I have the flu. The kind that sucks all the energy out of your body and then tortures you with brain-melting fever and teeth chattering chills at the same time. The kind that makes your hair stand on end. The kind that makes your boss and co-workers plead, "Yes! Please go home sick!" The kind that makes strangers give you a wide berth when you lurch down the street.

I like to call this type of influenza Ebola. You know: the deadly virus wherein all your bodily fluids shot projectile streams from your body's every orifice. And then you die.

I won't die, but it sure does enter the realm of possibility when you spend all day in the bathroom and all night sweating your balls off and shivering.

I blame Bob, who surely blames Charlie. Poor Superfly stands no chance.

Can you catch the flu off of a blog?

marty, no, you can't catch the flu from a blog, but you can catch it by breathing into the same microphone at karaoke. and before that, you can also catch it by playing nursemaid to your ex-boyfriend: wiping his brow, taking his temperature, force-feeding him orange juice, using your body heat to relieve his chills, and being awesome in general. i'm the best ex ever. boo-yah. so what do i get in return? a well deserved second chance to love him the way i should have the first time? no. i get the fluuuuuuuu...sorry i know that's off-topic, but i'm bitter. hope you feel better, troub.

Awwwwwwwww honey bunny! Feel better - i fought something Boogs gave me for 2 weeks before it left me. Mine was more of a cold though. So sorry you're not feeling well. Drinks fluids if you can (gatorade is best - it replenishes - water / cola / juice doesn't do the same) - and get lots of rest.

MWAHHHHHHH - Feel better sweetie.

Heyas Troubleicious...

As Kaia indicated, we've both been fighting some sort of super-nasty bug that hasn't taken the hint for about two weeks apiece. It's a combination of stuffiness/coughing/headaches/listlessness and the ever-popular "feeling shitty."

Hopefully yours moves on much faster than did ours; and if not, lots of soup, fluids and crappy daytime TV should help. So should vitamins, a slightly-opened window and lots of sleep.

Hang in there! :)
