U B Illin' - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
U B Illin'
I don't know why, but that phrase amuses me. I even kinda like the song. "Kinda" as in: probably not really, and I haven't heard it in years, but I in my imagination it's become nifty.

So yeah, I'm still sick. I'm feeling better, but not great yet. I've made it to work every day since monday though (despite my Very Late Arrival on wednesday), so that's a sign I'm healing. Albeit slowly.

When my boss heard me speaking this morning he asked me, "You're still sick??" I still have that thick, raspy, "something's weird in my sinuses" sound to my voice. But it's only been... (counts on fingers) ...six days, so I think that's fairly normal. Isn't it? Maybe he's just impatient. Not that I'd mind if I were better already, but this does seem like the standard timeline.

I'm glad it's friday. Seems like almost everyone on my friends list is going out of town this weekend. Not me: I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend of lots resting, reacquainting myself with my cats, laundering my clothes, and paying my bills. And more resting. And hopefully shaking this darn cold!

Ahhh....hot soup and cheetos for lunch. Yum, and feels good on my throat. (Well, the soup does at any rate.) I have more to say, but I'll probably have to wait until later to say it. Time to do some work.

Have a great weekend! Feel better and say hi to the cats for me.

Try some chips & salsa, too; that might make you feel better. *hug!*

Run DMC, King of Rock. Got that for Christmas last year (fleshing out my "old stuff" CDs).

It pretty much kicks ass, but not to listen to too often. It's interesting to hear what old school rap sounded like. Run DMC definitely wanted to be a rock'n'roll band. Where-as most rappers anymore don't have much rock'n'roll to what they're doing. Unless you count bands like Rage Against the Machine as rap--but they're really more of a descendant of Public Enemy than anyone else. "Fight the powers that be!"

I could burn you a copy of King of Rock, if you'd like. Or maybe a compilation of some of the better '80s rap. Run DMC, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys... and I really should get a copy of Paid in Full by Eric B and Rakim anyway, and this would give me a good excuse.

hmmm...a compilation of the better 80's rap could be fun. (: Certainly different from most of what I own!

from one sickie to another - feel better!

i'm allowing myself to indulge in one of my favorite comfort foods: noodles. probably won't eat that many, but they're the *only* thing that sounds appealing right now.

aww.... major suckage that you're sick instead of out enjoying your weekend. I hope the noodles help you feel better quickly! I've been eating lots of noodle soup this week. Try to get lots of sleep tonight; that usually helps.

Let's both feel better tomorrow! *hug*

Awww I'm sorry you've been sick, I hope you feel better soon!!
Enjoy your weekend off! I'm not doing anything this weekend either, well...except working. Sunday morning I have to be at Express at 6AM!! Hope I don't sleep right through my alarm!
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 16th, 2004 10:09 am (UTC) (Link)
6am?! Yikes, that's nasty. Hope you managed to wake up on time yesterday, and survive your day.

I had a pretty good weekend, and I'm finally starting to feel healthy(ish) again. Yay!

Do you work days at Express ever? I work just down the road from Sommerset...it'd be fun to visit and say hello some lunchtime or something.

Okay. Now you've made me want to make Mrs. Grass' Chicken Soup. For Breakfast.

At 5:00 P.M..

I just hope you're happy.

I love having quiet weekends where I can regenerate and just...cleanse myself of life, I guess ::lol::

And yeah. That's when I do my budgeting, LJ updating, and assorted other stuff :)
