Blog Stuff: 59th Street Bridge has collapsed on me (Feelin' ooky.)

It must be time for my annual bout with... whatever it is I seem to get afflicted with. Headache, fever, sore throat, achy joints... blech.

I don't even feel like sitting on the porch with a book. Of course, it's like 39 and icky out there, but I wouldn't feel like it even if it was sunny, calm, and a balmy 75 degrees. I'm going to take a long, hot bath, then climb into bed and draft a cat into performing heating pad duty.

Just the latest Asian import making the rounds. It sounds like the flu.

Put the cat to work. The indolent beasts need to earn their pay.

Don't forget the hot toddy.

Man, sorry to hear that.

I feel GREAT. ;)

My cat absolutely loves it when I get sick. I don't move nearly as much and I'm nice and toasty. It's a helpful symbiotic relationship that way.

The dog hates it. I don't feel like going for walks or playing, and since there's something wrong with me he feels he's been assigned to 24/7 guard duty. He keeps checking to see if I've magically healed in the twenty minutes since he last checked and suddenly feel like fending for myself again.

Man's best friend my hind foot.

Oh, and feel better. My favorite hot toddy recipe is two shots of brandy, two spoonfuls of brown sugar, water, a cinnamon stick, and nuking the thing in the microwave for about a minute and a half. It's amazingly soothing on a sore throat.

I've had the same thing since EASTER!

Hope you feel better, SOON!

If hot toddy doesn't work, make sage tea. Use dried sage & the hottest water you can tolerate. Then tell your overlord- er- cat not to experiment on you for a while.

+1 on the obscure song reference.
Al Kooper's version on his live album is better that that wimpy Simon and Garpunkal version.

So it wasn't just tax time what done it to you? I hope you're feeling better by now.

Here's the day after "I hope you're feeling better".
