My Very own Rhino-thingy

A woman I highly respect has been known to say that we get sick during the winter not because there's more bugs running around, or because we're particularly weaker during the colder months. It's because we sit around inside all day, doing nothing, and that makes our immune systems weak/deficient. Which would explain why, as I sat at my computer during all my break, I was perfectly fine, but after two weeks back at school I caught a cold. Yes, that perfectly explains it. Got the sore throat on Monday afternoon, and got the sniffles while at school yesterday.

Last night I actually helped prepare my brother for some cosplay. Of course, he wouldn't call it cosplay, but that's essentially what it was. About a year ago, he became Link for the "blast from the past" dress-up day, and I made an extremely complicated piece for him: Link's sock hat. IT was so great, it even acted like the real thing. So today he was allowed to wear whatever, as long as it was red or pink, and so he became Link, albeit wearing the Goron tunic. Enter need for a new sock hat. The one last night took me less than 30 minutes, and that was with being dozed, dazed, and having a cold. I even got up early this morning so I could paint the Triforce on his hand, but he wasn't ready at the moment I got up, so I told him to call me when he was ready. I never heard his call, although he told me he called just a minute after I'd talked to him, and he called me four times. So I guess my score is 1 win, 1 fail. 50% isn't bad.

As I sit here not-working on my discussion, I thought this would be an opportune moment to get the pages for the website I'm supposed to be in charge of to be updated. Finished making up one of the picture pages, and the server is being wonky again. Not for any particular reason, I don't think, it just is doing that because it can. For once, it's not my fault!

I'm going to go take a shower now and hope the steam clears me out before I crash in bed.
