For anyone in the Los Angeles area, Davey and I are going to be hosting Loveline tonight with Dr. Drew. Totally forgot about it til this second.



Does anyone have swine flu yet?

If you're home sick with the swine flu, you can pass the time watching the news, shortayy.

No, but about 5 or 6 schools have closed in the Bay Area. Everyone is blowing this whole thing out of proportion; it's irritating.

I ate some turkey and got a ridiculous stomach ache, so I thought I had swine flu, but then I remembered that Turkey is not swine

somettimes I doubt this hole thing is true...I dunno, there are some things that just don`t fit in the theory u know...sorry Engeenier at work hehe.

Cort said...

No, it's even worse.....it's a hybrid between the bird flu and the swine flu, it's.....THE SWAN FLU! Pretty gnarly stuff if I do say so :]

Not yet Jade..Don't you catch it either!

Saint Sorrow said...

Nope. Perfectly healthy. Also, even if you or someone got the swine flu, just remember: it is the flu. Just a stronger strain than normal. And the normal flu is more deadly than the swine flu. If you're going to worry about anything, it's going to be the normal flu.

Anonymous said...

Nope. So far, I have been disease-free. You try and stay healthy,

Crimson Butterfly said...

no why do you?i just hope i don't get it.

Ya know Jade, swine isnt as fatal as the media makes it out to be. The reason Mexico seems like a big deal is because their epidemiologists are only studying the extremeley sick in the hospitals. Plus their air is crap, its so polluted and it screwed up their respiratory and immune systems long before swine flu. Although swine flu weakened them more. If you're worried that you're gonna get swine flu start taking Tama Flu. It's available only by prescription, so call up your doctor. Yeah, my human sexualities professor explained it all.

Good Luck with not getting swine flu =]

Nope. Jade, be sure to wash your hands, get plenty of rest and manage your stress. Drink plenty of liquids, and try not to touch surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus. Got all that?

no, and I live in México HA!

watchout! theres morgan said...

i've been sick on and off lately, but no swine flu.
THERE WAS A JOKE AT OUR SCHOOL TODAY THOUGH! we had pork sandwiches at lunch or ravioli and some people had the pork sandwich. SO our principal made a "very important announcement" that ALL HIGH SCHOOLERS THAT ATE THE PORK SANDWICH NEEDED TO REPORT TO THE NURSES OFFICE IMMEDIATELY and everyone was freekin out. the nurses were asking weird questions like, DOES EVERYONE FEEL OK? and DOES ANYONE HAVE AN UPSET STOMACH? and there were people cryin and stuff but then they said it was a prank. i was like, wow. thats real funny guys...

Jesse Elaine said...

ugh, I'm so sick of hearing about the swine flu

'Un'Broken said...

yes...
no....
no... no... :]

Karlye said...

Luckily not yet, there's been one confirmed case of Swine Flu in Nevada, but luckily it's in Reno. I'm down near Las Vegas. However we're taking all the precautions down here, notices have been sent out by the school district to be careful/wash hands/don't touch nose or eyes or mouth a lot, etc. I'm hoping that it will end soon.

Anyone you know whose gotten it Jade? I know there have been about a dozen confirmed cases in SoCal.

Anna said...

No. The pigs and I have an agreement: I don't eat them, and they don't give me infectious diseases.

Anonymous said...

My best friend and I are in Jersey for Bamboozle and we went to New York city today...WE ARE SWINE FLU FREE! Let's hope we didnt get it! i would hate to not make it to bamboozle in the morning. It would be even sweeter if AFI was playing!!!!!!

Arth said...

The swine flu is a cover up for Somali pirate world domination.

Anonymous said...

It's technically called H1N1 now. Apparently it's hurting the pork "industry."

OneCoolNerd said...

Nope. But there's a guy in my county who has it, which means nothing if it's a largely populated county but it's not.

No - but I feel hella shitty from allergies

Derek said...

Yep *sneeze on your blog*

I've heard that we all become zombie pigs once we contract swine flu. Fact

Mandy said...

Nope... And I do hope it'll be controlled or gone soon!
Hope you guys are well :]

lol Swine flu has been around like a month and like 300 ppl have it and allll this rediculousness haha.
Media trying soo hard to scare everybody :P. Isnt this fear sh!t really getting annoying?

Zaina R Ahmed said...

The eastern hemisphere got bird flu, now the western has swine.

People dying isn't funny though.

Katie said...

I just happened to have a really bad case of the flu last week and I got it form someone at a concert in Sac...there happens to be a case of swine flu in Sac. IDK if I had it but I haven't been that sick in YEARS and I'm still getting over it.

Traci said...

No not yet. If this is whats going to kill me Im gonna be mad. Wouldn't you be mad?

VS said...

