1. Remember how I said I had a "pretty unthreatening" bug of some sort? It mutated into full-on flu so violent that my mother has spent the last few days fretting about H1N1. However, I am now able to perform complicated tasks like getting up and drinking a cup of tea, so presumably I'm on the mend.

2. This is one of the best flash-game style things I've ever found via StumbleUpon. It's very very pretty, and fun in a logic-puzzle sort of way too. And once you get into the later levels, it's almost as much fun just to play around with the patterns of light and music as it is to try to solve it. If I ever have any money again, I might even buy the full version.

(... I keep finding myself thinking about Braid when I play it. I don't know why. It is absolutely nothing like Braid. It isn't a platform game, it doesn't have a weird twisty storyline - or any storyline - and it is not even remotely the same genre. It's not even comparing apples to oranges, it's like comparing apples to... fish and chips, or something. The only connection I can make is the pretty classical-esque music, and the fact that on some levels it seems to require similar sort of lateral thinking, in a way.)

3. As long as I'm talking about Braid: it's good! Play it!

4. I wonder if trying to eat breakfast would be too ambitious...? I feel sick, but dammit I am so hungry.

Please, do get well soon!

I've had flu earlier this spring and was so awful that I totally wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Try some lightly cooked toast for breakfast; it'll be the best thing if it's going to stay down. Get well soon!

May I enquire as to your SU username, so I may add you? *is a SU geek from way back*

Eat! It would probably make your body feel better in the long run. I agree with [profile] awils1 that it should probably be light, so you can keep it down.

(And that Auditorium game is rather pretty. Still stuck in the third stage of 'Hajimemashite', though.)

Eep, feel better! And if you need more game-distraction, Sling is extremely addictive.
