Move Aside, WebMD

I went to speak to my real MD. He said I have a viral infection, and prescribed medication and rest. In addition to the prescription stuff, he's having me take Mucinex DM, an over-the-counter medication that has me coughing up every bit of mucus that I have ever secreted in my life.

Seriously, it's disgusting. It's like Charles Dickens' phlegmy masterpiece, "Great Expectorations."

If it weren't for all the Simpsons DVDs and my Nintendo DS, I would have gone stir crazy three days ago. Still, playing Nintendo can be a mixed blessing -- one of my games, Brain Age, says I have the mental capabilities of an octogenarian.
