March 14th, 2007


9:48 p.m. – That’s pretty much it. It’s time for bed. Still feeling pretty lousy, I have to say. Good night, folks.

9:03 p.m. – Home again, having orange juice.

8:28 p.m. – Headed “into town” to get more NyQuil and orange juice.

8:17 p.m. – Finished and submitted my Ghost Rider review.

8:01 p.m. – Crying at this movie, even though I’ve seen it before.

7:07 p.m. – Eating Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Pop-Tarts and a bottle of lemon raspberry water for dinner. Review is coming along.

6:09 p.m. – Okay, I bought, downloaded, and played through the TMNT game, and still have made very little progress on this Ghost Rider review. I’ve now put in the movie Stranger Than Fiction and will focus on getting this review done. Sickness update: my throat’s getting sore now. Blegh.

4:12 p.m – Am officially not going to improv rehearsal tonight.

2:30 p.m. – Got distracted by the Viva Piñata demo. Haven’t made any headway on the review. Feeling kind of lousy. :(

12:44 p.m. – Pizza has been eaten, an episode of Heroes has been watched, and the reason my new TiVo was so cheap has been discovered. The audio on the TiVo cracks and pops and cuts out completely. This is not good. Also, I’ve not made any headway on my game review because I’m chatting with people again.

11:34 a.m. – Pizza has been delivered: thin crust, half cheese, half bacon. Mmm! I am also downloading the Viva Piñata game demo and have started on my overdue Ghost Rider game review. I am also applying a dose of Zicam – are you familiar with this stuff? It’s goopy gel-like stuff that you apply to the inside of your nostrils to fight a cold. So gross. I’m trying it out to see how it does. So far what it’s done is gross me out.

11:16 a.m. – No food to speak of in the house, so I’ve ordered pizza from Monical’s to be delivered. Get this – they only take cash at the door or credit over the phone! No checks! Doesn’t make sense to me. I mean, they’re going to the place, right? So they know where the person lives, right?? As much as I didn’t want to give my card number over the phone, I’m hungry, so I did it. Gotta tip the dude in quarters now. Speaking of quarters, I am downloading the demo version of TMNT, which I suspect will make me buy and download the full version. This seems as good a time as any to remind you there’s a new TMNT movie coming out on March 23.

10:54 a.m. – Finally done with surfing. Chatting with people I don’t normally get to during this time of day because I’m at work made it take a bit longer. Now I’m headed downstairs to see what there is to eat since I am starving. I’m thinking about starting a movie, but I’m aware that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released for Xbox Live today, so I might just download and play that.

9:02 a.m. – Nutmeg had been batting at me for an hour or, so I got up and fed the cats. Now I’m having a bottle of Archer Farms Lemon Raspberry Spring Water (because liquids are important, don’t ya know) and I’m checking my daily blogs, comics, and forums.

3:06 a.m. – The best part of the NyQuil has worn off (the part that keeps me asleep) and I’m stuck with the worst part of it (the part that makes my brain feel like it’s been packed with cotton.) Not only does it feel like everything’s in slow motion, but my nose is runny and stuffed up at the same time. Back to bed for me.

    I hope you feel better, Mup. Being sick is no good, and that NyQuil thing too.

    Get well soon!

    :( Poor mup.

    get to feeling better….

    Can I suggest Alka Seltzer Plus (the dissolving kind, not the pill)??? The daytime version is good…and the NightTime formula puts you to sleep without the cotton-head feeling when you wake up. The trick is to dissolve it in very little water and drink it fast.

    Have you ever seen the episode of Viva Pinata when they all got sick and sneezed candy? :)

    Get better!

    I was feeling badly for you until I read your idea of body fuel . . . dude, you treat your body like shooshoo!

    I still hope you feel better & all though.

  7. mrross says:

    Also, Viva Pinata is an amazing game.

    All I need to know is if you reached the desired level of candiosity. There's tons of pointless information here, yet you left out that one vital piece (non pun intented).

    Hello! There were AT LEAST three phone calls from Kat giving you grief in there!
