Happy Flu Years


Okay, I knew the plan was to spend a quiet New Years on the couch. But I wasn’t planning to spend it on my back hopped up on flu meds. Dammit!

I’ve been sick for days. I’ll chug a bottle of Buckley’s or something tonight. I’ll be back with an update soon! There will be pictures!

There will also be crafty updates! Think fish. Yes, fish.

Okay, back to my flu delerium. Could someone please stop the earth from spinning? I’d like to get off 😦

    OK I stopped the world from spinning, but then it started right back up again. Sorry! I hope you feel better soon. 🙂

    Have a shot of Tequila while eating a bowl of menudo. It will kick almost any illness in the ass.

    @ Curious C: I’m getting there, I’m getting there. I’m back at work at least!

    @ Peter: If ordering Swiss Chalet delivery twice in one day is ‘taking care’ of myself, then yes, I will do so 😉

    @ Birdpress: These fish tails smell like…um, flowers? Or something else…pretty? You’ll see, you’ll see, I show!

    @ JoanHarvest: Thanks Joan, I’ll be back soon!

    @ Ginny: Awww, you seem like the kind who knows how to make a good soup too. My grandmother used to make this soup that I could literally drink a dozen bowls of, maybe I should call her 😉

    @ David: Haha! I quote the Simpsons at least a few times a day. That’s awesome.

    @ PureEvyl: Ha, that sounds like a plan. Isn’t Menudo a band?

    Feel better and Em…I ALWAYS have those conversations. Therapists, boyfriends, parents. Having these one-sided conversations in which I play dual roles as me and the current antagonist plaguing my life, are ways in which I can work out many details in the fucked up inertia of my life. Some people might think it’s nuts but it gives me clarity.

    Glad to know I’m not alone.

    Happy New Year.

    @ Laurie: Sweet, we’re similarly nuts!

    @ Mike: Thanks! I heart New York.

    @ JavaQueen: I don’t mind the dizzies when I’m at home on my couch watching cartoons. Not so much when I’m at work.

    @ Romi: I know, I’m like “What? Sick? Me? I don’t have time! Too much life-ass to kick!”

    @ NurseMyra: That sounds like a recipe for good times! I shall partake!

    @ Javajunkee: I’m getting there! It’s Friday now and I’m just starting to feel back to my usual self though my ears are still messed. I should be up for a full post this weekend!
