Today Begins With More Not-So-Good

The front that blew through last night is either playing hell with my allergies or heralding a head cold.  I don't know which, but neither one is a Good Thing.

As a result of waking up feeling lousy, I ended up drifting back off to sleep after Jane left for work and overslept a bit.  Given how lousy I felt, it took me until 9 to get out the door.  In the grand scheme of things, not a big deal really, since I managed to avoid rush hour, but it still meant I'd be running late.

Then, my left rear tire blew on the freeway.  I managed to keep the car under control and get off the road, but it meant a rather harrowing tire change on the shoulder (the nearest actual exit was two miles away).  Not fun.  Not even a little bit.

My head feels like it's full of concrete.  My nerves are jangly and I'm feeling a serious adrenaline hangover.  And now, I've got to go buy a tire.

It's a frabjous effin' day, lemme tell ya.

Feeling a bit better now.  It may be the medicine, it may have been the pho I had for dinner.  From the yellowish dust all over everything outdoors, my guess is this is just allergies rather than a cold.

The tire could not be repaired, as it had three nail holes in it.  It was really too late to have the shop take care of it this afternoon (they were very busy), so I'm going to be there when they open tomorrow.  Hopefully, we can get it done in time for me to get to work by 9:30 or so.

I'm going to make a short evening of it tonight, so I'll do the promised gaming post tomorrow.
