Cold Hearted

Remember the good old days, when being sick meant a day off from work, watching bad daytime television curled up on the sofa? The internet, cell phones and broadband have changed that day of rest forever.

I've been fighting a cold for the past couple of days. I couldn't sleep, so I got up at four this morning, e-mailed my boss that I was working from home today, and finished a project in record time (without the usual office distractions).

Any suggestions to fighting a cold? I'm using chicken soup, megadoses of vitamin C, lots of water, orange juice, hot green tea, and 69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields. All suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Of course, the worst part of my cold is that I'll miss smog at The Nick in Birmingham tonight... maybe someone will leave a miracle cure in the comments.
