Consumed/Used: an entire box of Kleenex and fudgsicles, several containers of ramen noodles, 1 bottle of Robitussin (started on my 2nd), and half a box of Alka-Selzer Cold & Flu in the two days last week I was out sick. I was still not feeling the best, but email called so it was back to work. While I was sick, I started my period too so last week won at major suckage. I thought I had a cold, but I’m pretty sure it’s allergies. It’s awful. I had them bad when I was a kid, but it’s been years since I’ve struggled with them this much. Mearl had her spaying surgery on Wednesday afternoon, and I think she feels better than I do!
Watched: countless hours of Gilmore Girls, The Bat, Carl Dreyer’s Vampyr, and George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. There are some of those that I would be hard pressed to provide a plot on as I kept falling asleep. Night of the Living Dead was the best. The others were okay, but I don’t have to see them again.
Wanting: besides all things Pumpkin Spice flavored (my award winning spouse brought me home Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and Pumpkin Spice Twinkies last week when I was sick), I’d like this Bill Haverchuck shirt from Etsy. Kelly had me watch all of Freaks and Geeks once and about a year after that, I confused a memory of Bill’s childhood with Kelly’s, and they remind me of one another as kids–or what I picture Kelly like as a kid. If I can’t get the shirt, I’d settle for the charm below because I like associating my young husband with Bill. OR OMG, I JUST FOUND MY MONSTER BABY BROOCH!!! YOU GUYS WHO ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HEAR THE STORY ABOUT WHEN I HAD MY MONSTER BABY WHICH IS, HANDS DOWN, THE BEST STORY I TELL, MY DREAM HAS COME TRUE AND I CAN OWN MY OWN DON KNOTTS THAT RESEMBLES THE ONE I HAD BACK IN THE DAY. I CAN EITHER GET A BROOCH OR THE SPECIMEN BELOW, BUT I MAY GET BOTH. OMG. TIME HAS STOPPED. PLANETS ARE SHIFTING. IT HAS HAPPENED.
Kelly suggested yesterday we run over to Memphis for a thrifting date and to go out to lunch, and since it’s been ages since we went to the city we love so much and were married in, we were off! There’s never enough time in Memphis, but we did visit several of our favorite thrift stores (one new one) and The Four Way. The Four Way was amazing! I had the turkey and dressing and Kelly and the fried chicken. I highly recommend trying it out! I’m checking the internet for chili recipes to make today. I’m craving a bowl even though it isn’t cold, yet. Something spicy!
