I'm taking the sensible route with this flu. I had yesterday off and am staying home again today. I already had Wednesday booked as annual leave, so three days off should do it. I still do a fair bit of work when I'm home (TG for laptops), so things don't fall into complete disarray when I'm away.
Of course, I have chosen the best time to be off - the weather is vile. We don't have snow like the South Island, but the forecast 'high' for today is just 9 degrees, so home is a great place to be.
So, what's with the 'Glamour puss' title? Well, you can imagine how glamorous I look! Trackies, big sweater, slippers and a nana blanket on the couch.
When I watch movies, I'm more likely to be jealous of how women look in sloppy-joes than in evening dresses. Think of how Meg Ryan still manages to look good when she's sick in You've Got Mail. I could never work out how women can dress like that and still look good! Apart from the lighting, make-up and great camera angles, of course!
Yesterday, I was slopping around the house in my sick-girl clothes and I suddenly realised I actually didn't look like a walking couch. Okay, it wasn't a sexy look, but at least I looked better than I would have a couple of years ago (which is the last time I got sick). I'm pale, I have bags under my eyes and my hair doesn't even rate a mention, but I'M NOT FAT!
And why do I have a day off tomorrow? Rugby, of course! My lovely Rongotai boys have a traditional against St Pats Silverstream; not to be missed.
