Fill in the _____ Friday

  1. On a scale from 1-10, the frequency with which I get sick is... probably 4 or 5, I guess. But when I get sick I tend to get two different illnesses back to back and be sick for at least a week.
  2. The last time I felt sick was... Wednesday, but that was just side effects from some medication. All better now. Unless of course you mean heartsick at the state of the world, in which case that's, like, all the time. (I guess it doesn't come across in a blog post, but I was immitating those college kids who get all pseudo philosophical and go on for hours about humanity and Freud. Or Jung. Whoever.)
  3. The worst part about being sick is... being sick... because... it sucks.
  4. When I am sick I like to be taken care of by... depends how sick. Anywhere from my cats to the emergency room staff.
  5. Something I do to keep myself healthy is... I'm trying to cut out as much sugar and simple carbs as I can and eat more salads, grains, protein and fruit. Hence the dearth of mini pies. It's really depressing so far.
  6. A secret remedy that I use when I'm sick is... it's not exactly secret, but NeoCitran usually does the trick if it's a regular flu.
  7. One thing that always makes me feel better when I'm sick is... pyjamas, warm blanket, hot beverage and some truly, truly terrible TV.

Thanks to Lauren at The Little Things We Do for the blanks! Head over and link up!


  1. oh my god I hate being sick soo much- I turn from an independent take charge woman to a puddle of pathetic, tears and whining and all. I'm worse than sheldon from the big bang theory. My apologies to any person who is stuck with me while I have a fever. I tend to always get more than one thing when I'm sick as well. Like my mom says- when I do something its go big or go home. Like this last time I got the stomach flu and an infection at the same time. awesome....not so much haha!

    1. I'm totally the same way. And I make everyone around me suffer! Very much like Sheldon. What is it with tag-team sickness??? That's what's been happening to me the last few times too. And the illness is getting worse. Whatever happened to a flu that makes you feel crappy, but only to the point where you can still sort of enjoy staying in your PJs all day watching the type of TV you normally don't admit to? Here's to staying healthy for the summer!

  2. You sound just like me! TV and pjs make everything better!


    1. Can't go wrong with that combo... even when you're not sick sometimes! ;)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Bahaha I totally got the whole college kid thing. I make fun of those kids all the damn time.

    No more mini pies? The world is over! Also, pj's, a blanket & bad tv are a must when I'm sick. A big bowl of ice cream helps too :)

    1. I actually knew some of those kids in college and university. I particularly liked making fun of the ones with the wire-rimmed glasses and jaunty caps.

      Nary a mini-pie in sight. It is over. And what's left? Buckets and buckets of kale. *sigh*
