again, not sure if they have the capability, but it might be worth a query...

Hoping you get better soon. There's been a lot of the lung crud going around the country. I had a pretty bad bout of it last week.

at least it would keep you out of the cold and possibly making your lungs worse...

Oh, right now I'm useless on phones anyway; no voice, plus the cough.
