Sick Days in the land of Yestertime

I’m feeling much better today, and the proof is that I’ve gotten off the couch more than four times already, and it’s only 1:30. Stellar.

At first I thought I would have squat to blog about today because yesterday consisted mostly of long intervals of the back of my eyelids. But then I remembered that even on normal days I write posts about plucking my eyebrows, so come on, material is bound to be lurking around somewhere in my Sick Day.

And so it was. To wit: I watched not one, not two, but THREE episodes of Crowned, the reality show where mother daughter teams compete in a made up pageant to win – well, I don’t know what they win. A crown? A sash? It doesn’t matter, because that show is HILARIOUS. They could not have picked bitchier daughters or mousier moms. And they have things like “swimsuit clinics” and challenges where they have to design and pick their best head shot. Stuff like that. It is reality television GOLD, people. Favorite moment so far: when the “Goal Driven Gals” team is desashed because the judges feel as though their performance in their pageant video is not genuine enough. Which made me think they forgot which show they were judging, because there’s not a whole lot of genuine going on up in there.

Also stand out yesterday: the afternoon activity Keeping Bug Occupied Whilst Mommy Layeth on Her Ass. Bug now knows how to play the game “I Spy” (and when I say “knows how” it is in the loosest sense of the word, as on his turn he would just say, “I spy a CD!” and point at it) and also now knows how to fold socks. Not to toot my own horn, but come on, I made folding laundry a fun activity. And if you come over to my house, I will make it a fun activity for you, too.

Other than that, I mostly spent the day having weird trippy dreams about me and Morgan Freeman on some long journey trying to escape the law while trudging through fields and swimming across murky ponds. Kind of like the Shawshank Redemption with a little Fugitive mixed in. I was kind of bummed I woke up before the ending.

All in all, not a terrible day. Kind of fun, in a quirky way.

Minus the feeling like crap part.
