I haz it.
Actually, it might only be allergies, as a LOT of dust was kicked up yesterday in the white tornado that went through this level, but whatever the cause, my sinuses are inflamed, swollen and generally sulky. I think steaming them has helped a little bit, but, gah.
The worst bit is that I didn't get a good night of sleep because they were so upset. Had to raise my head every couple of hours to blow or wipe my nose. And move to a different part of the pillow. (Blech.)
Geoff is off on a week-long business road-trip after lunch today. First stop is Pittsburgh, then on to Buffalo. At the same time, Page will be going through sugar-withdrawal, as his last dose of sugar-bomb antibiotics was yesterday morning. And to try and heal the damage that was done (and there was damage done - underwear and behavior charts attest to that), I will not be buying any more fruit for a week or two. Poor boy. Fortunately, he likes cheese, nuts and sausage. And yogurt.
Meanwhile, I've made progress on my first term paper, although I'll probably have to rewrite it all as I've taken a slightly mocking/snarky tone. Hard not to, though.
FASB (USA): Oh, we are so into the idea of one reporting standard for the whole world!
IASB (Europe et al): GREAT! So let's get it together, baby. Come on over to our place.
FASB: Uh... noooo? Your place is... not up to our standards. How 'bout you come over to ours?
IASB: Um, no. See, you're kinda late to the party, and everyone else is already over here.
FASB: But, well, your party sucks.
IASB: Oh really?
FASB: Um, yeah. And, like, our research proves it.
IASB: Oh, really
FASB: But we still want to get together... But later, Babe. I needs to do some stuff first.
IASB: ... *mutters* fucking tease.
Anyway, there are colorful metaphors and phrasing that I should probably get rid of ("The problem was, the entire process became one sticky point after another, which, in turn, slowed their progress considerably. However, even with everything moving as fast as molasses in January, the two boards managed to make progress toward agreeing on a path to take. Kind of."), but, well, it's a first draft. Words on a page is what's needed right now. I can edit later.
Speaking of, I should get down to that now. I'm starting to run out of time, and I have yet to start the research for my second term paper. *meeps*
But, before I do go, I'll share something I enjoyed. Geoff and I have been taking advantage of another free trial on netflix and have taken to watching Once Upon A Time
. While there are some things that really bug me about it (does it have
to be the Disney version of the characters, every single time?), I've been enjoying the complexity they're creating in the fairytale land. Happily ever afters exist, but at a price. Always a price. Last night was especially enjoyable, what with Little Red Riding Hood's story being rather twisty, AND a take on Beauty and the Beast. God, I love me a good Beauty and the Beast story, and that one was an excellent
version of it. ( Spoilerish for first season )
Despite those episodes, I think what keeps me most enthralled at this point is wondering whether Regina actually does love Henry or not. It's really not clear whether she's capable of loving anymore.
But now I'd better go. I only have a couple of hours before the guys get back, and I have lots to do after that.
