McK, you gave your virus to me. Blegh. It must have been that marathon make-out session we had.

Or not. yikes. My "sense of humor" has gone on leave, along with my senses of smell, taste, and non-phlegm-y lungs.

I've always found that listening to Showaddywaddy brings back all the energy to your legs.

Hmm, twitching claws. You obviously need more whisky.

McKoala said...

Ssssh, Aerin. You'll make 'em all jealous.

Whirl, if only it were in a good way. Glad you're back!

Fairy, absolutely. More whisky.

Eucalyptus oil in a hot bath!

Precie said...

Well. This might not be a fun suggestion, but perhaps it's time to seen professional medical attention. Get thee to a doctor. And to some antibiotics. It sounds like you might have a sinus infection by now.

Poor drunken, twitchy, sleepy and possibly a little stinky little koala bear.

Ohhhhh! I haven't been checking in with anybody - I didn't know.

My remedy: sleeping and wallowing, cold tablets, lots of juice, toast, and hot tea. And time. But the wallowing part is the most important thing.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

You took Ello's template and now she's naked.
Maybe you're in delirium?
;-)

Hope you feel better!!!

McKoala said...

Ooo-err. Naked Ello. That's a must see. Serves her right for calling me stinky.

sylvia said...

Hang on, getting a virus means you receive naked minions? Is that right?

Breathing steam and *cough* eucalyptus oil helps clear the head.

I hope that the whiskey/sleep/trashy novel application helped! Glad to hear you are feeling better!

Perish the thought.

Aha, so I should be breathing in the eucalyptus, not eating it. Silly koala!
