So it seems like Amélie's projectile vomiting episode on Sunday may have been viral after all. In any event I either caught it from her or the Jobcentre, as I woke up with yet-another-case of The Shits.

Unfortunately I can still remember the time I had it 3-4 weeks ago, so can recognise when the waves of nausea happen. Thankfully thankfully thankfully I've not thrown up, despite being close to it earlier. Instead I just feel like crap, and that I have a garden hose connected to my arse.

Being ill meant that I had to cancel my "Getting Back to Work" lecture at the Jobcentre. Experience tells me that cancelling these can be problematic, but it seemed fairly straightforward over the phone. Time will tell I guess.

Now for the same thing I had for breakfast, flat lemonade.

In other news...

Interesting results from the recent polls. I often mean to go back and write a review of polls I post, but although I find the results fascinating I forget the follow up.

The poll about agonising over friendships shows an even spread across all types, from those who agonise, to those who don't. I had expected it to be skewed one way or the other. I'm not sure what conclusions can be drawn from this, other than we have a wide range of types out there all trying to get on, which will prove difficult, and in turn perhaps we all need to think more about our friends.

Similarly the poll about one way friendships had a fairly even spread, albeit on a narrower set of questions. Clearly the majority of people have had one way friendships, and think that the reasons suggested apply more or less universally across them - that seems to mirror my experience. Similarly I'm not sure what conclusions can be drawn, other than thinking more about your friends. On reflection though I do wonder if the foundations of a friendship can often be set in the one way mode, and then get stuck that way. Not a great excuse per sé, but a reason at least.
