My stomach flu lasted for three days, just like the Wikipedia entry said. It was also sudden and assaulting, a painful knot, this mortal coil. It's quite depressing, really. How something infinitesimal can do that much damage in such a short time.
Buy hey, I did finish the first season of Brothers & Sisters, and I must say, I'm addicted. I love the, err, lack of direction and the pointless-ness of it all, which is quite refreshing. The writing meanders, wistful and witty, in and out of the the Walkers' kitchen-sink dramas. The cast is amazing to watch. Heck, the boys are amazing to watch.
(I feel a TV Boyfriends-entry coming...)
