Today I got quite a few text messages as as well as a well timed call (well timed as in I was asleep. Yes sarcasm. But I’m still happy) when I didn’t show up.
I felt very much loved. April said that everyone was worried about me because there were a “few more potential cases” and they’d thought I was one of them. I’m not. No fever means I’m in the clear. Carmaine called wondering where I was, and Jen told me to “go to the doctor deary” which I neglected to do. Dani so tactfully said “OMG ARE YOU DYING?” To which I replied “Lol no. Thanks?” Unfortunately the timing of my reply coincided with her subsequent “I just heard you’re sick. Are you feeling okay?” So, to clarify, Dani sweetheart I’m fine.
I thought that I should express my gratitude at the amount of concern people had (or maybe I’m blowing it up. But I’ll go ahead and assume people worried).
But, seriously, all concerns should go to Dom. He’s the one tanking it out at home with the Tami Flu.
Right, so I took a day off school on the basis that:
1. I only had 2 classes, none of which were SACs (no messy forms to handle)
2. I wasn’t feeling too crash hot this morning and didn’t want to infect anyone.
3. I need more time to prepare for my SACs (but seriously the first 2 were the more important ones).
So today I didn’t waste my precious time. I caught myself up with Merlin, I slept in soundly, I did Legal notes and I did English notes, and you may have noticed I revamped my blog. Thanks to Carolyn for her contributions on the music player. Hopefully my choice of music doesn’t put anyone off (it shouldn’t; I’m awesome).
A lot of schools have closed down, but MacRob hasn’t, which is infuriatingly stupid. I hope our school will see the danger soon.
Otherwise, all is well. I hope everyone else has been keeping healthy.
My stats spiked up in the last few days because people had been coming in to read about the swine flu. There is obviously nothing to read, so I’m sorry about that, but the stats are nice.
MHS has been closed down for a week (I’ve heard this from 2 rather reliable sources. One of them dates a MHS boy the other IS a MHS boy).
MacRob, however, is not.
Christina and I were in Chinese when I got the news from Catherine, and Christina prompted complained, “Why can’t we just get some Yr 9s to go pash some MHS guys so we can get a week off school?”
Political incorrectnesss and just plain meanness aside, I agree with her.
MHS is PRACTICALLY MacRob, disease-wise. If they get closed down why can’t we? Sure, they have 6 confirmed cases and we have 2 awaitng test results and me who is feeling a bit feverish, but still.
The one good thing that’s come out of this partial closure is that at least Flinders St in the mornings won’t be crowded by juniors and their boyfriends/wannabe boyfriends/wannabes.
So let mercy come
And wash away…
What I’ve done…
I’ve gone and imported this blog onto my notes on Facebook. So the traffic should get a bit busier, I hope. I made it so that you can read my post, but to comment you’d have to come here. Ingenius, no?
By the way, that was “What I’ve Done” by Linkin Park.
In other news, we got our new internet installed finally, 1 and a half months late. We’re now with Telstra Bigpond. It comes with a wireless thing so when we get a new computer and when I get a laptop I can totally just use the internet from my room. How awesome!
And, Dom had gone get himself tested for swine flu. Results in a few days. Hope he doesn’t have it, the poor bugger.
That’s all for now.
P.S. Catherine I really really do love you for what you wrote.
I have avoided any mention of the Swine Flu since it came out because I was hoping at least one blog wouldn’t mention it somewhere. But hey look, I fold.
MHS has 2 guys who have Swine Flu. Apparently it came from the Junior Social (which OF COURSE I was NOT at) where a MGC girl who has it went there, made out with…well okay the point is 2 MHS guys have it. And I’m rather worried because MHS is quite closely linked with MacRob (take it how you may) and yeah, what’s gonna happen now? Plus, you may remember, I was hanging out with DOM and MHS BOY yesterday. Am I infected?
