051: OXYGEN DEPRIVED

"Existing is basically all I do!!"
- Fry, Futurama

Sorry for the brief period of neglect. I think I have hay fever (or something far more sinister). It's all because of getting caught in a pollen storm while having a civilised lunch on Sunday. If you ask me it's a vast conspiracy engineered by my local fire brigade after my medical records were "mysteriously stolen" from St Vincent's Hospital.
Since then I've been unable to breathe or see or form coherent sentences. This is why I'm writing. Everyone seems like they're in a prickly mood today. So I'm slightly reassured that I'm not the only one.
I'm so angry at my body for getting sick. I exercise it. Wash and groom it. Eat a ridiculous amount of broccoli and that hydroponic tomato. Plus I have this stupid haircut. So you think all of that would earn me some good health for a little bit. My body begs to differ.

I just got sent down to retrieve some cardboard boxes. We're decorating our team at work at we need to make cut outs and stand ups. So I was dispatched to flirt with the keeper of the boxes. A mere twelve minutes later (I timed it!) I was back at my desk, triumphant. My scrawny arms buckling under the weight of my cardboard bounty.

For some reason I'm having a Frank Sinatra week. I was seduced by a sale at my local music store. 46 Classic Sinatra hits on 2 CDs for a mere $17.99. A pittance!! It's been the twisted soundtrack to my wild mood swings this week.

While I'm feeling all oxygen deprived, I'll take a second to remember those around me who are less fortunate or just more cranky than me.
Firstly I'm told that Mel is under the weather - so I'm gonna try and send her some of my powerful immune system during my next break. Lollie is sleep deprived and still reeling from house sitting a feline infested apartment.
Also she killed a mexican fighting fish (or something) My heart goes out to you both.
I have Pez to eat, and medication to take! It seems I will spend the next few hours of work on a sugar high, making Ilyria do dirty, dirty things.

the end.

Hi babe, thank you for your immune powers, it worked. I missed your fine ass today, bad! And I got Jayne's weapons - I made him and Darla do the naughty and then posed them in a decidedly apocalyptic way - Jayne looks dead sexy. I hope you're okay today and that your body hold up. I think your hair looks wonderful. I like it - it felt all ducky like. :)

Mel, every day at work when you're not here is like some kind of Wes Craven produced nightmare!

Mocushie, cant wait to see what you've done with ur hair. I shave mine all off these days

Iz - strangely enough, being sick inspired me to start watching Firefly again. Also, I'm experiencing Wash withdrawals :-)
