today

Today I woke up feeling awful. Unhappy insides, sore throat, no voice and a sinus ick of some kind. I still figured I should go to work, until I heard the traffic and weather reports. And Zil told me to stay home. So, I worked from home today, and was probably more useful than if I had stayed home.

On the down side, I skipped the gym, though I managed to eat fairly sanely. The chest freezer is starting to pay off when I had to toss the first dish of leftovers from the fridge because on closer inspection, the smell was *not* garlic. The freezer thankfully had some older frozen leftovers that were quite edible.

I'm also very glad that neeuqdrazil stashed home-made ginger syrup in the fridge, right next to the lemon juice.

You take a lot of sliced ginger, drop it in water with a bunch of sugar, simmer on low until it's dark, spicy and syrupy. Toss into a jar, and you're ready to go for all emergency ginger needs.

omg...ginger syrup...omg

/brainstorm/

betcha that would freeze beautifully in ice cube trays, ready for the inevitable Day of Ick that saps all will to move (and therefore usually removes one's ability to make ginger tea to cure the ailment)

(not that I'm speaking from current experience or anything...)

Heck, with that amount of sugar in it freezing it might give you ginger sorbet.
