You can’t escape

So today (or for what’s left of it), I will be cheating on my blogging prompt challenge. It’s been a hectic day and since getting home, I’ve felt really under the weather. The colleague who sits next to me at work (and who I annoyingly share a phone with) is disgusting ill with a lingering cold and instead of doing the decent thing by staying home, she decided that it would be a great idea to infect the entire office. I was doing a pretty good job avoiding it… using antibacterial hand gel as often as breathing, consuming a ridiculous amount of pineapple, vitamin c and pine nuts, and just generally staying away from anything she’d touched… Well, that was until my brother got a cold, too. So for the past few nights, I’ve been segregated to my room in a pointless attempt at trying to avoid this virus, but I think it’s finally got me. So brain functionality, at this moment of time, has well and truly hit rock bottom.

Hopefully I’ll be able to resume normal service tomorrow…

The full moon

#232: When the full moon happens, you turn into a person who’s the opposite of who you normally are. Describe this new you.

The opposite of me… hmmm…. So, the “full moon” me would be painfully unorganised, incredibly lazy, have an appalling email and telephone manner, would be wearing heels 24/7 regardless of where I was and I’d (disturbingly) hate music. However, on the plus side, I’d be an amazing chef and wouldn’t feel cold all the time! As with everything, swings and roundabouts (although I do prefer non-full moon me, of course). 

Turn, turn, turn

#98: For many of us, winter is blooming into spring, or fall hardening into winter. Which season do you most look forward to?

I enjoy the transition between winter and spring the most. My reasoning for this is during this time period it starts to get a little warmer, which for me is a big deal, as I feel the cold something rotten. For example, during winter I’d sit at my desk with umpteen layers on (including the thermal layers I was given for my press trip to Iceland!) and still be cold. Obviously, it doesn’t help that my Editor likes to have the big window open, but all the same, when it’s cold… i’m freezing! I always say that my internal central heating system is broken… which it kind of is as I’ve gone through all of the tests possible but there is nothing medically wrong with me. However, back to topic! This is also the time of year where you can still wrap up in your snuggly coat without fear of being rained on, and be able to enjoy the glorious sunshine too! It’s a win win situation really…


#93: Describe your ultimate escape plan (and tell us what you’re escaping from).

Right now, I’d like to escape my cold/flu-ey thing! My plan is the traditional way of shifting something like this… plenty of fluids, plenty of rest and of course, the magical sweets commonly known as flu capsules!

To answer the prompt though, I don’t have an ultimate escape plan per se but even if I did, it would be a secret kept very close to my chest! Mwah-ha-ha!
