Blah blah blah

Just checking in to reassure anyone who was concerned that I haven't forgotten how to type, fallen into a coma, lost power or anything of that nature. I'm just having a sort of humdrum week, and can't seem to get my thoughts corralled into anything approaching a coherent blog post. ("But that's never stopped you before!" Shut up!)

You'd think that New Guy being back in town after a (relatively) long absence might mean that I've been seeing a lot of him, but you'd be wrong. He hasn't been feeling well (toothache and sinus headache), and...well, let's just say that I hate to make generalizations, but if I were to make a generalization, I would say that he handles illness like a MAN. If you know what I mean. And I'm sure you do. Hopefully he will feel better soon. Both because it does suck not to feel well, and because I have needs, too. One of which is to actually spend time with the guy I'm dating. Oh, well.

We did spend some quality time together last weekend, including a trip to Tulsa's new Chipotle (!), and a viewing of "Sweeney Todd" the movie, which we both loved. Seriously, seeing Johnny Depp and Alan Rickman, two of my pretend boyfriends, sitting together singing music from my favorite Stephen Sondheim (one of my pretend BFFs) musical...heaven!

Yesterday I gave New Guy the number of a good dentist and my humidifier, complete with Vicks VapoSteam. Let's hope for the best.

Glad you're okay. As someone who has been suffering with a cold/sinus thing for longer than I want to tell you, I feel for New Guy. Hope he's better soon so he can hang out with you more and not be whiny.

Why do I feel like just reading this post is tempting fate to get me sick? But if I do... ahhh, the Vick's and humidifier. Love.

If he really handled it like a man, he would want you there to hear him whine and bring him things.

I saw Sweeney Todd as a musical. I really didn't enjoy it...I liked the first half, but then it just got to be a little too much for my liking. Maybe I'll check out the movie when the DVD comes out.

Men! They are babies. Tell New Guy to "Walk it off" and do something blogworthy!

(also, glad you're not dead)

Thank goodness I don't have to call to police to find you, because I have absolutely no idea what your full name is or where you live. I could just see the conversation, "Liz, you know, Liz from the INTERNET. Please find her. She is the one who was recently without power, somewhere in one of those states where people lost power. Yes, I'll hold."

I *heart* Vicks VapoSteam. Best wishes on a quick recovery for New Guy. Being sick DOES suck.

i suggest a netti pot for the sicko. this should help with some relief because liz needs some time with her man.

Happy to read you're ok! Not so much about New Guy's bug - bummer!

Hope all gets better real soon!

What is with the dudes and sickness.
My Mr. has been on-and-off whiny with illnesses for the last few weeks. I get really sick for a few days and I'm still cooking dinner!

They're weak, I tells ya! Weak!

Stefanie said...

Noelle's comment cracked me up. For the record, Internets, I actually DO know Liz's full name and address! So I'll take the responsibility of being the one to track her down if she's really AWOL. Sound good? :-)

I have no idea why men are such babies when they're sick, but it makes me glad to be single sometimes.

sauntering, I feel for him, too. But he needs to shut up and deal. Hee.

npw, I hope fate resisted the temptation to make you prove your love for Vick's. ;)

3c, oh, there's plenty of whining, but then he just wants to be left alone. Sigh.

lsass, I'd like to tel him that, believe me. :)

noelle, hee! You could always add, "She has lots of cats." That should narrow it right down.

spark, thanks for the good wishes!

gorillabuns, I've looked at those netti pots, but I've never known anyone who's tried them. They're good?

stinky, hopefully all will be well soon.

whiskey, they are! You are correct!

stef, I feel better knowing you're on the job!
