Feel better Sarah!

Three things that make me feel better when I'm sick:

1. Otter Pops
2. Nyquil...ah...the sweet sleepy spell
3. Nick Drake--his music always relaxes me

What are Otter Pops? I love them already, just from the name.

Otter Pops are basically sugar, water, food dye, and artificial flavoring all wrapped in a clear plastic tube, and frozen. I think they may have been popular in the 70s and 80s--they remind me of summer camp :) Urban Dictionary described them as: "crack on a summer day, only legal."

sarah, you must be feeling a teeny bit better to log on and share your sick-day shenanigans with us. thanks for the nice visual of your hairdo. i am picturing cindy or kate from the B-52's after a really rockin' party and hard sleep.

my mom always got me some ginger ale, fig newtons and a new book or magazine when i was a sick kid. i still wish for that when i'm sick! nothing heals like quality couch time. and yeah, the magic of chicken soup.

air hugs to sick bay patient.

Cook's Illustrated is trash? How can you even read it when you're barfy?

#10 is dead on. I left this comment on another friend's page: "You know you're a mom when surgery = vacation." Even then, it's no guarantee you'll get any real rest. It's all, "I might as well get up instead of having to sit here and listen to the chaos."

1. Not going to work

2. Lying on the couch and watching 3 movies in a row is acceptable

3. Ordering delivery is expected

4. Procrastination is allowed

5. Staying in bed until 5pm is also allowed

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
