Grounded the last couple of days with a cold. I have alternated between:

1) Sleeping
2) Coughing and hacking up goop
3) Cruising the web
4) Reading
5) Downloaded free seven day trial of LOTR online

What do you all do when you're sick?

At night, take a mug of hot lemony Neo Citran (a purely Canadian remedy, if i recall correctly) or a shot of NyQuil, light a candle, lay in bed and trip out to Broken Social Scene.

Usually I just lie on my bed and listen to the radio all day, with the curtains closed. If I'm strong enough, I try and take a walk down to the shops just to get some fresh air. I can't stand lying around the house doing nothing.

This time last week I was starting to feel crappy, woke up sick the next day but went to work anyway. By 5pm I was sicker than I had been in a long time. Spent the next 2-3 days sleeping and drinking theraflu.

Lay in bed with a hot tea and my laptop and cruise the interwebz, mostly. Either that or migrate to the couch and watch TV with my computer. Then I can come here and bitch about how I am sick, lol.

I'm sick and I just partied last night..

But, now I'm just using the laptop, sitting around, drinking lots of fluids with a blanket wrapped around myself.

Stay away from people. I am the worst at being sick. Right now I have a minor head cold and you would think I was dying from all of the bitching and moaning I am doing.

Waaaaaaahaaahaaa...poor me!

Usually I am in the middle of a semester. So I study and try to avoid class. At night, hot water with lemon, honey and brandy is pleasant. Feel better.

Complain a lot more than usual, and have really, really weird dreams.
