blegh. arrg.  
I like the winter months, I'm not sure why. It's nothing to do with the scenery or general shortness of the days... I just like it. One thing I cannot abide, however, is colds. Not cold weather or deep-freezes, but those horrid, disgusting head colds that sneak up on you when you think your foolish yet genius idea to brave the winter weather without your bobble hat was missed by Mr Frost. Suddenly you wake up and your head is in a vice, your nose has been transformed into a constantly-dripping tap and your eyes either won't open or focus as if you've had seven beers in your sleep.

The rest of your body is fine. But the heavy lead thing which is usually known as your face is pulling your spine into a curve as you hunch around the house trying to find the last pristine tissue, lest you risk using an already-ragged entrail of a kleenex you dessimated yesterday with your sneezing fit. Once the supply is used (the supply you criminally forgot to keep up because of how you'd managed without the cold of death so far) you then have to impress yourself on the unfortunate healthy members of the public who give you a wide, generous berth the moment they hear your rasping breaths and groans of misery because your teeth are hurting worse than your neck.

I never thought looking like an infected Lurch would be a boon, but the crowds of Hanley just spread wide to give me a path today. I returned home to spread Vix vaporub on my throat, under my nose, and around my nostrils which is now stinging me to fuck. Hopefully I will be better with a nice lie-in, accompanied by television viewing of House, Heroes, and something else beginning with H...
Feeling: coldcold
