Being ill sucks | September 10, 2003
I've been off work the last couple of days with a cold, and have to say it's sucks. I always quite like the idea of being off ill. It brings back memories of not going to school, lounging around the house watching old Basil Rathbone movies, eating soup and not having to do any homework. It also brings back memories of being a student, getting up late, watching daytime TV and playing computer games all day.
Unfortunately the reality is just so far removed from the romantic image I possess, its laughable. There are no cool Black and White movies on TV. No cool 70's reruns of Starskey and Hutch or The Professionals and no completely nutty folks on Jerry Springer having affairs with their underage transvestite cousins. In fact with 30 channels of shite to choose from, there is absolutely nothing to watch at all! My head hurts far to much to use the computer for more than 5min, let alone play any games. About the most I can do is sit on the couch, groan a little and feel sorry for myself!
Oh, and eat soup!
