in sickness and in health

Man, I am fed up with being sick. I feel like crap and my lungs hurt and I want to go out but I realise that prancing about in the freezing cold is probably a good way of turning a chest cold into a chest infection into bronchitis. And I am bored, even though I have Sarah Waters and Sherlock Holmes books and Robin and Buffy DVDs and Radio 4. Watching Robin isn't the same without Patsington to share the amusement and excitement.

Cough.

Thanks! Who knew the livejournal lurgy would strike its victims with such force?

Oh woe! My own LJ Lurgy cleared up fairly quickly, thank goodness, but it was the THIRD bad cold I've had this year.

I do recommend that garlic broth that I was talking about (the recipe's in that Moosewood book I gave you), it is both comforting and genuinely medicinal.

Hee, there's no way that someone as tiny as the Gnome could contain all these germs!

Oh, I don't know about that - the child is a Tardis of snot, at the very least.

What?! No, no, babies are practically MADE of germs! That's why they're so cute, in that same way that holly berries and some of the prettiest frogs are poisonous. On this earth to tempt us with their cutenesses. ESPECIALLY The Gnome.

I seem to remember catching something off of a baby last year at this time, too. One minute, it's all, "Oh, aren't you so CUTE." and the next minute it's all, "Sniff! Sneeze! Hack! Lament! Ache! Woe!"

The spread of the Bubonic Plague? IT WAS BABIES WHAT DONE IT.

"ESPECIALLY The Gnome"

By this, I mean, of course, that she is especially cute, not especially germy. ALL babies are germy and filled to the brim with snot, so it has nowhere to go but out the nose.

Alas! Lots of hot whiskies, it's the only thing to do.
