People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*

Monday Already?

I've been choked with the cold since Friday. This morning I struggled out of bed (and it was a struggle, believe me) and into work, to be told that ALL our systems are broken. The main system I use is down for routine maintenance anyway, but our emails are now playing up as well. In fact, the only thing that seems to be working is the Internet (praise be), and Word. And I never use Word. But the good thing about having a stinking cold is that no-one is giving me any work to do - they don't seem to want to get too close to me...

Every time someone comes into my office they recoil in horror and say 'oooh, you look awful'. Which is nice. But I do look awful, so I'll forgive em.

My weekend seemed to go by in a flash. I ordered my bridesmaid's dresses on Saturday, and for most of the day yesterday I huddled on my couch, oozing and feeling sorry for myself. I then got pissed off with the state of my flat - it really was a midden - so I hoovered the whole place and mopped the floors. I cleaned the kitchen and the bathroom, and tidied my bedroom. Then I collapsed in a sniffling heap on the (sparkling) floor. The Boy tried to cure my cold with a chicken curry that was almost combustible (it didn't work) while we watched Top Gear, and by then it was time for bed.

On a completely unrelated note, I've had to turn on word verification as I've been getting lots of comment spam. I've been reluctant to switch the word verification thingy on as it always, ALWAYS takes me at least two attempts to submit a comment. I don't know about anyone else, but my brain seem to have trouble translating the letters in front of me, to the correct keys on the keyboard. It started off that I'd just get the odd comment, but now I'm getting bombarded with meaningless comments from people trying to sell vicodin and convert me to Scientology. So word verification is GO.

Is it time to go home yet?

Aw poor Teeny - hateful dragging yourself into work when you can hardly drag yourself out of bed..... *Gothic lemsip to you*

Aw petal. I wondered where your email chat was. Get better soon.

Also I hate word verification. I have it for non bloggers but so far I am getting away with keeping it off for the inner sanctum. I never get it right first time. Hell usually not second either. I nearly posted about it once but I was scared it was just me.

You poor thing. I'm prone to dragging myself in when I feel rotten too, but really it's probably the worst thing you can do.

I too struggle with word verification - in fact I just gave up trying to comment on All Purpose Nerd's blog before coming here. But, I had far too many religious nut comments at my place and felt it was a necessary evil. Perhaps they realised I need saved...

Feel better soon!

And I'm glad to know that it's not just student mail that's messed up! I can't send or receive, and my sb.com mail won't let me send either, so I'm email-stranded. It's lonely.

I should really go to a lecture now, but I have four minutes in which to get ready, including changing out of trackie bottoms. Wish me luck...!

Goth - thanks, the lemsip is helping. Did you put a shot of whisky in it?!

Queenie/Cat - Thanks both. I'm so glad it's not just me that has trouble with word verification. I even tried clicking on the wee wheelchair man but that just confused me even more.

Sarah - four mins? You can do it! Go! It IS lonely without email, I feel like I've lost a limb. Although I think ours is fixed now.

Perlease - like I would be evil enough to not dose you with alcohol when you're feeling poorly bad on two chairs.

Nice half and half mixture - should do the trick...

Hope you're feeling better now! I seem to have got away cold-free so far this winter, which I put down to my excessive fruit eating compulsion, but a cold is way overdue - I'll probably catch yours!

Hate the word verification thingy too. I thought it was just me that couldn't read though!
