h1n1 sucks

i think i had swine flu this week. i had like a bad fever and some stuff and i went to the dr. but apparently so many damn people have it now that they don't do the test anymore (unless you are hospitalized) so there is really no way to know whether or not you have it. anyway they put me on tamiflu which was ok and i am basically fine now but it was weird. i think it's really going around now especially among younger people 20s and 30s. most people just kind of get better on their own and i think the main thing is that you don't want it if you are pregnant but other than that it's really not a big deal. i think the thing in mexico was that no one got treated appropriately and also that it was a much worse strain than this one going around in the U.S. what i had was just like any other flu, really. it's just that the name is so sick...SWINE FLU it just sounds so awful! i guess i should say h1n1. anyway on the upside, if i did have it then i for sure won't get it when it mutates into something worse so that's cool. also i lost 3 lbs. also i thought this was funny: while i had the flu i did manage to eat a fortune cookie which said "keep an eye open for an opportunity in the field of sports." um, ok.

when i was sick i had a lot of time in front of the t.v. and let me just say that there are certainly a lot of weird ass movies on lifetime! holy crap! i watched this one called "judicial indiscretion" about this judge who was a supreme court nominee and she got raped and blackmailed and all this shit. it was totally psychotic. lifetime is so weird! also i finally got around to watching the first episode of OZ which was interesting. i didn't know the newspaper guy from spiderman was in it. it was a little intense but i look forward to seeing more.

in other news happy birthday julz i miss you! also i am really craving KFC for some reason. it's so sick but so good..mmm! gotta gain back those 3 swine flu lbs!

  1. Don't you love how Lifetime can trap you into spending 12 hours of your day watching the craziest movies. I am glad your feeling better and I would if you would pass me some of that swine flu, so I can lose a few pounds!!
