Fun and Phlegm

So what does one do when one is sick in bed for 3 days?

Here's a list of what I did.  Feel free to poach these ideas for yourself the next time you're sick...

  • Sleep
  • Create a Facebook page for your blog and then realize that that's just silly because only, like, 3 people know you have a blog - so really, what's the point
  • Read 153 pages of a new book
  • Realize Bloomingdales is having a huge shoe sale online and buy two pairs (and immediately realize that you loved those 2 pairs because they are identical to 2 pairs that you already own)
  • Watch Season 5 of "Weeds"
  • Give in to book whoredom and buy 2 Kindle books off of Amazon
  • Immediately ditch previous half-finished book in favor of new Kindle book
  • Watch "Avatar" - twice
  • Try to lick elbow
  • Watch at least 15 hours of back-to-back Law and Order episodes
  • Sleep
  • Think about brushing teeth but don't actually do it
  • Read a few blogs
  • Comment on said blogs
  • Realize that your comments are incoherent but don't care
  • Go back to sleep
  • Check TMZ hourly to see if Lindsay has been arrested yet
  • Realize the Princess is now sick and drag sad tired sick ass out of bed to take care of her

The Princess and I are now kind of back on our respective feet.  Leaving the darkness of the sick den this morning and walking outside into the sun for the first time in 3 days was a bit harsh...

We've spent most of the evening coughing at each other.  I have better quality of tone, but she can produce more she wins.

I'm going to go work on my phlegm.


  1. awwww feel better both of you! Glad your writing skills and humor weren't affected :-)

  2. I love your artwork. When I write my childrens book (*snicker*) will you illustrate?

  3. How do you determine which one of you has produced the most phlegm? On second thought, never mind... we don't need to know.

  4. This sounds pretty standard for my sick days also.
    Obviously now I will be a Facebook fan!

  5. Feel better. Your comment on my blog was so so coherent.

  6. I'm going to attempt the elbow licking...ok wait, I just tried it while I was sitting here. Didn't work:( Btw, what is it about Law & Order that sucks you in and won't let you out!?

    Glad you're feeling better!

  7. As usual, awesome illustration! Hope you and the princess feel better soon!!

  8. A private L&O marathon! My kinda day!

    I'm glad you didn't lick the Kindle. Although I hear they come in delicious flavors now.

    Also, I buy shoes like ones I already have all the time. And I do the same thing with clothes. Lately, I've started thinking it would be worth doing a George Costanza "opposite day" where I do everything the opposite of how I've always done it. This might help me get some new clothes that are different than the ones I already have.

    Anyway, keep feeling better and getting lots of rest!

  9. Jojo, Giggles and Elle - Thanks, dolls!

    Suldog - I would love to illustrate the children's book that you are never going to write!

    Robert - Creative use of measuring cups.

    Salt - I am definitely caught up on stuff that I never wanted to watch.

    Mike - Whew.

    RN Mama - I am devastated that L&O was cancelled. What happens when I watch all 20 seasons and run out of new episodes of L&O...and SUV, and Criminal Intent and LA?!

    FabuLeslie - If I did opposite day with shopping, I would never shop. And that's just not an acceptable option.

  10. I was sure that I was going to have a clever comment by now... but I don't.

    I do hope that you and the Princess are feeling better... much better

  11. Your sick days sound fun!

    Feel better, and watch out for the sun.

  12. Such good luck on the phlegm.

    I just tried to lick my elbow and sadly, I cannot.

    I also just signed up as a "like" on your FB page, which is totally stupid, not your FB page, but the like thing. I'm a fan of your blog and I don't understand why they changed the lingo. It now reminds me of the notes 10 year old's send. Do you like me? Check the box, yes or no. Well, I checked the yes box, so there.

  13. I'm so with you on the Kindle thing. I'm so pathetic I've actually purchased Kindle versions of books I already own.
