What a waste

Of a week and weekend that could have been productive.  Last Tuesday evening I started showing the symptoms of a virus that's been going around my office.  Starts with twelve hours of flu-level muscle aches, chills and fever.

I had no idea that you could be cold and shivering, and overheated and sweating - all at one time.

After that, the lower intestinal distress sets in.  Let's just say that I'm completely empty.  Seriously - completely.

I managed to crawl into work on Friday, mostly because we're in the throes of World Cup and my boss is going to be on vacation next week.

Since Wednesday morning I have eaten: a quarter cup of oatmeal, a half a cup of Goldfish, a bagel, a quarter cup of noodles with alfredo sauce, a bowl of peas, a bowl of ziti, a piece of toast, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, six fish sticks and a dozen french fries.

Half of the way I feel right now is probably because I haven't been eating.  Oh - there would have been more french fries, except that someone very short and cute kept coming over and begging for fries.  She does love them.

Oh - AND Bob got it too.

So instead of getting yard leveled, limed, and seeded - we've spent the weekend on the couch.  I did get a lot of reading done though...

Ah, apparently not. That sounds worse. I'll keep my Drazis and leave you your Pak'ma'ra Special of the Day.

Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks - me too. Being tethered to the bathroom is a drag, but I have attacked it with overwhelming draughts of violently pink potion, and that seems to have stabilized the situation. I'm grumpy about the time lost, though.

I'm so sorry! Here's hoping the cute fries-lover won't get the bug too.
