Vitamin C Tablets

I beat BioShock last night.  My brother-in-law, Michael Mercer, let me borrow it a little while ago.  I played it a lot for a while then I slacked off.  I was almost done anyway- it didn’t take much playing tonight. I exiled myself to the couch last night.  I felt better by and large, but the coughing seems to act up more at night and I didn’t want to bother Amanda if I could avoid it.  I did feel a lot better today.   I give full credit to the vitamin C tablets Elliot Clark gave me.  I’m being facetious, of course, but it is funny that as soon as I take those I start feeling better. Michael had some free …

Still Sick

I’m still sick.  My throat actually feels the worst it has so far, but I think it’s because everything’s draining, which is making me cough, which is making my throat worse.  I’m no doctor, so hopefully I’m right about all that.  Last night, in fact, I got into bed I think right at midnight.  At 1:00 Amanda asked (not impolitely) if I thought I’d be done coughing soon.  A few minutes later, not done coughing, I decided to go downstairs and sleep on the couch.  That’s not a terrible thing for me- I’m fond of sleeping on the couch.  Bruce followed me down a moment later and got under the blanket with me and Harvey came down too, plopping down …

Pistachio is Healthy

If you keep up with things on this website you might remember how I mentioned yesterday that Amanda and I got very little sleep the night before.  Here’s the reason why.  Amanda had discovered some spotting in the afternoon.  Nothing heavy, and not too alarming in and of itself, but later that night Amanda said she seemed to feel the kinds of cramps that normally would say that her time of the month was coming.  You put spotting and cramps together this far into the pregnancy and you might have some cause for concern. Amanda called the doctor then (at 3:00 in the morning) and was told that it was probably nothing, but to call on Monday and schedule an …

Pregnancy, Week 15

This week, little Pistachio should be about four and a half inches and weigh two or three ounces.  The eyes and eyes have moved to their proper places and there’s a lot of movement.  The eyes are moving, the baby is stretching and flexing and can move its fingers.  It may even be sucking its thumb.  It’s also making breathing motions.

Boston Legal Finale

I’m sick today.  I started feeling it last night, but it’s definitely here now.  It’s pretty much just a sore throat, but my throat seems to dry up and I start coughing if I speak more than a few sentences at a time.  What really sucks about this is that I had several good sales leads today, and it’s nearly impossible to describe the web design process or go into details about search engine optimization if your voice seizes up and you start hacking every few sentences. Amanda was very nice about it and made me a grilled cheese sandwich as soon as she got home.  She pointed out that she can take care of me, too. Apparently Bruce and …
