So, I stayed over at my Wife’s last night.
We both slept pretty well.

It’s raining today, so I’m just relaxing before our big trip tomorrow.
The only bad part is that I’ll be waking up around 6:30 or 7 AM, but at least it’s for a fun reason.

So, I woke up this Morning and my Wife showed me the Newspaper. The Ottawa Citizen had somehow managed to post Articles about H1N1 in almost EVERY freakin’ section of Saturday’s Paper.
I was expecting to read that Jon got the H1N1 Flu from one of Odie’s wet kisses.

But seriously, I just wanna say one thing though.
Shut the fuck up!

In this day in age, with the Internet, TV News, Radio etc, there’s no need to smother Newspaper readers with News of H1N1. We get it, thank you. No need to mentally & visually rape us

Let me summarize all the reports, as a kind gesture to my fellow readers.

1. There’s a CHANCE that the H1N1 Flu will hit at SOME point during the upcoming Flu season.
Good news though, there’s a Vaccine for it. We just don’t know what the fuck it’s gonna do to you, and we’re not sure who to give it to.

2. No cause for alarm though, people are standing by, to direct you elsewhere in the hopes you get better, or at least not sue them or die.

3. As far as prevention goes, just wash your hands, avoid contact with sick people. If need be, go to work or the Hospital wearing a Mask. Better yet, just wander down a dark isolated Street with a Mask. You’ll be fine.

Long story short, I don’t care what kind of Medical background these so called “Experts” have, fact is, you know SHIT about what’s gonna happen. You’re better off trying to bring Nostradamus back to life and seeing what he has to say about it.

Bottom line is, it’s my personal belief that it’s been extremely blown out of proportion. Sure, a few people might get sick and/or die from the Flu. It happens every single year. The only difference this year is that the Media, and the World Health Organization (WHO) are putting a different spin on it. It’s gonna create mass fear (more than now) and that’ll cause more problems than the actual illness itself.

So, just relax. If you get the Flu, DON’T panic. Just do what you normally do to get better.

Whatever you do, don’t refer to it as Swine Flu.
It gives Pigs a bad name or something.

Stay healthy!

After three days of nice weather, rain’s set to return for a few days.

I went to the Doctor’s today. I always feel kinda awkward in Waiting Rooms. Surrounded by sick people, plus Doctors etc. So far, I haven’t had Swine Flu, so thumbs up to that at least.

As usual, the waiting lasted longer than my actual appointment. It has always drove me nuts making appointments. I never get to see Doctors or anyone like that at the specific time.

So why even set times anymore?
You should be able to call up & say that you want to see the Doctor on a certain day or evening. Not enough Doctors work at Night or Weekends, by the way, at least in my personal experience. More Doctors should work Weekends or Evenings. It’d be MUCH easier for people with jobs then. While you’re at it, do the same for Banks too.
I don’t trust online Banking.
You shouldn’t be doing Personal Financial stuff the same way that you use to look at Porn.
Not that I look at Porn.
I’m married, & married men don’t need porn, right?


Anyways, there’s my 2 cents worth.

Alright, moving on…
Now that the rain’s upon us, I’ll probably stay home tonight and relax. I’m hoping that my Wife will want to watch another episode of America’s Got Talent that I recorded over the past few weeks. That’s a pretty fun show actually. The early shows in the season remind me of The Gong Show.

Besides that, I have no other plans for tonight.
