sick again!

I'm developing a suspicious correlation between getting sick at Christmas-time and going home for Christmas. Last year (2005 that is) I came down with a cold after arriving in NYC, and then when I came home I had some kind of stomach flu, which was really unpleasant. In 2003, as that first entry relates, I also fell sick after arriving in NYC and spent most of the week in bed. In 2004, however, when I did not go home, I don't recall being sick at all, at least not around Christmas.

Anyhow, this year I was fine all week back East, and even through the couple hours I spent at a New Year's Eve party I went to (friends of judaicdiablo), but after I got home I rapidly developed a congested nose, and today I've just been all stuffed up and feeling lousy. So I'm going to finish my dinner and head off to bed. Hopefully I won't have to start the new year at work by calling in sick.

Apparently, cold symptoms show up 1-2 days after exposure, so it's unlikely after all that I caught it on the flight; I probably got it from my friend Jeff's kids, when I visited him on Saturday.
