‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

I'm Home With The Flu, And Cabin Fever Is Setting In

I woke up with the flu. Went to work at 7:30am and was told to "go home and get better." Guess I looked pretty bad.

So, I'm home with a 102 temp, feeling like crap, but bored out of my mind. I've taken to reading all my old spam mail -- you know, forwards and things sent by my students, mostly. One of them said to go to my seventh photo folder and choose the seventh photo therein and write about it. Ok...

Scary, huh? Don't worry, these aren't real witches. Just a few of my Shakespeare students before a performance of Macbeth. This was taken July 2007.

On another note, I only got seven questions from my desperate attempt to cull out the lurkers among you. Oh well. I'll answer them and post later today. So much for the whole 'question the blogger' idea. At least I tried!

Off to puke and then back to bed...lol.

Ps: Did you know Shakespeare coined the word 'puke'? Yup.


  1. What a neat picture! Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Sorry to hear about your illness and I hope it will be of short duration. Drink lots of liquids and sleep, sleep sleep. That helps.
    Thanks for the post on my blog.

  3. I LOVE Mackers! I actually have Mackers fanfic- is that sad?

    Feel better soon!!

  4. feel better soon... I'm banging my head against the wall trying to get through 1st grade curriculum... I'm gonna try having some friends and family come over and teach him.. 3:O

  5. Cool picture. I hope you get well soon!

  6. (((hugs))) Hope you feel better soon. Bed, lots of liquid, keep warm and - i know this is the hardest one, you're a mam - look after YOURSELF! I'm sure your lovely daughter will keep you fed and watered. You may not feel like eating much but it's far better to puke when you have something IN your tumy than nothing. I know, BLEUGH. Get well soon xXX

  7. I need a daily dose of Shakespeare...thanks! Hope you're feeling better soon.
