A short rant and some links

By 3 No tags Permalink 0

I’m still sick. Can you believe it? It has been 11 straight days of lozenges, cough syrup and, now, antibiotics. In fact, the cough got so bad that I tore one of my intercostal muscles and ended up in A&E. True story.

Also FYI: tearing an intercostal muscle hurts like a bitch. Especially when you’re not over your cough yet and breathing deep feels like being stabbed in the chest. You can’t lie down comfortably, you can’t sleep well and let’s not even get started on sneezing. I feel a bit like a Sim with a sadistic creator.

Anyway, so I’ve been stuck indoors for 11 days. It’s amazing how quickly you forget even just what day of the week it is. On the plus side, I’ve done a fair amount of reading, writing and browsing the internet these past 11 days. Having a laptop means I can do all this in bed, with a cold compress on my forehead and a hot water bottle at my feet. It also means I have a whole bunch of links for you all to enjoy.

The opening ‘scene’ to this is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Ever.
