Back from the Dead

Hello everyone, you may have noticed that my posting has been a little on the light side lately. This is because I had an extended bout with the non-respiratory flu, one which I only very narrowly won.

Ugh, talk about horrible. 10 straight days of fevers above 102, all the way up to 103.7. Piercing, torture-filled headaches. The chills. The sweats. Unable to regulate body temperature at all. Unable to get comfortable. I even had a touch of vertigo one night, unable to stand up straight, the world spinning around me. I threw up.

So I'm probably at about 70% now. Still very tired, but the fever has broken and I'm in full recovery mode now. Which is a good thing, since I had a large number of projects piling up while I laid in bed 24 hours a day. I love sleeping in, but when you don't do anything else it can become its own hell.

On the bright side: I watched the entire first season of Six Feet Under in one and a half days. What a well-made show. Hmmm. . . other than nice care received from my wife and kids, that's about the only bright side to the whole experience. Oh, I did get lots of prayer from caring people, like my parents, so that was nice too.

In non-flu related news, since the release of the vine magazine's video of Simpler than it Seems, we've been getting between 100-120 downloads of that song everyday. If you think about it, that is really a lot of people to be downloading a particular song.

If we could only identify where these people are, we could play some pretty fun shows, you know?

He's not kidding. He barely pulled through. I saw him on three different occasions while he was sick, and he looked HORRIBLE. He really looked like a living corpse. Even when conscious, he looked very absent from this dimension.

He hadn't shaved for days on end, his hair stuck in every direction and his face displayed a horribly pallid countenance. It was a great look. I was substantially jealous of the hair and beard, but if I was going to sport that style, I could do without the skin discoloration.

one, the vine site is no good, you guys should re-do it for em. two, "simpler than it seems" isn't a video, it's a mp3. third, when it is opened in my ipod adn windows player, it say fanatic. me thinks jason coughed on the computer and screwed all this up.

Jason is now only 30% corpse.

I don't care what anyone says. I think the Nursing Home Escapee look is HOT. . . I'd do him.

i thought you said he looked like nathan after nathan has been drinking? that is a very excellent description. josh

I think the exact description was "Nathan after he had been out drinking all night."

Jason? Have you gone out and gotten yourself completely wasted again? *tsk* *tsk* :-P

Josh, you're right. You should have seen the guy. I'm sure you would agree. In fact, the similarity was so striking, that had we played a show in the midst of the illness, he would most certainly be pegged as a BSF wannabe.

is that any different from the way he normally looks?
