Boomerang Flu


My husband and I call it the Boomerang Flu when you start to feel better, try to get up and do a few things and then WHAM you are down for the count again. That is what happened yesterday. The aches came back and I just generally felt like crapolla. So I spent most of the day watching seriously bad movies

(Saving Silverman: When will I learn that Jack Black is just not funny enough for a feature length film? I want him to be Jim Belushi (as does he), or John Candy, or even Chris Farley, but alas it is not to be. He has moments but he can't carry a role in a movie, plus the movie itself was just awful. Yes, of course, I watched the whole thing.)

and seriously bad TV (Sex in the City: When did being slutty become cute and fashionable? I sound like a prude, believe me I am not, but come on! It is a show about teenage hormones and angst at 35. *eye roll*)

I have eaten a sum total of about 1000 calories since Tuesday and slept about 100 hours in the same time.

I. Am. Over. It.

It is time to be better! I want to go running, I want to ride my bike, for the love of God, I even want to go swimming! Please! Enough of this flu! I want to feel better NOW!

(Folks, we have officially reached the 'high drama' stage of sickness, as you can see. Don't worry she hasn't eaten much she will wear her, hysterical, self out in a moment)

*Sniff*


I have even accused poor Willie of being a faker (He did run 5 miles in 35 minutes mere moments after his sickness, chased down frolicking college boys, had time to flirt with and pass the cute, fast girl of last week's race, AND is pictured holding a pretty hefty trophy from the race. I am just sayin'...)

We are surrounded by ill bloggers! Yikes! Being sick SUCKS! Hate it! But maybe this is the only sickness you will have! And it came after the marathon-blessing!!! The bike and running aren't going anywhere-get better, chicken soup-they say it actually works! And sleep sleep sleep and fluids fluids fluids!!!

I hope you are feeling better very soon!

Grin .... you have made me laugh with your "sick" posting. Sorry, I do hope you are feeling better soon, but you do write so well :)

Another marathon to aim for .... OMG .... how much crack!!

4 weeks until you, Andrea and Shelley do Sacramento!

Take it easy and let's hope that the side effect of being sick, has resulted in some weight loss!

You must be truly on the mend if you're well enough to whine! That or you're still feverish because I thought I saw you say you *wanted* to swim! Be good to yourself!

Other than Shallow Hal, I'm not a big fan of Jack Black, either. I loved Chris Farley (I presume that's who you meant when you said Tim Farley?) But now sick or not sick, I'm gonna hafta stop the press about SATC, love that show...and I think I love it b/c of it's far-fetched-ness. :)

Thank you! I KNEW Tim Farley was not right, but was too lazy to check! I will fix it in the post!

I have so many friends that love Sex in the City. Of course, I would be too embarrassed to admit to the shows I watch. Let's leave it at, I have a serious reality TV addiction. The lamer, the better apparently. Celebrity Rehab anyone?

Oh no, not you too! Does seem like a lot of folks are sick (or injured). Hope you get well soon. Thanks for your vote!!

Everybody's a critic. Okay, so your critique of Jack Black was dead on (and as usual, hilarious). Personally, I can't figure out why I continue to watch and rent Nicolas Cage movies when most of them suck or don't make any sense. LOL
