Two pivotal embargoes passed today at roughly the same time.
I spent the morning in a flurry of work. Most importantly, getting Resolution’s Crackdown 2 review ready for publishing in time for the 2pm embargo lift. I got there of course. It’s over here if you fancy a read. Kudos to my Mum for sorting out the header image which I’d initially made a total mess of editing. I might, hopefully, have some form of writing ability but I don’t have image editing skills! She’ll be doing quite a few of the images for Resolution from now on I think.
Once 2pm passed I hurriedly organised promoting the review. Besides promoting across Twitter, I submitted it to N4G and managed to get it listed on VG247 too which should provide the site with some useful hits!
Throughout all of this I had a bit of a sore throat. Nothing too bad but it was niggling. I figured it was nothing though and carried on doing my various bits and pieces.
Then I stopped working and went out to get some shopping. Big mistake. Evidently the moment that I stopped doing anything, my immune system gave up. Now I’m coughing like a mad, coughing person and I keep sneezing. My throat feels full of razor blades. Oh and I ache all over. Delightful!
It’s bizarre really. I felt fine when I woke up then the sore throat crept in and now I feel horrible. Obviously it was waiting to strike at 2pm along with all the Crackdown 2 reviews going live. Ugh.
I’ve got work to go to in less than an hour too. Double ugh.
