Felt quite rough yesterday. Apparently Mikey had some ‘flu-like symptoms after the other night so I think I might have picked up a bit of that, but so far am surviving it without too much pathos.

Had a reasonably productive day at work; another graduate lunch was the only remarkable event though and even that wasn’t as useful as the previous ones. Left work a bit early but had a reasonable, if leisurely, ride home. Lazed on the sofa all night reading.

Pretty disgusted with Israel these days but impressed with the survival of the US Airways jet that came down in the Hudson. I don’t recall a commercial jet that has successfully crash-landed on water before and there has always been a question about even the possibility of success. Probably the low speed of this incident would have helped the landing and survivability. All kudos to the pilot though for achieving it!
