The following blog takes place between 9:15am and 3:15pm.
1. Yesterday my boss sent me home early because I think he thought I was dying. My cough was pretty terrible. I was supposed to go to see Falstaff with Emily but I cancelled because not only did I feel lousy but felt that whoever was sitting next to me who’d have actually paid upwards of $150 to see the opera probably wouldn’t be too happy with me coughing in their ears for three hours.
2. I stayed home sick today and spent the day watching the first 8 episodes of 24. I started at 9:15 and finished them by 3:15. I really can’t take Dennis Haysbert as president because no matter what he says I translate it to “blah blah blah switch to Allstate.” Now I am attempting to finish the last six episodes of Joan of Arcadia before bedtime (with, of course, a break for American Idol). After “commercial breaks” Joan of Arcadia doesn’t tell you how much time is left in the episode like 24 does. That annoys me.
