Absolutely not. You must pray the gay away, take a cold shower, reflect on the Gospel of Matthew... Whatever it takes to distract yourself from homosexual temptations.If you are self isolating, but there are no girls about, is it acceptable for blokes to start using each other's hoops as fannies yet?
Just checking for a friend. Not a poofter or anything...
Tw@t!I have enough homebrew here that I could have kept sluggy drunk for about a week, normal humans it should do several months of heavy drinking.
I have run out of beer though, at the moment I have
mint choc thing
Mead (about 20 litres of various flavours from 'Jesus I've gone blind' through to 'thats awesome, however I've gone blind')
half a bottle of port (AKA 'Lobito' as I thought it was going to be awful)
and an elderflower paint stripper
unflavoured alcohol wash - not decided what it's going to become
prosecco (it was free)
What would be really useful to know is what "mild" COVID-19 looks like. The health professionals are rightly looking to identify symptoms at the pneumonic end of the spectrum. But for the other 80% it would be exceptionally helpful to be able to identify any small give-away symptoms that would mark it out as coronavirus as opposed to something else.Outing myself as probably having it - all the symptoms but incredibly mild - think more post-flu-jab than "making a tearful Youtube video looking fully made up but with medical equipment around". Painful chest, aching joints, temperature, cough, dry throat, feeling like I am thinking through a cloud of cotton wool - it could be the actual flu I suppose...
I am planning on self medicating with whisky until that runs out, then its whiskey, after that its anyone's guess between gin, vodka, tequila (though various people are begging me not to move on to that - I get rather flirty on tequila), rum (I have a pirate hat to wear for that). After that I move on to the hard core liqueurs and if all else fails there is a Grenadian chocolate rum drink a "friend" gave me (she gets the "" because this stuff when the bottle is opened actually visibly evaporates - it is guaranteed to kill 120% of all known bugs and I suspect 50% of humans). If by the end of that lot I am not totally healthy then it really is as serious as everyone has been saying.
I’m with jellyvodka. Today I felt ok enough to cook tea, and going for a slash was not too painful. Still wheezy.I was an early adopter of Covid before it became fashionable. I feel very lucky that I had a much lighter version but that was bad enough. Still isolating even though I've not had any symptoms since last Saturday.
I opened the bottle of Christmas advocaat last night. It was surprisingly pleasant and warming to the tum.Get some lemons and a jar of honey, bucket of aspirin and you have the makings of a borderline nuclear toddy there.
If you've been over it for at least a fortnight it's probably irrelevant what it was. You still need to stick to guidelines in the meantime, but I gather that tests are going to be available over the coming weeks to check for immunity.What would be really useful to know is what "mild" COVID-19 looks like.

For instance, since late January, I've experienced all the so-called "mild" symptoms but the dry chesty cough, most severe of which was a seven days plus episode of the runs (at the same time coughing up small amounts of phlegm and fluid). But, can't say whether I've had it or not without testing. Things are further complicated by some indications that there are actually two (or more) strains.
Sun is out....Campari and tonic? Campari, Cinzano Rosso and soda? Campari, bourbon, ice and a splash of soda?I opened the bottle of Christmas advocaat last night. It was surprisingly pleasant and warming to the tum.
I'm saving the campari for the summer.
But that may be subject to change...
Simmerit had the suggestion and I think its a good un. A thread for arrsers who are not well. Maybe at least we can keep our spirits up
I see it also went awry.*mutter*
I was obviously ahead of my time...
