Went out to dinner at a friends last night... sort "glands" in my throat started mid afternoon...
got so much worse over the evening.
We bailed and I was in bed by 10:30...
just ... crap.
I'm getting a mean cold.
No fever... so not the flu.
~ eh... jeans and a tee... then warm stuff... even though it's gorgeous out. :(
~ (it's 7:18 as I type this bit and honestly, I've felt like total crap all day. I'm saving the "cold cap" for 8:00 and bed soon after. )
~ woke up at 7:30... got up alive and kicken but still sore-of-throat. :(
~ puttered and enjoyed a quiet house in daylight until the fam woke up at 10:30... 11:00 ish.
~ got groceries this 'aft.
~ now I'm making trout for dinner and ghirardelli chocolate brownies in the oven for dessert
~ AR is on tonight... :)
~ hoping to feel better tomorrow... sigh.
~ to send some good vibes to nosneros_h... for the good times to keep on a'rolling.
~ for kitiara to keep warm... lest trouble ensue... (lol)
~ and to send cynica some of Samson's strength and Solomon's resolve. (go you!)
See, ok... you know the show "Real Housewives of New Jersey"?
This is a perfect example of what sticks in my craw* about reality shows like this...
Take the "cast member" [:: Danielle :: ] for example...
Now how the heck is it...
that when faced with this obvious an example,
everyone else on the so-called reality show...
does not immediately recognize her as a space alien?
There is something delightful about hearing a woman use the ever pop pop popular c-word in casual conversation.
Not as a raging explitive, like your husband pulls off his shirt saying 'Honey, ack... big itch, can you scratch my back?"
And there's some other womans soiled thong dried to his back hair... then ok, she uses the word as a total explitive,
lots of rage... and that's cool. That particular woman can do what ever the hell she wants at that stage...
No, I mean when it slips out quietly as a descriptive... an adjective supporting a reference to so-and-so about such-and-such.
"Jenny was all up in arms about the shit she's doing to try and catch her douche bag of a husband cheeting with that little cunt Veronica."
Ok... I threw douche bag in there, and I prol'y should have left it out... but, truth be told, douche and / or douche bag is getting good air play and can be stunningly appropriate.
Take Taylor Swift's "musical monologue" on SNL this weekend... even little Taylor got douche in there... :D
But I digress.:)
Just say'en... it's your loss if you live your life as a word-ist.
All words are created equal and deserve to be treated as such.
pssst: those brownies take forever to cook and you should go for "thin" not thick...
But never-the-less... wicked good choco freak out brownies. :D
* what the hell is a craw?
