Back at work today and feeling better. I had a pear when I got to work, and then I had some ginger ale (I went to the store last night and picked up some eight-ounce cans of ginger ale. They're so cute). I've been snacking on some saltines, too. Yes, I'm feeling better, but I want to try to take it easy on my stomach. I'm planning to have PB&J for lunch, and maybe an avocado.

I'm fairly certain that yesterday was my first sick day at this job. A little more than a year on the job and just one sick day taken. Pretty good record, I'd say. I don't really get sick very often at all, although there are certainly days where I could have stayed home if I didn't care so much about my job.

I got my first paycheck that reflects my raise. One thing I hadn't thought about was that my 401k contribution went up, since it's a percentage of my income instead of a fixed dollar amount.

So glad you're feeling better. Also yay for increased 401k contributions.


They're so cute).</>
Should there be a period before the close parens?

Good thing you phrased it as a question, otherwise I might have been tempted to subtract a Queue point. Well, ok, I was still tempted.

Why would you think there should be a period there?

B/c it is a full sentence, like the one before it in parentheses.

You wouldn't do the following, would you?

I went to the store and got some grapes (I really like grapes.).

It doesn't matter that it's a full sentence. It matters that it comes at the end of the parenthetical bit.

I suspect I already have done stuff like your example, actually, so it doesn't look wrong.

A quick scan of your recent posts shows that you do it correctly. I'll bet it's just the two-sentence thing in my post that threw you off.

I, of course, would vote for the loss of half a point. But I have no ulterior motives. At all.
