I have swine flu, so I got out of Thanksgiving dinner.

/that's what I'm thankful for.

Been there, had it, stood back and watched while my immune system mauled it and sent it fleeing for its life.

It felt like a particularly nagging, tiring, up-and-down chest cold, but no worse. Yay for immunity the old-fashioned way!

KingKauff: bambi121899: Good thing my family (healthy husband, 18-month-old, and pregnant me) all got type A influenza two weeks ago.

Can I get an AMEN?!

/it farking blew

and if YOU blew, you wouldn't be pregnant now, would you?

/sorry, couldn't resist
//remember, if you get called out for pigging out tomorrow, tell them that you're eating for two so STFU



Heh, I set myself up for that one. Lol.

This is why I'm spending my Thanksgiving entirely alone. Then after you're all dead I'll come over and raid your refrigerator.

EdNortonsTwin: luckyeddie: I'm at home coughing my guts up, my legs are so painful I can hardly walk, my chest hurts and I'm running a temperature, so I'm getting a kick....

Oh, wait. I'm not. Not sure if it's Swine Flu, but my wife is cooking bacon at the moment to cheer me up. Unfortunately the thought of eating anything is making me grooooohhhhhhhh - even lovely crunchy bacon.

Perhaps a sandwich.

What you need are meds that end with ...codone.


I'm actually just opening my meds now - the first one ends with 'himay Grand Cru'. Then I'm going to try one that ends with 'a Trappe Dubbel'. They're from this Belgian apothecary I know.

it wasn't swine flu, just the regular kind, but back in 1997 we had
thirteen family in a rental house for thanksgiving. the one-year
old tossed his cookies first, then within 24 hours everyone was
a-hurling. and it wasn't mom's cooking either...ahh family togetherness...

The "Family Gatherings" I remember could have been devised by Fr. Torquemada with assistance from Heydrich. I think some form of autism was a prerequisite to being there without developing a major ulcer. The ability to ignore the world around you is a blessing more than a curse, I think. Kudos to H1N1 for one more excuse to avoid those things.

Links: Wot Ho, Sir Roderick! And what does it do for docile, gays with keen eyesight like my valet, here?

It instills in them the complacency to remain as valets, pressing the pants of young aristocrats instead of taking a run at being Prime Minister.

/what ho, back at you!

I'm surprised to hear someone mention Heydrich. Most people go with the other Nazi names. He deserved the grenade in his lap from the partisans.

H1N1, the gift you can share over and over.

Think you are safe just because you already spent a weekend puking and coughing out your lungs? Well you can get it again. (new window)

Just spreading the good news.

notmtwain: "That's just putting it next to somebody else," said Judd Nelson, 49, waiting to start a two-day bus trip to Phoenix.

Wow. I guess somebody has fallen on hard times.


Sadly that's even the right age.
