Hurrah for immune systems (at last)

Well I hope I'm not pre-empting things, but yesterday and today I've finally been feeling quite a bit better. I still have a bit of a cough, but apart from that I'm pretty much back to normal yay! I no longer even need to be wrapped in a duvet to stop shivering. Considering I first went down with illness last tuesday, which got progressively worse until by thursday I really shouldn't have gotten out of bed (but went to lectures anyway because I'm that sad), I guess it's about bloody time. Some important things I've learnt:

  • Benylin is absolutely useless.
  • Vicks is a miracle substance, as is Lemsip if you can stand taking it, but really has to be in hot drink and not capsule form.
  • You really can be sick enough to miss lectures once in your university career. Go on, give into your bed.
  • Sleep is a brilliant cure.

So, having gotten a couple of hours shut-eye before watching the Melbourne GP live (yes, I really did set my alarm for 2AM to wake up and watch Formula 1) and quite a few more afterwards, I appear to have come down with yet another dangerous and even more potentially degree-damaging illness – CBA syndrome (that's Can't Be Arsed). I have a 5,000 word report due in on friday which I have yet to even start researching for, and it's now gone 4:30 on Sunday. The thing is, it's a really interesting (to me) subject – piston aero engines. Seriously, that is like a dream essay title to me. And still I can't be bothered – I'm just sat here blogging and whiling away hours playing TA. Hmmmm. Anybody got a cure?

Can you tell I'm bored today? Can you can you can you?

Trawling through the blogs, I found a survey I HAVEN'T taken yet!

You Belong in the UK


A little proper, a little saucy.

You're so witty and charming…

No one notices your curry breath

So apparently I'm in the right place – woot! Not that I was going anywhere anyway…

An entry on health

Usually, I don't get ill. I'm fairly sure the last time I got ill was when I had fresher's flu at the start of the first year, which is about 2 1/2 years ago. And that only lasted a week. I have a good immune system, healthy(ish) diet and even when I do catch something it rarely takes more than 3 days at the most for it to go away. However, I seem to have caught manflu from somewhere. I blame Chris. He's good for blaming and the last person I knew who was ill. So this is all your fault. I've had this wretched bleugh-ness since last tuesday now and it's getting beyond a joke. I've spent about £20 on cough mixture, vitamin tonic, lempsip, nasal spray…the list goes on. And still it bloody well persists, and I swear every day I wake up I feel worse than the day before. If this sounds all whiney then it really doesn't mean to, I'm not whiney – I'm exceptionally pissed off with my body. For crying out loud, it's a bit of manflu. Get rid of it already so I can get a (half) decent night's sleep where I can actually breathe, make it through a lecture without sounding like a bren gun and not ache as if I'm 90. I haven't even washed my car since sunday because I don't even feel up to that for crying out loud, and the poor thing is filthy.

Bloody hopeless body/immune system. Get on with it.
