173876_toxicI was gloating a couple of weeks ago because I went in for a full allergy test panel and showed some reactions on my arm several days later. The allergist said that he only sees that in people with very good immune systems. And I hadn’t gotten sick with any of the crud going around this year.

And then hubby got sick and I gloated even harder, because he never gets sick, it’s always me who gets sick. so even though I was being nice to him I was secretly thinking, “Ha, it’s not me!”

Can you guess what happened next?

I’ve been sick since last Sunday. Started out with a nasty sore throat; now I’m pretty sure I have infected sinuses because I feel like someone hit me in the face with a cinderblock. Can’t even chew. Oh, and being up all night with the nosebleed last night, that was fun.

Things I’ve accomplished in the last week:
1. Sleeping about 16 hours a day
2. Playing Fallout 3 for the other 8 in order to take my mind off how miserable I am.

Things I haven’t accomplished in the last week:
1. Anything that’s not on the list above.

The East Bay Express ran a wordy article yesterday basically accusing of being a technological Mafia, running a protection racket for businesses who agreed to advertise with them and highlighting negative reviews for businesses who turned down the advertising offers.

Yelp’s rather terse retort basically says, “No way, you guys, advertisers still have negative reviews, and besides, your sources suck.”

Not exactly compelling.
