Sicko=Me

I looked over at Jeremy last night and asked him to gently smother me with my pillow after I finally fell asleep. I told him that I would probably fight him, it's human nature, but in the end, it would be better if he put me out of my misery. You see, since Saturday, I've been suffering from the flu.

Chills? I've got 'em. Fever? Yep. Night sweats? Oh, yeah. Night terrors, screaming and kicking in my sleep? Well, actually, that's Jeremy, but that's also for another post.

Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning and still was alive. Oh, I don't doubt that at some point Jeremy will eventually try to "off" me sometime in the night, because, believe me, I totally deserve it. So, for now, I'm grateful that my dear husband spared my life. I'm also so happy that before he left for work he picked up some pudding packs to help soothe my raw throat. I should have checked to make sure he didn't poison them somehow though. No matter, they were delicious.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and continue to have a wonderful week. I'll be back when I've got my strength back and I'm off the cough syrup. Trust me, you don't want me stopping by your sites when I'm under the influence of NyQuil. Last time I did that I professed my love for Corey Haim. Corey Haim! The more messed up of The Two Coreys. What's wrong with me? More importantly, what's right with Corey Haim?

First!

Now ... I hope you feel better soon. I feel so ... stalkerless.

Captain Dumbass said...

GAH! 3rd

Sprite's Keeper said...

I always thought Corey Feldman was the more effed up of the two!
Hope you feel better, sweetie!

Captain Dumbass said...

Ok, now I've read your post. You should go back to bed, Patient Zero. Do you guys have NeoCitron down there? Maybe mix your cough syrup with some red bull and give it a good shake for faster results.

I know, I should have gone into medicine.

Khadra said...

Im right there with you.
I tried rum last night. Cross that off your list of potential remedies. It did nothing for me.

Jamie said...

Hope you feel better soon -

Corey Haim? What is right about him ? That is an excellant question. He was great in Lucas. Dorky but appeared clean and sober.

Momma Trish said...

Feel better, 'kay?

I have always loved Corey Feldman. Haim? Not so much. Perhaps you were just confused by the NyQuil.

goodfather said...

Sorry you're sick! I hope you feel better, like, now. Being sick is no fun at all. :(

Heinous said...

Get better. I'll have a shot of Nyquil in your honor.

HeatherPride said...

Oh no!!! So sorry you're a sicko. I mean, I always had my suspicions but this just proves it!

Kidding aside, I hope you feel better soon! Deemarie is sick too, so maybe you guys can go find a comfy couch and a big tv and veg together!

Rebekah said...

a) pudding and Nyquil? AWESOME!

b) Awww...Corey Haim? I think Nyquil makes you the champion of the underdog...a cuddly friend to the dorky sidekick! Awww, Nyquil!

c) best wishes with the pillow death squad, the flu, and maybe this time revealing your secret love for Cousin Larry from Perfect Strangers?

Tina said...

I really hope you feel better soon because your choice of men when you are addled with fever and cough medicine just, well, sucks.

Shanna said...

Hey, feel better!

Miss Grace said...

Yuck. Feel better.

Seriously Mama said...

I've always been more of a Sean Astin girl. I sang my love of all things Mikey Walsh and Goonies long before the Corey's came in to my life. I hope you feel better soon and if not, I know a guy who knows a guy who nows a guy who can probably help Jeremy out a bit for the right price...;-)

Wicked Step Mom said...

Feel better soon! And enjoy the pudding packs!

::sighs:: I miss pudding packs....

ChurchPunkMom said...

now, grasshoppah... one should never feign illness to avoid the pursuit of fitness..

getting started on your HASAY excuse to make it more believable, hm???

get rest dear, the pavement awaits the pounding of your feet..

ali said...

Feel better soon! Theraflu and ibuprofen. A wonderful combination. Much like Haim and Feldman.

GreenJello said...

Feel better soon! Sounds like you have the Utah Crud. We're waging battle against it south of you.

Robin said...

Say it with me: If loving Corey Haim is wrong, I don't want to be right.
Oh yeah, I watched the fabulous mess that was The Two Coreys.
Feel better. :)

Colepack said...

Get beeter soon but in the meantime, do some stalking. Comments all doped up on meds are a riot.

