Last week my partner at work was out with flu like symptoms. I kept joking with him: “Hey, it’s probably swine flu, haha!” And he would argue with me: “It’s not swine flu, haha!”
Well, now I’m sick, and according to expert medical sources… it’s definitely swine flu. Haha.
So I’ve set up camp in my bed, sleeping 18 hours a day and groggily watching old movies on Netflix. Otto Preminger’s Laura is available for streaming, FYI. I also reread Grant Morrison’s All Star Superman, which is what I wish the early 90s “Death of Superman” story could have been. Probably Morrison’s best work next to We3 (which only wins out because it’s about cute animals).
Basically swine flu isn’t that different from regular flu, except I’m tired as hell. Like, mononucleosis tired. I was hoping to use this sick time to catch up on some video games I need to play, but my fingers are too lethargic. I also seem to be having some crazy hallucinations, but I think that’s just my brain trying to compensate for lack of exercise. Which is fine. I have no qualms about telling Batman I love him when he hovers at the foot of my bed.
Also in swine related news: please boycott Hormel forever and ever.

It’s official: trackbacks and pingbacks are the new spam. I write for seven blogs, and all of them have seen a ridiculous jump in trackback traffic, all related to some drug call Tramadol. What the hell is Tramadol?! Someone please tell me, because I’ll feel embarrassed if I ask my little brother and he laughs at me for not knowing.

I’ve found a grand total of two blogging applications on the Android Marketplace. One, called wpToGo, totally crashes everytime I run it. The other, PostGet, is what I’m writing this on right now. It functions quite well, but the current release doesn’t support tags (and I’m all about tags). I can easily embed pictures of my dog, which is a cool bonus.
So now when I’m out somewhere and say “hey, look at the hilarious letter spacing on that road sign,” I’ll be able to take a picture and post it on my blog that no one reads. It’s like magic.

I think the best part about using Twitter is logging on and seeing a celebrity wants to follow you. It’s a wonderful equalizer.
