<p>I went to the doctor today (first time in over a decade) because I've had this chest cold that I just could not kick. Sure enough, I've got <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acute_bronchitis">bronchitis</a>. Fucking bronchitis. (<em>Asshole</em>). I've already missed a couple days of work.</p>

<p>And now I'll have to miss a couple more now. And I really don't want to. This wave at work is kind of time intensive for me. I have 3 things to do that are 1) easy and short, 2) a little harder but in an area I feel good about exploring, but still relatively short and 3) long and in a domain where I flounder.</p>

<p>After the end of this wave is when I start my big trip to New Zealand / Australia / Hawaii. So, I really want to tie up all lose ends before I go and not have to worry about anything back home from the road.</p>

<p>I guess I just have to keep my head down and power through.</p>

<p>Oh, yeah. I stocked up on soup &amp; crackers, Mega-Antioxidant juice, raisin bran and I happened to get some comics in the mail. Swirl all those together with a dash of some spicy food with a side order of a couple hot baths and you should get one healthy me at the end of the weekend or so.</p>

<p>I really hate being sick.</p>
