Unhappy New Year

A Perfect Storm of Maladies Mars 2018 Start


Not that expectations were all that high for me in the coming year, but he who controls the fonts controls blog emotions, or some such matter. In any case, remember that flu I mentioned at the end of my last post? (Probably not.) The bastard virus lingers like distant relatives with no other place to go. Dogging me in non-flu-like ways.

If you've read, They Took My Prostate, you'll know that my sleep apnea requires flowing air through my nostrils for me to sleep. Not so easy when the nose is clogged. Plus I'm coughing up phlegm and need to roll over and spit it out into a styrofoam cup. (Never look inside.) And since I have no prostate, a deep racking cough results in a fun urine squirt. I'm getting hammered top and bottom.

But the worst is no sustained sleep. Who do I lash out against?

If it's not on the upswing by Monday, I'll see the doctor. Until then, it's just me and the Circus Channel in the quiet hours before dawn.

OY! That sounds rotten! Good news is, you aren't alone. Half the people I work with are either coming down with the flu, in the grip of it or just getting through. None of them took the flu shot (for fear of the risks) and now they feel like they'd prefer being shot~put out of their misery.

Hope you get well soon! Lying around is fun on a long weekend, but not so much fun when that weekend drags into the week and you can't force yourself out of bed for love or money.

Something that might cheer you... Hulu is bringing back ANIMANIACS so hopefully you'll get a call for writing work.

Excellent observations on the flu life.

Much better today; getting more sustained sleep as my nostrils clog less.

The new Animaniacs is all the talk. I'm thinking that a copy is not the original, and the
new show will tend to reflect the current era.

Should be interesting.
