Yaaay, I'm home! And not puking anymore! \o/

This has not been the best week ever. Don't get me wrong, the food has been FANTASTIC as the food always is in The Big Apple, and I quite enjoy our trade show since it's such a nice chance to actually see our customers face-to-face. The guy in the booth across from us said with wonder in his voice, "Wow, I've never seen so many people hug at a trade show before!" (We have some very sweet and loyal customers. It's one of the many reasons I actually stick with my not-terribly-remunerative job.)

HOWEVER. The hotel room kind of sucked. Aside from the night we came back and it smelled like someone had been smoking in there (not. cool.), I got bitten by - you guessed it - bed bugs. I laughed rather than cried since at least this year I know what to do and have all the gear to heat-treat my luggage as soon as I got home, so it was annoying but hardly world-ending. And I'd had the wherewithall to bring a couple of giant suitcase-enclosing industrial bags to boot, so I'd already been keeping my bag isolated in it just in case. Sometimes, it seems, paranoia pays off!

So got home on the bus yesterday morning...and my body promptly said FUCK YOU such that I spent the whole day curled up on the couch or on my knees in front of the toilet. Yeeeah. No, I don't know what happened either. I think it was just my body getting back at me for weeks of treating it like shit. Which I had coming, so fair enough. I'm just glad I'm feeling better today!

Also, my TV ARRIVED OMG but it's too big for me to lift out of the box on my own (yeah, I hear you snickering out there!) so I'll have to wait until I can snag a neighbour or [ profile] neeuqdrazil shows up tonight.

So that's where I stand. I still haven't seen the SPN finale - and remain unspoiled because y'all have been so good about cutting for spoilers, which I really appreciate - and am really looking forward to the LOST finale on Sunday too. And a holiday Monday, wheee! :D Life is good.
