OK I hear the H1N1 shots are finally just now widely available locally, but it already made it's run through the local schools Thanksgiving week (and the previous week), many local schools were closed a few days due to heavy absence rate. Today my wife had a 103F (39.4C) fever this morn, preceded by strong chills and shivering. My guess is she has it. Since the inoculation takes a couple of weeks to work, it's too late for me; I will get it too. She staying home from work (of course) today.

Hey UnwantedSunbeam, I just seen Family guy at a motel last Monday, I see "Quagmire" is your avatar. I didn't know earlier - we don't have cable available here (not that I would pay for it anyway).


Quagmire is a god, lines like

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know", Alice answered. "Then", said the cat, "It doesn't matter.”

In all honesty i think i got that H1N1 before the whole pandemic scare. I caught a flu while working at that bar, which landed me on my ass in howling pain and misery for 2-3 days. If that's the case, then Zoe got it also, and that bug barely made a dent in her daily routine (Zoe > H1N1).

Rofl. I guess I am a hell of deamon afterall. No bug stands in my way, when my mind has set a wall against it...

False alarm. Turns out my wife has non-flu related infection. Sigh of relief.

I don't see where the happiness comes from for getting the H1N1 shot. Could you explain?

Haven't gotten either shot. Forgot / didn't make time / etc. Might get one, might not. Generally, I know it is a good idea but I also have always just suffered the disease and rode them out, so I am in no real rush.

That's not happiness as much as it is contentment. I have the peace of mind that I will not get H1N1 (or at least a very negligible possibility of). Damn that was a hot young Indian (asian Indian) woman who gave me that shot, prob 5' 0" and only about 100lb - very petite.
