Thoughts of a sick mind

Still trying to recover from whatever the hell has gotten ahold of my immune system. Can't sleep due to a cough that one co-worker described as sounding like a crocodile's mating call. But that's alright, I'll live. Of course I'm way to damn stubborn to go to a doctor like I probably should. Why do things the easy way and get some medicine that would probably clear this up in a few days when I can just tough it out and save some money. (Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm being sarcastic or just stupid. probably a bit of both.)

So as I sit here at this machine my mind started wandering and here just some of the crap I came up with.

I was talking to a friend of mine who had started a blog but had finally stoped it since I was his only reader and he could just tell me stuff over the phone without having to write about it. He wondered why it is some blogs have so many readers while others just fade away into obscurity. I figure that in order to have readers you have to be a reader. When I started this it was so i ould comment on a friends blog, and at the begining it was just a few close friends who read mine. I was discovered by Joy after a few months on here. But I also go into a habit back then (that BM shared with me) of sometiems just hitting the Next Blog button on the top of the screen and seeing what else was out there. If I liked what I came across I would comment on it, and maybe even go back and comment again later. Sometimes these folks would stop by my blog to see who the heck this wierdo was just randomly commenting on thier blog. Soemtimes they stayed on. Sometimes I'd follow links from other bloggers to people they liked, sometimes someone would follow someone elses link to me. For a few people I am thier only reader, and I'm glad that they stay on despite this. I guess what I found is that blogging is a 2 way street, if you don't take the time to read others they won't take the time to read you. Not that having only one reader is bad, sometimes it's a lot more personal that way. I have met a lot of people I consider friends on this blogland, and even if they someday leave, as so many have, I'm glad I got to be a small part of thier lives for a while. And that they were a part of mine as well.

My X-mas shopping was almost done, but it seems like everytime I'm near the end I come up with someone else to buy for. I'm not mad about this, I'm just worried I won't have enough money to finish. Yes it's holiday stress, but I can live with it and it's worth it to see peoples faces when they open thier gifts. My problem is I love giving people gifts so I'm having a hard time not giving them early.

Between this sickness and holiday work I haven't got to see much of those freinds who I normally get to visit. I feel so withdrawn. Seems like all I do is get up, go to work, come home, take Ny-Quil, and go to sleep just so I can do it again tom. I hate that.

If you haven't seen the brilliance of INVADER ZIM I strongly suggest you go rent it. Yes it's a cartoon, but it's funny as hell. Everyone should get to meet GIR.

Bacon rules.

After looking around seems I'm not the only one having trouble getting time to post this season.

I miss Gama and Kitten. Shame they had to go. Hope thier doing well. If any of you have kept in contact with them via E-mail let them know I said hi.

Oh, and Joy I've found a way to download the attachment so I'll give you and update as soon as I get a chance to read it.


Well, the Ny-Quil seems to be kicking in, guess I'll go lay down and see if I can get some sleep. Hope everyone's doing good and I'll try and get back on soon.
Peace.

I agree with you, blogging is a two way street. You only get readers by becoming a reader. It definatly does not happen overnight, I find it takes months to establish longer if you stick to yourself.

Isn't Nyquil wonderful??? I always get hyper-crazy when I take it- fun! Of course, this has caused ALL of my past roommates, parents included, to forbid me its use in their presence. (They claim that though my 'Nyquil weirdness' is amusing, its still too scarily peppy). On the upside, my best college english papers were all written when I had colds. :)

It seems like everyone is getting sick- I have a deadly cough too. And my head is about to burst open. Anyway, as far as blogging- I mean, for most of my blogging months you've been my only commenter. At certain point you just have to think about why are you blogging. For instance, one of the main reasons I blog is to let my feelings out, it's almost like my diary. And to see a comment is like an extra specail treat to me. Anyway, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
