The Newest Item on My List of Things to Do

Seems that there is a rumor of a local case of swine flu 2009 North American H1N1 Influenza A. After my computer science exam tomorrow afternoon, I don't have much of anywhere to be for a few weeks. I think I'd like to catch the flu now and get immunity to this strain, as I have plenty of time to be sick now. By all reports, it's no more virulent than the regular flu, and it's fairly susceptible to anti-virals like Tamiflu. When it reappears next flu season (and you know it will), I'll be busy teaching class and all that, and I won't have time to be sick.
