ah -- FLU!

I'm officially flu-proof. Well, maybe ... but in addition to my regular flu shot, last night I took the H1N1 vaccine via nasal spray. There's been no problem thus far, except for the third arm that's started growing out of my neck -- and won't that be useful, in the long run?

Three arms mean you can grope EVEN more!

Hold everything! When I was a kid the flu used to be called the grip!! So if he can grope more now...the shot didn't work!

I'm glad you are covered!
I say that even though I don't ever get flu shots. I am the person who would get a severe case of the flu from the shot.

I respect people who make an informed decision not to get the shot. So far so good for me, but the way my luck goes ....

I work in healthcare and I can't find a regular flu shot much less the H1N1. :(

I got the flu shot a month ago through my work -- they like to have 24 coverage in emergency dispatch, for some reason -- and the H1N1 shot through the fire department as a medical first responder. I'm told that around here they have just barely enough vaccine for high risk patients and direct care people, but even then I think I got lucky. Part of it is that a lot of field people are refusing the shots, because they're listening to the wild urban legends going around about the nasal spray.

Oh, man, I'm jealous! I have long wanted a third arm w/hand attached (that's very important, you know). ;-)

Sure -- without the hand it's only usable if you're planning a career in fetish adult movies.

I've come to the conclusion that I'm probably old enough to not need H1N1 vaccine unless they are desperate to give it to me... I'll wait until the younger 'essential services' are done!

If I wasn't in this business I'd have made the same decision, myself. Still, it's good to know that if someone else in the family gets sick, I can come in to help take care of things.

Hi,

kinda depends on whether it'll reach, then you'd REALLY be able to multi-task :-)

Hmmm... makes me wonder if that's how Jake the Peg got his extra leg? Wonder whether I should write to Rolf Harris and find out?

Still under Willow & Tara's spell,
Ray.

Um ... I don't know who Jake the Peg is ....
