I saw this interesting story today on msn.com about a man who'd been trapped in an elevator for 41 hours!

The video itself is pretty interesting, but what is even more interesting (to me at least) is the [url=http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2008/04/21/080421fa_fact_paumgarten?currentPage=all]New Yorker[/url] article. The article talks about the psychology of elevators and about the history of them, along with giving a lot more details on the man who'd been trapped for 41 hours.

I found it just fascinating and thought y'all might too.

It seems as though I'm sick again. I was really hoping to not have to have another doctor copay or meds copay this month . . but it looks likely that I'll have both. A few weeks ago I was dxd with an ear infection and a sinus infection and given antibiotics. I thought I was on the mend, so started back on my exercise program once I finished the antibiotics.

Sunday I started coughing. Monday after work when my PT Eric heard me cough, he bluntly told me that he didn't want me to do cardio for at least a couple days. Today, even with dosing myself with Dayquill, I sounded like a wounded Seal (according to one of my coworkers.)

So, I'm off to the doctor tomorrow morning.

I just hope that I'll be over whatever this is in time for the 5k on May 3rd. I may have to walk most of it even if I am, seeing as though most of April has been a loss as far as training goes.

Oh yeah - the budget? It's in sad, sad shape right now. Groceries is out of the roof -- and after tomorrow, medical will be out there as well.

And theres still 9 days of April to go.

    Yeah, I saw the elevator video before, and thought it was amazing. 41 hours is it? That's nearly 4 days before he got out. Amazing.

    But yeah, hope you feel better soon!
