you know what’s awesome? having the flu (not the stomach flu, thankyouverymuch for sparing me) and a fever and the aches and the pains and the sweats and the chills and a fucking remote that has dead batteries and your tv is stuck on CTS, family friendly television from the day before when you really wanted to watch Family Ties, but what you didn’t realize was that on Thursday at 4pm when you first got into bed with your plague, that CTS airs Little House on the Prairie. At least it was the episode where Mary thinks that Ma Ingalls is having an affair with the random dude who shows up to help finish their new kitchen. oh, i’m sorry. on the prairie they call it ‘Monkey Business’ and then Mary Ingalls kicks Nellie Olsen’s ass…oh, wait, maybe i do kinda like Little House on the Prairie. or maybe it was just my fever talking.
you know what else is awesome? not eating anything for two entire days other than two gatorade C2s and GAINING 2 pounds. i am pretty sure i’m the only person in the world who can accomplish that feat. i better get my appetite backÂ before Chrismukah…because i would sure rather gain weight EATING homemade Reese Cups (i promise to post the recipe this week! i sent it to Angella last year. she can tell you…they are SOOO worth it) than not eating.
you know what else is awesome? when the person working the drive-thru at Tim Horton’s DROPS your Tim’s card out the window and you have to move your car up and GETOUFOFTHECAR to pick it up, even though SHE DROPPED IT, and then she doesn’t even give you your coffee for free.
you what else is awesome? the packers. *weeps* and *weeps* The Packers without Brett Favre = epic fail.
you know what else is awesome? showing up 40 minutes early for your daughter’s holiday play and still only getting a seat back here in the nosebleeds…
grade 2 parents are keeners, y’all. regardless, she was the cutest little dreidel there ever was (that’s her, second from the left) and she ‘lit one candle for the maccabi children’ like no one’s business. (there just might be video of the little dreidel doing the little twist…but only if you’re lucky.
and when i say ‘if you’re lucky’ i really mean if i can make it through the day and not collapse after i get home from work and have a chance to upload the video which i hope actually happens because i also need to go to the gap and return the two turtlenecks i bought because even though their whole buy one get the second 50% off sale was GREAT, they failed to mention that their XS really actually is probably closer to a LARGE and when i put one on it went down to my knees and then i thought, “HEY, MAYBE IT’S A DRESS AND NOT A TURTLENECK!” but alas, no, it’s actually a turtleneck.
that is supposed to fit like this. i wonder if this model is actually 8 feet tall with incredibly long arms. i would have tried them on for you and taken a picture but i was nervous you’d all be “GAH! I’M BLEEDING FROM MY EYES, MIDGET! GET YOUR ASS TO A GAP KIDS” and then i’d be kind of humiliated. so, i’m just going to return the turtlenecks and maybe buy some tights that i can pull up over my head. because those are awesome.
