The dreaded lurgy has me in thrall
I've been running a fever all evening, and took to my bed about 7 p.m. Woke up shivering to beat the band, so I got up, had a glass of water, am now drinking a mug of hot tea, and I'll finish with a mug of Theraflu with an added shot of white rum before I head back to bed. Guaranteed to help you sleep!
As a result, blogging will be sparse tonight. I'll put up more posts in the morning.
(If you're wondering what 'the dreaded lurgy' means, it's from a famous Goon Show episode first broadcast in 1954, 'Lurgi Strikes Britain'. It never fails to crack me up. It seems insane to think that the show was broadcast 60 years ago . . . )
