i hate being sick

August 3, 2005

I’m out sick today and hate having to sit still and drink my water. I did make some killer “medicine”-noodle soup. The medicine part, is taking a lot of sauteed garlic and red pepper and dark chili powder and mixing it with chicken broth and nice noodles and a little olive oil and chicken chunks. I’ve ate like 3 bowls and my sore throat is gone and I feel much better too. I don’t feel great, but enough that I should be able to head into work tomorrow…instead of fielding calls and e-mails through my blackberry.

I think that’s one of the things that I actually like about my job. I’m always connected to email and the phone and if I’m sick, the VPN is great for taking a quick look at servers and the occasional desktop. All that coupled with a nice laptop is probably one of the best setups I’ve ever had at a job. I don’t think I would change a thing about that arrangement.

I think I’ve worked on about 5 calls today and spend some time eating soup and working with my boss on getting a server working or at least getting him the Compaq (HP, whatever) info. I might not have been in the office, but I’m getting paid for doing my job.

I’ll probably rest a little more and hopefully the calls will calm down until tomorrow am….knock on wood.
