It’s my birthday, yo!

Since I’ve been recovering from the flu, there was no partay this year. Sad but true. Cest la vie! I’m just glad I made it to my birthday without expiring from the hamthrax. w00t!!

I Survived the Aporkalypse (probably).

I say probably because at no time was I tested for the H1N1 virus. That said, I did come down with influenza. Well, I assume that was the one which got me, and my doctor (with whom I spoke on the phone) agreed. Although it could have been the other, seasonal, flu which is also going around. I can tell you this, though. Having the flu sucks, but as far as flus go, this particular flu wasn’t all that horrific. I felt like I was hit by a truck, yes, but only for a day and a half or so. The rest of the week I felt like I was recovering–slowly getting better. So what did I do? I rested.

I started a dishrag for myself:

And I finished my first handspun:

So, fear not the Hamthrax (or seasonal flu)! Most people who get it, like me, do not die.
