I've been home ill beginning Tuesday this week.
There's no doubt there's some trash on the TV during the day.
We've got a new program called "The Doctors" from the US. My. God. I haven't heard so much fearmongering crap and bad advice anywhere else in my life!
Today, amongst other things, we're looking at Michael Jackson. He was a drug addict, whether it was taken care of by a doctor or self administered, Jackson was a drug addict. If his personal doctor hadn't given him the drugs he wanted he would have got himself another doctor who would. That Jackson lived so long with such an amazing addiction is a miracle. It wasn't a matter of how, but only when.
Earlier in the week (can't remember when, I've been quite sick!), they had a question from a caller to the show about her son starting college and how she took him to college and saw where he'd be living with a bunch of (smelly, germy) guys and she was concerned about him picking up some germs and bugs while he was in college. One doctor said that it was well known that at college many dorm mates did get ill as it was a breeding ground for bugs. Another doctor admitted that he was ill all the time when he was at college. Yes. He did. He said that he probably got ill because he didn't know about soap. He didn't use soap. That's really disgusting. I hope he's learnt about soap now. (Where were his parents? Didn't his mum tell him to wash his hands with soap?) I call the soapless doc Travis Dork (with my best PM accent).
And there are no movies on television in the day during the week, they show them all on the weekend. Which is a pain.
When I'm not feeling like crap I suppose I should sort out my new laptop. Well, it's not the laptop, it's the modem. I'll have to reset the modem and the encryption code.
Worst thing about being sick is not having anyone to make me a cuppa and something to eat. Cooking is a nuisance as I have had no energy and there's nothing quick with a minimum of preparation. And besides, food has had not taste for several days.
Doctors are ringing the panic bell with listeria. One even said that you can get it from meat - which is not quite correct. Read about listeriosis here.
