Ok, break's over
I'm back in the country, and I'm ready to start spewing some more right-wing hate speech, so stay tuned.
I got back home on Saturday. Then, yesterday, in addition to being subjected to my 39th birthday, I also was treated to a positive test for strep throat. [Borat] Happy times. [/Borat] I'm not sure which was more painful...
Actually, it was a fine birthday. I got lots of extra hugs and attention from my daughters, and we went out for a fun dinner last night at my favorite restaurant (Khan's Mongolian Barbeque -- yum!).
Even having strep isn't all bad. It gave me the excuse to work from home today (I'm not feeling bad -- just didn't want to "spread the love" to my coworkers). I got so much more done than I would have in the office! Really, it gave new meaning to "sick day" at work. And I'm starting to feel a little extra burst of energy, which hopefully means the antibiotics are starting to kick in.
Anyway, I'm back, so check in often for more, um, "insightful analysis."
