irritated, sick

Thank Goodness for Nurse Dog

I feel like I've got monkeys with hot coals for feet running inside my sinus passages. Combined with having stayed up into the wee hours doing extra transcription work, I'm feeling very discombobulated.

Fortunately, I've got my doggie, Una, who has been tending to me in her doggie way: giving me concerned looks and occasionally licking my face as I lie in bed, tossing and turning.

On an unrelated subject, does anyone know anything about TiVo or DVR devices? I've been using VHS tapes to time-shift my favorite shows, but I can't watch them in my office, where the TV/VCR combo is now just a TV with a vestigial VHS slot. I'd love to have something I could use upstairs, either with this TV or with an inexpensive new one (since I figure that's way cheaper than buying a laptop).
