Well, I've got a cold. This one seems to be intent on turning my head into a factory for the production of clear, runny snot.* One thing I have to tell you people about is this neti pot thing: it doesn't work. Or rather, it works, but only for about as long as it takes my sinuses to produce more snot, which is measured in seconds. (If you don't know what a neti pot is, Google exists.) If I weren't being colonized by microbes, it might make a decent alternative to occasional noseblowing, but it takes so much time that it probably wouldn't be worth it then, either.

On the unrelated up side, I made some kick ass soup today. In the interests of preserving fluid volume, I'm storing the potatoes and noodles in a separate container and combining them with the actual soup when it's time to eat. I think this is the right thing to do.
