I would appear to have strep throat and a fever and 10 shelves half-built in the living room and a house like a shed. I got four hours' sleep, I can't sleep tonight because I have to leave for the airport at 4am. My voice has gone, I sound like a goose farting in a fog and I feel like death warmed up. Argh.

My timing is *shite*.


Thank you for listening *g*

That just always seems to happen, doesn't it?

I sent you warm salt water for your poor throat, chicken soup and ginger ale for your fever and general illness, caffeine for your sleeplessness ... and a hunky construction worker to finish your shelves. And anything else for which you might find him useful.

Of course, we're also sending you houseguests, but maybe that doesn't sound like a helpful thing under the circumstances.

Poor K! Hope you feel better soon.

In preparation for houseguests:

Get the books you might want to read out of the second bedroom FIRST.

Put out all your shiny toys so they may amuse themselves while you sleep.

Lemonade is the refuge of the strep victim. It got me through nine performances of HMS Pinafore with voice intact, but there was an inevitable collapse.

Rest. Give them a tube map and send them forth - its easy. (Make certain you tell them to turn the right way on the tube lines. You are NOT going to work.)

Rest. I mean it. You'll stay sick if you don't.

Bugger the shelves. Or better yet, let your houseguests build them for you while you loll about on your non-couch and give orders. We all know Robbie knows how to paint and use a drill.

I would make you soup and tea if I was there and build those damned shelves for you so you could sit and get better.

Strep is nothing to mess with.

Dude, get better quick. 'Cause I don't want me no strep throat.

ACK. OdeK. Feel better, please.

On the upside, you might try contacting a few local sound effects recording engineers for a quick voiceover job. I'm sure there's a sound effect CD out there somewhere just begging for track 42: "Goose Farting in Fog".

Oh, damn.
What does one eat when they've got strep? Want me to bring you some chicken soup? Ready-made Sainsbury, of course, because you don't need to keel over dead from my cooking on top of everything else. I don't think Connie and Fi would forgive me.

Hope you get better soon!

love, lore
