Stupid throat

I decided to get my hair cut before going home for vacation. The primary reason for doing so is that it has a ton of split ends. The secondary reason, and the reason for doing so at this particular point in time, rather than last month or next month, is that my mom complains less if my hair is actually even (she doesn't care too mucha bout length) and it soudns like Caithris' parents might look upon me better if my hair is a little shorter than normal :)

I got up early this morning, or at least i set my alarm early. I went off at 8, and then i hit snooze till about 9, and was out the door by about 9:15. I remembered to turn in my rent chek before i left (yay! not get evicted while i'm away on vacation! =) so it was 9:30 by the time i got to SuperCuts. I told the haircutter person that i wanted her to take about two or three inches off, but she said that the amount i was showing her was more like four or five inches. So my hair has gone from about um, er, mid-chest, to just below my collarbone. Unfortunatly i then came straight to work without having the chance to change my shirt, and have been slightly itchy all day =P

My throat has been annoying me and being itchy and sore the past few days. Normally i'd just ignore it, but since i'm going to be taking a plane flight tomorrow (which typically leaves my throat feeling pretty sore for several days afterwards) i'm indulging in an uncharacteristic non-donaithnenish concern for the condition of my throat. Anyone have any suggestions for a medicine or something i could take, eat, drink, swallow, chew on, suck on, incant over, offer sacrifices to, or rub into my toes, that would help keep my throat from getting totally dried out and icky on the plane?

I've tried drinking lots of water, but that doesn't seem to help much. I did just have the cool idea of asking for milk instead of diet coke or V8 juice. If it can help fix a sore throat afterwards, maybe it can help prevent one in the first place.

Any other ideas?
