RL & Lurkers

In RL news, [personal profile] deird1 is a rotten buttface who gave me a cold.

What, you say? It's not possible to spread germs from Australia to the States through the Internet? LIES, I TELL YOU.

Anyways, I feel like shit. I'm kinda dizzy, and my head hurts, and my throat's sore, and when I talk I sound like I ate a pound of gravel and then vomited it back up. And my nose is all stuffed up, which leads to coughing and earaches and phlegm going down my throat.

So, yeah. Not the best of times.

/whining

It does mean I get to sit around on the Internet for long periods of time. That's kind of a win.


And in COMPLETELY UNRELATED NEWS, [personal profile] kitty_poker has suggested the wonderful idea of a Lurkers Day!

This means that anyone who lurks about can feel free to stop by and say hi - in case the reason you lurk is cause you're shy, or you don't feel like you have anything important to say.

And if you're not a lurker, I encourage you to do something similar on your journal - it seems like great fun to me.

Mwahahaha! I am the evil genius of cold-giving! Fear me! FEAR ME!


Or...

*huggles* You poor dear. I hope you feel better soon. Colds suck.

Thanks! I hope so, too. :P



...and, speaking of, are you feeling better?

Err... sort of?

I'm no longer lying on my couch feeling too dizzy to move, but I am still phlegmy, sore-throated, and slightly headachey...

Aw. That sucks.

...you know what this makes me think of, though? Is the last time I got sick, which was actually when I started writing fic. Cause I remember writing and posting my first one when I was all feverish and having to keep my overheated laptop off my overheated legs.

& also? That was only in October! It seems like much longer than that. O.O

Wow. Now, that's dedication...

I know! I feel like I've been doing this for decades.

LOL, not really. I could come off as the brave heroine struggling through her illness to bring her ideas to the peasant masses, but it was mostly boredom after about a week of doing nothing but watching videos on YouTube. It actually can get boring, surprisingly.

F'real. I barely remember what it was like when I just read/commented/lurked, much less wasn't part of fandom at all.

I meant to also say, Hope you feel better. I get carried away, at times. *facepalm*
