So I've got strep throat! For the first time ever!
Up until now I've always been bullet-proof when it comes to this crap... in fact I was thought to be a carrier- which means I can get it, but it doesn't do anything to me and I don't become a disease-ridden pus-throated menace to society.
Until today. I guess the combo of getting a li'l older plus a whole weekend on hot pavement kinda got to me. I'm still trying to figure out from who I received this lovely opportunity to re-discover myself.
In the meanwhile, bad tonsils= steroids, antibiotics, ginger ale and ice cream!
I'm still hella excited that they actually had rum raisin at my local Target. Perhaps there's a britophile buying the ice cream flavors, because I was in the midst of sulking about the lack of Caramel Bunny Tracks when I saw Sticky Toffee Pudding in the Haagen Daz area. I looked a little farther south and there it was!
Rum Raisin Ice Cream.
As far as I know, Haagen Daz is the only ice cream maker on a national scale that makes this stuff. Even so, it's rare. The last time I had a regular supply of Rum Raisin ice cream was in Portugal in 1995!
Yum, yum, rum, rum.
Then a caring relative came by and dropped off a six-pack of Canada Dry ginger ale in BOTTLES! Another blast from the past.the really cute 10 oz. bottles.... and andily recyclable... though I might just save em for extra bevvy bottles for lunch- since they have plastic caps too and won't de-ionize my water.
Anyhoo, I've tried getting extra sleep and it's not working at all. My body just gets really antsy and I'm fidgeting all over the place. I get back on the computer, and I'm tired. Hmmm. Were it not for this fever I'd go outside and garden until I'm pooped out.
Wasted days are hateful...
So I'm logging onto the work network after this to get some crap-o-la done that I would be doing were I there.
That's it for now... will post more when I'm over this crap and have a moment to breathe....
