Bleah. Lots of tea and coughdrops.
I also did something that I sometimes do when a cold gets on top of me... I played Metroid. Yup, the original. I bought one of the re-release NES systems and a Metroid catridge about six years ago. It cost around $35, all told, which is a reasonable price for a game. Metroid is still fun after all these years! A landmark in video game history.
(And I died in front of the mother brain, dammit. First death.)
