Sickbed Confessional

I have a flu-y cold. I got chills, they're multiplying. Jesus, Mary and Joseph (and all the holy saints of heaven) I am over this Winter! Seriously, one malade after another. One of the women I have been working with came to work for several days with a streaming flu, so I guess it's not that unexpected. Oh and the work I was doing dried up, as we finished the project faster than they expected. Now I have to wait until another site comes online (soon hopefully), or I can pick up some other temp work elsewhere. Meanwhile I'm taking to the sofa for a few days to get over this cold.

The only acceptable cure for flu, and daytime tv, is to watch endless clips on youtube of Lily May Veronica Savage. Truly. I've heard of laughing through the tears, but you can laugh through the snot as well. (Too much?)

My computer is allergic to my blog! Recently, every time I try to view my blog in Firefox or Safari it crashes the browser. I can log into blogger and write posts, but I can't actually view my blog or make a comment. Weird huh? I updated Firefox but it made no difference. Everyone's a critic! Sheesh. "Bugger off, I'm not displaying that shite!" I suspect it's something to do with Flash because anything with a Flash movie on it (and trust me, those are some of my favourite websites... are you with me?) seems to crash it. Youtube excepted, so maybe that blows the theory out of the water. Most blogger blogs seem to be crashing it at the moment as well.

Technology is rebelling against me and I will not stand for it. The last (unreachable) downlight in my bedroom blew last night, so it's strictly the flattering light of the bedside table from this point on. No it's not the bulbs, I risked life and limb to change them only a short while back. I think it's the transformers, or something. It'll have to wait until I have the $$s to get a man in because in my opinion, somethings are best left to the experts. Wiring and all things electricity related being the top of the list.

I had a big shop yesterday and bought a pantry full of healthy food. Last night I made a lentil casserole (yummy!) from this book, and tonight's plan is a tempeh dish with ginger and lime. However, being sick and all that, what I really would rather do is just have a bag of crisps and then maybe order a pizza...

Honey, I'm so sorry to hear that you're snotty. I hope you're feeling better soon.

In the tradition of great comic drag acts, also look for Dame Edna's interview with k d lang. Hilarious.

Evan's flatmate has just come back from Melbourne with suspected swine flu... Looks like Evan will be in quarantine for a week.

Due, you need a major immuno-boost! I swear by green tea first thing in the morning and Vit C tablets daily-ish (the kind you swallow, chewable are worthless). I still get sick but they are such little, trifling ailments, usually gone after half a day & fewer & further between. Think about it.
