I'm Back

Yes, yes, I know, it's been awhile since I blogged.  This is because I've been sick, so quit your whining.  I had some kind of evil flu type thing (I blame Floss at work, he was sick before I was), which then exploded into a rather nasty ear infection, and my doc packed me off home for the rest of the week.  I had a few rough days there, high fevers, aches and pains, general misery which has left me feeling like any thing but being creative enough to blog.

I am feeling considerably better now, though I do still have a cough that has me sounding like some kind of crusty old smoker, but at least I don't feel sick and miserable any  more.

Anyway, what's been happening over the past week or so?

I got my iPhone a week ago.  And boy oh boy is it a fabulous wee piece of technology.  Especially as I have had cable internet with wi-fi installed in my flat, and now I can be online from anywhere in the place.  While I have been sick I have been able to lie in bed and still be connected to the outside world, mostly through Twitter and Facebook, while comfortable and resting.  And I also have internet access on a roaming basis, anywhere that can pick up a 3G mobile signal.

The other thing I really enjoy is the fact that it is all devices in one.  Phone, internet, camera, diary, iPod, you name it.  I now only need carry it, my purse and my keys and I'm pretty much good to go.  Nice!

Something else I've enjoyed while I've been taking it easy are videos of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on YouTube.  I didn't know that Craig had a late night talk show in the US, I loved him in The Drew Carey Show years ago, and had often wondered what happened to him.  Adam Savage posted the link to this little piece of goofiness about a week ago, and I've been rediscovering all of his stuff since.

However, tonight I found this piece from a couple of years ago that really moved me.  It was the Monday after Britney Spears had her whole breakdown thing with the head shaving incident, and Craig opened his how with this incredibly moving monologue.  It makes me remember that as well as a very funny man, and a bit of a hottie, he's an intelligent, honest, thought provoking man.

Hey Kath,

Glad you're feeling better! Craig Ferguson has also written/starred in a couple of movies. "Saving Grace" is one of my faves, the main character is played by Brenda Blethlyn, who's fabulous.

Congrats on your new iPhone!

Along with Blue, I'm happy to hear you are feeling a bit better and getting the IPhone, green with envy here! Look out if they ever bring it out in pink!

Have a great week, thinking of you today.

When I read you got an iPhone I was all; OMG iPHONEEEEEEE! haha

I love mine. J says we should surgically attach it to my hand as it's never far from it. I swear - I have never been so in love with a piece of technology.

Welcome back, I hate being ill... I've been waiting for a vitamin B12 injection, so whilst not ill, have only wanted to lay on the sofa and cuddle my cat. Finally back to normal today and catching up... there's lots here to catch up on!
