Meanwhile, out in real life, P and I went over to the VA medical center to visit Rick. It turned out he'd been in there since early last week, having been laid low by a fairly serious cellulite infection, and he's still on the mend. They're giving him IV antibiotics and pain meds, since the leg in question is pretty screwed up and it still hurts him to walk. Aside from that he seems to be in good cheer and is looking forward to getting out of the hospital and back to business.
Tonight I'm being domestic - doing dishes, baking bread, cleaning out my in-box, and trying to get up to speed on the stuff that needs doing before the staff meeting on the 13th.
