Blogger Jennie Dorris had yet to miss a day of posting since we first began publishing Cheap Thrills every weekday back in April. But then swine flu swooped in, bringing with it some strange symptoms.

Jennie relays: “I’ve been having feverish dreams that I’m working for the Home Shopping Network, which is a little horrifying.”

We’re not sure there’s a way to make H1N1 more affordable, but if there is, Jennie would be the person to find out. We’re looking forward to her return.
