Suip. - Ldy, the lemony, ligerish ducttaparian's Magic Treehouse of Lost Thoughts
A classy broad's life... with footnotes.
Ugh. The office admin brought something into the office today and shared it.

Sharing is caring, but I'm none too happy.

Namely because I seem to have come down with the something.

And whatever it is, I don't like it.

I got into megacomfy clothes and napped when I got home. I was so cold I just shivered beneath the blanket. I had vivid, bizarre rather involved dreams in which I woke up to someone in my house three times in quick succession. I think once was my Mom, once was Michele and once was Kristin. A dream within a dream within a dream. Very strange. Then the nice lawn guy woke me up. I gave him money to go away.

I'm cranky and my head hurts and I'm cold and I think I have a fever and I'm supposed to be studying lines but blahblahblahblah Idonwanna.

Would somebody bring me over some soup? Pretty please?


Harrumph. I'm going to eat the only soup (mind you, I've spelled that as "suip" three times now) in the house-- hearty black bean. I can't help but say that in a booming deep voice. Mmm. Hearty black bean suip soup. Yuck. I mean, "yum."

It's not my favourite soup. In fact, this can is probably as old as my cat.

My significant other, my life partner, my helpmeet, and the love of my life* just picked up a chick flick and Chinese food. Including soup. You'd think he'd stop by and share. Nurse me back to health. But noooooooo. Twelve hundred miles is tooooo faaaaaaaar. Whiner.

He even blamed the chick flick AND his late fees on me to the video store guy. Don't blame me, dude. I wanted to see Spaceballs.

Harrumph, I say again. I've lived alone long enough to have turned from a helpless whiny sick girl to a curmudgeony self-sufficient sick broad.

...at least as long as there isn't anybody else in the house who can make me soup, anyway.

*tromps off to make icky soup*

* all the same guy, in case you'd wondered... but if you have soup, and are willing to travel, I'll negotiate**
** I don't actually mean that. Unless it's really good suip.
*** I so wish he were here.

I'm feeling all kinds of: harrumph!
What I hear: me shivering and harrumphing

That's what I say! But every time I break out the whip, he runs away.

Progresso? I love that soup. Although, I have to admit, most of the time I just add some cumin to it and mix it with a pot of rice.

I imagine it would be very good on rice. I read the label and realized why I never ate it-- it contains pork. Mamma always told me not to eat anything smarter than half of congress.

OK, she never really said that. And I will indulge in bacon once or twice a year. But I do generally steer away from pork!

Hope you feel better. If I were there I'd make you my kick-ass chicken soup and bring my Spaceballs DVD over.

And about earlier... I had a good long conversation with Josh. I'm waiting and calming down and trying to let go and squelshing panicky feelings... OK, well, I'm trying to do these things.

I'm OK.
You're OK.
I'm OK.
You're OK.

We're OK. Ish. :)

I would bring you some soup if I knew how to cook!

I can always charge it on the credit card though.

I'm good at that.

Feel better missy.

Thank you. I'd better! So much time, so little to do...

Without getting mono, try getting sick for about a month and a half straight, first laryngitis and then the flu. I empathize, sweetie!

Pay the lawn guy to go to the store and get newer and better soup.

*hugs!* Sick for a month? Oh, what an awful thought! I can't remember the last time I missed more than one day of work in a row.

Lawn guy didn't show back up today. Thinking my sick slobby self scared him away.

M was nice enough to offer to bring me some soup this evening, though, so all is well :)
