Slowly getting better

Thanks for your well wishing, and for those of you who prayed. I'm still feeling like a piece of sh.....ugar, but less of one than yesterday or the day before. So, I'm getting better, thank God.

My brain is working about as fast as an one-legged asthmatic hedgehog trying to scuttle across wet cement while stapled to a snail, however – which makes writing for a blog post tricky. Damn it, I don't even have anything funny I want to write about. In fact, I'm feeling quite grumpy and would really love to be mean to somebody. But I've been nasty enough to Jim recently, and his rabid and obstinate anti-Wrightian anti-Emergent tics. So who, well, who apart from the world of crazed fundamentalism, is left? Probably plenty, but I don't have the energy to be a really convincing scum bag anyway. Best I just give up, and limp out a 'quote of the day' or something equally pathetic.

I think you redeemed yourself with the groundhog. Fantastic site as well (even though it spreads the clearly satanic cultus of evolution and the pagan evilution worshippers who kneel before Darwin almighty). Thanks for the link.

Chris, If the virus hit you anything like it hit me in January, then I feel for you. After the fever subsided came a lingering cough, mostly due to post-nasal drip. That's how a lot of infections enter, via the nose, and then drip back to the throat and bronchial passages of the lungs. I suggest getting an adult-sized nasal aspirator at any drug store, and boil a cup of purified or distilled water in the microwave and add a bit of salt and baking soda to it and aspirate nightly. It keeps down the bacteria in the back of the nose, and if it's already in your lungs, stops the post-nasal dripping from reinfecting the lungs. And it's far cheaper than antibiotics.

Glad to hear that you're on the mend :-)

You obviously lost a bit of faith back there somewhere. Good to see that you're getting it back.

Now go and wash that mud out of your eyes ...

Thanks Drew, I thought so too :-)

Eddie, I'll bear that in mind for later ;-)

Edward, a sincere thanks for your ideas! I purchased the nose spray already.

Thanks Jason! Pray for me!
