Thanks. It's just my annual cold, but it really seemed to hit hard this year. Even had to take yesterday off work, just to be miserable. Total unfair usage of a day off, y'know?

slcboston
10-28-2009, 07:39 PM
well, at least is was a cold, and not the dreaded swine flu. We've got some cases in the schools here, and let me tell you, I'm trying not to give in to the hype and all...

but it's disconcerting they're being so slow with the vaccine.

Cella
10-28-2009, 07:40 PM
are you getting the vaccine?

slcboston
10-28-2009, 07:48 PM
I won't be, no, but I will make sure my daughter does - IF it ever becomes available around here. she's already had her yearly flu shot courtesy of the school, and they are trying to become a distribution point for the H1N1 shot .... but that requires having the vaccine in hand.

Cella
10-28-2009, 07:49 PM
i have mixed feeling on it for us.


he's so young and we're not around other kids too much, so I think we may pass on it. If he were in school though, it would be a different matter.

LaurieD
10-28-2009, 08:02 PM
We're in school. H1N1 is in our area. We're not getting shot.

slcboston
10-28-2009, 08:11 PM
I figure if it becomes available, I'd just as soon she has it rather than not. Same reason she gets her flu shot every year. I'd rather take the preventative step than have her sick.

Especially after last year, when she didn't get her shot, and was sick twice. Not fun.

DeleyanLee
10-28-2009, 08:13 PM
We've got H1N1 in our neighborhood too. Someone my daughter works with, it's gone through her entire family and, while it was hard to shake, coworker says that it was pretty much like any other flu and she doesn't understand what the big deal was. Only difference, she said, was that the boss didn't argue about her not coming in like they do when it's the normal flu.

As a health-care worker, if the vaccine gets here, I'll probably get one because it's noted if you don't. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't.

LaurieD
10-28-2009, 08:19 PM
The medical community is a bit of a soapbox for me, but keeping it simple, I'm leary of anything that is considered "standard treatment" and used as blanket treatment for the community in general -- past lessons learned and whatnot.

slcboston
10-28-2009, 08:20 PM
I don't intend to bother with it for me, either. :)

But my little one's a different story.

It's probably moot. I expect if she's going to get it she'll get it before the vaccine becomse available anyway.

slcboston
10-28-2009, 08:21 PM
and I understand that.... but you do get your kids their regular vaccinations, right Laurie?

Cella
10-28-2009, 08:23 PM
I have a friend who is pregnant, well, they all are, but they're getting the shot b/c there have been many preg. women who have died from this H1N1 thing.

Cella
10-28-2009, 08:24 PM
I've skipped on a couple. He'll get them later, I just didn't think he needed them w/in the first 24hrs of life.

LaurieD
10-28-2009, 08:25 PM
Our school had a policy in effect when H1N1 first hit our area -- any student with any unexplained cough, sneeze, stomach upset, sore throat, and/or fever was to stay home from school until they were 24 hours without symptoms. Any siblings of any suspected infected students were to stay home as well.

About a month later, when my Ms. Girl came down with whatever flu went through the school last month they had removed the policy because by the time anyone exhibits flu symptoms they've been contagious for at least 24 hours before the symptoms appeared.

And as the receptionist said, everybody's pretty much been exposed to it already. (It's a rather small school)

LaurieD
10-28-2009, 08:29 PM
and I understand that.... but you do get your kids their regular vaccinations, right Laurie?

Yeah -- the standard childhood vaccines.

slcboston
10-28-2009, 08:36 PM
Yeah -- the standard childhood vaccines.

ok then.... I was all set to hand you your tinfoil hat if you turned out to be one of those "vaccines are government conspiracies" type people

:roll:

slcboston
10-28-2009, 08:37 PM
and vaccinations are a funny thing for us, because my daughter got her first two years of vaccinations overseas. It means she has that little smallpox or whatever scar on her arm, as well as a shot for something that will throw off the standrard TB test for the rest of her life.

I have to advise every doctor we go to about it. :)

LaurieD
10-28-2009, 08:43 PM
I'll take the tinfoil hat, they sparkle so prettily in the sun, but no, I'm not a government conspiracy theorist.

After a 15 year career as a nurse my opinion of the medical community is a bit jaded. I think most of the time "standard treatment" works for the majority, however every human body is different and somtimes the standard is the wrong thing. In addition, my family is riddled with autoimmune disease and I'm more than a little leery of new vaccines of any kind. I put off the chicken pox vaccine with my kids until they HAD to get it to go to school.

slcboston
10-28-2009, 09:04 PM

The bad joke:

This old couple couldn't make it on social security so the wife decides she's going to go pull tricks in the red light district. The husband isn't too happy, but she goes off. That night she comes home and cheerifully announces that she made $25.50.

"Who gave you the fifty cents?" hubby demands.

"They all did."

That's one of my favorite memories too. We'd have a big bowl of mixed nuts and a little bowl beside it for the shells, and the nutcracker too. We actually had a wooden nutcracker that looked like a toy soldier from The Nutcracker but it sucked, so we usually just used the nothing-fancy metal one.

One of my grandmothers kept one out year round with the little metal nutcracker thing. My grandfather and I used to play restaurant with them. During the holidays a bowl of round candies would appear - I think the stores call it Old Fashioned Holiday Mix or some such - but you couldn't eat the candy - it was all stuck together. :Shrug: And ribbon candy, she used to put out ribbon candy, which was always fresh and yummy.

the rumballs I had even as a kid, I believe had alcohol. I only think this because the grownups kept telling me not to eat them but I snuck them anyway (my spellcheck is telling me snuck isn't a word?) ok ok, I sneaked them (that sounds even worse :rant: why is that irritating me so much!?!?)

while I'm on the subject (and queen) here is my list of words that should be combined:


Lastnight
Icecream
Rumballs

once upon a time, someone remarked that "slc" should stand for "silly looking camel" ... or maybe it was "little"... but either way.

So for quite some time, I was a camel.

Then someone said something about camels being desert sheep - which, incidentally, I've never actually verified, so from there it just kind of segued.

DeleyanLee
11-01-2009, 08:41 PM
yup, entirely a slave to the muse.

The entire concept behind Nano befuddles me :D

There's several concepts behind NaNo, from those people who worship at its altar have told me.

1. It gives those people who always say "I want to write a novel" one less excuse not to do it.

2. It gives those writers who want a kick in the pants and get writing again an excuse to do it.

3. It gives college students an excuse to blow off midterms, studying and other assignments.

4. It gives writers a chance to socialize with other writers while striving toward a writing goal.

5. It gives writers an opportunity to learn how fast they can write and what quality they get when they do write that fast.

6. "It's addicting."

And there's probably a few more, but those are the ones I've heard.

I did it last year for reason #2. It did get me writing again, which was nice. I didn't like it because the push for word count and only word count is one of those things a writer can get "addicted" to and forget the other things that are necessary for a good story. (Been there, done that, recycled the t-shirt.) It gives people a mindset that slopping down any set of words onto the page counts as good writing, which I don't agree with. I mean, what's the point of writing 50K or so and then having to completely rewrite every word because they suck? Just seems like more work to me, but many people seem to like it.

NaNo has built into a massive social function for writers and the writing minded, though (even though their website is one of the slowest things on the internet during Nov). I wasn't too impressed with my local NaNo opportunities last year, but I understand good friendships and even marriages have come out of other groups.

For those who like it, it's great. I understand the mindset. I've just learned that I don't really agree with it much.

I've thought this myself. November is just so terribly busy as it is, I can only think that December would be a worse month to try and get MORE done. But like you said, people like all kinds of things and that's fine. At least it offers some kind of structure with a short term goal, right? :D

So far I've got obituaries, some video transcript and a small scene. Ah well, if it doesn't work. I'll toss it and start over.

so you're going to use actual obits and blog entries and such to piece together a story?

wow...that sounds difficult

6th form English at my school (or maybe 7th) had a creative presentation project along those lines, Ellefire. Not blogs, because I'm ancient. But we had to piece together a presentation including things like newspaper articles, diaries... um... I forget what else. All made up, of course, or it'd not be creative. It was pretty fun, except for the part where I had to spend a whole night making little leprechaun dolls. That was pure tedium.


well, that's mostly good.

I hate to say this, but I wasn't aware you were away. Where did you go?

I thought I'd spend the first week of my study break at my mother's. Where the internet is dial-up and the computers die when I look at them. It seemed a good way to get a lot of studying done. Except for little distractions like being sick, and a job interview, it might even have worked.
