Okay, I've finished at least scanning the past few days of livejournal. I also deleted all the spam from my inbox. left after that process was some AWC Gala mail that wasn't caught by my AWC Gala filter (and other group or list mail that was sorted out by various filters into other mailboxes), and an email from Erica S. to a group of us saying that she's now living in Washington DC and here's her address. No personal mail at all. Oh well.

Time to lie down in my fuzzy slipper socks and fuzzy shirt and see if I can doze without coughing or sneezing.

--I got in a really scary sneezing fit on the freeway on my drive home today. Every time you sneeze, you shut your eyes. That doesn't seem good at 75 miles per hour. The guys at the CARE station at the rest stop (a michigan thing where they serve free snacks on the holiday to encourage people to take a break from the road) said that sneezing makes all the muscles in your body contract, including your heart, so in a way it makes your heart stop. That wasn't really comforting.

not only did the sneezing fit scare me and run me out of kleenex, it also distracted me past the turnoff for 696, which I didn't realize until much later when it finally sunk in that I had passed 10 mile and 9 mile and was still on I-94. That worked to take me home anyway, and the traffic was quite reasonable, but I thought it funny that I didn't even notice missing that exit.

I made sure to occassionally massage my nose and sinuses and especially to press my upper lip under my nose to keep from doing any further sneezing on the last leg home.
