Neverending flu and my ongoing hiatus

So I've had what appears to be a flu for three weeks now. Twice already I thought it was over, but is seems like this bastard likes to go three rounds at least. I am at what seems to be the end of round three, hopefully the final one.

I had planned to take January and February off for snowboarding but the complete lack of snow has fist-fucked that plan completely. Instead I've spent most of January getting caught up with a few seasons of various tv shows. Hopefully this stupid flu is over and I can get back to a normal life soon.

Since this snowboarding season appears to be a casualty of Global Warming, I am leaning towards taking my life off pause and getting things done. Time to go apartment hunting and back to work. More on this as it happens.

The only other thing to report is that Zelda on the Wii is tons of fun, and I've reached Pro rating on Wii golf and Wii bowling. Yes my life is kind of pathetic right now.

Actually there is one more morsel of info that my Canadian friends will have a good laugh at. It appears I have to go back to driving school. No, it's not cause I did something stupid but rather because Holland considers Canadian driver's licenses to be in the same league as monopoly money. Cute but utterly useless. Unless the license is from Quebec that is, in which case you can just trade it in for a Dutch one. (Don't even get me started on that rant.) So unless I can convince the folks in Slovakia to give me a license, it's off to driving school for Joe. Yippee! I just can't think of a better way to spend 2000 euro!
