Things My Head Is Full Of for $400, Alex  
- .NET and C#. This week I had an all-week, all-day class on "Mastering the .NET Framework with C#". It was a tremendous amount of information to have to try to process. I'm not sure I'll use everything I learned, or even remember all of it, but I think the information is in the brain somewhere. There's a couple more labs to finish off, so I'll get those done this weekend because otherwise I'll never do them. Future experiences developing code with .NET and C# will hopefully trigger a reaction like "oh yeah, we talked about that in class." But for now, it's still a bit of a massive muddle.

- Massive, unrelenting congestion. This is a leftover from the cold I had a couple weeks ago. The gigantic sinus congestion and hacky cough still linger to this day. Sudafed barely keeps the congestion at bay and if I miss a dose then, hooooo baby, it gets nasty. It might be time to go see the doctor about this one.

- Math contest things. Now that the "math contest season" is winding down, along with my coaching of the middle school team, I'm starting to think about next year. I think I just might run a couple open area-wide contests next school year, so I'm running through the mental thought experiments on how it would work.

- Norwescon. Norwescon is in three weeks! I don't know my full schedule yet, but I should start planning for panels I asked for. This means brushing up on Ancient Computers, Robots, and LOST. I also need to begin the planning and organizational process for the Science Fiction Spelling Bee. Part of this entails asking people who are much wittier than me for contributions to the cause.

- Writing. In all these other activities, writing has not been forsaken. But it has taken a back seat recently. I sent in an entry to the latest Byzarium Flash Fiction Contest, I'm keeping other stories in circulation, and I'm thinking about a homework assignment. I'm also trying to get back to the "revise and submit" of ye olde desk stories that have been lingering around forever. It's time to get those stories out into the world, and let them find their way.

I had a cold in January. After the usual 7-14 days, the cold was gone but I had this lingering congestion. Finally went to the doctor and got antibiotic for a sinus infection. That didn't quite clear it up. Now they say they've been seeing people who also had a viral sinus component -- Mucinex and Sudafed.

I have a feeling I could be in sinus infection territory. Mucinex is something I've never tried before. I'll have to look into it.

The head cold that won't die is nasty. Though I'm over it, I can't laugh without choking, coughing, wheezing for a few minutes afterward.

You, my dear, probably have a sinus infection. GO TO A DOCTOR...oh wait...your wife IS a doctor. :-P You're such a man.

Actually, Dr. Wife said "Hmmm, if your congestion doesn't clear up in 2 weeks of Sudafed, then it's probably a sinus infection and you should go see your doctor."

So, I'm following her advice! I am!
