Under the weather

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?

Thanks for having my back, Scott.

Well, Cookie Monster IS looking a little "Al Roker" these days. Maybe next he'll get his stomach stapled. "L is for LIPOSUCTION!"

OH...and sorry you're sick. :(

Feel better soon!

Thanks. It's bad enough being sick, but even worse because it has been BEAUTIFUL outside lately. I was feeling a little better this afternoon, so I went to pick up some stuff from the library, exchange some socks at Old Navy, and do some grocery shopping. Big mistake. I couldn't wait to get home. Now I feel like crap again. Ny-Quil, take me away!

A little of my childood died when I read that on CNN. Sad.
What will we be hearing from him next? "C is for Cauliflower"? "C is for Carrot"?

Kate! How's it going, babe? I think we all know that "C is for moderate Consumption."
