I am going to live. As my old man said, “You get to where you think you’re gonna die, then you pray that you will…” And he was right, as far as that went.
But now I’ve decided I don’t want die just yet and that sentiment firms up more and more as the nasty old flu recedes in the rear-view mirror. So while I didn’t get what I really wanted for Christmas (health) I got it later, so it all worked out. The worst of the coughing is over and not a moment too soon since it cracked my neck every single cough.
Now I am just going in fits and spurts of being wiped out and then getting energy back off-on throughout the day.
See the energetic furry creature below? She got spayed today and the poor dear is pretty uncomfortable. Yes, even the Furry Little Black Dress of Evil can suffer.
We gave Lemurita an MP3 player for Christmas and she asked me to load it up with some of my music after she went to bed. I have a huge collection of digital music but not all of it is exactly acceptable for a 10 year old. Butthole Surfers, Circle Jerks, Henry Rollins, Metallica, the Doors… nah. I did give her AC/DC Hell’s Bells (she loves that one), some Rod Stewart, Don Henley, bagpipes, etc. Not sure about The Who, Shawn Mullins, Tom Petty, etc.
By the way – if you have not seen the movie Limitless, I would HIGHLY recommend it. I said to Cruel Wife, “Ok, I have to admit that if I was in his shoes I don’t think I could have done anything differently – it would be that seductive, especially to my brain.” It is NOT an anti-drug movie. It’s not a pro-drug movie. It’s a movie with a drug that the movie centers on but what a fun ride the movie is.
