I Hate Everybody

Why is it that whenever I decide to go on a diet the world conspires against me?

After fighting it for two days a full-blown head cold is here. I woke up this morning feeling a bit like week-old chewing gum stuck to the bottom of a shoe.

I have a sinus headache that currently feels like someone is driving a spoon through my frontal lobe and all I want is some Aleve Cold & Sinus - the only over-the-counter drug I have found that actually knocks out said headaches.

I go to Walgreens before work. Pick up a box of Kleenex. Go to the cold medicine aisle only to find those stupid little cards telling me that if I want my Aleve Cold & Sinus I need to ask at the pharmacy and sign my life away. Being only 7:30AM in the morning, the pharmacy is not open.

No drugs for Wendy.

If you are a meth addict and happen to be reading my blog - I hope they shrivel up and fall off.

Oh, and the Yankees clinched a playoff spot.

I hate everybody.

Oh that really stinks, Wendy. I hope you feel better soon!

(((Wendy))) I just fought the evil head cold (for a week and a half!) and so totally feel your pain. I like Tylenol Cold and Head Congestion, day or nighttime. In my area, we can get those and Sudafed non-drying sinus something-or-other (blue tablets...I so recommend them) without going through the pharmacy - and I daresay I am in the heart of meth country- so I think those Walgreens people are just mean!

Feel better soon!

While I would like to have the luxury of commiserating with you about your head cold I'm ONLY thinking of myself when I say this..."Snap out of it!" You have to be better before the meet up on Saturday. Yeah, call me a selfish bitch but there it is.

Also, I'm still not over my snit about LOVER UNBOUND.

Damn Yankees.

C2: I live in California. I mean, wouldn't you think most of our meth comes up from Mexico? Where I used to work in Michigan was Meth Central. The economy going in the tank there hasn't helped matters either....

Rosie: I'm working on it. Actually came home from work early today - we'll see if I go in the office tomorrow. Right now I'm working on feeling sorry for myself.

Aw, SL, how's the BF with TLC? Any chance you'll get some spoiling tonight. I'm all for you staying home sick tomorrow. Again, thinking of ONLY me, because it ups the chances of you making it Saturday. Seriously, take care of yourself.

I'm sorry you're sick Wendy. HUGS Also, if you don't have an appetite, this might actually help with the diet. LOL

I feel your pain - my moldy classroom is making me sick again. I like Tylenol Sinus - that really helps me. :)

Hope you feel better Wendy!

You'd think California would have more relaxed attitudes about drugs... ;-) I don't know if the meth there would come from Mexico or Nevada. Who knows what people in the middle the Nevada desert might be brewing up?
