Tea. Cough drops. Films. Strawberries.

The sniffles finally became a full blown cold.
On Monday and Tuesday after work and tried to put something together but I couldn't think clearly enough which made me frustrated and try even harder to the point where my brain was awake but my body was falling asleep.
Yesterday at work that same feeling of cloudy-brain hung over me accompanied by a cough and sore throat. Halfway through the day I packed up and left work. Rich made made me promise to go home, turn on a movie and not do a thing. I curled up at the top of my bed in all the pillows and watched the first season of Gossip Girl. Perhaps this is the cold meds talking, but Chuck is fantastic. I'd kind of forgotten.
Today I stayed home and have stayed ont he couch watching Norwegian Wood, Bill Cunningham New York and Sherlock.
I made myself get out for a fe minutes to pick up strawberries, cookies and fancy juice. The only time I ever have a serious sweet tooth is when I'm sick.
Anyway, I'm finally starting to feel better and I thought I'd break the silence here. Thank goodness the weekend is in less than 24 hours. Oh, and I really do need a coffee table.


  1. That's a great way to recover and give your body a break -- and fluids.

  2. Aw, I hope you feel better soon! Gossip Girl is my no-fail way to make myself feel better!



  3. Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Feel better soon, Kal. I've been battling a similar thing all January. Finally starting to feel a bit better and hoping I'm on the mend but it has SUCKED! BTW LOVE that mug.

    Aw, rest up! Glad you've got Darth Vader to keep an eye on you!

  6. Aw, sorry to hear that! I know I got a bit sick right after the holidays from flying - Dry coughs, sore throat. It wasn't a cold - didn't have a runny nose or anything. It was just there being all sorts of annoying. Anyway, hope you get over it soon! Tea helps, especially for sore throats [and cold months!]. And that mug is awesome. For serious.

    [btw, Sherlock is SO GOOD. Can't wait until Season 3 is on netflix!]

  7. Oh gosh Sherlock is so good. I watched the first episode of the first series awhile ago but then got distracted by soapy dramas and Friday Night Lights, but I've revisited and am totally obsessed and can't wait to get home tonight to watch another episode!

  8. Sherloooock. Good idea. And I'm sorry you're sick!! I hope you feel better soon. x

  9. So sorry you're sick, but glad to hear you're feeling better. Despite the sick-part, all this seems like the perfect concoction for a relaxing Sunday afternoon. I need to watch Norwegian Wood since I've finished the book...how is it? x

  10. Meh, I gave it a 3 star rating on Netflix. It's really beautifully done, but it skims over a lot of the book and there are parts where the build up in the book is sort of wasted in the movie.

  11. I blame you for this obsession too (Dr. Who is another one I give you credit for).


Thanks for stopping by!
