Sniff... Snot... Ouch!

Yesterday, despite my excitement about seeing Mr. Williams live, I felt like crap. I woke up because I was sneezing up a storm. I took some drugs, made my way to my hairdresser for an overdue haircut and while sitting there I lost count of how many times she had to pause for me to sneeze and blow my nose. When I came back home I drugged myself up good and fell asleep until Hubby came home.

We walked to the theatre with a short pit stop for some Hot & Sour soup (one of my comfort food when I’m sick) in Chinatown. I took some more drugs just to be sure I wouldn’t be sneezing during the show. I didn’t want to take any chance of becoming a distraction or part of the show for Mr. Williams, since we were sitting fairly close.

Speaking of which, what a show! I loved it! I particularly enjoyed the fact that he adapted the show to the fact that he was in Montreal, Quebec. He talked about local issues like only he can. It was a great show, and if ever that show comes out on DVD I will make sure to get it. His brain is truly amazing, despite or because of his addictions, no matter what, he’s a great entertainer! It felt good to laugh like that despite everything.
Thank you dear Hubby for a lovely gift – you’re the best!

I slept well, thanks to the magic of drugs. I did have a really weird dream (as if they’re not always!). My ex client did pay me. I received their cheque this morning. Now, let’s see if it clears… Hee.

I feel worst today than I ever did after a belt testing in karate. Back then, I had bruises to explain why I was feeling that bad. Today I feel like I was run over by a bus, and to make sure I was down for the count, the bus backed up and run over me again. My ribs are so sore from all the sneezing. Just tried to cough, oh dear! It’s a good thing we got our flu shot again this year.

I really feel like I’m aging… my body is screaming it… no matter how young my head might feel, my body is not agreeing; at least not today. If you’ll excuse me, I need to lube my nose and blow again…argh. Ouch! Damn it!

I'm SO glad your client paid you!! And that you had a great time and that your hubby loves you so much.

I'm sorry you feel poorly though. Thank God for tissues with lotion in them, eh? ;)

Did your ex client actually pay you, or was that the weird dream? And I'm sorry you feel so badly. Chicken soup...lots of it. :-)

Boo, hope you feel better soon! Feel a bit guilty, as i was just the same on tuesday - only just recoving now. Maybe i gave you a computer virus.

Please don't rupture yourself laughing at my appalling joke.

Oh, that sounds awful. Monkey posted a home remedy the other day that involves vodka, but if you don't have any vodka, well, you can probably substitute gin. Feel better!

hi saw robin williams in college. even if his material is sometimes dates, he's a damn funny man. i just wished he'd never done Patch Adams. it hurts my soul.

pppaws: You almost read as if you were making fun of me! That's ok I can take it! ;-)
I love my tissues with lotion even if I need more lotion than that for my nose!

marius: I must say, that part of my post was weird - I blame the drugs! My ex client did pay me, that wasn't the dream. :-)

pigeon: Hello Stanger! You don't visit often enough to have shared your virus (computer or other). Hee.

flurrious: We have vodka and gin, but I don't drink, so... Orange juice and lots of water it will be! Thanks!

kara: Williams is great! He was actually very up to date, some jokes were very Canadian and even Quebecois (which I loved) and he, of course, talked about Palin, Mc Cain & Obama! It was really worth the $$ and me being there even if sick!

I am so sorry you are under the weather and probably sicker than a dog!
I do hope you feel better soon and drink lots of water!
Sorry, that's the motherly side of me coming out!

(hands you a tissue....and then the whole box!)
