under the windy weather

The hay fever I thought I had turned into a bit of a cold instead. I went to work, but avoided my co-workers. Today I may work from home for a good part of the day.

Last night I fell asleep before 8:30 p.m. and slept on and off until 7:25 a.m.
I originally got up at 1:30 a.m., thinking it was 7:30 a.m., and then realized my mistake. My last dream involved being on a very crowded airliner with a nephew half his current age sitting near the front, where the airline crew quoted costs for the in-flight movie that were so high that I must have been in the future. I was also uncertain that I had the right luggage with us. I am glad I woke up before take-off.

I walked at lunch in Breckinridge Park and briefly after work in Shawnee Park. Both times, chilly winds on basically a temperate day drove me indoors. For breakfast I had organic frosted flakes and skim milk. For lunch, I had broccoli, carrots, pineapple cubes, and two slices of pepperoni pizza buffet pizza. Our dinner featured a pork loin chop, a sweet potato, and salad.

Last night we watched an episode of Nature in which robotic creatures mimicked wildlife to try to enhance the nature footage. The show stressed how human the creatures were in some ways, but failed to stress the more interesting part about how differently from humans some creatures behave, and the advantages of this approach. I liked the show a great deal, though. I am waiting for a robotic paramecium to tour the euglena part of the creek someday, as micro-technology and drones improve. I don't expect the world of Fantastic Voyage, the 1966 film with a microscopic crew sailing the bloodstream, any time soon.
