Today I go into hospital to find out the extent of my ankle break, and when the op will be.

Today we had some friends round. Got chatting about old games and my mate was going on about Galaxian. Cue MAME and 4 hours later, we've just finished playing :D

Today my wife bought a new rug for the front room, the colour and texture of the pile looks exactly to me like someone's skinned the Cookie Monster and laid his pelt out on our living room floor. I like it.

I've been awake quite a while thinking about it and it wasn't an easy decision to make, since I still feel I don't actually have a great deal to apologise for at all and things were said to me / about me which were very hurtful indeed. But f*ck it - new year, new start and it's pointless holding childish grudges. Actually feel quite chuffed now that I've done it.
Great to hear, very mature :)

I myself, woke up today feeling a lil better, so maybe the worse has passed :) However my dog may have got a little poorly as he left me some suprises! poor thing
I did that. I think, anyway.

Oooh, was it like a big chunk of chicken skin but beige and slimy with bloody red threads in it? I coughed up something in the shower last year and was so alarmed I had to show it to my wife before poking it down the plug hole with my toe. It stank and I felt like my head had lost about half a a pound once I'd expelled it. I had sinusitis and it took mega antibiotics to shift it. What did you cough up? Do tell.

Within the last hour I'm seriously considering selling up my xbox 360 as I was close to smashing up a second controller, this'll probably go some way to reducing my blood pressure.

I was joking about coughing up an organ, but this is still BY FAR the worst cough I have ever had, never had one that actually made me throw up before.

I had best chest problems a few weeks ago...kept me off work for two whole weeks.

I didn't think I was that ill until MrsCarlos found me collapsed with my lips turning blue :shock:

Went to the doc's and my blood oxygen saturation level was 87. Apparently that's bad.

Took 12 steroid pills and 8 antibiotics a day for ten days to clear that puppy up.

Someone called my housemate to inform that our place is being sold and we need to find somewhere else before our lease is up in March. Guess I'll be spending the new year apartment hunting again...

Stayed round my dad's place last night and we were woken at 6:30 this morning by the deafening fire alarm. Assumed it was just on the blink at first but couldn't switch the f*cker off in the flat, and we had a look in the main hallway for a switch to shut it off. Noticed the neighbour upstairs, who we thought was out for the night, had all his lights on and his door unlocked (and could now smell some burning) so decided to go up and see if he was alright. His oven had clearly been on for bloody ages with a long-cremated pizza in there, and there he was on the sofa in his living-room spaced out of his brain on weed. How the alarm didn't rouse him is beyond me... :lol:

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.
