Beat Swine Flu By Blogging!

This situation doesn't seem to be going away any time soon.

I had CNN on for about an hour yesterday afternoon and it's a good thing I wasn't playing a "Swine Flu Drinking Game", they repeated the phrase so often I would have been drunk off my rocker after 10 minutes.

This morning they say the best way to avoid this strain of sickness is by "social distancing"; closing schools, churches, and social gathering spots. Heck, it worked in 1918 why can't it work now!

So if we are to go so far as cloister ourselves into our homes we bloggers have one up on the masses. We will still have our community of blog friends, our BBF's our "Blends" (a.k.a. Blog-Friends). We won't miss a beat. For those that haven't begun a web log, now seems to be the time. You may be physically distant but the relationships you make with your cyber pen pals will get you through your new Swine Flu Seclusion.

So stay well and keep on blogging! ;->

  2. Sounds like a plan! I am such a homebody that I really don't mind sticking around home, though I do want to socialize my little guy, but I guess that will just have to wait =)

  3. I was watching the news yesterday too and I don't know why I wasn' the one to come up with the drinking game...congrats on that one!

    Can't wait to see the drink for this week's VGNO...I'll let you know if I come up with a pig themed drink!

    Go Blazers...if we end up with the swine flu, I certainly don't want to be stuck home with a p-o'd husband!

  4. Ha! Now I haven't thought of this. At least VGNO won't be affected by "quarantine".

  18. Blogging is certainly more entertaining than Swine Flu!

  19. And what better way to blog than VGNOing. The swine flu, is just that...a flu. The media is making it more than what it is in my opinion. I'm just sayin.........
