Guess who's in bed with the tissues, headache and scratchy throat?
Seems that standing in the rain for a few hours on Friday and Saturday to see His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the sleety freezing walks back to my car from work yesterday and Monday AND hanging out a bit with youngest bro has deemed me suitable for a flu. It's also worrying that The Hun is feeling somewhat similar - though at least we're getting it at the same time... the typical pattern is for me to get a bug, and then he is to catch it just as I am better but of course his seems 10 times worse as is the case for all men, it seems. He always gets to win.
For all my hypochondria, I'm actually quite healthy. I only had one flu last year - the week of my birthday and the same week I got the flu shot. I remember when I was younger I would think 'I wish I was sick - I'd love a day off'. Then of course on the rare occasion I actually was under the weather, I'd swear never to wish for such a stupid thing again.
There is more than a slight chance that I have been wishing for illness as I too have succumbed to Facebook and am spending all my waking (and some of my should-be-sleeping) hours trawling for people I know and spying on their friends. Oh MySpazz, you almost had me - but Facebook is so much easier to use and more entertaining (even IF I can't remove any of the applications I have already tired of).
Anyways, in it's twisted little way, I am kinda hoping this isn't just an afternoon flu, and does give me time to sit on my ass. One of our two heaters broke the other day (as in, it was producing large amounts of heat when switched off and producing sparky oil crackle sounds when it was flicked on again) so we are heating the house off one coil heater stored in the bedroom. 3.5 hours of heat in a bedroom is too much, but I just can't get my feet warm...
Where was I? Oh yeah - on my ass.
Beacuse I would love a day of heated couch doonaing, soup in one hand and The Hun's head in the other - he's a stickler for a good headscratch and I'm jumping at the chance to use this lolcat I saw the other day:
