Due to being oncall for two local emergency rooms last night, after Friday night services at one of our friend's homes I went home to rest. forestcats went to a party by timmy_ritz, seeing several LJ pals there, but I couldn't be that far out of the Inland Empire. I pulled out a Netflix film that I suspect wouldn't be to forestcats taste, called We Were Soldiers, about the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, one of the units of Airmobile troops in Vietnam, and their first conflict against North Vietnamese regulars. I thought it was a surprisingly balanced piece of work, though it's realism was a bit iffy. I'm glad I didn't spend $20 taking my wife to it, but I'm not unhappy to have seen it through as a Netflix rental/rotation.

Dungeonmaster tonight! I hope I'll be able to get a nap this afternoon, as I didn't sleep well with the various phone calls until about 3AM, or until about 3 hours before I got up. We'll see.

I'm coughing less, though when I do cough, it's just as troubling. Still, I guess I'm getting better.

It is raining. Fooey.
