The Week In Which I Was Ill

I'm doing kind of better in terms of health. My nose is still a little blocked but I think that's always going to be that way because of blasted hay fever. My cough isn't so bad, and at the very least I can talk normally and I can move about, so hopefully I'll be able to exercise properly. I really let myself go over the weekend so I need it. All I mostly did last week so I'll let you know what I answered, and you can feel free to go have a look at what the answers were. They're all worth it though, in my not so humble opinion.

Well on Tuesday I actually wrote a post about fellow blogger Anne. It was part of a giveaway she was doing. She told me that just a mention would do, but I went all out anyway, and didn't want to change anything. I actually won the giveaway too, which is awesome. My only slight complaint is that I can no longer claim I never win anything. I've entered two blogging giveaways, and I've won two blogging giveaways.

Wednesday I responded to getting a Liebster award which resulted in me answering ten questions. They were specifically 1. What happens if a vegetarian gets bitten by a zombie? 2. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? 3. Why is Justin Bieber so popular? 4. Who's better, Bon Scott or Brian Johnson? 5. What was the best period in history to live in? (the answer to that one went down well) 6. Who's the greatest person in history? 7. What was high school like for you? 8. Do you prefer movies, TV, music or books? 9. Which superhero would you most like to be? 10. If a genie granted you three wishes, how on Earth did you get them and can I have one?

Thursday there was no podcast. I spent a while explaining that one, and then I answered some more questions to have something to do. Specifically what's on your mind lately, places you want to visit, celebrity crushes, favourite holiday and why?

Friday was what I like and don't like about myself, the best day of my life, my favourite quote, and something awkward that happened. In this post I told the story of how my boss held me captive after work. I'd also like to change my favourite quote, or at least, share another great one with you. "Is there any life without danger or hardship? Without such things, weak humans die off in mere tens of years. If so, then step forward humans. Advance and bear your trials. It's only natural for those who have stepped forward to on more risk than the norm. And what of it? It's much better than those rotting pigs who covet idleness within their safety net. Those things worth seizing lie at the end of risk." Evangeline- Negima.

Saturday I shared a short story I wrote describing the perfect wedding that I came up with. With a bit of help from Jessica I altered it to be even better. It got a very good response too, which I'm glad about. I urge anyone who hasn't read it to go read it.

Finally on Sunday I shared a few sketches from That Mitchell And Webb Look. The sketch show that David Mitchell does with Robert Webb. Included is the trailer to their cricket underdog movie, that I'd totally watch, the super hero duo of Angel Summoner and the BMX Bandit, and their game show Numberwang.

I hope to end up in perfect health by the end of the week, but I guess we'll see. Even though my bed is in the dark corner away from the window my lack of curtains means I end up waking early. I wouldn't exactly say I'm a light sleeper but when light hits my eyes, I wake up, even if it's a little. So even without a wedding going on, I might not get much rest. 

I'll leave you with this for today. Until next time.

  5. Holy crap, that story was awesome. First I'm hit with one twist, THEN another twist. Very funny, and very clever. I'd love to see you write more stories like this.

  6. I'm glad you do these roundups Mark. I didn't post on Saturday and I missed your Wedding Post. I loved it, just brilliant. The twist with the bride was just the perfect thing to add humor and surprise.

    Glad you're feeling better!

  7. I was thinking I would give you some healthy guidelines to help you fully get over your illness...but then I remembered my poor track record with health, and I was afraid my advice might kill you. So, instead I will just quote the immortal Casey Kasem, and say, "Remember to keep your feet on the ground, but never stop reaching for the stars."

  10. Sorry to hear that you haven't been well! I'm just doing a small blogging round because I miss you guys and it feels like ages since I've read you. Not just feels... it *has* been ages! I hope that when I get my own place I'll have proper time to get back in to blogging - there's just too many people in this house and too many things going on to focus for long :)

  11. Hi Mark, I hope you get to feeling better real soon! Let me be punny and say "Get WHALE soon." {Did it work? :)}

    P.S. I loved Sunday's post, I needed some comic relief after a grueling evening of calculus!

  13. I didn't read your story about the perfect wedding. Sweet lord! I need to get my act together. A man writes about his dream wedding and I miss this?
