Feeling better (215.2)

OK, so I guess I need to focus much more on losing weight for a few weeks. Two bachelor parties and a big wedding and lots of beer have been bad for my weight, and the beer also seems to have generated a gout recurrence.

I've been trying to be relatively careful about what and how much I eat when I take advantage of the $6 lunches for staff at the all-you-care-to-eat dining units, but I'm sure I'm eating too much every time I go to one. At least I'm always eating a huge salad as part of that.

The cold from Dragon*Con has faded, though. I mostly haven't needed to take Sudafed or use nasal decongestant spray since the weekend. I definitely need more sleep, but it's not gonna be this weekend, Homecoming, or next, Watkins Glen Weekend.

Phil is out of the hospital! I guess I never got around to the "another post" about why I was guest-hosting BFG, but a little over a week after not-completely-successful surgery to remove a brain tumor, Phil has been released and is recovering at home. He probably misses the nice Wi-Fi at the hospital, since they've got nothing but dialup available to them at home in the boonies. He actually got to the show in a wheelchair on Sunday night. It was great to see him, but I think I'll be guest-hosting for another few weeks at least.
