Cartoon, Olympics.

I loved this cartoon, absolutely had to share it because it is so true, Facebook and the like are absolutely littered with pet pix. This came from How to Geek.

I am not too chipper today. I was violently ill on Saturday night, stomach upset - one of those where you don't know whether to sit down or bend over - no idea why except it might be something to do with my IBS. Matt and I basically ate and drank the same things. It was also one of those where you are afraid you are dying and after a while afraid you are not. Used to say that about seasickness.

Been pretty well glued to the TV with the Olympics. I was very disappointed the young Canadian who won the Bronze medal in snowboarding didn't do better particularly as we had previously watched the film about his near death experience. Pretty frightening for all concerned. Mind you they are nuts anyway LOL. As are the ski jumpers, not seen any of those yet. I love speed skating and also enjoy Cross Country skiing. Well I used to do some of that. Figure skating is probably my favourite though. Hope to see some tonight.

No recipe today, sorry. Feel quite washed out. For instance I only ate half a baked potato for supper and a few Brussels sprouts. And I haven't had any chocolate all day!!!!!!!!

Have a great day

    1. In the end I didn't. I had a small Hershey's Kiss before I went to bed.

  2. I hope you feel better soon. i haven’t been watching the TV coverage because the channel showing it has a less than stellar commentary team and so I just can’t be bothered. Pity, though, because the Winter Olympics are usually very exciting to watch.

    1. Thanks Helen. I have a slight problems with that here, but we have the Olympics on several channels so you can pick and choose who you listen to, or turn off the sound altogether.

  3. Sorry you are feeling ill. Heard there is a lot of norovirus going around in addition to the flu. I was so sick with it one year EMS took me to the hospital. Haven't watched the Olympics in many, many years.

    1. Thanks Denise, better today. Muscles hurting from being sick though. I have no idea what I had or why. I love the Olympics.

  4. Sorry you were so sick. Who knows what was in your food that wasn't in Matt's.
    Wild to see our seventeen-year-old win the snowboarding. Just a kid and he has an Olympic Gold.

    1. As you say Alex, who knows. You are right, I watched an interview with Red and he didn't look old enough to be out of school.

  5. I'm so sorry you got sick. The exact thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago. The intestinal cramps were so bad that they made me dizzy and ready to pass out. The pain was at least a 10. Know what you mean about 'afraid I was dying and then afraid I wasn't'. It was about a 24 hour thing.

    1. Thanks JoJo. The actual illness didn't last more than a few hours, but I felt lousy all day yesterday. Not as bad as yours, I'm pleased to say.

  6. I have been sick like that before and it is horrible. I hope you are slowly on the mend. I used to watch the Olympics but haven't much for quite a few years.

    1. Thanks Birgit, not fun is it. Much to my surprise I still feel a bit unwell and shaky this afternoon. I especially enjoy the skating so don't want to miss it.

  7. Hi Jo - glad that has passed ... never nice, and one's muscles do hurt. Go easy and you'll be back to normal soon ... I'm not watching the Olympics, though trying vaguely to keep track - cheers Hilary

    1. Apparently not completely passed Hilary, bit shaky this afternoon. I do love to watch the Olympics and was cheering an Englishman who was doing very well in Cross Country Skiing.

    1. Thanks Truedessa. Rest is not so easy round here with Matt among the walking wounded.
