Lots of TV

I'd read about half the paper when the evening news finished at 7:30pm. I used the next 20 minutes to set up and then watch a DVD. When the DVD stopped, I taped two shows and watched one. I finished reading the paper while the 11pm news was on, and then watched the 90 minutes of taped TV. This brought me to 2:30am and after I cleared things up, I started reading in bed at 3:00am. I was too sleepy and went to sleep at 3:30am, waking up constantly coughing and blowing my nose. I got up at 10:30am and drank three glasses of hot water and that let me sleep until 2:30pm.

I was thinking I'd go get yesterday's and today's mail tomorrow, but I saw the mailtruck go by at 3:30pm so I headed out after I put my shoes on. I took the DVD to the post office, stopped at Wendy's to get a Pair 2 -- small salad (BLT Cobb) & small extra (chili) -- and got the mail on the way into the development. The only thing that didn't go into the mixed paper recycling basket was the new DVD. When I was opening my wallet at the Wendy's, I couldn't find my debit card. I was going to pay with cash, but I was a little worried about that card. I found it on the other side of the wallet when I got home. But that left an empty slot where my Kaiser card usually is. A careful look through showed it was behind the slots. I've never done that before, so I hope it's all related to the cold.

Mubarak's followers have been abducting, arresting, beating, etc. journalists.

Remember when Major Nidal Malik Hasan shot so many people at Fort Hood? The Senate Investigation says all of it could have been prevented if the FBI and Army had followed clues.
