Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

I am awash in a sea of phlegm. I’ve been sick since last Friday. My fever has been as high as 103.1, a number that should be associated with the FM dial, not a human being’s internal temperature. I’m on the mend now, and wishing like hell I’d gotten a flu shot this year, because the flu is almost certainly what this was. Have you had a flu shot this year? There are no excuses.

That's the scariest article about the flu I've ever seen. I've ponied up the $20 the last 4 years and gotten the shot though I haven't gotten sick (I think with the shot you can get a light flu) and I don't know anyone my age who gets flu shots.

Hope you're feeling better! Being sick sucks.

So sorry to hear you're feeling so badly. Hope I did not contribute to that. I really do need to get a flu shot working around those germy little kids.

Your thoughts?
