Flu and Bras

The weekend has been dedicated to Feeling Shit and nursing my Symptoms Of Imminent Illness before they tipped over into Big Bad Flu/Throat Infection*, and as such has passed in a haze.

Today, the day has been full of sunlight and melting snow. I have spent it largely in the blessed manner of an infant (albeit one that doesn't howl, and is toilet trained) by eating and sleeping, and falling asleep soon after a meal. In a way, this Illness business is almost restful, reminscent of the fantasies I had of spending a stint in hospital dozing in morphine-induced bliss (this was of course before meepettemu shattered the illusion, as my dream did not include cantenkerous old people as roomattes, nor did morphine make you vomit).

Still, despite my underlying belief that Illness on Vacation is a collosal waste of my time off, it has felt good to just collapse and do nothing. Catch up on all the rest my body craves. And to be sure, aside from the fact that Sleep Is Good, the day has been full of splendid discoveries.

1) Bras

A few days in my Whirlwind Tour of Belgrade, I took the visiting Brits to a flea market**, where tjej bought legwarmers and shineys, and I got felt up by a nice lady who sold me two bras, and sweetly told me that if i wasn't pleased with the fit I could always come back and get felt up some more exchange them.

Today I tried them on and they fit like a Bra Dream ( A Delight enhanced by the fact they cost only £3 - up yours Marks & Spencer!). Not only are they pretty and lacey, but they give perfect lift AND hold ( a fact which i have tested extensively by bouncing), and now my only burning question is should I go back and get the ones in hot pink and lime green.

2) Hair

Being ill has also meant not washing my hair for days, so imagine my gratification to discover that despite this I woke up with the best of Good Hair Days, where my cranberry locks were tumbling, and sexy and tousled in a manner that it normally takes some dedicated gay men and a lot of overpriced styling products to accomplish.

AND on top of all this joy I have discovered that the earrings tjej bought me match my sweater. Could I be any happier? Well, I could if I was healthy say, and could breathe without wheezing, and earning a decent salary in England, but that would be just nitpicking.

And to round off all this joy plans for tonight include cough, sleep, eat, and watch Alexander because it contains Angelina Jolie AND the promise of being spectacularly bad. I am looking forward to it immensely.

*although I am not in the habit of blaming people for my misfortunes, if miss_newham likes I can give it a shot

** Flea market is a slight misnomer, because the stuff in there is all new although probably got there by being smuggled and falling off the back of vans and whatnot. Still, you can find there an amazing and crazy assortment of stuff.

Sorry about the hospital fantasy. Invent a new one, with private room, and anti-sickness drugs *grin*
