Remember that cold I caught last week? Yeah, it lasted all through this week. More specifically, I think the cold finished up on Thursday and turned into a sinus infection just in time for my flight to Denver. Then I was sick through my entire trip to Colorado; yes, travelling while ill is still absolutely miserable.
Since then, I've been taking it easy, hoping to recover in time for the upcoming trip to Virginia Beach. At this point, I feel fine *except* for these horrible coughing fits I get when I try to sleep. But night by night, those coughing fits are getting progressively less severe; hopefully I'll be cough-free by Friday.
If so, then it's off to Virginia Beach for a weekend of dancing. If not, then I stay home and spend the weekend bitterly not-dancing. In any case, real life -- occasionally wandering off to do improv or dancing but otherwise staying home and fiddling with artsy stuff -- should resume this coming week, and things should stay quiet & settled 'til November.
The game "Blind Man's Bluff" was originally known as "Blind Man's Buff" in England. "Buff" in this context means "a small push" (c. f. the verb "buffet"), since players tend to get pushed around a bit.
