I'm not doing a very good job of nursing this cold. I had no vitamin C, zinc lozenges, or echinacea in stock before yesterday. The only chicken soup I've had is an order of Tom Yum Gai last night. And I can't find my ginger tea anywhere. Of course, I really should be asleep right now getting a good night's rest as well; however, I'm just not at all sleepy, with this itchy, runny nose demanding my attention. Hopefully the chamomile tea, which is subbing in for the missing ginger tea, will help induce drowsiness.


I walked into the Men's Wearhouse today to buy a jacket to wear with my Hugo Boss pants at my audition next week. Problem is, the pants are a charcoal grey and have a soft, fuzzy texture. There were only a few jackets that complemented the color and none the texture. Instead of spending $100 or so on a nice jacket, I bought a $320 suit. But at least now I have a decent basic black suit. Of course, now I have to buy new shoes to go with the suit.


During Lent, the church I like to go to often sings parts of the Mass in Latin or Greek. I.e., instead of singing "Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy," we sing "Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison." Likewise, "Lamb of God, You take away the Sins of the world, have mercy on us" becomes "Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis." So my head must really have been in a fog last night: on the third repetition of the "Lamb of God," where "Grant us peace" replaces "Have mercy on us," instead of "Dona nobis pacem" I almost sang "Dona eis requiem!"

Chamomile / manzanilla calms you more than it makes you drowsy. Usually the calming is enough, though those who need more go to valerian. I'm not sure what to do to make you sleep, apart from one of the opiates.
