I had big plans for Labor Day.
Despite the great advice I shared two days ago, I was going to work the day away.
My ears had different plans.
I had a slight cough yesterday — so slight that I thought it was a reaction to something in the air — but in the middle of the night, I woke up slightly disoriented with chills and fever.
I took some meds for the fever, but it was even higher this morning and my head hurt, so off I went to urgent treatment.
The diagnosis: an ear infection. My ears were ‘as red as the chairs in reception.’ (They were pretty darn red.)
I got a big ol’ bag full of drugs, and have been parked on the couch all day, trying to get my fever down and my spirits up because I feel like crap.
And I didn’t get a lick of work done.
I also appear to have called my boyfriend at 2:45am. For his sake, I hope that was a quick hang-up that he didn’t hear.
(Sorry about that.)

Hey New York City jazz fans, a word of warning —
If you love Chris Botti and are hoping to catch one of his shows at the Blue Note during his annual holiday residency, here are a few things to keep in mind.
First, don’t buy bar seats. The club offers seats at tables and at the bar, and the marketing assures you that both choices offer a great view of the stage.
In reality, there are about 10 bar seats in total, and the Blue Note sells five times that many advance tickets. So most bar seat ticket holders are essentially Standing Room Only.
Second, don’t assume you are in like Flynn if you buy table seats. At tonight’s Christmas Eve performance, many table patrons with advance tickets were turned away because the Blue Note oversold the show.
On Christmas Eve. Are you kidding me?!
Third, whatever ticket you purchase, be at the club as soon as the doors open. That’s the only way to get any kind of seat.
Actually, my best piece of advice is to go somewhere else. That’s what we ended up doing.
Total. Holiday. Fail.
