if it had been a movie?

i woulda walked out.

it had no third act.

oh sure - a bravura opening - stumbling into the docs, waving and babbling and then very unexpectedly unconscious - and i guess a tour de force with the hand held camera work; faces all blurry and dramatic and
cut to the hospital - nurses - patients and impatients and things that go beep in the night. x-rays - always fun.

ok, so that was cool - so far so good - a short interval of further unconsciousness

before the second act, which was an unexpected stick shift into farce with the assembled forces of the hospital (many wearing blue gloves - i kid you not) pursuing a - hapless yet death defying - delirious wytch determined to find somewhere to smoke...

... funnily enough it was the giant no smoking sign! ha ha ha!
hide where no/one thinks you be dumb enough to go, i always say - cough, cough, cough

and cut to DIAGNOSIS - ooooooh...
it's a virus.

i SAID oooooooooh!

it's a virus.

I said OOOOOOOOOH - oh forget it - anyway it plays it's exile in dullsville.
a virus.
a gorram boring virus.
don't even make me glow in the dark or invisible or in quarantine,
just consistently and unexpectedly

unconscious. woah, sorry - happened again.
see? you shoulda walked out too.

ach well. it was at least a comfy bed built for shivering on and - yes! - reading BETTER DAYS. i like it fine so far - just hope it has a better third act than mine.

oh and - yeah...

"Kris Tamora hated hospitals - always had, always would. It was like schools - they all smelt the same, left him confused as to why he was there... and suspicious that they would not let him leave."

the irony is not lost on me - can't say it's appreciated much all the same.
what IS appreciated are the many morale boosting get well messages.

(it was really moving to have the print out brought in to me by zoner).

to conclude: i have a truly boring sudden raging evil menningitus type virus which i can't spell and that will now require much rest, so i won't be around for a spell - but i was going on holiday anyhow so i'm ok with that... as much as an FFFN addict like me can be.

stay shiny, super people - this is a wonderful site that i love very much and y'all know it's true!:)

Iiee! Meningitis is not fun! (Or easy to spell. I had to use spellcheck myself.) Though, the funny thing about viruses is that they can be rather benign but annoying (like warts) or they can reek havoc on your entire body.

Its good to have you alive and back, wytch! Not that you've identified the problem you can deal with it properly. *hugs*

Oh, yeah, gotta love those out-of-nowhere blackouts.

Realising that the light coming towards you is oncoming traffic because you've strayed across the road is not so of the good, though.

Did they have to put a camera up your nose? 'Cos that's fun. (Not)
