Go And Boil Your Bottoms, You Sons Of A Silly Person

by Rainier on Feb. 1, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Well, that was funny. We stayed inside for most of the weekend, having a ball and watching TV shows. We stepped out on Sunday to grab some groceries, and I picked up a bug somewhere. My head weighs a ton, yet it feels floaty, and I'm sweating like a pig. Luckily, I felt it coming, bundled up right away and my usual remedy is to nap and hopefully sweat it out. I know, it sounds pretty grody, but it works (and I feel a teeny bit better already).

Before I got hit by the bug, we watched House, Kitchen Nightmares, Psych and started watching Monsters vs. Aliens but then I dozed off as planned, so we'll pick it up again tomorrow.
