Out of the Blue

Hopefully the crickets have not settled in too comfortably around here, as the holiday quiet season will presumably (make that hopefully, <chirp> <chirp>) conclude after today.

I had similar success using that Zicam zinc nasal spray dealie to help quash the cold symptoms I started feeling yesterday, but who knows whether I'm just succumbing to the placebo effect... especially in light of the articles dug up with Google that I've been reading about this homeopathic remedy. It turns out zinc remedies have their own set of controversies, ranging from claims that some zinc lozenges can actually worsen the common cold, to a lawsuit claiming that a single application of the nasal version resulted in a permanent loss of someone's sense of smell. Eeek!

Actually Zoolander changed my life. As a child, I attended the Derek Zoolander School For Children Who Want To Read Good. My Parole Officer says I wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn't.
