Well, it sucks being too sick to go to work again. Actually, it doesn't suck quite as badly as yesterday, since my fever isn't oscillating quite as extremely.
I spent most of the morning sleeping/vegetating in bed while the cat lay between my knees, pinning me in place. After I could no longer bear the Today show, I watched "Dial H for Hitchcock," a documentary about (duh) Hitchcock and his films. Made mental notes to watch more of his films -- I have catching up to do.
Shortly after learning that Home Improvement's Al is now hosting Family Feud, I decided that it was time to get out of bed. After the full course of daily hygeine, I felt much more human and stumbled downstairs in search of food. I settled on yesterday's leftover kung pao chicken, which reheated nicely.
I have spent much of the rest of the afternoon reaping the benefits of last night's TiVo harvest -- Futurama, Daily Show, Freakazoid, Lupin, and more. I am just about officially converted to a TiVo junkie already. I may now be vastly more efficiently enslaved to my media masters, whoopee! The one thing I can tell right away, though, is that I will definitely want to upgrade my cabling (and multiswitch, and possibly dish) in order to pump a second DirecTV feed into the second tuner of the DirecTiVo, thus preventing the "can't change the channel, we're recording something else right now" syndrome. But all in all, I am definitely in love with it so far!
My mom has taken over planning for Grandpa's funeral services, which is a good thing, since my aunt was just getting overloaded with responsibilities. The service will be on March 1, so I won't be doing birthday festivities that weekend (new plans TBA).
The cat has now re-discovered my lap, making posting difficult, so I think that's enough for now.
