Scraps: Night-time, sniffling, sneezing, coughing (9/2/2008)

Scraps

It seems a lot of people wound up catching something really nasty while at PAX. I keep hearing stories from people suffering from sore throats, sinus problems and headaches. I got a bit of it, but my incredibly masculine immune system is bolstered by the constant flow of tar and carcinogens I ingest. Viruses are terrified of me.

If you’ve come down with the sickness, click a few of these and call me in the morning. Conversely, if you’re listening to “Down with the Sickness,” I’m sorry. I don’t think there’s a cure for what you have.
