It's not all an elaborate ruse, some misguided attempt to establish for myself an online persona of dubious quality. I really am dull. If you don't find that unbearable, though, this is my blog that examines just how truly boring I can be.
Title: I hate colds... Posted: June 14, 2008 (03:03 PM)
I am fortunate in that I don't get head colds very often. When I sense one coming--maybe I have sniffles or my throat irritates me slightly--I self-medicate with echinachea (not how you spell that, I'm sure) tea and orange juice. It has staved off one cold after another.
Two nights ago, I went to sleep feeling great and woke up with an absurdly sore throat and the sniffles. I started drinking the tea and orange juice as usual, but I knew it was already too late. What do you do when a cold begins while you're asleep?
Today I work. I don't want to go to work. My nose is running bad--when it really wants to, it runs so badly that I could honestly just sit for hours blowing my nose. But of course, I must. So I'll be doping up on cold medicine and miserable all evening, as a follow-up to all day yesterday (which thankfully I had off from work).
Ugh. I hope it's another three years before I have another cold like this again!

I used to get a ridiculous amount of colds, despite eating a reasonably healthy diet.
These days, I live about 50 metres away from an entire street of takeaways. I make full use of these on a regular basis, and am as fit as a fiddle.
Some univeristy should fund ridiculous research into my immune system.
