    I've got the lurgy. Gaah! I feel totally ****. Even the thought of a hot toddy doesn't raise my spirits. I want to sleep for a week but I can't breathe when I lie down. Or when I stand up. Or at all really. I wish I was a man then I could have the day off tomorrow with man-flu.
    Anyone else suffering or are you all disgustingly healthy.

    Packed my ears but forgot to wear them. I had a slightly better resemblance to a block of ice.

    Yeah, the wet pink nose look is alright for dogs but not for badgers. Not to mention the pink eyes and the mouth-half-open look, giving one the aspect of an adenoidal half-witted albino rat.
    Yes I'm feeling very sorry for myself. :(

    No, right now it makes me feel sick. I must be really ill! No chocolate! Oh dear... and it's Preston next weekend as well.
    Going to make my pink fluffy hot water bottle and go to bed now. Night night.

    Yep, that sounds pretty much like how I've been feeling since 48h post-Butlins - haven't slept for 3 nights.

    Sorry but Man Flu is a recognised condition that women can't get. Apparently it affects the brain cells, so women obviously suffer less. :D

    And anyway BMB, you've just got a cold. I've got Chickenpox and at MY age that's no fun.

    Aww poor you! Chicken pox is supposed to be worse when you're old aswell isn't it? :tongue: I bet you look like you've got bad acne! I hope you aren't itching your spots, you'll make them worse! Get better soon!

    Oh and BMB, just because you can't have man-flu doesn't mean you can't milk it for all its worth! Badger-Flu sounds a lot worse than any man-flu i've ever seen anyway! Get Better Quickly Mrs Badger!

    I remember going to a band Christmas meal and took my daughter along. Unfortunately she had the first stages of chickenpox and was at her most contagious point where the spots hadn't come out. Our soprano player then went down with it over christmas and couldn't figure out why he was feeling so rough and itchy. That's kids for you, walking germ incubators!

    Been as rough as hell for the last week and its got worse and gone into the sinuses - the manflu accusations were bounded about but went to see the doc on Wednesday who confirmed it was real enough. Still a very poorly bunny tho, cant even pick the bass up let alone blow it. Good job we ducked out of Preston.

    Sounds like bovine TB to me ;)

    BADGERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BOVINE TB, OK? It's those mad cows. They infect us.
    I did take the day off work. The dizzy spells were a bit of a giveaway.
