Down & KO'd

That's right, day 3 and my cold just knocked me out today. It took me 12 times before dialing the right number to call in sick to work this morning. Maybe it was the medicine I took. Normally when I'm sick I watch tv or surf or alternate between the 2. This time I did neither. Instead I alternated between sleeping and laying in bed, deciding whether I should eat regardless of not being hungry, and disregarding the old wives tale to "starve a cold". I comprimised. I drank a truck load of juice and nibbled on toast.

It's a good thing I don't have a fever, otherwise I'd say I have the flu. There have been enough flu cases in NYC to freak people out. Not me. If I get, I get.... if I don't, I don't. In the meantime, I'm just going to lay in bed till I'm better.

If you still need some entertainment, scroll down a bit past the autum picture and there you'll find links to my blog family. Try visiting them if you want some amusement! Ciao for now.

I feel your pain. I hope you get better soon!

Get better soon! BTW, have a post on the games up for you at http://laughingwolf.net/archives/001575.html Enjoy!

BTW, if you want a folk remedy, try eating something spicy hot to change the Ph in your gut. If you normally eat spicy, go very bland. Then switch. Often just the hot (along with plenty of liquids, vitamins, and such) does the trick for me.

Oh, sure, make your blogfamily do all the heavy lifting for you, just because you're incapacitated.

A nice warm bath would make you better better too!

I hope that you're feeling better very quickly and, I'll throw this in for Tammi (Road Warrior) and myself, of course the juice was TROPICANA!

Anyways, I hope you'll be feeling much better very quickly!
