Fine, are you happy now?

After two weeks of trying to shake this cold, I give up. I give UP, do you hear??? I succumb. This is me, succumbing. I am leaving work and going home to sleep for the next 18 hours. And when I wake up I had better both sound and feel like a normal person and not like a staggering zombie with the voicebox of a German Shepherd.

In my absence, here is something to watch.

When I saw this I thought, "Hey, it's that guy from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz!" And "Hey, it's that guy who played the police inspector for 2 minutes in North and South!" "Hey, it's Lemsip! Good times!"

Yes, I need a life. But if it doesn't involve an encyclopedic knowledge of British actors and products then I don't want it because clearly that is no life at all.

I also love the clip of the same show -the one about, "how women get away with farting." Huh-larious!

Get well soon.

Something kind of weirdo, random thought: just about 20 minutes ago I remembered another post you wrote about a year ago; the post where you had a horrible cold, and everyone was giving you advice from sinus infections to drizzling honey in your nostrils....weird.

What is growing on that man's chest?

Hope you feel better. I had to succumb a couple of weeks ago, so I know that sleep is going to do you a world of good.

I saw this when it aired! I love Nick Frost and I absolutely adore Daisy Haggard!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have a sonnet to write and need to find a word that ends in "aggard".

Hope you feel better soon!

ii eee, your remembering that last cold JUST as I was posting about my current one probably means you are magic. I was thinking about that time too (December 12-22nd, for those who care). I had a much better sense of humor about it then--I think full-time jobs possibly kill humor. Should maybe look into becoming a full-time blogger.

Anon, seriously. I thought that too.

Thanks, Jimmy. I took a 4-hour nap yesterday and it was heaven. Am going to lounge around in my own squalor today as well, so as not to jinx the healing.

Tusk, I just spent about 2 hours watching "Man Stroke Woman" clips on YouTube. Some of them were too raunchy to recommend, but the rest had me rolling on the floor--how did I miss out on this!? I suggest "laggard" for your sonnet.

Thanks, Eva!

I had that cold. I went to the dr. after 3 weeks and they gave me antibiotics and the good cough medicine. All better now.

That's what you get with British comedy though. Man stroke woman just happens to have more good bits than the average series.

Oh! I can't believe that sweetcorn post was so long ago! That was like my favourite post on here!

I love Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz guy! I couldn't stop laughing when he demonstrated how he called for her. hahahahaha

I hate being sick, and I like to be a big baby when I am sick, but I can't anymore because I have too many babies...

So, I hope the rest helps and you feel back to normal!