Mama Dawg said...

Dude, did you SEE him in "License to Drive"?

Yeah, me neither.

Glad you're alive. I was worried that one of my bloggy-land stalkers found you and disposed of your dead corpse somewhere along Route 66. That would be real bad.

Krystal said...

Oooh Jenbo - poor sicky poo - I hope you feel better soon!! I would totally follow pharmacist Captain Dumbass's suggestion - it might work!

beth said...

There goes half my audience! Oh well, hope you feel better. Ever tried laying on the side of the bed with your head touching the floor while giving yourself a shot of tequilla? Here in Arizona families swear by it.

PAPATV said...

The one good thing about being sick is your jealous co-workers.

You know they're totally at work talking smack "I know she's not sick, she's faking it" blah, blah, blah

watercooler gossip. blah...

Mc Allen said...

aww, well its good that Jer wasn't willing to risk being the misses to a guy doing life for murder just to help you avoid fever, chills and occasional vomiting... That shows real character, which is more thsn I can say for your 'Cory' ... I'll swing by later with some soup and a turkey sandwhich!! Glad your back among the living. LA

Sal said...

Pudding packs rock! Did you eat all of them in one sitting. I would suggest not, if you haven't done so already. Just a word from experience, otherwise the toilet might be in your near future.

Cape Cod Gal said...

Nothing wrong with Corey. Both of them were FINE! Now...Ewwww!

Cat said...

Feel better soon!

Jenni said...

Feel better Steenky Sicko.

And Cory Haim never got it right. He was passable when paired with Feldman. But who wants to be paired with Feldman?

Sammanthia said...

Feel better soon!

Jennifer said...

I'll leave out the "you shoulda got a flu shot" (No, it doesn't give you the flu, you doubting Thomas's!) and just wish you well soon.
Or as Demetri Martin says "Get Well, NOW!"

Carolyn...Online said...

There are just so many things wrong with both Cory's that it defies description.

Now go back to bed young lady.

Ms. PH said...

Oh, feel better. I don't feel right stalking a sick person.

Well, I don't feel right stalking a physically sick person. I feel OK about stalking a mentally sick person. I do it all the time.

Casey said...

Oh no, I hope you feel better. Did you try that sneaky vapo-rub trick DeeMarie used? I haven't had the flu in awhile and I'm afraid to keep reading for fear I'll catch it from you. Feel better.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Corey Haim was HOTT back in the Lost Boys days...

Hey! Are you sure you don't have tuberculosis? WebMD says that is what I've got and we *have* been sharing some of the same web space...

Kelly said...

Everyone I know is getting sick! At home: Mom, Dad, Baby T. At work: faux-boyfriend Ryan. In the blogg-o-sphere: YOU! What's going on with this epidemic?! It's infecting every aspect of my life... just to get at me? Oh, I hope not. I don't want to fall in love with Corey Haim! (Even though I favored him in the Corey's better days--No, I wasn't alive... a girl can dream, right?!)

Get well soon Jen-Bo!!
XO XO

for a different kind of girl said...

I hope you are feeling better soon. I had that bug last fall. It's quite possible that I am actually dead now and am coming to you as a zombie.

I'm glad you're a Corey Haim girl, too, even if it's in a whacked out way, because seriously, Feldman is a freak.

Tuesday Girl said...

Have a cup of tea.
Better yet, I am off to make myself a cup of tea.

jori-o said...

Hope you feel better soon. NyQuil, while it usually does the trick, is just plain nasty!

Laufa said...

I hope you feel better soon, I was starting to miss you. I was about to e-mail stalk you.

robin said...

Hey Jen,
I nominated you for your billionth bloggy award. When you're feeling better, come by and pick it up!
:) Robin

Vodka Mom said...

I know you're sick, but that was damn funny. Perhaps you should be sick at least once a week.


(just kidding- as you know)

gingela5 said...

Hope you feel better! I wouldn't mind a NyQuil induced blog post! That would be great!

Kat said...

Hope you feel better soon. Nyquil should have a warning label on it just for me "Don't take in kitchen or you will wake up from coma like state on said kitchen floor."

Maggie May said...

a few points, my steenky friend!

