Have you ever woken up in the morning with a slightly scratchy throat, chalked it up to sleeping in a weird position or snoring, only to have your sinuses go haywire several hours later? Yeah, apparently I’ve come down with a cold. It’s the third cold I’ve had in six months, with a fun additional detour through flu country as well. The point being, it’s not fun, and apparently I need to take better care of myself. My advice to you for staying healthy? Get enough sleep. And vitamins. And try to minimize the amount of junk food you eat. Hopefully that’s a reasonable recipe for avoiding getting sick. Oh, and wash your hands! But that one should be a no-brainer. Also a no-brainer? Today’s Pick Your Poison. Good stuff in this set, especially from Birocratic, Dead Meadow, and EDEN.
