Can't sleep


Not much into sleeping meds although I have taken them. Now with this cold front coming though I've been a bit sick and sleeping all over again throughout the day and up at night.

Sucks.

Weather extremes build superior character. Men and women that can survive the Midwest with 100s and matching humidity in the summer and -20 actual in the winter with no moisture in the air have the only real balls and ovaries in this country.

I got shot for flu yesterday just in case.

Sorry you are sick. I used to get something, especially after international flights, within two days of landing. I was never of the mindset to go into work and make everybody else sick to win a perfect work attendance award. Granted the white collar part of me is from the computer industry so I had ways early on of working from home. OMG do I miss the dial-up days and my cool, for the time, luggable.

There is a cure for how you are feeling my staff found me. Thai Tom Yum (sp?) soup with extra lime and fish paste. If you're really clogged up, order it with some extra chili. Get it with fresh water prawns if availed or at least decent sized shrimp if not.

The lemongrass smell and thai basil leaves will reach you first no matter how sick you feel. First sip of the broth, a magical blend of Vitamin C and fish protein will start you on the path of recovery. With the pepper, you will not even notice it is a seafood soup. I promise.

People elsewhere do not understand.

I have favorite recipes for snow. I don't have a wood burning fireplace in my current place but have had before. I am looking around but since I cannot do so much work anymore, and all contractors I like would make my life miserable just laughing at me. "You thought you helping put our kids through school would help you with this?"

Not ever good at picking up chicks, and certainly not into it all at my age now? A fireplace extended my odds. And of course there was His Royal Orangeness.

"Want to come over, sit by the fire, cuddle or whatever?"

"You could pet and make my giant orange cat purrrrrrrrr?"

It worked better than,

"Baby, drink my bath water and I will make your teeth sweat!"

Drink Steve's fish soup and slather Vicks vaporub on your feet. Cover with socks and let it soak at least for a few hours or overnight.

Good as new in the morning.

Steve:

I've told our inhouse young single stud before...the way to pick up chicks is to hang out in the park with a puppy or toddler. Total babe magnet. He snorted at me and remains single to this day.

Yesterday at the dog food store, there was a big burly tough looking dude trying coats on his chihuahua. I thought they were an odd match, but he was surrounded by female customers.

Well then you can spank my bottom, feed me formula and call me a big baby cause I'm not built for anything below 60f. I will whine all the way to my grave.

I do have tilapia fillets in the freezer...

Trust me..put it on the soles of your feet. A little around the nose if it gives you comfort.

The schools around here don't call indoor or short recess until it hits minus 22c. Thats about -10f.

I still make my kids walk to school in those temps.

10- F. !?1
In my day - we had to go up the side of a mountain - using our spikes
and ice-axes -
Fending off the "Abominable", "Snow persons" - those things sure can throw
snowballs!
That was going to school!!
The climb, was a paltry 20,000 feet - "Big Deal"!

The journey back was about 25,000 feet - Whew!
(Remember - it's aerobic!)
We usually, invited the "Snow people" back for hot-cocoa, marsh-mellows,
"Smores" (SP?)
We sat around a "roaring" fire and complained about "Mother Nature"
turning down the temp. on the mountains -
Isn't 120 degrees, minus, F. cold enough!?!
Jeesh!!
