I felt a lot better yesterday, but I still ran out of steam at about 3 and went home early. I can feel slightly virtuous about this because we found out on Monday at our staff meeting that PTO gets paid out of an institution-wide pool instead of the divisional budget, so it's actually good for our (local) budget if you take time off.

Aside: We also found out that the budget this year is kinda grim (NSF funding is down by a couple percent), but funding will be flat the next couple years and so things will be better. Institution-wide, there are going to be some cuts this year, but my division is probably one of the safest places to be. So not great news, but it could be worse. I'm not fretting.

We went over to the Joneses' last night and said hi and played Munchkin Bites. I got to use the Special Bookmark™ that SJGames sent with something we ordered. Jerry won, and while I could have stopped him, I didn't, because, frankly, I wasn't going to win, and I'd rather not sleep on the couch for someone else's victory.

Throat's still sore, lymph nodes enormous. Achy and tired. If you are given the option to catch this bug, I recommend that you give it a pass.
