Don't Expect Much

I'm sick this morning.

Some kind of bronchial infection. It's been coming on for a week now, fever, sore throat, crap in my lungs. My chest hurts and I gurgle when I breath.

Oh, fun fun fun.

I hate being sick. I am not a good sick person, as I've mentioned. And I've got to be on an airplane Friday. Being sick now is making me seriously unhappy.

I saw the doctor yesterday, it's not strep and it's not swine flu - so you know, relax. The doctor assures me that you can't catch it by reading Stonekettle Station (as long as you wear a mask and spray yourself with Lysol afterward and then gargle with rubbing alcohol - or you can send me $20US and I'll promise not to cough on the monitor while you're reading). She said I should be well enough to fly without infecting everybody on the plane, so that's good I suppose - though I do intend to cough in my hand and wipe a booger on the TSA jerks as I go through security.

Between this and the damaged hand (Stitches come out Thursday, yay!), don't expect much in the way of posting or shiny content today.


Now, you'll excuse me while I go take another boiling hot shower and have a bowl of soup.


  1. Chicken noodle soup?

    Stupid bacteria. Hope you feel better ASAP.

  2. Feel better dude. If it's like mine, it'll take a couple of days for the antibiotics to kick in.

  3. Go take a nap. Napping makes many things feel better.

  4. Great, I have the same crap, been home the last two days,thanks for sharing bro

  5. Like I told John, lots and lots of garlic. That combined with the Michelle's napping, neurondoc's chicken noodle soup, your hot shower and John's antibiotics oughta scare any bacteria away.

    Feel better soon, mmm'k?

  6. Get well, get well soon, we want you to get well. Get well, get well soon we want you to get well.

    Sorry, couldn't resist a Seinfeld reference. Now, if only someone would bring a cake...

  7. Did you and Janiece see that Blogger is no longer smoothly redirecting to your site? There is a screen with buttons saying "You're about to be redirected

    The blog that used to be here is now at http://www.stonekettle.com/.
    Do you wish to be redirected?"

    "This is also a note "This blog is not hosted by Blogger and has not been checked for spam, viruses and other forms of malware."


  8. I hadn't noticed. But then I updated my bookmarks ;)
