I've always been a joiner; two days ago I joined the ranks of those who have caught the Flu.
My hair hurts. My toenails hurt; everything in between hurts. I am medicated and doing better than I was, though still contagious; I have quarantined myself in my house, and won't even get near the cats because I read on the internets that cats CAN catch the flu from humans. I'm also missing two days of work for the first time in recorded history (due to sickness).
Let me point you towards one of the best old films that I've enjoyed recently: "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers", the 1956 original done up pretty on Blu Ray. It's a tight, well told story that moves along quickly.
"Dog is Man's best friend, Man is Cat's best servant." One of the things I appreciate about cats is that they always operate in their own self interest. If they are getting underfoot or head butting your leg, it isn't done to benefit you-they want something. Dogs will do anything to please you-cats, if they don't see an upside for them, will ignore you to focus on their own stuff. That honesty is refreshing.
Speaking of honesty, t'other day I read a comment on another blog which told more about the commenter than the subject being discussed. Let's call him Mel Misogynist-his comment about a fictional woman became a tirade against evil heartless women who cause more trouble than they are worth.
I said, "Wow-he has more issues than "Ye Olde Farmer's Almanac".
I am the same on-line as I am in the real world-I am simply me, whether in church or at work or interacting with my fellow earth walkers out and about. Good, bad, or indifferent-it would be hypocritical
to act one way on-line and another way off line. Though 'Mel' showed himself to be a woman-hater (at the very least) it was refreshing to read someone being 'real'. A real jerk.
Time to lay back down. Hav
