In other news:

Good news - attended a Build St. Louis social last night, and met a few potential consulting clients, as well as just basic schmoozing.

Bad news - this morning, I woke up with a bad cold. Feel icky. Getting plenty of sleep, and drinking plenty of fluids.

Thankfully, I have sweatpants, a humidifier, and plenty of DVDs to keep me entertained.
