Still feeling crappy, but worlds better than this morning. Now I just wish I could get some sleep. Times like these make me hope for cannabis legalization soon.

At a house party? If so, did friends/relatives get sick? Who's the culprit that made the canned salmon mousse?

It was a house party but I don't think anyone else got sick, that I know of anyways. The girl I was with said she was a bit sick, but she was drinking pretty heavily, lol. I had one of those "pinwheel" things towards the end of the game that had been sitting out the whole time... Pretty sure that's what did it.

Back to work today, although several times I didn't think I'd make it until 4:30-5. But this was the first day my condition has actually improved since I first got sick on Saturday.

On a side note, do any over-the-counter drugs actually do anything, or am I just unlucky? Aleve helps with my knee pain a little bit, but other than that I can't think of a single instance where any other non-prescription drugs have ever helped me for anything.

Consider buying a data transfer cable for about $25-30... as long as both computers run you can transfer all your files, settings etc. from your old to new pc. Belkin makes a decent one that can be found in most stores.

Finally back to feeling 100%. Just got back from taking care of the adoption kitties. Like 6 got adopted in the past week. It is horrible out weather there. Supposedly we're going to get 8 inches tonight or something. Now it's just slush.. and having a RWD car with an open differential and more low-end torque than 205 size tires can handle made it ROUGH.

Looking out the window of my apartment at the building across the road...

Whole bunch of cops in flak vests and toting MP5 submachine guns were standing at the front door of the other building when I got home. Two cops wanted in to my building to go up a few floors to get an observation spot.

No shooting yet. Can't see anything exciting.

OMG. Boss restarted a very important service about five minutes before I left for the day. Reading my e-mail, it looks like it did not go as planned.

Bahaha, good thing I got today off early, else I'd be super busy answering calls.

That's crazy. Keep us updated.

I decided to stay up all night to wait for my good buddy to get out of the night shift at 6am. For some reason, even though we're at least half a decade into official adulthood, it almost feels mischievous to get together that early.
