Link Roundup: Oh Bother, I’m Sick

Hey there! This has been a bit of a lazy weekend for me.

I’m all for “intentional boredom” or consciously being lazy to recharge yourself. Unfortunately, I am experiencing forced laziness.

You see, I have a cold.

And I’m such a baby about it. I’d much rather be keeping busy, running errands, or doing something productive.

Instead, I have zero energy, so I’m loafing on the couch with a box of Popsicles and watching reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Is it weird that I find Data attractive?

Anyhoo, it’s probably for the best. If I run myself ragged while I’m sick, I’m liable to make my cold worse.

How do you act when you get sick? What makes you feel better?

So, while I queue up another episode (with Q?), here are some tidbits for you to peruse at your leisure.

    I damn everything to hell when I’m sick. I eat what I want, I sleep for however long that I want, and I watch a whole lot of crappy TV. I may not heal faster (or maybe I do) but it sure is a silver lining to the bug. Hope you feel better and keep up those popsicles!

    There seems to be a lot of crud going around lately. I hope you feel better very soon! I do what you do when I’m sick- rest, rest, rest. And I also drink a ton of water. 🙂

    Feel better girlie! Unintentional laziness is the worst, I hate having no energy when I feel sick and can’t get off the couch. Rest up and let yourself recover!

    Feel better Sage! Great links, I am sure they will keep you entertained 🙂 When I’m at home and I’m sick I can be a big baby or I’ll just lay in bed and not move for a day or two. The flip side is sometimes I continue business as usual and I go to work and do everything I need to do. I guess it depends on when I get sick!

    Take care of yourself and feel better!

    If you’re blogging, you’re not doing nothing. Hope you feel better soon.

    Nope – you’re not alone in your Data love. <3 I mostly just sleep a lot when I'm sick. If I'm really truly sick, I just sleep as much as humanly possible, wake up, have a hot shower, slather myself in Vick's vapor rub and start the cycle until I feel human again.

    Feel better, dear! Sometimes you just gotta loaf about for awhile til you heal up.
