The dreaded Γρίππη

Γρίππη is, roughly, 'flu, (influenza, from the Spanish for 'influence', from the belief that it is caused by some sort of miasma), and the Greek word fairly obviously derives from the French 'La Grippe'. Anyway enough etymology; suffice it to say that I've got it, so don't feel up to writing a proper blog post; indeed I've had to postpone an urgent translation job. Normal (or as normal as it gets) blog service will be resumed as soon as I feel a touch better.
