Hot room, warm head, cold feet.

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:

It's so weird you hate cats and love lolcats, everyone I know hates lolcats (except me, and you and I think Deb).

I hate the flu, you have my full and complete sympathy, there is no worse feeling especially when it's so willy at the moment. Poor dear :(

I don't get Facebook, I don't know how you found my account I forogt I had one, I have no idea how to use it, it seems like much too trouble, My Spaz is enough for me :)

d'jen - I'm hating it too now - I could NOT get warm last night for like 2 hours and now everything is just too hot, damnit. When you sign up you can do this thing where it scans your email accounts to check for ppl you know who have facebook... I gotta tell you, I PROMISE it's better than MySpazz. Scouts honour.

m - have you tried it? Coz I was in denial too till I signed up and fiddled around a bit. Canberra is not the place to be with weekend, it is just windy and cold and going to be a baaaaaad winter. Getting drunk lots sounds way funner - I intend to go to a baby shower and clean house for our inspection... woot... :o(

Fuck this cold weather. I dont know how you handle canberra... I am already dreading my weekends in Sydney!!!

LOVE lolcatz... ROFL. I need to do some with my cat pics so they can become fame whores :P I dont know what it is but the terrible gramma and cute pics cracks me up everytime

Enny said...

deb - I don't! I swear last winter wasn't this cold... DAMN YOU LA NINIA! You totally should make the famous, they're just so cute!

What a cute little kitten. Too bad my kitten has assumably asscended from the depths of Hell itself, planted on earth to bring me misery and a severe lack of sleep.

I hope you feel better soon!

LA NINA has made Melbourne sooo cold!

Enny said...

deb - I'm on my way now!

rosanna - heh heh, perhaps a photo of him will end up being one of the crazy angry ones, rather than the cute ones! Isn't Melbourne ALWAYS cold?! At least you don't get our wind....!

I love lolcats, they're just so cute! (And like you, I'm not exactly a cat person, although Brooke's cats would tell you differently).

You should search for me on Facebook. Although it may take me a while to approve you as a friend, because I can't access it at work. You might need to use my yahoo address though, it's on my blogger profile.

amanda - I think I'm slightly allergic to them - I like to pat them a bit (before they snap and bite me) but they do make my eyes itchy. And will do! If I can't find you I'll email you mine :o)

Rosanna said...

No, Melbourne is not *always* cold ;)

Enny said...

rosannna - my bias stands corrected :O)
