THE SKY IS FALLING!

Ok, so I totally do NOT have time for a real post.  It's mid-term time at school, my house is in imminent danger of being taken over by roving gangs of dog-hair balls and if I don't do laundry today we will all be wearing snow-pants and halloween costumes tomorrow since they are the only clean clothes in the house BUT...

I just had to share this bit of public health information with you because I am a giver.  Do you have swine flu?  Go here to find out.

Actually this whole flu thing is a little worrisome to me because Grandmother IS ninety-three years old and I'm not sure she would survive a case of normal flu let alone the piggy variety.  I gave her some Purell and make her use it whenever we've been out and about but I suspect she thinks I am overreacting.  Which I probably am but better safe than sorry.  I'm not ready to lose her just yet, especially not to something called SWINE FLU for fuck's sake!!!

A gazillion thanks to Suburban Correspondent for finding that little internet jewel.

Darn it! When you're done with laundry, do you wanna come over and panic with me? ;-)

I love that test. It's perfect.

I'm getting tired of the media's coverage of this. And by the way? My MIL is LOVING it. She watches it all day long and then tells me all about it when I get home. Several times.

Too funny. I just opened your email and realized I was reading your site. ;-)

I just asked the sneezy guy I sleep with if he had a fever. He said, (and not very nicely either), "I don't have the swine flu."

I'm ready to stick a bottle of Purell up his...nose.
