meh. sick.
I have the flu. Aching joints, sinuses stuffed to bursting and a bastard of a headache behind the eyes. As Withnail said so daintily, "I feel like a pig shat in my head."

5 people in Dallas have died of West Nile Virus. I hope I don't have that shit. I think I'm too full of spleen for such a pathogen to really get a grip - there's only so much room in here.

I'm glad that bitch Keith got booted off Project Runway for cheating. I knew it would be him - he was the only one arrogant enough to flaunt the rules so brazenly. And it wasn't the only questionable thing he'd done in just this one episode.

Anyhoo, since I'm not up to a marathon typing session, I thought I'd give you a quiz.

One of my maternal cousins lives in the same building with one of the world's most famous Scientologists. Can you guess which one?

Big sloppy kisses and my eternal admiration to the winner.

Uh, I thought Scientologists all lived together in a compound somewhere in the desert, like Mormons. Hm. Maybe Isaac Hayes?

Remember, lots of fluids. Vitamin C. Narcotics are cool too. Don't want to loose ya now that I've found ya.

phlegmfatale said...

Nope, not Isaac Hayes. I will give you one hint: they kickin' it west coast style. OK, 2 hints - you wouldn't want to be their neighbor.

phlegmfatale said...

Oh, and thanks for the tips, and it's good to know I'd be missed if I shuffled off this mortal coil. I'm feeling a little better this morning, so I'm going to try and put in my 6 hours on the chain gang today. We'll see how far I get. I really got sick on Sunday, but it only started kicking my butt Tuesday night, and now I think I'm past the worst.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Wait a minute, am I guessing which one of your cousins, which building, or which Scientologist? Umm, I am guessing your cousin Sarah in the Chelsea Hotel with the frozen remains of L Ron Hubbard. That feels like a game of Clue. Do I win?

Get better soon, sweetie! You are too healthy and strong to be knocked off my West Nile.

phlegmfatale said...

barbara - You're guessing which Scientologist. And Chelsea Hotel is in New Yawk, right? West coast, sweetie. I'll bet Will can guess this one. I love that you guessed the frozen remains of L. Ron Hubbard, because he probably IS cryogenically preserved somewhere out there - kooky!
Thanks, it's good just to feel better. The night before I barely slept, so last night's 8 hours did me a world of good.

Take care of yourself kiddo. As fhb said, lottsa fluids and vitamin C. Ain't sure about the narcotics. I do know Scotch is good for ya.

phlegmfatale said...

myron - thanks - Fluids, yeah. You know, it's funny - I've heard of people drinking a hot toddy when they're sick, but I've never actually tried it. I sort of imagine the effects of alcohol coupled with the woozy illness and the bastard-behind-the-eyes headache would make for pure misery, but you recommend it? I'll look up hot toddy recipes and maybe try it next time.
Oh, I do have some rum here I bought for a cake I was going to make for my Aunt Judy. hmm.

phlegmfatale said...

Oh, and I have comment moderation on, so it doesn't post immediately.

Dick said...

Feel better soon kiddo. That flu stuff sucks, big time.

Kelly said...

I hope you feel better. You need chicken soup.

I have no idea. My guess would be John Travolta? He's the only scientologist besides Kooky Cruise that I know.

FHB said...

Yea, but he lives in some place where he can fly his plane in and out. I'm thinkin maybe P-ditty? Is he a scientologist? I don't keep track of these things.

nongirlfriend said...

Sorry you are sick, hon. It's not West Nile. Surely not!

And I don't watch the news because I get too depressed afterwards, so thanks for the heads-up.

Hope you feel better soon.

P.S. Confession helps the soul. Go confess on my Confession Thursday post!

West NIle? really? you should go check that out....
I missed that Project Runway ... the tv is taken over with matt playing xbox live ;)

Anonymous said...

I am the weiner.

You left out the D, sugar.

phlegmfatale said...

dick - thanks. I knew my number was up - I haven't been really sick in years, it seems.

kelly - oh, you know this one, alright, and he's not a Cruise or a Travolta or a Lohan.

fathairybastard - not p diddy - you are all guessing way too upmarket.

Here's a hint. He had a very prominent tattoo when tattoos weren't cool.

nongirlfriend - aw thanks. I don't blame you - the news is unwatchable anymore. OK - I'll check out yer blog, babe!

kim - I'm sorta joking - I think I'm too healthy to succumb to something like that. It's just my drama queen pity-party of one that kicks in when I'm sick. *L*
Don't you have more than one television? Sacrilege!

shpprgrl said...

Feel better soon!

Kelly said...

Charles Manson? Oh wait...that can't be right.

I honestly have no clue.

But I have to add as a side note, I was very happy to see that prick Keith kicked off PR. Now, if only they'd get rid of that crazy Angela, my watching experience would improve greatly.

phlegmfatale said...

nein - we always knew you were a weiner, neiner. What D?

shpprgrl - thanks - I'm much better tonight & looking forward to an early morning walk with my bitch

Yes, I have a cousin in prison with Charles Manson
I'm awed by your superior knowledge, kelly - you brilliant thing, you!

Yeah, speaking of bitches, Keith was brilliant at self-promotion and he was really riding that wave. Did you believe him when he said he hadn't cheated or benefitted in any way from having those pattern-making books with him? I don't. Looks like the neck-tattoo guy and Angela are going to have a show-down next week. I saw a commercial where Laura was bawling out tattoo-neck guy. That should be plenty juicy. This is the best show ever. They must have slipped something very addictive in my froot loops, cause I'm totally buying it.

Kelly said...

You have got to be kidding me. I threw that out there almost as a joke. I can't believe I won! I'll collect my wonderful prize in about a month or two, but make the kisses not so sloppy ok?

I don't believe for one second that Keith didn't use those books. He'd have to be an idiot to bring them and not use them. He knew he was breaking the rules. Asshole. The thing that really pissed me off was the way he guilt-tripped Kayne for turning him in. Calling himself a scapegoat. What an ass.

phlegmfatale said...

kelly - dick told me he'd give you the kisses this afternoon, and I'll bet he will. :)

Me neither - Keith HAD to be totally cheating, else why risk getting his ass booted. The fact that he did that was just a measure of his arrogance. Oh, and I'm sure NO ONE bought the guilt trip thing- it was so nakedly apparent that he just wanted to foist blame off onto ANYONE else. Jerk.
Sad thing was, his clothes were impeccably done - he obviously DID have some skill with fabric, and I do believe he would have gone to the last round. I also loved the way he gave Angela shit (I'm sure only behind her back). The skittles thing was priceless, and then he hauled off and genuinely laughed - I started to like him at that moment. It's a pity, but rules is rules, and if he'd had the opportunity to rat out a cheater to the producers, he wouldn't have gone for a consult with his competitors.

BTW - wtf was Robert thinking with that dowdy anorak-creation last week? I couldn't believe he was so off the mark. Oh, and I can't believe they didn't send Bradley home for those pants. Knew Bonnie was going home - they seem to be sending the mild-mannered home, first. I think Bradley will be next to go.
