Sorry about the short unexpected hiatus. After the stresses of the past few weeks I started to get a scratchy throat last weekend, which then turned into some sort of really nasty bug. Fevers, swollen glands and a killer scratchy throat. I judged it and found it to be Not Fun. A short visit to the doc, and some antibiotics later, and I'm on the mend.
This always seems to happen to me these days, get too busy and too stressed and then something comes along to say Just Slow The Fuck Down, M'Kay? Eh, whatevs. So I went with it instead of fighting it. A couple of days at home either in bed, welded to the couch with the DVD remote in hand, or sitting in the sunshine reading, did wonders.
If only I could claim that on Medicare.
Not a lot was accomplished, very few amusing anecdotes were collected, even very little web surfing was done. After a solid week of wintery weather and constant rain here in Sydney, the days I was home sick turned out to be beautiful, warm and sunny. A perfect time to disconnect myself for a couple of days, grab my book and sit in the sun.
I'm seriously considering becoming a hypochondriac, I mean, I don't want to get sick and all but the lifestyle rocks.
