sick people make for good entertainment

The common cold generally involves a runny nose, nasal congestion, and sneezing. You may also have a sore throat, cough, headache, or other symptoms. Over 200 viruses can cause a cold.

Koff, koff. One of those 200 viruses got me. Which is kind of funny, if you think about it. Ha! Colds are fun. Want to create a festive holiday sculpture out of my mountains of used tissue? No? Well, don’t say I never offered you anything.

I started to feel a little punk on Friday night, when my throat began to seriously hurt. My throat rarely hurts, so naturally I assumed I was being felled by some exotic avian virus and responded accordingly by staying up until midnight doing chores. What is up with me getting all uber-responsible the minute a virus hits my system, and how can I use this power for good instead of evil? I’m thinking petri dishes and injectible antibiotics.

My mighty immune system has rallied spectacularly, and after spending yesterday swaddled in blankets and shivering miserably, I feel almost well today. Sore throat: finally gone. Snuffles: less snuffly. My head is full of phlegm, but it’s benign phlegm now; not that evil, scheming phlegm of the last few days. Bastardly phlegm. Down with phlegm!

ellison and alderJust in time to miss the big Alt dot Life holiday party, unfortunately. Not So went in my place, but it just wasn’t the same, mostly because laying in bed = different from celebrating with friends. Unless you’re a polygamist. Which, hey, not my cup of tea, but as long as you have a big enough bed, right? I digress.

Not So and the baby had a lovely time, even though poor Not So didn’t really know anyone even peripherally, since they’re all My Friends From The Internet. I like that I have friends from the internet, and these are particularly good ones to have.

I got to see pictures after the boys got home. And then I had a cup of tea. But no polygamy. Follow along, kids.
