I called in sick today. Well, sent an email to my coworker and bosses, to be exact. I already felt bad yesterday, headache, sore throat and the usual symptoms of a cold. My coworker was scheduled to be in the office today as well, so the office wasn’t unmanned. And I even offered to work on some stuff from home, because honestly I could do most of my work from home, if I’ve got access to a computer with internet, word processing software and a telephone.
But no one called or wrote to give me a immediate assignment, so I spent most of my time in bed or in my comfy armchair, drinking tea and getting vitamine C. I also started watching Chicago Hope again, still got two seasons to go, although the sixth one isn’t supposed to be that good. I’ll wait and see. And my back / shoulder is bugging me as well at the moment. That sucks… . But I guess I’m complaining more than necessary, because I’m not really that sick, or sick at all. Just feeling off and blah.

My lecturers sent back my term paper, because the list of bibliography and references is lacking. Ouch! I have to admit I already knew that it might not meet the conditions even when I handed in the paper, but I so desperately wanted to just have it done. Now I have to revise it again. But on the hand I have to be grateful that I get the chance to revise it. They could have just let me fail because of that, I guess. I’ve got half of the revision done today and am planning to get the rest done tomorrow. I really have to start reading and working on the stuff for the next class.

It’s Grey’s Day! Yay! It will still take about 12 hours till I can see the season premiere, but that’s nothing compared to the four months I’ve waited for that. It didn’t feel that long by the way, not like it did the years before. Maybe because I wasn’t too worried about what the new season will bring for Meredith and Derek. I knew they will be together for good this time, so I didn’t have to worry a bit during the summer break. But now they are back and the spoilers and sneak peek got me really excited. If the writers will continue with the great writing of the second half of season for I’m sure it’s going to be a great premiere.
And I’ve got a new wallpaper. I found a high-res version of one of the cutest behind the scenes pictures and I just had to use it. The “story” behind it supposedely is, that Ellen was doing an interview and Paddy just walked by, smooched her and continued walking. *squee* I don’t know if the story is true, but the pic is cut either way.
