If it looks like swine flu, and it aches like swine flu, and it bleeds like swine flu, then surely it's a hangover.

But I haven't been drinking.

I've had to cancel plans for the next two nights, and I've come over the years to hate being a big flakey plan cancelling bastard, but the lurgy's got me good and proper this time.

I suppose Arthur's Day will come to pass again in 2259 and there is the added blessing that that fucking 'To Martha' ad will never air after tomorrow, but I feel as unkempt as a spilled box of party Smarties into a puddle of deepest rank.

To Barbers!

Anyway, Comedy Central has a Lee Evans week coming up. Sure you couldn't pick a better time to be ill. There now.

I'm sorry. Pretend I offered you a warm blanket, box of tissues, tea laced with whatever else can warm you and a hug.

Okay, so I was wearing a mask and washed my hands afterwards. I work with kids. You don't want what THEY might have. ;)

Feel better soon.

Don't toy with me Terence, I'm not a well man.

Hope - Whatever the tea tincture is, I want it.

'Sick as a small hospital' I get.

Hope ye's are better soon.

Oh no, poor party-smarties. I'd wish you better but you write so damn beautifully when you're miserable about something.

Old man undies tea. Lemon, honey, ginger, garlic and if it will help, a slug of whiskey.

(And i really can't believe I have consumed that. Must as been too sick to notice).
