Something stupid

4: Adsense

Ugh. I did something kind of stupid the other day.

I've picked up a nasty stomach bug that's been going around. Pretty bad. 104 degree fever, stuff running out of me at both ends, the works. Some wicked fever dreams (at one point my wife startled me awake and I screamed about white spiders scratching my brain; it seems appropriate). As sick as I've ever been. Getting better now, but the mistake I made was that when I stayed home sick from work, still puking my guts out and feverish, I attempted to work on Goblinson Crusoe. Subsequently, I dreamed about working on GC, on the UI in particular, fever dreams that spun around and around in my brain like some sort of sickly rotten stew.

Now, although I'm starting to get over the illness, just the mere thought of working on GC again makes me feel nauseous and depressed and very, very tired. I really hope it doesn't last. At any rate, until this stuff is fully flushed out of my system, I'm just going to stay away from GC.

Ugh, I was puking recently as well (few weeks back). Worse. Feeling. Ever. I feel for ya - get well soon!

Feel better bud and I know the feeling. I have that problem particularly with food; if I eat something and throw up at some point after (like within 4 hours) I get nauseous every time I even smell that food for a very very long time afterwards.


Currently cannot even smell peanut butter because of this....damn migraine making me throw up toast about 4 months ago.

By the grace of God, I seem to have survived. Against all expectation to the contrary. Further, the fever-induced distaste for GC has abated, and I find myself itching to jump back into it this week. I sort of lost the threads of what I was doing, though, so it might take me a bit to get back in the swing. Thanks for the well-wishes, guys.

it turns out 3 days ago my mother picked up the same stomach bug. she had it coming out of both ends. very very sick, she said she wouldnt wish it on her worst enemy. you know its bad when your sitting on the toilet and puking in your sink. im glad your feeling better and sorry you had to deal with that. Im scared to go see my mother now I dont want to get it.
