Head colds suck, Laptops rock

I'm so done with sleeping. I've slept an average of 14 hours every day for the last 4 days and I'm really so over it. I'm starting to get headaches because I'm sleeping so much... I never thought I'd say that.

Somewhere in the last week, I caught a head cold. I keep thinking I'm getting better and then another loopdy-loop comes and I'm simply unprepared for how fatigued I become. If this is anything like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, I should be thankful I do not have it.

Having said all that, laptops are the bomb—I recently purchased a MacBook and, without even getting out of bed, I've been able to browse CNN, check my email, review Myspace, blog, and even watch movies. Best of all, I've been able to write my screenplay wherever I wish!

Given that magnets have always been the arch-nemesis of hard drives, I feel I must give a shout out to the Apple boys for including a magnet on the lip to make it close easier, and a magnetized AC plug to prevent your laptop skittering away when some poor soul trips on your AC cable. (As fate would have it, I just watched my cat unsuccessfully jump to our 1 inch windowsill... and when she fell back down, she landed square on my AC cable while my laptop stayed neatly in place. Come on—that's cool!)

Drugs for this morning:
* 4 Ibuprofin
* 2 Tylenol
* 1 DayQuil
* 2 Halls cough drops
