Well, it's been a time I've been writing in here - the weeks before x-mas I had so much to do at work, and after x-mas it was all the same (plus end of semester at university) so I didn't had so much time left for fun or recreation. In fact I spent the few less hours with playing WoW just to get all the work out of my head - if you're starting to dream of your work at night you definitely work too much
And now to something completely different - the every-day catastrophes you're able to see now at any time. If you have a one and a half hour way to work like me you're meeting lots of people in the mass transport media like bus, train or underground. As the weather in Germany's been very bad the last weeks many of those people are sick, coughing and sneezing all the time. Well, but not enough with the possible ways of infection - I'm working in the biggest Vodafone branch office in Germany (at Düsseldorf) and many of my colleagues are sick, too. All coughing and sneezing, as you may have guessed.
Not enough, even at university most of the people there are ill - yeah, coughing, sneezing, all the way down. And there's no activated heating system, too - I'm spending many hours in unheated rooms during the semester. In summer it's okay, but in the winter it's the best virus breeding place I know besides liquid fertilizer in a test tube.
Finally my body abandoned the field to the newest and most agressive influenza virus - I spend one week with sneezing, coughing and wishing to die. Well, my wish wasn't fulfilled, what wasn't too bad, but maybe you understand me having such a wish after several hours with rheumatic pains and no posibility to lie down without pain - oh, I forgot the shivering by the way. I'm just sounding like the worst hypochonder, and after a week with the german totally cruel daily TV program I got any right to complain (I just can't understand that there are people watching this shit voluntarily) - the program directors really seem to think that everyone being at home between 9am and 6pm just need to watch court shows, talk shows and vet documentations all the time (not to forget the shows like 'Cleaning for bachelors' etc). If I wasn't really sick I would now have burned my brains out ...
The only positive thing of this Influenza was my cat - she's been too happy with me lying at the couch all the time, so she could use me as a pillow (a thing she doesn't have the chance too often at week 'cause I'm just not at home).
Dear colleagues, please keep your influenza viruses with yourselves now, I fear loosing my mind in another week of daily TV shows
