Flu. Flu bad. Beth Hate Flu.

I swear Saturday morning I was FINE. Totally FINE. And then it hit me like a truckload of bricks. Really angry bricks. And then the sweating started. And then the freezing started. And then I wanted to sleep for four weeks. And then I realized I had the freakin' flu. I was totally incapacitated by 6:30 that night.

I went online to see what I should take for this and how long I was going to be out for....and that's when I saw this new Flu Facts campaign. Look, it was helpful and all finding out the various symptoms of the flu - it confirmed what I had already suspected, but a few questions spring to mind:


Why is the penguin from Happy Feet advertising anti-viral medication? I mean he's snuggly and all, but....What did it do wrong that it couldn't get on a Happy Meal box like every other Disney character in history?

Anyway. I'm better now. Two Nyquil-heavy days of moaning and aching and whining, but I'm better. I'm still confused about the penguins.

SSB, the greenlake gals were musing that we had no idea you drove a chevette in high school. You think you know someone!

Bessie was beautiful.
Bessie was our friend.
I remember cheering her on as she chugged up the hills of Lakewood hauling us to our intended destination of Southwest Plaza, 7-11, Cost Plus, The Armadillo, or Wax Traxx Records, "you can DO IT Bessie!! We believe in you!"

Good memories...
May she rest in peace.
