These things

Just in case you ever need to take care of me when I have a cold, I'm gonna need a few things:
  • Green tea with honey. It's oh-so-manly.
  • Some broth-based soup of nearly any kind. Chicken tortellini soup sounds about right.
  • NyQuil. Capital N. Small y. Big fucking Q. Original Green Death flavor is just fine.*
  • Sleep.
  • Lots of sleep.
  • Tissues.
  • Quiet. 
  • A good book. Reading "The Collectors" by David Baldacci right now.
  • Pampering.
  • Warmth.
  • My hoodie skull pattern sweatshirt.
  • Plenty of episodes of Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Torchwood or anything else I haven't seen yet that is available on Netflix Instant.
And if you are a cat, you know who you are, please don't wake me up by sitting on my chest and yelling at me. That's very rude.

Actually, that last one applies to non-felines at all. Would hate to find this armless troll sitting on my chest in the morning. Ugh.

*h/t to Denis Leary, of course.

Ugh. I have the fucking cold, too. I think. That, or horrific allergies. Either way, I need all those things, too. However, no one around here seems to realize it, and I'm up at 6:30 every fucking morning, and cooking and running errands and all that shit.
I REALLY need that hoodie, though. MUST. HAVE.
Hope you feel better soon!

anyone who stoops to the level of hyperlinking to someone's site for the sole purpose of publicly humiliating them is nothing more than a base, uncooth cad!

if i had a glove on right now, i'd slap you across the face with it and challenge you to a duel...

Sybil - It's the hoodie that's most important.

Slyde - I know you are, but what am I?

Green tea with honey? Nah. Honey and lemon in hot (not boiled) water topped up with whisky, or brandy, or rum...

Then an extra shot of your spirit of choice. You get the egnaeral idea

You get the general idea.

Plus some really hot chili rich food. Decongests the head at a rater of knots.

Okay that was typo and repetition central.

Sue me (I'm not worth the money)

I might have to try green tea with honey. I normally just have it plain... of course, most of the time it's Stash Pomegranate Raspberry.
