Son of a ...  
The cold I had for like three weeks which kept getting better then coming back with a vengeance? Is back. I think. My throat is killing me today, I can hardly swallow and my head's all kablooie... I'm going to drool over meet Sean Maher at the weekend! I can't be sick!!


The workshop yesterday wasn't as bad as I feared, even got some networking in (which seemed to make my boss a little jealous when she saw I was schmoozing with the head of the joint cataloguing project, heh!) but ultimately the part I was interested in was the last part and because someone else over-ran it was smooshed into a tiny 5 minute section with the guy talking in technical terms that flummoxed most of the attendees (I got most of what he saying up until the 'algorithms' part...) And I got home just after 7 so it wasn't the end of the world.

Plus, I made more icons - after saying that I'd posted something new every day so far, I kinda saw it as a challenge to make something worth posting and since I had the newest s2 promo pictures sitting on my harddrive, I opened Photoshop. *g*

Plus, fresleyforever was keeping me amused with text messages yesterday (I had my phone switched off during the workshop - hence the four hour gap between replies!) and at her prompting I'm possibly going to be following up the AtS/Supernatural crossover ficlet I wrote the other day. When I say possiby, I mean probably... actually, I mean almost definitely... ah screw it! *opens Word*

Huh... randomly I just moved my foot and the toe I stubbed about three hours ago is still sore. Great, bet that's going to bruise... (I should probably warn those of you meeting me at Cubed that I've been a little accident prone lately and have bruises and cuts all over me... The best one is the one on my arm - almost a perfect circle and a lovely shade of browny-purple... *g*)

Anyway, off I go to try to find something to soothe my throat and stop this thing in its tracks...

ETA update on the sore toe. I was a little concerned that it might actually have been broken so I've just checked. It's not broken, it's not bruised, it also has no nail left on it. *gah!*

I'm worried for you.

Worried because I'm apparently falling to pieces in front of you? :)

I've always been a little accident prone, I walk too fast, I try to get things done quicker than I need to, it's just that over the last little while I've been a bit too lethargic to do much so my 'injuries' have gone way down. The throat problem is either the cold coming back, or it's because I was running up the stairs in Edinburgh yesterday (Edinburgh's on a steep hill, so steep that stairs are often the only way to get up a street, I was running up them).

On the other hand, if the worry is because I seem to be being overly productive with fandom stuff lately, then... I'm kinda concerned about that too - in a good way!

The falling to pieces kind. You being productive isn't a problem.

And I can sympathise with the steep hill, since Lisbon isn't exactly on flat terrain either, so I've had my share of steep roads to walk.

*g* I wouldn't be worried, this is the norm for me. Honestly, when I was a kid I managed to avoid broken bones and the like but I made up for it with the sheer number of scraped knees and elbows and bruises... :)

Sorry about your cold! :o *hands you tissues*

And who cares if the productivity isn't going to last? Take advantage of it!

Eee re: your toe. ;.; I have sore toe problems too! I broke it once when I got in a wreck on my four wheeler - (the gas hung up so it was going at full speed and breaks would NOT work, then when it started going for the road I just jumped off of it) - and that kind of crushed the toenail, but not causing it to come off! It's just cracked. ;.; ;.; ;.; And then when I was a little girl, I was running through the house, stopped suddenly, and the same toe bent back abruptly - which caused the back of the toenail to break off, lift up, then slam into my flesh.

THAT fucking hurt. *shivers @ memory*

Ouch! That sounds damn painful!

Ack! I hope this illness finally goes away for good and all soon!

I'm actually feeling a little better - so it was either just a 24 hour bug thing or it's the AC in the office. :)
