Back to normal  
Our household is returning to normalcy. I was the only one spared--well, the dog, too--of the horrible stomach illness that Abby came down with. Jonothan scared the crap out of me when he vomited two of his bottles up. Switching up and giving him Pedialyte helped him immensely. That stuff, however, tastes horrible. Even the fruit flavored kind is pretty bad. Me and my curiosity.

After getting in to my office, I found out a couple of legs of our network were down, and our phone system were down. We had storms that were some big, with lightning to accompany them. There's a 60% chance of rain again today, so most likely that means that we will have issues tomorrow morning as well. We have a wireless tower that connects one side of our campus to the other side. Now, the base of this tower was built on plywood, and has since rotten out. So, as a result, we'll get somewhere between 25-75% packet loss on a really bad day. Always fun.

Netflix has become my new best friend, er, my new best entertainment source. I don't know what took me so long to come around, I mean I've only been debating it for about two years. I get a feeling that Rachel isn't going to like the service once she starts back to work, neither of us will have time to watch that many movies. I will have to wait and see.

To The 5 Boroughs is out today. Today is also pay day. Hmmm.

I'm very glad to know that you were spared the tummy pukey stuff. ick.
And I'm glad to hear that everyone is recovering nicely. : )

Yeah, the pukey stuff was blech, to put it mildly. Last time I got hit with something like that, I was in isolation for nearly a week, only getting the occasional drink, and eating nothing.

Curiosity killed the... monkey?
*smacks self* Sorry. Couldn't resist.

Glad everyone's getting better. Poor little Jonothan! Poor Rachel and Abby too, but he's the littlest. I'm glad he's okay - would've scared the crap out of me, too.
