Not Commuting: Being sick sucks

The above brilliant graph is by Jim from the Bikerly blog

In the end of last week I started to feel more tired than usual and after our company’s autumn kick-off that went a bit longer than expected and I had even more fun than anticipated obviously resulted my stress hormones relaxing and giving in to the flu that my wife has had since last week.

Today, writing this on a Monday evening, it’s my fourth day off the bike – and even though I already have given myself permission to not ride every day I do notice the effect it has on me. Luckily for me, the Bikerly effect (as I will from now on call it), was documented by Jim in the Bikerly blog in his post about cycling’s social impact.

Then again, it has been raining a lot lately, so much actually that we have massive batches of mushrooms in our garden, which I’ve never seen before. I just found out that they’re actually edible. It took me several days to figure out what they are, using social channels, sparking up a big discussion in Facebook and even asking my parents, who in turn asked a local University’s fungological dudette (aka. Mushroom inspector) and I finally got my answer.

This is the mushroom I was deciphering.

I mean, what else is there to do when you’re sick than trying to decipher fungi?
