Default This Flu season sucks!

I don't get stay-home level sick very often, but this one knocked me out Stang got sick and then I got sick a few days later. If any terrorists want a biological weapon, just take a sample of the air from our house.

Luckly no turning up any colors but had everything else. Today I can finally sit up without a headache! Still feel like like crap but getting much better. And doesnt help when Gryphon laughs at me cuz my voice sounds like that lady from Mad TV that says "He look like a man" then I start laughing then the coughing ensues.

Flu is hitting hard this year, yucky!

Heh. We - all four of us, one at a time - got the stomach flu while we were on vacation, over Christmas, on a 1000-mile-one-way roadtrip. I held out to the last, but finally got it the day before we went horseback riding.

LURCH!

Miss Swan! Oh man I miss those sketches. I remember one where they turned her into a movie character played by Susan Sarandon, and for some reason Dennis Hopper was some bad guy.

"He look like a man?! If I hear he look like a man one more time... everybody dies!"

I just got home from my fiancee's place. With any luck, I passed it onto her ;p

Got knocked on my butt a few months back. Something was going around at work (where whole teams of people were not able to come in for a week or so), and then I caught something from my fiance. Stang and Gryph: you guys probably had what I had a while back, we were up there around Christmas and everyone we were around got sick with what we had.

My father-in-law called one day looking for Gryphon and he asked where I was and I said "Im still stuck at hobe". Now everytime he calls he makes sure to remind me of that and now Gryphon makes fun of me. I tell ya those Snook's.

What your country needs is an aggressive vaccination program like the province of Ontario has... People are practically forced to get flu shots, which drastically reduces the amount of flu going around (I don't get shots, but only because I don't travel and rely on communal protection).
