Don't Come Near Me!!!
For I have either Glandular Fever or Tonsilitis... I've been feeling like shit since Sunday, and my Mum convinced me to go to the Doctor's this afternoon. He checked my throat and glands, asked me what I'd been feeling like, and told me to come back for a blood test tomorrow morning. This will tell them for definite whether I've got GF or not, but they won't get the results until the end of next week. Oh, the tension! If it's not Gf, then I've got a course of antibiotics to take care of the tonsilitis. Joy of joys. Pills to take 4 times per day. I fucking hate taking pills, I'm no good at it. I put them in my mouth with some water, then stand there looking like a lemon for 10 seconds or so whilst I build up the concentration / confidence to swallow them. I'm such a wuss.
On a more positive note (sort of), my being ill and sitting on my ass all day has at least coincided with new issues of a couple of my favourite magazines, namely FHM and Maxim, as well as the start of the 2nd Test between England and South Africa in the cricket. Fucking result. Or, it would be if England bothered to show up at all. We were fucking shit at batting, with the exception of Darren Gough and James Anderson, who are both crap batsmen and shouldn't be expected to have to save the face of the entire team! Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day and we'll get the South Africans out for a total which is at least in reach...
That would be an excursion for this blog into the real world outside of me. Don't worry, it won't happen again.
I've also sort of designed a new look for this blog in my head. Now it's just a matter of translating it into graphic and HTML form. My basic, very general inspiration came from Tecgirlious*, which is on the left so I can't be bothered hunting for the URL to link it here. I'm ill, can't be expected to do a whole lot! It's not going to be a wholesale rip-off of that design, but it's going to be slightly tech-based. That's all I'm saying right now, you'll have to wait and see.
