Not much [Mar. 26th, 2014|10:17 pm]
Beemer
Not much to say lately. The cold is definitely (finally) done with, but the cough lingers on. Every morning I wake up and it's a little bit better, but never quite all the way.

One interesting side-effect is that I've pretty much stopped drinking soda, because the carbonation is unappealing to my tender throat. I've been drinking lots of milk instead.

Umm... I got a haircut I'm quite happy with last weekend.

And I finished the first draft of my paper today. It's about 300 words too long, but I need somebody else to read it to tell me which bits are extraneous.

Actually... anybody out there wanna read my paper and tell me if it makes any sense at all to a layperson? I'm not sure that I would expect it to, but it's an interesting question.

If your throat is tender, try drinking Traditional Medicinals' brand, "Throat Coat" tea. Despite the dirty-sounding name, it'll soothe a raw throat and help bring your voice back. I was introduced to it many years by both a vocal teacher and a square dance calling coach.

the cough from the cold out there lingers for ages. Thankfully I'm down to just a tickle at this point but it's still annoying.

Oh, MAN! I was picking up cough drops the other day and an old lady in the medicine aisle said to me "You have that awful cough, don't you? It just lasts and lasts." I agreed. And then I coughed.

I'd love to read your paper, and I'll give you a comprehension evaluation if you like. My e-mail is in my profile if you don't have it.

Feel free to send your paper my way if you'd like - not sure what I can offer, but I'd be interested what your research looks like.

That's a sound reason not to.
