Looking at anagrams for "Tyll is supreme" give some funny results.

 

http://www.wordsmith.org/anagram/anagram.cgi?anagram=tyll+issupreme&t=1000&a=n

 

I also like the anagrams for "headphonestyll"

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/630723/themed-monthly-avatar-committee-tmac-discussion-thread

 

A few I like are:

 

Tells Handy Hope

 

Shade The Pollen

 

Old Shy Elephant

 

All in fun of course, Tyll!

Q:  Hey Warren, where the heck are you?

 

A: Nowhere, really. (Click to show)

I've [largely] been in bed.  Even though I had made it through the entire show (CES), that sea of germs inevitably overcame the biological wonder that is my immune system.  It all began the Saturday after the show...

I came home and immediately went to bed as I felt under the weather.  That began a five-day odyssey through every known flu symptom you've ever heard of (and probably some that you haven't).  And yes, this includes all of the truly interesting symptoms that involve bodily fluids.  eek.gif  As if that weren't enough, I also became extremely weak over the course of those five days as I didn't eat anything (the nausea made it hard to keep anything down). 

And then, there was the fever.  On one hand, I scored a new personal best having reached 106ºF (106.5ºF to be precise).  Woo hoo!  OTOH, I experienced an entirely new level of delerium as a result.  confused_face_2.gif  I won't get into the increasingly ridiculous world views I adopted in quick succession during this fever, but let's just say that driver8's dreams pale in comparison.

BTW, I used to think it was slightly comical that people used to die of Influenza.  I no longer hold that opinion.

So after a good week of this flu from hell, things get even better.  And by better I mean worse.  mad.gif  Turns out that I had developed a secondary bacterial pneumonia on top of the Influenza.  Wow, I've never had a pneumonia before... looks like another first for me!  By now, I'm sicker than you can possibly imagine, and taking a course of antibiotics to help manage the pneumonia.

I'm also starting to get pretty cranky as I haven't had a good nights' sleep in some time.  I'd try, only to be awakened every 30 minutes or so because my lungs suddenly felt the need to invert themselves, which would then necessitate me violently coughing them into submission.  This is largely how I spent my second week after CES.

Now we're in the third week after CES, and I find myself in uncharted territory.  While my flu/pneumonia based suffering is FINALLY being put in-check, I am experiencing a host of new conditions that frankly don't thrill me.  Between an eye infection, an ear infection, and various lingering symptoms, I still feel pretty darn crappy.  I've also [and involuntarily] lost about 10% of my body weight over the past few weeks.

Oh wait, I forgot about the best part!  Because of the nausea and the respiratory difficulties, I have been unable to enjoy coffee and cigarettes for nearly three weeks now.  I know this doesn't sound like a big deal - especially for those of you who don't drink coffee or smoke.  But I can assure you that the detrimental side of caffeine and nicotine withdrawal is very real, and very hard to deal with.

In short, I've been nowhere special.  Just in my own personal hell.  frown.gif


Q:  Are you coming back anytime soon?
 

A: Of course I am. (Click to show)

It might take a little while for me to get back to full strength, but I'll be around more and more over the next week or so.

In the meantime, thanks to everyone who has been asking about me.  I really do appreciate the thoughts.  I know I've been slow with the PM responses, but I'll get back in the saddle soon.

 

Having said all that, looks I missed out on quite a lot here.  Wow, even Tyll's been making an appearance.  smile.gif

@trolldragon, for all the nearly four years I live in Moscow, I've never been charged any sort of customs charge. Apparently, from what my content self managed to check, a name on a specific address have an allocated allowance to receive items from abroad, before being charge any fees. I don't really understand it myself, but to say that i'm not grateful is kind of shallow.

@warren, I'm sorry I haven't asked about you, although you have been in my mind. Hope you get well soon, since not able to indukge in coffeh goodness is suffering! D:

Holy crap, over 106°F? That's a close call...I was up to 103.5 when I had pneumonia a few years back, along with withdrawal symptoms from many bad habits, and it was hell. So I am glad you are pulling through. Here's a caretaker for you.....biggrin.gif

WARREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

 

omg redface.gif get well soon! I knew something was wrong...... Times like this I wish I could lend out my immune system (I MAYBE get sick once every 2 or 3 years, but then its bounce off the walls for 3 days.... ) And thats ignoring my perpetual sinusitis/pollen allergies (texa 10mg every day forever, then I'm good even in spring) 

 

SIGH!!! I really hope you get well... the worst part about being sick is your too dierdie kak (Afrikaans for Through the sh*+) and your ENT system is so screwed you can't even listen to music while you lie in bed like a date (snip - just too insensitive) victim. 

 

Sound like when my mom had the Tokyo flu or something? When I was 7... I had no clue what was cooking. 

 

But not to steal the attention, I really hope you get better, I kinda need my partner in crime :)

 

 

Oh and if you ever wanted to quit smoking - congrats. Otherwise - your gonna enjoy that smoke I'm guessing.

Glad to see you back. I figured something had to be up, though I was thinking it was that you were busy with something. I guess being slammed with a rogues gallery of illnesses would definitely take a person offline for a while.

 

Hope you continue getting better. Like WiR3D, I also have a pretty amazing immune system, so I also wish I could loan you that for a while. By our powers combined, both our immune systems could probably shield you from anything, even plague. biggrin.gif
