heeeeere, piggy piggy!

And now for something non-Flip related, I just saw the following comic posted on Twitter,

hahaha, toooooo FUNNY! (thanks, Candace, for posting this)

We have so far, as of time of posting, avoided the "flu-that-shall-not-be-named" (as referred to by fellow blogger Lynn*). I'm not sure if this is due to our vitamin D intake (which I do intend to write more about soon) or if it's thanks to us being constantly holed up inside our house homeschooling or just luck. I'm thankful that we've remain healthy so far, but am really not too worried about it if we do get it (but that IS NOT A CHALLENGE, Mr. Flu!). I know that some of my bloggy friends and some of my real life friends have had it, so hope that everyone is starting to feel better.

*You should all go read Lynn's blog. It's funny, entertaining, and really well written. One of my top five favorite reads.


  1. Just surfing the web and found your blog-- this picture made me laugh out loud! I work at a TV station and today we're devoting all our coverage to the swine flu... I kinda feel like we're making too big a deal out of it, and this cartoon was welcome stress relief. Thanks for sharing!


  2. I DO feel like piglet. Oink!

    It's wise to avoid it if possible, but I think we ARE being influenced by fear (myself included! I was veeery unhappy two days ago.)

    Important thing is not to LIVE in fear. We are so lucky to even HAVE these arguments. I feel very thankful that I live in a country where I a) saw a doctor almost immediately and b) was sent home with a better understanding of what I have, and how to deal with it.

    Here's hoping you dodge this particular strain! I'm looking forward to rejoining society. Er, as soon as i'm not contagious.

  3. Hahahaaha! And yet, when I see that, I think of pig stink, not of the "unmentionable sickness". We are surrounded by pig barns, and I'm not worried about it. WHy worry... that's just gonna stress you out and make you even more susceptible, am I right?
    We've avoided it so far as well, and I'm out and about often. Oh, and as for the normal flu, my hubby and I haven't caught it for years now, even with being around others who DO have it.
