You Win Some, You Lose Some

Win: The third chapter of La Dissertation is written in first draft! Yay! I went on kind of a feeding frenzy to do it -- if you look closely, you can see little bits of blood and knowledge sticking to my teeth -- and just chewed right through it. Now I've got a whole month and a bit to work on my Tave fellowship application. The Tave is a teaching fellowship, so I'm going to submit a course about Women in Sacred Music. Hildegard von Bingen will be there, of course, along with various gospel singers and of course my beloved women cantors. Who else might you want to learn about, if you were taking this course?

Lose: I will not come down with a cold. I will not come down with a cold. I will not come down with a cold . . .

Amazingly enough, I think the cold virus heard you! It certainly seems to be retreating.

Have to agree with [Unknown LJ tag]. That would be a fun course to take. Or audit, in my case. I'm too lazy to write papers anymore.

I've advanced from my crockpot cravings to soup season, and soup should be good for fighting colds. There's always the classic chicken soup, but how about something spicy? I had a bean soup tonight with an impressive amount of chili powder.

I did put some hot sauce on scrambled eggs the other night, and that was good. The other thing I like when I've got a really awful cold is to call up this local pan-Asian place and have them deliver two big orders of pho. That'll last me a few days, and it's light and tasty and somehow, the spicing in this place's broth is exactly the thing for a cold.

Fortunately, this cold didn't get bad enough for that. I think it's going away as quietly as it threatened to come.

Now that you mention it, I recall your pho cure from last yea.

Glad that the cold didn't get a good grip onyou.

And, hey, if it does come back, I'm armed and ready with the number for pho delivery!
