Friday Night Whine

It's been three weeks since I began coughing horribly. My cough is still with me, despite two rounds of antibiotics. I have to give up and go to the doctor again tomorrow. I am so sick of not being well. My life has been on hold for a month except for the most necessary tasks.

But, I did invite several people to the plaque ceremony on Valentine's Day., and most responded kindly that they would try to come. I hope I will not cough through it.

Arnold has been a comforting dog during my illness. He stayed in bed with me when I had my worst fever and chills. And he continues to be my companion as I rest frequently. And he doesn't make me talk. I suppose my profession, which involves talking animatedly and sometimes singing, has contributed to my slow recovery.

Convinced I had a deadly disease, I combed the internet for my symptoms. (Un?)Fortunately, they seemed to correspond most closely to flu and acute bronchitis. So I guess I won't be wasting away on a TB farm.

I have gotten used to the fact that the Starbucks gals know my name. However, I am rather embarrassed that the nurses at the doctor's office now know my name.

If anyone has any good suggestions for funny movies to help me get over myself, I would appreciate it.

Well, I like "Spinal Tap" whenever I'm feeling low. First and second season of "West Wing" are fun. "Diner" is an old standby.

Her name is Siobhan! Here she is in all her iconic glory, and I've also posted some recent photos of her. :))

My "fave" is
"The Bird Cage" with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane... it can still crack me up after the hundredth or so viewing.

If crude humor is your thing, then "The 40 year old virgin" is hilarious.

If witty, subversive humor is, and you're willing to head out in public, "The Matador" was pretty funny.

For classic humor, I'd go with "Airplane!" or "Raising Arizona." Either one of them is pretty darn funny.

Get well soon!

Two years ago I had the same type of thing, cold after cold after sinus infection after flu for about eight months. It's depressing, but you'll survive.

To help ease your pain:

Planes Trains and Automobiles (Steve Martin, John Candy)
The Producers (the original: Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder)
High Anxiety (Mel Brooks)
Being There (Peter Sellers)
When Harry Met Sally (Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan)
Naked Gun & Naked Gun 33 3/4 [skip the second, it sucks] (Leslie Nielson)
The Gods Must Be Crazy
True Lies (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis)

That's a good mix. Don't for get the hot chocolate!

Eight months! Bless your heart! I really feel bad complaining about 3 weeks now. But I'm sure I still will. :)
