Gaaah Martian Death Flu

I assume that's what it is (damn you Explody and your moonbase!), since I haven't been handling any live poultry. I don't even have the energy to read Foo, plus sitting at my computer gives me stabby pains in my eyes. Actually, there's not much point in me posting this, since I'm going to curl into a fetal position after hitting "submit", and won't be reading anything for a while.

Awwww! That sucks. Hope you get better soon!

Just remember, no matter how sick you feel or how close to dying you are, you should always post on BF!!

YIKES sorry to hear your sick. Sending warm thoughts your way, get better. When I'm feeling like the flu or something, I love eating Egg Drop soup. Its yummy and makes me feel better.

Awww, thanks guys (and wiser words were never spoken, Taerom...). Fewer stabby pains this morning, but I had a bunch of weird dreams last night. I was watching DVDs of Babylon 5 all afternoon yesterday (good geeky sick day TV), which might have had something to do with it. I seem to remember the Narns and Centauri taking over BF.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

That's history! Witness the current residents!

Stomach bugs can often be cured with 2+ liters of coca cola classic per day. Its a strong acid that destroys steel, and it also seems to work for the stomach flu/food poisoning.

Edit: Is it a stomach bug? I kind of assumed it was since there is one going around here, but certainly that has nothing to do with Shanghai

It's not a stomach thing, no. I'm sore all over, have a nasty headache, was feverish last night, and have been coughing a lot (sounds like SARS ). I'll keep that Coke thing in mind for stomach bugs though... and I'll stay in Shanghai so as not to add to Michigan's existing diseases

I used to work with a "good ol boy" who would get "likkered up" whenever he felt sick. (He got sick alot!) I reccomend a bottle of whisky. It can be mixed with the coke and you can kill two bugs with one stone.

I use copious amounts of capsaicin and water to destroy almost all ailments. So go find some really spicy stuff to chow on.
