I was finally taken down.

I haven't been sick since 2004. That's a pretty good run, but it's over. I thought I was just having an allergic reaction to something, but Wednesday morning it became glaringly obvious that I was sick. I have a cold. Part of it is just getting too comfortable with not being sick. Normally if I feel something coming on I megadosse with vitmain c, drink a gallon of water, and go to sleep for 18 hours. That works pretty good. This time I was doing max vo2, bending yellow nails, and declaring that I could not possibly be sick, because I don't get sick!
Oh well, lesson learned. I should be good until 2012 now. Of course the world ends then, so it's kind of a phyrric victory.


  1. Sorry you're sick, but nice timing on the assistance dog. :)

    Wish you told me about the world ending sooner. I just had a new driveway put in.

  2. Sorry dude. Winter Solstice 2012. Game over man.

  3. That explains why they were so willing to offer a lifetime guarantee on the work.

    Seriously, my ex is a major apocolypse groupie. There's no need to go to school or pay the phone bill when the world's going to end in a year. Living every day like it's your last works for some folks. Not for her.

    Today it's the Large Hadron Collider, tomorrow the Mayan calendar or whatever else shows up in her inbox. Good quote on the subject ...

    "…when a calendar comes to the end of a cycle, it just rolls over into the next cycle. In our Western society, every year 31 December is followed, not by the End of the World, but by 1 January. So in the Mayan calendar will be followed by - or good-ol' 22 December 2012, with only a few shopping days left to Christmas."

  4. If I'm still around, I might get high that day.

  5. Count me in man. Can I borrow 100 bucks for a lid? I'll pay you back on December 22nd. I swear.

  6. I can't believe you remember what a lid is. You're dating yourself.
    My girl reads apocalypse books like they're going out of style.

  7. I think it's illegal to date yourself, but I might make an exception in my case.

    I'm still a young man, but I was raised on a steady diet of Marley, Cheech and Chong and I do like to relax from time to time.

    Thanks for the Scott Baio cred. Whose dating himself, now?

    I've got all kinds of apocalypse info if you need ammo, man. Everything from Y2K to Nostradamus. Never helped, but I got an education.

    It was a disease with my ex. Worrying about s*** she can't control and not fixing the s*** she can. Insurance and earthquake preparedness? Forget it. Some dude's shooting light through a freaking tunnel in Switzerland and suddenly she's all bent out of shape. If you really believe the world's going to get swallowed by a black hole, get a block of C4, catch the first flight to Geneva and do something about it.

    Thanks. That helped.