Yeah, me. It's the new kind that gets transmitted through blog comments.

Enjoy!

Michelle said...

Rainn Wilson has dubbed it 'hamthrax', or the 'aporkalypse' if you will.

InAHollow said...

A H1N1 is not yet in my country, but it's only a matter of time.

I don't quite understand what the fuss is about. It is only natural. This planet has been overpopulated by humans for so many years already, so of course nature will find its way to cut down the population, the same thing happens all the time(and have happened throughout this planet's history) with other species as the number gets too high.

Good luck to everyone! The Survival of the fittest!

Anonymous said...

Nope. There's only 51 cases in Canada and two in Alberta so that's not so bad yet.

Syvenseks said...

No, but I do have Pine Flu. Not quite as deadly as Brine Flu, luckily.

Anna said...

ha ha, i don't think anyone in australia actually has swine flu yet, but the government's getting all 'we have taken protective measures to protect all citizens' which is a load of crap - we don't even HAVE an inoculative for swine flu. i was watching the 7:30 report last night (a sort of in-depth review of the abc news items... i dunno) and they said that the best they've ever done with flu inoculations is produce something like 300 million over the time span of a year. and they're like, 'it's probably a pandemic, but no one needs to worry, cause they odds aren't high yet... but they might be, but still, don't panic.' you know, the odds of 1 death of of 2 million or two hundred thousand or whatever. so right now all our "experts" are monitoring whether it's a benign or malignant virus and then they'll take action from there. the best they've actually done is install thermal imaging cameras at the airports. but we're actually getting pretty worried down here, as we're getting INTO flu season... just as you guys are getting OUT of it (just our luck, eh?!)!!!
i have questions!!!!! a) is there even a sort-of vague release date for crash love or the ep? please tell!!! :) and b) will you be touring, if so, will australia be on your list????
can't wait for the new album... or the ep... whichever comes first! :) keep rocking and tell hunter and adam and davey they're awesome too (but not nearly as awesome as you... so there! ;P)

Hi Jade!!

How are you doing today??

No, I´m sure I don´t :D

Cheers!!

kirstie said...

Oh...oh...don't make me roll my eyes like that, Jade. Its nothing but a new strain of the flu. There's always a new strain of the flu. The only difference is that its out of season. If you get it...it'll be like the normal flu. Stop your worrying.

I would hope not. Is nonstop sniffles a symptom?

Paris Hilton's quote about the swine flu: "I don't eat that"

celinox said...

That was fabulous. I don't know how you find this stuff, but I thank you for it, shortayy

They should broadcast the news like that more often. Then they wouldn't have to create a mass panic all the time to get ratings.

Cherol said...

My friend has a bad cold and told me at work that she was sweating like crazy. My boss then said "LIKE A PIG?" and now she's paranoid and convinced that she has swine flu. She doesn't. But, it was funny.

Jacks1234 said...

Haha That is funny... I saw that earlier today actually, which is weird.
What they do with the voices to make them sound all sing-song-like is very cool what ever it is. It's sad that is what I pick up on from that video!

cilliii said...

Haha, that news are cool. ^.^

Hmm.. nope, don't have the swine flu, yet, and you won't get it, too. Don't stress yourself!

I think my Spanish/ German teacher, has it, though, or his wife, because they are not allowed to go to school now for some viruses they have. ôO

chaoskitten said...

lol! that's legend! XD

no i haven't caught it yet, but my friend went on holiday to Spain yesterday and she had a cold, so we're hoping she made past the Spanish border police without being put in quarantine! lmao!
she can't so much as sniff!

here's a weird news story that happenned in the west of ireland about two weeks ago, the farmer part is hilarious. poor guy! *chuckles*

I'm healthy.Oh,Devil!Jade,just try to get sick,do not even think about it!!Not pain;)

camilla said...

I keep telling my roommate she's got the swine flu, but I somehow doubt she believes me. Damn it.

Btw, are you aware of the fact that there's still snow on your profile and that it's, um, May? :)

impure0purest said...

so, I don't have Swine Flu, but I do have all the others... SARS, West Nile, East Nile, Mad Cow, Avian Flu, OCCCD -obsessive compulsive car crash disorder-... All that good stuff, mmhmm!

I'm praying it's just Spring allergies because all the trees and stuff bloomed here in the last two days but what, fever, stuffiness, sore throat, blah blah....I'm not going out with anything that has "swine" in its name so get ready for a fight, flu.....but it also doesn't seem as dangerous as before. Keep drinking water, Jade, don't kiss any babies and if you get it, write a song about it. Love.

Erin said...

I'm not sick with the swine flu, but my school is closed until they figure out if these six other kids here are! So if they figure out that they do have swine flu, school's closed for another two weeks AND we have to make it up over the summer. FUCK!

Kayleigh Control said...

