Norovirus #2: When was the last time I got to feel like this?

I’ll tell you exactly when: it was when I was working Christmas Day in Tokyo for IBM/Cognos. Christmas Day was a day to get sick for some reason, for a couple years in a row, but nothing like ’08.

The whole set of symptoms and reaction is just, very much, like the “Christmas flu”. There is no easy going, no easy getting over it, and it means lots of liquids once you are well enough to sit up for a minute!
