i'm at home today...

i'm so sick i feel like i could die. i was at home for half the day yesterday, too. but instead of sleeping, i went to the korean market to pick up veggies to make chicken soup. and then i made chicken soup... and did the dishes and then played kirby air ride for a while. playing that game makes me want to eat marshmallows.



anyway, i suck at that game. i'm just bad at racing games in general, though...

ugh. i hate having the flu.

i'd better be all better by this weekend... but if i can't, i'd better be all good for our trip in a couple of weeks. sheesh. there's nothing worse than travelling while ill.

watched another episode of battlestar galactica... i just have to say again... the new version is so kickass. it's not exactly geared towards kids like the original series seems to be.

saw the first episode of long way around. i love ewan mcgregor. charley boorman, i don't really know who he is. i wonder if he's jealous of ewan's success... eh, what the fuck does he care, he has a beautiful wife and daddy's money.

at any rate, it's crazy, they're riding their bikes from london to ny, via mongolia, russia, some country i don't know how to spell, flying to anchorage and going all the way to ny. looks like it gets pretty hairy in later episodes...

steve went out last night and got halo2. the packaging is pretty fucking cool. i would take a picture, but i'm too goddamned lazy right now. it's pretty heavy... and it's silver... not like the normal videogame packaging. i was going to stay up and watch steve play, but i took this cough syrup with some serious codeine or something in it. typically, that doesn't affect me too much, but i may have had one teaspoon too many. hehehe... mmmmmm, prescription cough syrup.

he said it was pretty fucking cool, though. he said he had about 5 "oh shit!" moments... and he only played for an hour. i'm kind of sad that i have a cooking class tonight. then again, he has a business dinner to attend tonight, so THERE! YOU CAN'T PLAY EITHER!!!! :P

he also picked me up a copy of shrek 2. :) so, i'm a happy wife today... except for the fact that i'm fucking ill. eh, at least i'm home...

You should most definitly consume large amount of whisky and play Vice City: San Andreas. I would love to have one night were I get tanked and play something thats just obnoxious.

Get better soon! Do Koreans have any medicinal practices? My Vietnamese mother used to boil a huge pot of herbs and make us sit naked with it under a blanket and make us "sweat out" the sickness :(

Noooooooooooooooooooo! You can't be sick this weekend. I mean I don't want you to be sick at all...

Isn't pre-playing the game getting an unfair advantage over the rest of us poor schleps? Is Steve going to do a dance when he beats me?

I hope you feel better soon. Are you drinking tea with honey and lemon? That is what my mom always told me to take. I can't say that it really worked. Screw it, you need a Kahlua and coffee.:)

Hey, I certainly hope you feel better soon. I hate being sick and having to take sick days. I use sick days for me days...hehe.
I agree with you on Battlestar Galactica. I'm loving the episodes so far. I have a new one to watch when I get home, which is most likely the one you have already seen.
Oh, take a look at my blog for pics of the special edition Halo 2 package.

j: it's okay... i'll live... thanks for the sympathy, though. hehe

m: ugh! no whiskey!!! vodka, though? now, there's an idea... :)

q: yeah... there's lots of shit i COULD do... but prescription cough syrup is just more fun! :P

n: well, i'm hoping i'll be okay for this weekend. oh, and no... it's not really an advantage for steve to be playing now... i mean, he's already played the first halo... so... yeah... he already had an advantage :P heheh i'm guessing the controls are all similar. and no, there won't be any happy dances when he kicks ass. unlike mike :P probably just lots of smack talk. and yes, i'm drinking tea with honey and lemon. i can actually breathe when i'm drinking that...

g: yeah. re: battlestar, it's cool, right? except how they always make the asians evil!!!! that's okay, though. because we ARE! bwahahahahaha.

and yes, everyone should check out giest's blog for pics of the halo 2 packaging. it's awesome. also, apparently, he got a little action figure. i don't think we did :( giest.blogspot.com

sorry that you've got the flu. i'm so scared to get it; i can't be around anyone who's sneezing or coughing.

codeine is good stuff. just don't drive anywhere while you're taking it.

Poor sick baby. Okay, step one lie your bee-hind down. What are you doing, going to the market, making soup, playing games, blogging...okay well you can do those last two lying down but rest, Grace. Sickness is your body's way of saying "CHILL!" (too 80s). Seriously though, get some rest, relax, sleep and feel better soon! :)
