And I've Never Been to Boston in the Fall*...

Thanks for all the nice comments while I was under the weather... you people are kewl. ;-)

Since I did go back to work today... which means I had to do today's work, plus everything I missed yesterday... my brain is a little dead. I don't have much for this bloggy thing here. So, we'll have to settle for a few observations I've made in the past couple of days:

1. There is a big (HUGE!) difference between "water-resistant" and "waterproof" when it comes to sitting at a football game for 4.5 hours in the rain. Big. Huge.

2. When you forget about how to keep your hands dry in the deluge, you notice that your skin actually becomes quite translucent, in addition to puckering around your fingertips. It's an odd look at best.

3. You realize that you are somewhat unkind after laughing at the idiots who wore white pants with their red shirts at the downpour, I mean, football game... the kind of red shirts that, when wet, will "bleed" onto anything white. Like white pants. Definitely unkind. Still funny, though.

4. When you are sick and all alone at home, you realize that it's okay to cry a little during a movie you thought was supposed to be all-funny-all-the-time, but turns out to be a total chick flick. Nobody saw those tears.

5. Thank you, whoever you are, for the invention of On Demand Digital Cable. I was not stuck watching the usual drivel that comprises daytime TV. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

6. Even if you don't eat a thing for 24 hours, the stomach flu doesn't care. Yeah... you're still making that trip, and you know exactly where it is.

7. When you're not feeling well, and your teenagers sing anything from the Silly Songs With Larry CD, one of those songs will make you smile. At first. Then you'll be cursing Larry and all the other Veggies for those damn songs that are now permanently stuck in your head!!! We're the pirates who don't do anything... Gah.

8. If you're so sick that you can't even sit at the computer to read a few blogs... you're going to get WAYYYYY behind. :-(

That's it. That's all I got.

*See number 7.

At least your team won! How was the new and improved stadium?

don't call me MA'AM said...

Yeah, that was a real nail-biter, that one. ;-)

The new stadium is pretty cool... we even sat in the new section. I think it's a keeper!

Glad that you're feeling better! What movie was it that made you cry "invisible" tears?!

MiMaw said...

Aww...you're not always a Grumpy Frump. What flick made you whimper?

Reliant K do a great cover of The Pirates Who Don't do Anything.

Love it.

What was the movie?

See everyone suffers when I upgrade. I can't comment normally on yours either.

I'm glad you're feeling at least marginally better! I, too, want to know the movie that made you cry.

don't call me MA'AM said...

The movie was In Her Shoes... which I put off watching for the longest time. I have 'sister' issues (nothing serious, but we sometimes get along great, other times... not so much). Movies about sisters always make me cry.

Plus, I love Toni Collette. I don't always love Cameron Diaz, but she was good in this movie.

So, to all who asked... there it is.

wire: I just happened across Relient K's podcast today. I'll have to look for their cover. :-)
