Dudes. Being sick sucks. I've had a fever for, like, 2 days and I just slept for 13 hours straight. There should be a law - this shit needs to happen during the week, not on weekends.

If you need me, I'll be the one surrounded by tissues clutching a NyQuil bottle like a homeless dude holds on to a bottle of Thunderbird for dear life.

Oh no! Get better... Drink lots of water too!

Absolutely lots of water. You'll need it to chase that yucky Ny-quil. Given the choice, I might opt for the T-bird.

Get well soon. With your luck, you'll probably be fine by Monday - just in time for another exciting round of conferences.

Poor baby get well soon. Rest, plenty of liquids and a loving wife to soothe your aches and pains now thats the ticket to wellness. :)

Ugh... I'm so sorry! I hope you feel better soon.

Feel better soon!

By the way, I wrote an entry about Bitacle. People are pretty pissed off about it, and I've joined the fray.

Lots of water and juice! And rest, of course. Feel better soon!!

Being sick is Le Poo. Get some rest.

Sorry you're on the down-low...
No Spinach, eh!!!
Pomegranate juice, Acai juice, and Acerola juice highly recommended to help bring you back on the mend.

Feel better soon, my friend.

Anni :-)

Sorry to hear you are sick. Hope you feel better soon!

Posted by: donna at September 24, 2006 01:52 PM

Poor Chris. Feel better soon. And try not to drive your wife batty like my DH does when he's feeling under the weather... :-)

I hate it when I'm so sick that my *skin* hurts. That really sucks.

If you're not vegetarian (and I don't think you are), don't discount the healing effects of chicken soup. Preferrably homemade, but definitely not Campbell's. Go for organic if you can. It really does help!

Drink lots of fluids and just let the dent start to form in the couch.

Hope you feel better soon.

Posted by: wn at September 24, 2006 02:29 PM

Aw, poor baby!!! Get well soon and all that crap :)

Posted by: Kate at September 24, 2006 02:49 PM

Dude that sucks. Feel better soon. But um....don't breath in this direction okay? Thanks. :)

feel better soon.

Posted by: suze at September 24, 2006 04:36 PM

Get well soon!

Posted by: Katherine at September 24, 2006 04:37 PM

Wow. Hope you feel better soon!

If I knew where to send it, I'd send chicken soup. If you weren't vegetarian, that is. I make some damn fine chicken soup.

Posted by: Jen at September 24, 2006 05:23 PM

Feel better!

Posted by: Maribeth at September 24, 2006 05:49 PM

True, though the new lame pto policy took some of the fun out of being sick during the week... ;)

I hope it passes quickly.

Posted by: Leah at September 24, 2006 05:59 PM

Get well quick, buddy! Mine lasted exactly 48 hours, so I hope yours is on the way out, too.

Posted by: shelley at September 24, 2006 06:33 PM

That sucks, man. I know just how you feel, and wish you a speedy recovery!

Posted by: Heather at September 24, 2006 07:35 PM

They do make that nasty stuff in pill form, you know. Just as nose-clearing and coma-inducing, without the disgusting Nyquil flavor.

Posted by: kara marie at September 24, 2006 07:56 PM

Hope you feel better soon, dude. I would recommend chicken soup but since you're vegetarian - just something spicy and yummy should make you feel a tad bit better. And smoothies! Definitely smoothies!

Also, have you tried Vitamin Water? I think I'm the last person in America to try it and I'm in deep like with the stuff. It has electrolytes and isn't too flavory.

Okay, I will shut up being annoying with suggestions. Feel better! Soon!

Posted by: Sam at September 24, 2006 08:30 PM

Feel better soon, buddy!! Oh, and could ya please stay off the keyboard so you're not spreading any of those germs to us???

Rest and liquids...and NyQuil, copius amounts of NyQuil...


Posted by: Evil Genius at September 24, 2006 08:34 PM

Lots of fluids, man. Get better soon.

Posted by: Spring at September 24, 2006 09:43 PM

Bummer. Though sleeping for 13 hours straight doesn't sound too bad...

Posted by: SMIT at September 24, 2006 09:43 PM

Get well soon Chris! I just got over that crap a few weeks ago, and it was nasty.

Posted by: MrsJoseGoldbloom at September 24, 2006 09:48 PM

I just got over being sick myself, so I am sending you some healthy vibes right now. feel better soon man!

Posted by: kristied at September 24, 2006 09:54 PM

did you ever watch Denis Leary's No Cure For Cancer? Mmmm, NyQuil. I love that giant fucking Q. ;)

Posted by: Dawn (webmiztris) at September 24, 2006 11:23 PM

ummm yeah was there last week with the opposite version of this (ie no sleep and fevered convulsions...) I say you do what I did... take Monday and Tuesday off anyways :)

Posted by: stinkerbell at September 25, 2006 03:06 AM

Yuck. You totally have what I experienced last week. Sorry :(
