In a small, but significant, amount of pain

The worse thing about having a cold isn't the sniffles. Or my nose running and needing to be blown repeatedly. Or even the intermittent coughing that can get in the way of falling asleep.

The worst bit is what happens when my nose runs _backward_ and I end up with snot going down the back of my throat and into my stomach, and inevitably an upset stomach. Which has been painful for most of the day, and noisy for even more of it.

In-between the pain, however, we have managed to go out for breakfast, to the Game Masters exhibition at the museum of Scotland*, pick up paint from Homebase so we can get the bathroom painted, and then play some Pillars of Eternity (which is really good, any you really ought to be playing if you have any fond memories of Baldur's Gate of Planescape: Torment).

Now in bed, reading Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, which I am about halfway caught up to the point I'd read to when I first encountered it. Soon Julie will finish watching TV, I'll read her a couple of chapters of Flex, and then I will sleep badly and hopefully wake up feeling more like a human and less like a snot-production machine.

Oh, as a reminder Delicious is currently migrating its servers. So no link posts until they get everything up and running again. Hopefully I'll wake up tomorrow to find it's all running again. No promises though...

*Interesting, but not as good as it could have been. But then I suspect that I already know far too much about the history of games to get much more than nostalgia out of seeing all of the games.
