Limited Duty This Week

I'm fighting some respiratory disease that's trying to make itself at home in my body, so I'll be on limited duty for the rest of this week.

UPDATE 2015/02/09: Almost But Not Quite
I was hoping to be back to 100% by now, but I'm not. On the up side I believe that I might actually survive this vicious microorganism. I'm taking it one day at a time, and will update here when something changes.

UPDATE 2015/02/10: Another Not Quite Kind Of Day

Improvement continues, some work may be accomplished, but I'm still nowhere near able to talk on the phone.

I wonder if it's possible to overdose on mentholated cough drops.

A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted,

"Excuse me, can you help me?

I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be in Information Technology," said the balloonist.

"I am," replied the woman, "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct but I've no idea what to make of your information and the fact is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

The woman below responded, "You must be in Management."

"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met but now, somehow, it's my fault."
