Today I have a cold and nobody wants to be in the same room as me, so I’m spending extra time with my blogging friends instead. Do make sure you have your antivirus software fully up to date before reading any further.
Having nothing much to do on a Sunday afternoon all alone, I started typing “is it” into the Google search box, and as usual, Google offered some helpful suggestions. Most puzzling to me were:
Is it down?
Is it Christmas?
It seems that people who ask Google “is it down?” are trying to find out if some website or other is down, or if it’s just a problem with their internet connection. If they think that Google knows such things, good luck to them. Why anyone would need to ask if it’s Christmas is beyond me.
Anyway, I carried on with my search query and got as far as “is it better to” before ever-helpful Google again prompted me with:
Is it better to be single?
Is it better to be alone?
Well, my heart goes out to people who are so lonely that they have nobody to ask such a question except a search engine. How sad, especially when it may (or may not) be Christmas.
After this digression, I eventually got around to asking my question:
Is it better to have a temperature when ill?
But found no conclusive explanations either way. So I think I’m just going to take a couple of paracetamol tablets and curl up all alone in a ball, feeling sorry for myself until my cold gets better. Maybe by then it will be Christmas?
