I’m Sick Suzy. And not in a fun, pervy way, but a sneezing, coughing, drippy-nosed, whining-even-more-than-usual way.

It seems especially unfair, since I just had that sinus infection last month. Last month! I know the illness season, hand in hand with the holiday season (no coincidence there), is upon us again, but even for someone as known for excess as Me, two illnesses in two months seems a bit much.

I’m convinced it’s a parting gift (or insult) from the plane: “Here’s a little bug for you, and thank you for playing our game!”

One of my neighbors took pity on me, though, and brought me a care package of popsicles (for sore throat); grapefruit juice (vitamin C!); Campbell’s Chicken & Stars soup (childhood remedy); and a copy of the new Eminem CD (for boredom).

Almost as good as room service! I feel better already.

    Ugh, I feel for ya! I’ve been sick too, and just can’t seem to shake it.

    And I want one of those mugs, hehe…

    I’ll send some healthy vibes if you send me some.

    Ah, me too. It’s awful. I am trying to convince myself it will go away before finals – first one for me is Dec 9th. Gotta shake this mess! I’m sure my classmates are grossed out by my snorting, blowing, and hacking. *sigh*

    I’ve been desperately fighting something upper respiratory, so I know how you feel. What a sweet neighbour though! Let me know how you like the new Eminem CD. I feel like I should support him just for the Mosh song!

    Feel better soon!

    Awww, sick Suzy, makes me sad 🙁 But . . . I have a sure-fire toddy recipe that always makes me feel better.

    Orange Slices
    Cinnamon Sticks

    Warm the cider add the brandy the orange slices and the cinnamon sick – warm a bit more and then sip. It is good for what ails ya!

    Thanks, guys!

    C – I will if you will. Maybe we can cancel each other’s illnesses out!

    K – I’m enjoying the Eminem so far. I’ve only listened to it a couple of times – it takes me a while to get into new music (BTW I got “New Values” on CD today).

    A – Man, if that don’t cure what ails you, at least you won’t care what does!

    I hope you’re feeling better. I’m a big believer in chicken soup. If we were closer, I’d bring you some.

    Hope you’re feeling better, Suzy – glad you’ve got such an attentive neighbour!
