24 hour fever

Is there such a thing as a 24 hour crush?

Like you have a jones for someone for, say, a day?

I was sick, so maybe I'm not even thinking straight. But at least I can say it was a 24 hour thing, because I won't tolerate this sort of behaviour from myself.

I'm a career girl. No time for daydreaming about stupid men. And no, it's not any one of the Germans.

It's all nice thinking about someone a lot and stuff, but this was highly impractical, if not completely out of the question. So many reasons why. But also, I'm winning at being the happy single lady, remember.

God I frustrate myself. Stop it. NOW.

Besides, my nose is falling off my face and I feel like death.

Flu is always under-exaggerated. When someone says they have the 'flu, nobody really takes that seriously. I don't want to sound like a man here at any cost – but yesterday I was dying. (A sick man always believes he's dying, but again, no one really takes that seriously.)

I half passed out in the canteen at lunch and was sent home. Thinking of somebody else and wiping my nose repeatedly.

This stops today. The thinking of another person thing.

I'm finally learning how to be an unfeeling emotionless robot in the last while. And it was working just fine. I am SO cross with myself.

But never fear, now that my fever is subsiding, I'm back on track. Eradicating all silly stupid man thoughts. I'm in control, can't believe I was even thinking about this person. The New Peas would never do that.

don't blame yourself. i have that effect on people

Peas on Toast said...

3RM - I know Fritzl wanted to keep it in the family, but since you're my long lost stray-gene Portuguese brother, come on.

Would be a good guessing game though, you'd NEVER get this one! :)

c@th said...

oooh yeah. i've just been here, and i failed. fabulously. entirely besmit. i've given up to the idea that i am indeed totally smit.

3rm said...

well if i'd NEVER get it you'll have to give me a clue then, innit?

Peas on Toast said...

c@th - I shalt not surrender! I will not surrender under my fripperous giggly hormonal keenness for a random male! NEVER! I WILL NEVER!

(Phew. Close call though. Thank goodness it's another day.)

3RM - Well it doesn't matter innit, cos I am a robot who is over the 24 hour keen flu! ;)

So this is a case of:
"Everybody's got the fever, that is something you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing, fever started long ago..."
?

Peas on Toast said...

Kyk - well yes, strictly speaking. But my fever isn't that jangly 'oh my god I want to kiss him all over his body' fever. I have the flu. I am over this fripperous ridiculous other fever!

leez said...

So it really isn't 3rm? that was my first guess.

Ches said...

Hhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Peas on Toast said...

Leez - to those that don't personally know him and I, then yes it would be a fair guess.

But to those who know us personally, they'd never thunk it, ever. Just because it's so never gonna happen! :)

Peas on Toast said...

Ches - hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, and what's THAT all about big guy, you have your guesses? Bet you'd never guess either! ;)

Ches said...

Ha ha Ms Toast...Ches has ultra sense's remember! ;)
Bet my guess would be pretty close...La la la la, di di dooo, hmmmmmm...

happy snapper said...

Ha ha, aah Peas, it happens to the best of us, dont knock yourself. At least you know what you want in life...happy-go-lucky-singleton. But keep an eye on that, cos you may find yourself feeling feverish at a later stage... :)

Hope you get over the REAL flu now too hun! x

Peas on Toast said...

Ches - I know you have ultra senses, but I honestly don't think you're even close buddy! (In fact, I don't think you even know this person, but, stranger things have happened!)

Snapper - please don't wish that flu on me! It only gets me into trouble!
I'd rather at this point have random bouts of loneliness than heartbreak - at least for the moment. I'm kind of torn out in that department.

happy snapper said...

Ah Peas, I wouldnt wish anything harmful on ya hun. I know what you mean bout the torn out in heartbreak category...just keep plodding Peas, when the time's right...you'll feel feverish again :)

Peas on Toast said...

Absolutely. And I'm really enjoying being selfish and alone right now. It's working out pretty well. Don't want nothin' to mess with that right now! :)

Ches said...

I do believe they have! :)
However there's no harm in having a crush about anyone...it tells us that on little bit of heartache isn't going to cloud the ability to have good 'mushy' feelings again.

Peas on Toast said...

Yeah Ches you're right. If anything, it indicates that my mojo is still working and that I'm still very much human. (To err is to be human though...)

leez said...

Its an ex. Or maybe that German Tassle panty guy?

Champagne Heathen said...

I'm betting your boss or your ex-security guard who would interogate the boys in your life... you are devilishly attracted to his protective caring ways.

OR the cafe guy who sells you your smokes!

Crushes add flavour to life. We used to call them "manufactured crushes", as in you kinda built one up when you needed some distraction from the harsh world of student life. Enjoy!

Peas on Toast said...

Leez - it's not an ex, or the tassle guy, or the German or anybody that has ever been mentioned here ever ever.

Champers - nope, none of those people either.

It's Prince Charles. You guys happy now? His ears are the business.

happy snapper said...

Ha ha! His ears are the business! LOL!

He could provide satellite for an entire nation. Good call Peas...Im glad to hear it was only a 24 hour crush, anything longer and we would've had to beat you :)

Peas on Toast said...

Ha ha, damn straight. You'd have to administer a beating. Today it's been back to business as usual, no sexual thoughts and no naked men running through my brain. Sort of.

Hoorah!

happy snapper said...

Sort of? Are they semi-dressed and singing broadway songs? Because then I understand the sort of, Peas. Otherwise, he's either naked and running through your mind, or not ;)

I prefer the running naked :P well, not so much running, as standing...its alot more flattering than naked man running. ha ha!
