Flurgh, Pt. 2 - the coughening

Still feel like crap, called the dr and asked if they would just send in a prescription for me since it's fairly obv. I've picked up what Emily had. That was at 9am. Still waiting for them to call it in. *cry* Eh meh ghed, I have things to do, give me modern healing!

Speaking of, it's Cinco de Mayo (which everyone knows, I'm sure) and I have a pot of black beans soaking, to be turned into this deliciousness later. I'm also going to make chicken flautas (god willing and the creek don't rise, translation: I can find my mojo) and a salad and if I felt up to it, there would be margaritas in my life, but I don't think I can take a margarita until this crud is gone. CAN YOU APPRECIATE THE SORROW?? Ay, yo soy triste.

It is GORGEOUS outside, so I think Imma take a glass of juice and a book and nap on the chaise. Sunshine is good for what ails me, I think.

Side note, because the Kentucky Derby is this weekend (whoo hoo!! Go Nehro! 6-1 odds, on the outside (ish) and loves a bit of open space to run. HORSIES!) I've had Stallioncrest on the brain (the crud has derailed everything) and thinking of more names for characters. Naturally the Derby is a great place to find funny names (even though mine are the best. Come on, Skidoodle and his evil twin Skedaddle? That's funny.) I realized that the GREATEST NAME EVER for a horse isn't something like "Watch Me Go" because you're just begging for a horse that stops mid-track, it's something like "Didn't Make The Cut" or "Put Me Out To Pasture" or "Just Waiting To Stud." True fact: horses can't have anything "obscene" in their names. Farts are obscene, too, but someone skirted it with "Odor in the Court." Hurr.

The horse world is weird. OK, eating soups now.

There are days when I hate you.

You get more done on your sick days than I do on my "well" days.

(Really, I lurves you. I hope the crud dies a horrible death soon.)

Well, when you're the only one taking care of three kids and a household, there's not much else you CAN do but soldier on, you know?

And thanks, I'm STILL waiting for my scrip, waaah.

If I lived close to you, I would have made you a fresh pot of chicken soup! yes sun is good for you when you're sick so go soak up as much as you can. Feel better! ^_^

Thank you on both counts! I think I'm going to haunt the pharmacy before that, tho. GIMMIE DRUGS, I NEVER EVER TAKE ANY, OMG. *cries*

Someone also skirted it with Hoof Hearted :)

I am cheering for Pants On Fire this weekend - LOL!

Ahahaha, that's a great one! I might have to steal that for future episodes. :D

I can't wait until Saturday, fastest 2 minutes in sports, WHEEEEE!

I will be spending Saturday with me own horse, who is not fast, but is handsome ;) I will listen to the Derby at the barn.

Then Sunday is the Formula 1 Turkish Grand Prix.

Lots of fast things this weekend :)

Naming horses is fun and frustrating. Sitting there with a pile of awesome ideas and the Jockey Club site open...HOPING.
17 spaces only, no numbers and as you said no naughtiness!

Half of my veiled Firefly references were denied by the family so far this year. There is one left that I think might make it. Also no one would let me name a horse RunsWithScissors.

I may cheer on Pants on Fire because I like the name. But I may switch to Twice The Appeal because he's the nephew of a friend's horse. We'll see.

You're only talking about how gorgeous it is outside just to tempt me to Texas, aren't you? I SEE THROUGH YOUR EVIL PLAN.

Ugh, I'm sorry you're still feeling crappy. :( Magic water?

The only place to see hats more ridiculous than the royal wedding is the Kentucky Derby. Fact.

Love your Ray Lamontangne reference. Hope you feel better <3

If you hang outside the school gates you should be able to pick up some drugs. Or was that just my school?

Get better, sicko!

Got the scrip, just waiting for it to knock this out. I don't feel quite so dead this morning, so that's good. :)

I have this thing about not letting fresh food go to waste, and I'd promised The Boy that I'd show him how to make some of this (they're both in Spanish, he and #2) so I had them help me in the kitchen. Have to say, it turned out DELISH. But I went to bed shortly after dinner. Heh.

Love you, Anne-Girl!

Completely off topic but I commented before with a different journal about how I was starting to watch Southland and I just finished the first season (I've been dragging it out) and HOLY SHIT. This is seriously one of the best fucking shows I've ever seen in my entire life. I love how none of the characters are pigeonholed, and I realized the rest of this comment is a spoiler. But yeah.

I MEAN SERIOUSLY, RIGHT?!@! One of the best shows on TV Hands Down. I can't wait to hear your reactions as you keep watching! It's fantastic, seriously.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
