Mr Kepple Has Been Unwell

RECENTLY, I received an e-mail from a friend which politely noted, "Your blog stands relatively barren these days -- I take it you're busy with ManchLife. How are things?" My friend's conclusion was quite correct -- I have been busy. I've also been sick as a dog.

Lately, I've been busy with work-related stuff, but over this past week I simply haven't felt all that well. There's been this awful cold/flu like ailment going around and I caught it. The bright side is that it's one of the few times I've gotten sick since I quit smoking; the down side is that my head is congested, and I've had a sore throat, and my body aches, etc.

The most notable thing to happen in my life lately is the Pittsburgh Steelers' victory over evil Denver in the AFC championship game. Now, the Steelers will go on to the Super Bowl to face Seattle. I have to admit that I've been kind of worried about posting word one about the Steelers, because of fear that I'll jinx them next Sunday. Then again, though, Bradshaw! did say on national television that the Steelers could beat either Carolina or Seattle, so if Bradshaw! can do it, so can I. It'll be Pittsburgh by a touchdown over the Seahawks. Aw yeah. Go Steelers!

As for my weekend plans coming up, I fear they're going to revolve around my continuing acquaintance with the NEW! Alka-Seltzer Plus Non-Drowsy Cold medicine (now in Citrus Blend flavor!). The stuff seems to work all right, but unfortunately, it has a lot of work ahead of it.