Swine flu is bullshit. End of.


Love you Jadey xx

Wow, those guys are gods. I actually stood through 2:41 minutes of Fox News, which would normally leave me either extremely pissed off or wantign to punch someone in the face.

I got the flu the day Swine flu got big in the news. XD First time I've been sick in a year. Yaay.

I don't believe in Swine Flu...

dollfayce dropdead said...

That was hilarious.

+ This whole excitement over the Swine flu is really irritating me. Seriously, people, stop worrying.

Until every single person infected gets it, I'm not freaking out about it.

MC SpineFlu said...

Katie Couric definitely owns as a global-warming singer. Al Gore could use her in An Inconvenient Truth, The Sequel: I Told You So, Morons. Also, I hope you're not connotating Obama with an angry gorilla, because that man is smoooooth. Don't get spine poo, Jade!

I LOVE that vid- especially the Katie Couric part - who knew she could throw down beats like that!?

the best part of the swine flu will be when I fly home to Australia and get quarantined.
I think swine flue should be changed into Wine Flu, served with cheese and an evening with Macgyver.

Did you hear that countries were slaughtering pigs to be cautious?
This makes no sense because the flu is being passed from person to person.

I love people's logic...

Should we be concerned bout the "feeds" not the swine but yea I guess we should be concerned bout both -- oMG readiN a tweet from over the weekN: Jay-z dining at TAO (las vegas) clearly he's not tripN bout the "feeds" or [swine]flu fer dat matter - :]

Wow Jade, ya know you really got me thinking about the whole internet "stalker thing" you guys were talking about for a minute on Loveline. I'm really disinterested in the whole social networking thing. But(I can start my sentences however I want to!) I do love your blog due to its witty, humorous(forgive the anglophile hiding in my keyboard-typing muscles) content and such. Basically what Ah'm gittin' at is.. Can I read your blog without being a stalker? Please?

I almost wrote Lifetime instead of Loveline. Yes, I believe AFI is the missing ingredient of Lifetime.

P.S. Interesting show, I was cringing during some of the awkward moments w/ and w/out fans but I'll recover quicker than if I had swine flu! Kudos on the word matching thing! Very impressive.

What happened to Adam? Where is he in all of this? Still using a rotary phone?
No wait, that's Davey. Adam's busy being a pirate and doesn't want to be bothered with trivial questions and comments.
Lol. You are all going to kill me for being such a smartmouth.

any_mouse said...

Hey Jade, it was great hearing you and Davey on Loveline this week. A lot of us were hoping that you would have a chance to talk about what it’s like to be in a relationship with someone who has different values from you (i.e. someone who isn’t straightedge or vegetarian/vegan), but you guys moved on to a different topic after the commercial break. Maybe you can blog about it sometime?

I’m personally very interested in your thoughts, because lately I’ve been trying to go vegetarian, but my boyfriend isn’t interested in doing so. We’ve been together for a long time and we do everything together, so I’m not sure how this new development would affect our relationship.

Thanks a lot!

Sadly my stupid school hasn't closed yet. But we had a nice two hour delay :D Sadly I'm in an argument with my best friend D:

UniquenessInABox said...

Oh, swime flu... some of the first confirmed cases outside of Mexico were in my town, because we have this private school that has 100s of international students and about 10 actual Canadian students, and some of their mexican students had just come back from break, and the whole school got contaminated and put on lockdown. This is the thing that puts our event on the map: first cases of Canadian swine flu. How sad is that? Fun fact: 66% of all cases of swine flu in Canada are in my hometown. But no, I do not personally have swine flu.

C'est Moi. said...

Love the video... I'm totally crushin' on the dude with the glasses. I have a weakness for the nerdy gangsta type.

d'anna. said...

Everyone's killing this swine flu thing. It would be nice to have some days off of school, but now they've raised the level to a four, a near pandemic?! It's as dangerous as the flu, which we've all had at some point, and the only reason everyone in Mexico was wiped out is because they don't have very good health coverage. And that infant in Texas was twenty some months old. They expect his immune system to be that developed by such a young age? I just wish everyone would stop dragging this to such undesired lengths. Swine flu is not all that dangerous when you have your flu shot.

Ugh, I'd suffer through a Tokio Hotel concert before even thinking of attending a Jonas Brothers or Miley Cyrus concert. I have nothing against them personally, but their music... it doesn't click with me.

Alyssa said...

I effing love your new headline.

No swine flu in Montana, yet.
Personally, I think it's exaggerated.

Hey, I have a question about your newest poll. If you don't like Tokio Hotel, find them a nuisance, or whatever your reason is for putting them up there, then why would you remix RSG? Just wondering. Also when will we get any solid, official information about when the next AFI/BA cd will be out? Thanks Jade, you rock my exxxtreme socks.. (:
