Groan....

Cough, splutter, gasp, cough, cough, cough, sneeze, gasp, groan.......

I have crawled through the day at school and am now as sick as a parrot. I have been asleep on that couch since I managed to flop onto it. I even slept through the new CSI episode and I actually don't care. My head is trying to detach itself from my shoulders and I am off to bed in a sec.

I just stopped in to say that I am delighted so many of you have asked me questions, and as soon as the world stops heaving from left to right in an out of body way, I will be answering them. My mother even phoned to ask which one I was doing first. She is as intrigued with them as I am.

And just so you are thoroughly amused......

I took David to go and have our passport photos taken yesterday. His was stunning. Me?? Oh. My. Sainted. Aunt. I looked at it and thought, oh I can't be bothered. It will do. And then my friends looked at it and had a hard time keeping a straight face. And then, I took it to work. Well, when the friends there had stopped laughing and wiped the tears away, they said that I looked 298 years old. And as though I had had a stroke. All that was missing was the dribble. Hmmmm. I said "So I am guessing here that you guys think I need to go and get another one then???" They all sat there and nodded before they fell about again.

So I did. Me. All sick and weak and feeble. It was worse. The man at the post office laughed. And said they may call to verify it is really me. I looked at him as though he had 3 heads, and said " Please tell me WHY anyone would try to send this photo if they were trying to assume anyone's identity??" He agreed that I could have a point.

I have a future on Crime Watch it seems. And who is the IDIOT who decided that we could no longer smile in our passport photos????? Twisted stern faces. I look devastating. And every passport official in the world is going to think I am evil.

Enough. I can hear my head. My pillow is calling.

Linds, I'm allowed to laugh at this one because even on my best days I never, ever take a decent picture. I feel your pain!
Now, on the serious side, I am praying you feel much better very soon.

I hope visiting your blog didn't pass this bug to you. I know it's a nasty one, but it seemed to pass within a few days!
Passport photos? Let's not go there. Mine is beyond awful.

I'm so sorry you feel so lousy! But your sense of humor comes through anyway.

I have become totally averse to having my picture taken - anywhere for anything.

I can completely relate to that story. I actually re-took my last passport picture too. Both were dreadful. Guess I must think I look better than that. Hmmmm!

So sorry to hear that you are still under the weather. Good thing you had all your party fun last weekend. My vote is for the bed and good hot chicken soup! Hope you are better soon.

As usual you amaze me as you leave me chuckling and smiling that you can see life so funny even when feeling terrible. I appreciate that about you very much, Linds.!!!

I'm with you on the passport photos. They are so terrible - just like the drivers license photo. What IS it about them anyway??

I do hope you get better very soon!!
