Today I'm doing that thing that everyone says you shouldn't do, by being at work with a sniffly nose. It's all very well saying 'stay home' but I don't have swine flu as evidenced by the fact that I'm capable of getting out of bed. I've been battling this thing for two weeks and it's got as far as a runny nose and a weird tight feeling around my eyes, which isn't exactly in-danger-of-keeling-over symptoms.

And I have a meeting, which I can't afford to miss. So I'm here, and I'll sit away from everyone else and keep my bugs to myself, and take time off when I actually need it.

Feel free to tell me I suck for risking the health of others. Frankly, if this is as bad as it gets then I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing to get your immune system working.
