Excrement. That's what I feel like right now. Coughing. Feverish. Sore throat. Ugh. It's the kind of sick where I expect Grandpa to come over and read The Princess Bride to me (too bad I don't have any Grandpas left). So today's post will be short. Maybe I'll resurface again tonight.
News alert! Cookie Monster will advocate moderation when the new season of Sesame Street starts.
Guest star Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (!) says, "Even Cookie Monster is learning to control his cookie cravings. His sage advice opened our eyes to the simple joys of a tasty cookie and now reminds us that moderation is the key to healthy living." CM's even got a new song: "A Cookie Is a Sometimes Food."
Okay, I'm not one of those who cries "George Luca$ raped my childhood!" whenever the pop culture that I grew up with is changed or given to some revisionist history. BUT HE'S THE FREAKIN' COOKIE MONSTER! The dude gets off on scarfing down a couple of plates of cookies.
What's next? Miss Piggy going all South Beach on us?
