WHY must it BE!

Well, that was one of the least pleasant 48 hours of my life. Starting with the migraine at lunchtime on Friday, and segueing nicely into a rather exciting gastro flu (I suspect exhibit a, which always shakes me up, caused exhibit b). Is it a bad sign to be standing in a shower so hot you can't put your hands in it... and still getting goosebumps? I'll refrain from sharing my new "worst moment of illness", suffice to say that it beat having to reswallow a full mouthful of vomit to avoid puking on a bus.

Not only did I have everything on the weekend rather rudely cancelled (including the monthly roleplaying game and a party I was looking forward to), but everything else kept going wrong too. My bike, which I just got back from the shop, has a broken spoke, making it unridable. Given that it originally went in there for a broken spoke, I'm getting more than just a bit fed up (no, don't know if its the same one - i suspect not). The DVD players appears to have eaten itself - so when I just wanted to zone out in front of Shrek, I couldn't get it to work. Aha, PS2 will play dvds... or would, if it could pick up any dvd other than chick flicks.

I've slept more in the last 24 hours than in a normal 3 days, and my voice still sounds tired. I'm still a bit spacey, but i've had a coffee - this is now the 2nd time in about 10 years that I've skipped coffee for a day. I'm just left with a lingering sense that my life has been derailed a bit...

Sounds like a crappy time - my sympathy to you :-(

Yes. You know, I did put "my" in there at one point, but Liz rants about the whole "drowned in your own vomit" thing, ("as if it wouldn't be worse to drown in someone else's!") so much that I took it out :)

Dear friend,

This is not a chain-letter!!!
Read it to the end and act fast.

Aaron thought he could skip roleplaying for "just one week" to "spend time with my girl" who was getting stroppy about him pretending to be a Space Warlock. When he returned to the RPG, he rolled critical misses all night. He claimed he was just a bit off his game but everyone knows good dice don't turn bad without a reason!

Brett took the name of Gygax in vain.
His elf got eaten by a Black Dragon.

Carl said he was cutting-back on roleplaying with his "noobs" because it was cutting-in to his World of Warcraft time. Then he stepped on a d4 and had to go to the ER to get it cut out from his heel.

Dwayne, that nondescript guy, he didn't roleplay for a whole month and now he's no longer around. Nobody even remembers him!

Eccles thought he'd take a night off GMing (see, it doesn't just happen to players), citing a gamer being interstate. The very next day, he got an agonising migraine. After that, he was stricken by the most horrible case of gastro flu in the history of gastro flus (-4d4 CON, -2d6 STR, lose half HP for d3 days. Spew of Malignant Slime, 6-foot radius, 2d100 colours).

Remember, you can prevent this sort of thing happening to you by roleplaying regularly.
Once a week is an okay start but gaming more frequently will afford you better protection.
Pass this message on to 4d6 roleplaying-buddies or you will be the victim of extreme bad luck.

Ah, sucky.

It sounds like one of those times where you have to remind yourself that there has never been a rule that life is supposed to be fair :(
