So, back on Saturday evening or so, I developed a really horrible cough. It made it a little harder to sleep, mucus from allergies clogging me up. Allergy medication and a liberal supply of cough drops kept me mostly intact, and I assumed that when I got home it would be cleared up. It's not. The allergies are still going strong, enough so that I feel like I'm coughing up a lung now that I'm out of cough drops. Ugh. Coughing up a seemingly endless supply of mucus is not what I would call fun.
On the plus side, I finished reading Carol Berg's fantasy trilogy (Transformation, Revelation and Restoration), and while I found the plot 'twist' in the third book unsurprising given what had been built up to that point (and in fact was silently berating the protagonist for NOT seeing the twist upcoming), it was still a really good trilogy. I strongly recommend it to anyone who likes stories about how fact can become twisted into mythology and religion, among other fun elements.