1 garlic. garlic. in capsules, pressed into warm water, however. it kills bacteria, raises immune system, and is especially beneficial to lungs.

2 green tea

3 echinachea

feel better!

anymommy said...

Oh no! That sucks. My first visit since my move and I find you incapacitated. Feel better soon.

I am a huge fan of Nyquil. My annoying pharmacist husband insists the generic brand is the same. I tell him bringing home generic is grounds for divorce.

Wendy said...

I hope you feel better soon! I've only had the flu once, and actually had to keep going to work because I didn't have any employees at the time. It sucked. But this is supposed to be about you... I'm glad Jeremy didn't smother you last night! I mean think about it. Do you really want to die while you suck in dust mite shit and dead skin cells? Ew. Slip a few too many pills in my pudding any day!

Tracy Lynn said...

And THAT is why I get the flu shot every year. Hope you feel better before Jeremy tries to kill you again. I mean, now. Whoops.

April said...

awwwwwwwwwwww. sending healthy dust your way. feel better SOOOON!

Sherendipity said...

awwww schpoopy, I hope you feel better soon!

HarryJack's Mom said...

Awww, I hope you feel better soonest - big healthy hugs! I was missing you :-) Do you miss Pudding Pops? Those rocked! Friend, heal thyself.

Katie said...

The flu sucks. We are on Day 2 of the pukes at our house. So I feel your pain.

Get well soon!!

Jennifer said...

You poor thing! The flu sucks--I hope you feel better soon.

Corey Haim?? How much cough syrup did you guzzle??

TattooedMinivanMom said...

I would also like to reserve a spot in the top 10. You're sick feverish and pukey and people still swarm you! You must give good head.

blissfullycaffeinated said...

Pudding heals all. Believe that.

Jen (Sprite's Keeper) - Haim is definitely the more effed up of the two Corey's. Feldman actually seems to have a normal life. Why do I know that? No idea.

Feel better sister of my heart. I would hug you but I'm reading The Stand right now and very paranoid about germs.

xo

mrsbear said...

I used to love Corey Haim, I must have seen Lost Boys 8,000 times. What the hell happened to him? He's freaky deeky. Hope you feel better soon.

Lola said...

Oh, nooooo! I'm throwing salt over my shoulder and fake spitting on the floor right now thinking about your plight and warding it off since I'm leaving Friday for Florida.

I really hope you feel better soon, and I hope I have not been jinxed for stopping by.

monkey said...

ugh....we've got it too. well, not really the flu. more like a bastard second cousin that shows up at family functions with fruitcake. i don't even know what that last sentence means.
we just don't feel good.
and my baby has snot pouring out her like IT'S HER JOB.

Chris Wood said...

Get well you! (said in healing British accent)

DeeMarie said...

I'm sitting up today and calling it an accomplishment. Hope your back to your awesomesauce self in not time, Sister!!

kel said...

Aw.. I hope you feel better. And Nyquil is the shizz-nit! I love me some Nyquil.. better than booze.

I am also a drama queen when I get sick, so I feel for ya. I always worry that I caught bird flu or something.

Michele said...

I know you feel bad but if it gets you Nyquil with a pudding pack chaser I say milk it for all it's worth.

Get well soon!

shopgirl said...

Oh SB - I hope you feel better soon. And, can I just say - you are even funny when you're sick! I'm so jealous but glad I found your blog to stalk - you keep me laughing sister.

Now, get back to bed and feel better soon!!

Anndi said...

Just don't turn into a zombie. I did that once... and ended up posting about Grease II.

Feel better sweetness.

Leslie said...

You poor thing - hope you feel better! Make a hot toddie - whiskey, honey and lemon juice brought to a simmer and then sipped while wrapped in a blankie (you - not the hot toddie)

Anyway, I'm new to your blog and I saw your son in his Spideman costume and thought "how did my son get on this blog too?" Gheez - I need more sleep!

I'll be back to see how you liked the hot toddie.

anita doberman said...

Feel better!
Some hot hot tea with lots of lemon in it :)

The Stiletto Mom said...

Oh punkin....feel better. You are missed. If I was there, I'd for sure apply cold compresses before I tried to smother you. But that's just me, I'm a giver. Plus, I love you so your wish is my command.
