Good News! I Didn't Die!

Since I last wrote on Thursday my condition took a huge turn for the worse. Friday was brutal. Saturday was even worse. On both Friday and Saturday I lost the ability to remain upright. I spent both days nearly 100% horizontal on the couch, barely able to watch TV. My temperature got over 102 and I was barely able to move. It's amazing how when you are that sick that you just cannot do anything. I didn't even want to watch anything on TV that interested me. Instead I just flipped on the television and watched whatever happened to be on which, unfortunately for me, was the Food Network.

Saturday I spent most of the day sleeping on the couch and the other half of the day waking up and feeling terrible. Sometime in the middle of the night a huge battle between my sickness and the medicine was waged within my body. The result was me sweating enough to soak my sheets and waking up on Sunday with a dramatically reduced fever. Sunday was a turning point where I was actually able to spend the entire day sitting on the couch rather than lying on the couch. I was even able to muster enough energy to walk one block away to the park, circle it, and return home to collapse onto the couch in exhaustion as if I'd just run a half marathon. I even had enough energy to play Super Mario Galaxy for an hour. It was incredible. Where was I summoning all this strength?

Later on in the evening the air filled with car horns, screams, noisemakers and other annoying noises as the New York Giants won the Super Bowl. I hadn't realized it until I heard the chaos outside my window but apparently that's the first major title a New York team has won since I moved here. I will be grateful for another few years without a title. There really isn't anything more annoying than being surrounded by rabid sports fans.

I watched a bit of the news before bed and watched a bunch of idiots lying endlessly about the impact of the Super Bowl. Most of them were saying things like, "It's because the Giants had heart! I never doubted they would win!" Then they interviewed players. "We always knew we'd win. It never crossed our minds that we wouldn't win this game."

I'm fine with you winning. Congratulations. But don't be a liar about it. It really didn't ever cross your mind that you may not win the game? Having heart is great but it shouldn't be used in place of a brain.

I guess people just love to lie. Can you fault them for that? Yeah, probably.

Hooray! I am glad you are alive! Who would take care of Jen, test extinct awful beverages so we don't have to, or pay the server bill for chefelf.com every month?!

And yeah, a lot of idiots had to make lots of stupid collective noise on my campus, too. Hooray, your team won. Congratulations on your state solidarity, sports fans, which will surely last a good minute past the post-game show. Now stop disturbing the peace past 10pm. Some people have to sleep (or stay up late to watch new House episodes.)

Oh yeah, I forgot about that episode of House. It added another reason to my list of reasons not to go to Antarctica ever.

Kind of curious, if you did die, how long would the site continue on for?

Good question. Well, not likely very long. My hosting company is extremely generous so they would likely not shut the site down immediately. I should probably leave that information with Jen in case something ever did happen though, shouldn't I?

The many other sites that I also host (Lance & Eskimo, FullyRamblomatic, Heccubus.com, etc.) would also be in the same danger.

If my host is reading this (as I know he likes to do from time to time), get in touch with Jen if anything ever happens. wink.gif

Nothing should be happening soon though. I've got this flu on the run!

The best thing about the Superbowl wasn't that the Giants won. It was that the Patriots lost. And while I would have been simply thrilled if my home-team won, I did not need to put up with the sort of rioting which occurs whenever Boston does something big.

The loudest/longest incident of noise I heard last night was when our digital cable randomly froze for about 3 seconds. rolleyes.gif

Glad you're feeling better, Chefelf! This particular strain of the flu that's been going around is been so severe in some places there's been at least one issue of quarantine (the one I know of is at a friend's college), and everyone's getting paranoid...

Damn chefelf that sounds terrible! I feel for you having had something similar last winter, still being that ill allows you to appreciate the little things like being able to breathe with out mortal agony or the simple joy of being able to haul your own arse to the toilet. thumbsup.gif

I too am sick but it is not the flu
so my heart goes out to you Chef

for those crazy sick days when
death seems like the happy alternative
but you didn't die yay!!!

I don't know about Boston
but Vancouver was practically destroyed*

when the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup final
funny enough, to New York.
i don't get riots but i hear they're fun huh.gif

It's nice to know you have everything worked out for website hosting in the event of a tragedy. smile.gif But speaking of which, the L&E board mk. 2 is unreadable. What happened?

Congratulations on living, Chefelf. I hadnt known you were that sick. I thought you were merely Sims sick. I hope you'll be around for a long time to come. No going into the West just yet.

You and I were sick at the same time buddy with the same thing and same temp at 102.

The doctor and nurse made me feel really calm when they walked into the room and said, OH MY GOD! when they saw me.

The doctor was amazed I was standing and that I drove to the hospital.

I think I am getting the flu shot next year.

You host all of them? Must be very expensive.

Had the doctor only been a doctor for 45 minutes? 102 is bad, believe me, but surely he should have seen worse than that in the past!

I wouldn't bother with the flu shot. I was told that the flu I got this year was 'not covered' by this year's flu shot and that a bunch of people who had gotten the flu shot had come in with this flu.

It could be worse. The Google Ads take a pretty good chunk out of the overhead so that my out of pocket expenses every month are generally pretty small.
