Packing, coughing and sleeping

I'm sick. I have a stupid cold and we need to pack up the entire kitchen and move it. How the hell do you pack a temporary kitchen, pack away a kitchen for 3 months from now, and purge a ton of crap? You watch your girlfriend do it. And lay on the couch and watch 4 hours of Real World Denver. Pitiful.

Last night we watched a Bollywood movie and I swear it was 4 hours long (actually it was 224 minutes). At least. It was great, though. Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India is a classic Bollywood musical with great dance and music. But what really made it weird to watch was one of the lead acresses, the british woman, is the actress who plays Helena Peabody from The L Word. All I could see was a lesbian singing about being in love with the Indian guy. Blame it on the fever.

I'm going to drug up and actually be helpful today. Will we make it out to a party tonight? Knowing our track record for actually attending any New Years parties, no. But unless this cough calms down, I don't think anyone wants me hacking all over them.

Happy last day of the year ya'll.

If not, I'll be thinking of you all as the clock strikes twelve for a prosperous New Year, and finished kitchens too!

So sorry you're sick, Lelo!!! Not fair! the germ deities are not nice to you!

And you're so considerate not to want to cough on other people. They will miss your presence at the party, but I'm sure they'll be happy you didn't present them with presents of germs ;)

Would love to be there and make chicken soup while packing your kitchen. Hugs, Mom aka "The Packing Mama" Just ask your brother!

Hope you're feeling better!

I loved Lagaan; it is a *great* movie, although I admit to being bored during some of the cricket matches.
