Oh Crap! Now I Have It!

For a few days, I have been dealing with a scratchy throat and some headaches. Just yesterday, it stormed the beach head of my person and now, it's official...I have the flu! The sore throat won't go away and I hacked so much last night it kept me awake and now my throat is also inflamed. So far, the last 48hrs yielded 3 hours of sleep(if you can call it that). This sucks prong...BIG TIME!!! Despite this, I will still go to school tomorrow. What's worse is that I have a test on Wednesday. The only solace I can take right now is that at least it took as long as it did for me to get this crap.

One other thing that actually perks me up is this: My last post covered a most heinous act of cowardice on B.P.'s blog. The response I have been getting from this is putting a big smile on my crusty face, but let's not forget what this is all about and it's definitely not me, it's about the passing of a good woman that was clearly adored by the family. Thanks to everyone who posted their .02 on this, it makes me feel good despite my condition. The more I thought about it(after I made the post), the more I realized that this blog was the appropriate venue to say something. I may pick at a few of you from time to time, but what I won't do is do what that anonymous asshole did to one of my circle. Jim and John, thank you especially for your input, that means a lot to me as I wasn't quite sure if I breached some protocol there.

P.S. Don't you guys think that for one minute I'm going soft, it ain't gonna happen. Keep in mind, I'm under a lot of medication right now and sometimes it gets me all mellow. Speaking of which, it's time for me to get a few shots of Jagermeister's bastard cousin(NyQuil). Good night, all!

See? You spent way too much time painting my cats and house purple, and now you have the flu! See what happens?

I hope you're feeling better soon. The ONLY thing that works for me when I'm sick is NyQuil. It's horribly nasty stuff, but it works! And, take it when you're already in bed, 'cause if you take it in the bathroom you're sleeping in the bathroom! :-o

Oh man, you poor baby! I hope the NyQuil provided you with some sleep and you're feeling a bit better this morning.

Re B.P.'s blog - anon people like that should just leave their comments at the door and shut the hell up. What a lovely tribute that was to his mom and nothing should detract from it, especially some a-hole like that. Thanks for pointing this out and letting us show our support.

And just when we thought flu season was coming to an end. Poor guy--maybe actual Jaegermeister would be more effective!

You know, I feel pretty much ok, but I have a sore throat now, and my chest is congested. Don't tell me you gave me the flu via the internet! :-o

Mmmm.... NyQuil. Way back in my drinking days I used to keep a couple of bottles around at all times: the state of Iowa maintains a liquor monopoly and the only state liquor store was a 60 minute round trip by bus. Made a great little nightcap after an evening at the bars. Sometimes I even used it when I was sick.

I hope you're feeling better!

I had that same crap CDM, wait until you get to the part where you start driving the porcelain bus.

I still got it after almost three weeks.

The cruds seem to be making their way north and west. Jaegermeister is OK, but NyQuil is cheaper...
