Anger and a lesson in snot

I'm back in Manila now, and for reasons I probably will never admit, everything pisses me off. I have a feeling the people at home are beginning to suspect that there might be something up my nether region. This morning, I decided that I should try and manage my mounting rage. I fear that if I don't, I might lash out and break someone's face. Otherwise, I got nuthin' but love.

In more news, I'm recovering from the ravages of the Common Cold. I spent my last three days in Baguio with the flu.When my cough decided to go the distance, the depressing weather in the city decided to make a turn-around. I had my blankets up to my chin, and outside the damn birds were singing, the frickin' sun was shining, and the blasted sky was the perfect shade of ice blue. I didn't mind. Truly.

Here's some information you may have already realized for yourselves (but I'm going to write about anyway). Remember that when one is sick with the flu, it is usually best to drink plenty of fluids. I was wise to follow that advice and drank as much water as I could. Have you ever noticed that when your nose is jammed with snot, and you have water in your other breathing orifice, the effect is like drowning? It is an unpleasant, sputtering experience. Now, I am careful to blow my nose before I lift a glass of water to my mouth. Everyone should remember to do likewise.

Oh, and don't forget to wash your hands.

LOL. I feel irate most of the time when I'm down there. It's in the water methinks.

I'll keep that in mind next I get the flu. :P

Prosperous 2008 kubi!

Asian Remedies For a Nose Full of Snot: 1. Take-out sushi and put lotsa wasabe/wasabi in your kikkoman to clear the passages; 2. Eat Kimchi pure! 3. Siling Labuyo in your toyo over any Filipino food.

My solutions usually have to do with food, not medicine necessarily!

I was in your state until a few days ago. No, not the flu, the rage. Then we had the PAGASA Workshop with Nicanor Perlas (you can Google this up), highly recommended, totally unscary, not expensive (they just seek to recover transportation costs) we are planning another in Baguio but they're holding a Philippine tour, so if you're interested, Kubi, drop me a line...

What I find more unpleasant (and possibly life-threatening) is when my nose profusely bleeds while I'm asleep. This happens to me a lot... because I'm cursed. The effect is that the sticky fluid goes down my throat... and I eventually wake up because of a "drowning" feeling.

One of these days, I won't wake up... and I'll drown in my own blood. And that's why my tombstone will say.

I know, gross and morbid. I'll stop here.
