The fever is back... [Aug. 31st, 2007|06:14 pm]
Stephan

The darned virus I caught earlier has re-asserted itself, most likely due to the sudden change from cold weather to high temperatures.  I started feeling woozy Tuesday night.  It's one of those bugs that you feel at your worst as the day progresses.

Wednesday I left work about 1 hour early because I was feeling ill.  The following day I visited the doctor, was prescribed meds (Amoxycillin/clavulanic acid), and a medical certificate granting me two days leave.  I've spent much of my time trying to sleep.

This morning I called in to the office with the intention of clearing only the most urgent stuff - things that absolutely MUST be done on the last business day of the month and that only I know how to do.  Unhappily my Relationship Manager kept heaping work into my To-do list.  He's a good chap normally.  I don't think he realised how sick I was (everyone else did), and he was under stress himself from the previous day's work.  I didn't get out of there until 12:15pm.  I went to bed and woke up at 5:22pm, then suddenly realised that I'd left one of the tasks unfinished.  I checked my phone to see if anyone had tried to call me, and the darn phone had turned itself off.  That's one bit of bad luck I REALLY didn't need.  I turned it on, and a message popped up from the telco saying that someone had tried to call me at 1:22pm.  I hope I'm not going to get into trouble over this... I really can't cope with additional problems right now.

I hate when a phone stealthily turns itself off. And apparently they use a lot of energy turning back on.

They should stop making them viruses outa rubber, they're bad enough as it is without them bouncing back again!
(wait, aren't you supposed to be made of rubber so you bounce back again?)

Anyways, here's hoping that you feel better real soon, being sick is no fun.

Man that went a long way to cheering me up! Thanks!

I think it's a combination of sudden change in the weather, and my low spirits that allowed the virus to take hold of me again. Of course all that nonsense on Friday didn't help any.

I've got to try and get an update in for the comic, because next weekend I'll be out of the city. George W. Bush is invading Sydney and I'm evacuating to about 400km north. I just need my mental faculties to stay intact for the next 12 hours.
