    I do not care for adenovirus.

    We seem to be experiencing a more unpleasant version of it than normal. I hardly ever catch a cold. This sucks. That is all.

    I will send you Explody, or at the very least, an Explody starter kit. I have lots of spare parts. He will then enter your immune system and eat the bad bugs.

    Seriously. Eboo has somehow obtained a vial of my blood. No good can come of that. Beware!

    By the way, that article is hilariously poorly written. The author must've been coming down with something at the time.

    Hopefully what you've got is just a cold (rhinovirus) and not adenovirus. Depending on the serotype, adeno can cause anything from a moderate cough that you recover from quickly, to muscular atrophy which takes a couple years to recover from, to death. I used to do a lot of work with adenovirus at my last job. Gnarly nasty stuff, it is.

    Feel better soon!

    On a brighter note...

    Despite sharing Donna's cold she also got me to go out and get a Neti Pot and after using it I have to first say "wasn't that freaking gross" and then add that after using it I feel 100% better than I did.

    Now I am gonna take that nap.

    Thanks, all. Clifton, I fear it really is adenovirus. It's going around my office. I'm the healthiest of the sick, and so everyone else is worse than I am.

    I feel the neti pot is really helping. I keep flushing it out...

    I'm gonna have to try this neti pot thing someday. The sickest I tend to get involves a plugged-up nose and maybe a cough, but not being able to breathe at night (or much during the day) is a pain in the ass.

    X, I resisted it for a long time and finally succumbed with this illness. Now I feel silly for not doing it sooner. It's actually quite pleasant.

    Imagine rinsing all that black pollution gunk out of your nose after a bike commute...

    I'm sure it's much more pleasant if you don't look at the resulting schmutz.
