[snip details]

Sounds very much like mine, except that my version usually excludes the
aspirin (though it depends how bad you're feeling).

The other crucial part is *not* dragging yourself into work, infecting
everyone around you, & making the cold last longer because you're using
energy up trying to work rather than just fighting the cold (I bloody
hate working with someone with a streaming cold).  A day on the sofa
with frequent hot drinks & Buffy or similar on DVD will see off a lot of
colds before they get a hold :-)
