Nose still running like a faucet.
Throat still sore.
Naturally I have work to do, but I just took a nap. I think I feel worse than before. No fever though.
1) This morning I flipped on Animal Planet for just a second. They were covering a dog show. This woman was being interviewed and says, "Grooming and being with your dog is just like making love." I switched off the TV.
2) Walking along Ponce (Atlanta's Ponce de Leon Ave.) I got fixated on The Majestic, a greasy spoon in business since 1929. There's a big neon sign running around the corner of the building and part of it says "Food That Pleases." I kept on walking and passed a Presbyterian church, with a banner out front proclaiming "Food That Sustains." Just a few blocks later I passed Java Jive, which has a 1950s style mural on the side with a man drinking coffee -- and above it reads "The Cup That Pleases." I am now thinking that the Clairmont Lounge, which is in the same area, should do up a sign that says "Sleaze That Pleases."
Yet ANOTHER Saturday where I've spent most of the afternoon sleeping. Granted, I'm sick, but ugh, I have stuff to do! Went out in the morning to Alon's, then took a walk down Ponce to run an errand, then came home. And went to sleep on the couch. Gah. Woke up a while later, cold driving me crazy, and then took Benadryl and a cough drop. Fell asleep on the couch, with the cough drop stuck to the top of my mouth :( I felt fine when I got up 15 minutes ago, but now that I'm vertical, my nose is going again. Luckie just got up off the bed and is here wondering what's next. Will I get back in bed? Probably not.
