On being bedridden  
(and not the kind I'd normally enjoy.)

Everything gets old after 2 days in bed.

I'm now watching a documentary on the history and evolution of the hardware store, which apparently teachers are free to record to show to their students, provided they stop showing it after February 11, 2010. I'm not entirely sure why on that date, but I'm sure it has something to do with anything beyond that just being cruel and unusual.

I used to think they were actually kind of funny, but if I see one more Enzyte commercial, I will totally go batshit and massacre an entire city block—preferably using the cold, dead carcass of the video professor. OMFG STOP.

Did you know that a mathematician invented the screw?

I swore off down comforters long ago, partially because of the stupid little feathers that get everywhere. Well, my down alternative comforter seems to have the same problem because I'm finding little, white feathers. wtf?!

The Shield is a horrible, horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE show that is NSFL.

No, really. I don't think you have any idea how horrible.

Duct tape was originally called "duck tape" (and here all this time I thought my dad just wasn't saying it right).

I hope there is no real medicine in cough drops or I'm going to end up in the E.R. from an overdose. I think I've gone through an an entire large bag in two days. I'm not sure if they really help, but they seem to make my throat feel better briefly.

The only thing worse than The Shield is the acting on The Shield.

Judge Judy would totally kick Chuck Norris' ass.
Mood: sick
Listening to: Modern Marvels

just the screw in general? or one specific kind? (e.g. flathead, philips, the square canadian one...)

and isn't duct tape that's called "duck tape" a specific BRAND of said duct tape? i can't remember.

hope you feel better.

actually that makes me feel better, because I thought duck tape was a particularly dumb name.

although... i can't believe two guys dressed in duct tape on Modern Marvels lied to me.

they never bothered me before. i actually found them kind of amusing in that 12 year old way i love, but after the 20 eleventy billionth time of seeing his smiling face, i kind of want to cut him so bad he'd wish i never cut him so bad.

the original flathead. Apparently the philips head was made by John P. Thompson and only sold to some dude named Henry Philips&8212;a fact I only still recall because I IMed it to my friend as I was being told this.

And unless I was just snoped by The History Channel, duct/duck tape was originally named "duck tape" for its water-proof qualities but later became popular in A/C duct work later in the century. But this was told to me by two men wearing duct tape, so who knows. I'm also not ruling out the influence copious amounts of sinus medication and pain killers may have had on my perception.

I'm not sure, but I think it's a form of the plague, albeit one apparently not met with the sweet release of death, because my pain lingers.

(The doctor thinks it's a bacterial infection I caught when I flew after not getting any sleep the night before. Apparently it's going around.)

Enzyte commercials are funny, but the Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra ones are the best for those 11 wonderful words:

This was...incredibly entertaining, notwithstanding the fact that you're sick, but at least you can still be humorous. I hope you feel better!! And yes, the Shield is awful. And down...anything just really weirds me out, the feathers poke you for God's sake!

aww sorry to hear that you are still feeling sicky. :(

you have 21 days to get better before pride weekend !!

oh and the enzyte rant, totally right there with ya ! the only part that i still find amusing and yes even rewind is when the guy n' girl at the table are talking and he mentions he is using it, and she is all for your muscles or whatever and he goes 'NOOOOO!' the way he says it and the face he makes always makes me laugh, kinda like you and heinous. tooom tooom (or however you would write out the L&O gavel sound haha).
