Post-food poisoning. Totally not fun. Still bloated, still tired, and my goodness, I can’t take a look at noodles right now. Also, the weather has been super weird lately.
Some thoughts when seeing a picture of Charles and Camilla as the King and the Queen. While I don’t have any relationship with the British monarchy other than what is stated in the history book, it’s still pretty weird nonetheless.

It has been… 2 days? 3 days? And the flu stil persists. At this point, this is no longer “common cold”, man. This is either flu or upper respiratory tract infection.
