flu bug marathon

i have the flu. and have for 3 days. it came on sometime on saturday as a sore throat. and then became, well, the flu. i stayed home from work yesterday, went in for 2 hours this morning and then came home and crawled right back into the pajamas and onto the couch.

the only good thing about this is that i've completed these:
mom's belated (like by 2.5 months) birthday gift. bed socks of a design by her request,
just in time for the 22 degree weather they are having....ugh.

and an action shot...sort of....pretend i'm walking......
disregard the tissues on the carpet. i've spent two days propped in the corner of the couch engaged in a Lord of the Rings DVD marathon....what do you expect? only some of those tissues are from an actual cold. the rest are from when various bad things happen to various fantastic characters. yes, i've seen the movies before. yes, i know what happens. yes yes and yes to all the rest of your questions. i get somewhat...involved...in fantasty fiction. i can't help it - the men are wearing breast plates and have swords!

alright - i could rant about how 90% of the pine trees in kamloops are dead from the pine beetle already and there's no way they can remove all the dead trees from my parents neighbourhood by the time fire season comes along this year (think heavily wooded + lots of dead trees + fire = bad)...but i can't put enough coherent sentences together to tell the whole story. suffice to say - lots of trees dead. entire once beautifully wooded parks are treeless and barren. it's really really sad. i'm really really sad.

back to the couch for me. those hobbits haven't finished their journey and they won't with me just sitting here...
