Pee in the shower? Absolutely. Pee on significant other? I hope that's not true, because then I'm a wuss.

With a title like "Shingles," this thread couldn't lose.

If it spreads to your beard, sound the alarm.

I'm jealous of all beards. Don't shave yours. I'm living vicariously through you...except for the red super-virus commandeering your body.

Then, I get a massive head injury (explains a lot, amirite?) and vegetate in the ICU for three days in a Michael Jackson style coma.

I come to... laryngitis is gone.

Fine, I'll pee on you too, if we ever meet.

Followed you on FB so you can see an update of mine. Just realized I didn't add you when I transitioned from MySpace.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

It's up to my neck. Dermatologist appointment tomorrow. I actually did trim the beard today, down to a #4. I had to get rid of it for work last month and my wife couldn't stop laughing.

Weird, as I've been awfully hungry lately, but I'm always hungry, so we just don't keep extra food lying around.

One odd thing that I think quelled the hunger is that the doctor told me to take the dosage first thing in the morning with a big breakfast. I hate breakfast so the closest thing I could manage to a "big" breakfast was a bowl of cereal and a granola bar. Since I'm not used to eating breakfast, I'd feel weirdly full throughout the morning and afternoon.

And another side effect is that The Little One saw me eating cereal with milk and a spoon (vs. dry as he's always had it) and is now in love with eating cereal in milk with a spoon.
