Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Wednesday, November 29, 2006


It is the holiday season, after all.

Yup. I'm sick. After several fake-outs in recent weeks, it's finally hit me. Feels like the usual holiday bronchitis, albeit on the mild side.


(Here's hoping the coming months don't see a repeat of last winter/spring, when I had three terrible bouts of respiratory crud in four months. Good times.)

I will say I'm thankful it waited until AFTER my Thanksgiving trip to hit me hard, though I was feeling kinda dry and scratchy and sneezy while I was in Diego (as a college dormmate used to call it). And I'm thankful it waited until AFTER last night's (fab, natch) Barenaked Ladies show to really fuck with me (though I did cough up a big phlegm ball just before we went to our seats. Isn't that a nice image??). And that it's hitting me BEFORE my big Christmas trip to New York.

So I can't complain too much. But you know I will...

As for my trip, it was grand. I'll share more details later, as I'm sleepy AND all doped up on over-the-counter medication right now. And I'll be catching up with all of you...

And coming soon to Dork-o-Rama... actual photos actually taken by the actual ME! *

*this, once my dear pals are able to send me the fucking camera cables I fucking left in a fucking shopping bag left for trash in their home. fuck me.

**EDITED TO ADD THIS AMAZING NOTE FROM MY PAL KIM (under the subject line "lung season or whatever"):

"guess what i just found out last week? this time of year, according to chinese medicine, is the time ofthe lung...hence...i'm thinkin', lung crap/sickness.

i went to get acupuncture treatments last week and the woman...asked me about other stuff going on with me and we ended up talking about how i ALWAYS have stuff going on in my chest this time each year. huh. who knew. lung central."

OH. MY. GOD. I need to know more. This is fascinating...

Fucking lungs. Fucking sickness. Fuck.

Get some good drugs...especially some prednisone. It's been my drug of choice for three days now. I feel like a crack whore...all strung out...but at least I can breathe. We all have a price to pay in life!

Feel better!!!!

Awww. :( Blankets and Alkaseltzer Cold Plus. That's my recommendation. And then get a total body rub from a hot man. You'll feel better in no time!
