Infection setting in

Already using Facebook more than I want. And that's only... what, 4 times this week excluding picture uploads for my charity stuff?

I'm an old and confused man, and Web 2.0 frightens me.

Check in #8

It would appear I've had a little hiatus from the blog. This wasn't planned. It's a case of random convergence of illness, a lack of any real news, busted scales and a general feeling of CBFness. Basically take the script of a really bad romantic comedy and replace the girl with bacterial infection. What a riot!

I... yes, as I've scribbled I have not been well. Which seems to be a common thread in my life any the moment. I honestly think I'm coming out of this infectious cloud that's been hanging on me, but knowing I've missed the Romp and yesterday's fun run from this thing has me pretty peeved.

That's the extent of the last 3 weeks then. Me being mopey and on the edge of depression. I'd have used "precipice" but that seems far too dramatic.

Dare To Wear

Hi there,

On Friday the 30th of March I will be getting into costume for “Dare To Wear” day to raise money for "Fitted for Work", a not-for-profit organisation that exists to help women experiencing disadvantage to get work and keep it.

I will be dressing up as this happy chappie.

I will be In costume all day. At the office and out that night. The amusement factor alone is certainly priceless.

If you would like to donate, please check out the link below.

Uh oh, he's posting a video!

The good (prescription!) drugs just kicked in and I'm in a very mellow place right now. Perfect place for the video below.

I'm very jealous of this crew. I wish I had the time to plan something like this.

I'll finally have the space once I've moved into my house to set up a very old keyboard that belonged to my Nan, so in a couple of months maybe I'll have taught myself enough to be able to play Chopsticks in a duet.

A man can dream. A man can dream...

Edit - I'm sure this has probably been posted a million times on Facebook already and I'm way behind the curve. I don't care. It's still interesting.


A cold can feel like you are dying. Not over exaggerating this one. I'm shaking, sweating, hot and cold, dizzy, headachey... basically go to any diagnosis website and list anything they have under symptoms.Totally have a wicked abnormal menstrual cycle too!

Learnings so far? Levels of coughing where you feel like you may choke to death also inevitably lead to an extremely sore back. Right now the muscles along my spine are protesting like the Vietnam war is on.

Tied to this in a strange but entirely logical way, the movie 50/50 starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt is great. I can't say it enough. Just a fantastic film. Though small word of caution - do NOT watch it if you currently suffer from ALL the following - 
  • 27 years old
  • Male
  • Lower back pain
  • Sick
  • Mildly depressed (usually caused by being sick)
  • Suffer from Hypochondria (Single most important one on the list)
Swear to String Theory, you may lose your shit. So heed my words.

See it, but maybe see the doctor first.

Lastly, do not underestimate just how freakin' amazing pharmaceutical grade drugs are. They're like candy for adults! Just... read the dang packages first. After spending the last 24 hours on Cold & Flu meds that were just not having any effect. When I went to check the back of the box to see how many milligrams of things ending in "ol" and "ate" I was taking, I was greeted with measurements for "White Willow" and "Elderberry".

I'm sorry, but screw you MediChoice! There is only one time I want to be enjoying elderberries, and it ain't with drugs.

Mediocre News Weekly

It's not really that newsworthy but for the first time in around two weeks I'm running on time for work. Still half an hour later than I want to start my day, but I'll take the small wins.

Also, on Monday I heard the most powerful, emotionally charged story laced with a message of raising awareness on male depression in my life. And it ended on a poop joke. I love Australia.
