[livejournal.com profile] boymeat  and I had dinner with [livejournal.com profile] rogueboi  last night.  [livejournal.com profile] rogueboi  is my evil wonder twin of glory, and we are going to wreak havoc upon this fine city with lots of neon green and pink matching outfits.  Glitter included, of course.

We had Cuban.  I had pork.

And then came home and vomited.

Obviously, I have swine flu.

In other news, I spent the beginning of the day handing out my resume to orthodontists in the upper west side.  I have a couple of what I hope will turn out to be really good bites.  They seemed very interested and that's a good thing.

I didn't get lost, and I am starting to get a bit more feel for the area.

Which should serve me well ... until the swine flu gets me in which case it won't matter anymore 'cause I'll be dead.*/**

(*My mother actually sent me an email telling me to be careful of the pig-cold because of my immune system.  Pathetic, and amusing.  All at the same time.)

(**And if I'm dead, that's okay, cause [livejournal.com profile] naylandblake  is a zombie so I'll be able to hang out with him once I kick the bucket anyway.)

The good news is that swine flu is totally curable with treatment. The bad news is that you need to stop eating and/or making out with pigs. (Just Sayin')

Apparently, people with good immune systems get it worse.

I forgot where I read it but the immune system reacts to the flu. The better immune systems overreact and they are sicker.

PS My walk date just canceled. Arrrgghhh!!!!!

I will have to remember that.

PS: That sucks. We'll so make-up for it tomorrow. Woot!

Also, I just chatted with my friend in the lab, there are some anti-viral shots that you can take that work as a preventative- if you're interested you can ask just about any doc.

You can't get it from eating pork though (bonus for you carnivorous types) just hanging around sick swine and/or humans. Better cancel that trip to the that pig farm in Mexico...

(Psst, I know you can't get it through eating meat. That was my attempt at humor.)

People who take immunosuppresants aren't allowed to take drugs or shots that boost the immune system. It's counter-productive. I already cheat a little because I am a vitamin popper but that's about as far as I'm allowed to go. (Heck, I can't even get immunization shots.)

(I know, I know, but you're very popular and maybe someone else read it.... :P attempted mutual attempt.)

And ah, I thought that anti-viral's were different. Sorry for the useless advice.

Still though, no necking with pigs. Or Mexican-pig-farm visting. Also, birds.

theres a lot of potential jokes about *Jews and **NYC here, but I can't think of any right now.

*as a Jew, I'm allowed to tell Jew jokes
**enough of my family came through Ellis Island, I can tell NYC jokes too
