I had to send a TLA e-mail to work this morning - RonO's Ramblings

Sep. 30th, 2009 10:14 am I had to send a TLA e-mail to work this morning

Following in the tradition of my employer (or at least my fellow employees) I sent an e-mail to work with the subject "OOO - NFW." In translation, "I'm staying home sick today."

After I made the decision, came home instead of catching the train, sent the e-mail, I took a nap for a couple of hours. Of course, now I'm feeling fine, and guilty that I'm not at work.

I suspect that what I was feeling was some combination of the allergy/sinus thing that has been plaguing me for a few weeks and yesterday's flu shot. robot_grrl was knocked back a bit by her flu shot as well, so this year's blend seems to trigger a more active response in the immune system than the ones for the last few years.

Hopefully, in a few weeks I'll know how the H1N1 vaccine hits us.

It'll probably be longer than that. The CDC is saying that "target groups" will receive the vaccine first and reading through their description, I don't think either of you will be in that group. I don't expect to see it being administered widely like the annual vaccine until December.

FWIW - I don't plan to get either vaccine. Yes, you can tell me I should have if I come down with either flu. I'm going to wash my hands now.

When Ron had Sprout in to the doctor about his acne, I had him ask about flu shots. Dr. Marcos was more concerned that he was current on the meningitis vaccination.

OOO -> Out of Office, but what's NFW? I'm guessing it's the equivalent of "not working", but I can't quite think how to expand it.

Not Feeling Well. It took me a while to parse that one myself, but since it was almost always paired with either "OOO" or "WFH" (Work From Home) I finally figured it out.
