Today is not only meant to be a work day, it is also a seminar for our division, held in conjunction with yesterday's PhD defense. I ought to be there, but when the alarm went off this morning I was feeling worse, so made the decision to call in sick. The PowerPoint for my talk is on the shared drive, so I sent a note to my colleagues asking them to do the talk and went back to sleep. 1.5 hrs later I woke up hungry, so now I am curled up on the recliner in the livingroom, watching beautiful thick fluffy snowflakes drift down and the drama unfurl at the bird feeder.

The one of the pair of magpies and the silver-bronze raven with the black wings keep challenging one another over whose turn it is to eat the seeds that have fallen to the ground, but the cute little birds don't care they ignore the big ones and keep taking advantage of the fact that they are little enough to land on the feeder itself to eat (and presumably knock seeds to the ground beneath, or why else would the bigger ones argue about rights to the ground beneath?).

I feel bad about missing the seninar, and suppose I could go in anyway, but if I am still contagious that doesn't sound very nice to my colleagues.
