I confess: I have had a cold since Tuesday/Wednesday, after catching it from my lovely husband (not his fault, I know!) but STILL does he have to be so show off-y with his superior immune system by beating the cold in three days flat while I am still sputtering and hacking and wheezing away? Hmph!
I confess: Hence, as per the above, there have been no workouts this week. Zilch. I'm not one of those people who is going to knock myself out trying to work up a sweat when I ALREADY HAVE A FEVER!
In my weakened state I can barely lift the remote - oh but I did, I mainlined The Veronica Mars Movie (good, esp. for fans of the show), TWD s. 6, a Greta Gerwig movie (Lola Versus), which was not very good but had Debra Winger and Bill Pullman playing her parents which made me feel a hundred. I mean, I guess they are technically old enough to be parents to a 30 year old, but it just seemed kinda weird. Plus they were totally wasted, which also made me sad, because I don't know... (I am also prone to the minor weeps when I have a cold I found this week, does this happen to anyone else?).
But I did enjoy watching movies in the afternoon which normally I wouldn't do. Self-Care is something that comes more naturally (to some of us, not to *cough* some men! ;-0) when we are sick, and there is something soothing and almost therapeutic about letting your body tell you what it can deal with and listening for once and not feeling guilty for not doing whatever it is we think we should be doing. So, one small perk of the being sick thing.
I confess: (SPOILER-ish if you haven't seen latest series of The Walking Dead). If they kill Daryl, I'm O-U-T* - obviously it could be anyone but people are talking about it like it could EVEN happen and I'm all...
I'm still processing this season, it had a lot of weird twists and turns and some characters progressed well, while others seemed to sort of regress, which I don't know, in a zombie apocalypse anything goes I guess. I no longer loathe Carl though, so that's a turnaround for the books. You win Walking Dead for not making your teenagers too bratty, unlike most shows! Although I do think you missed a trick not casting Garett Dillahunt as Negan. I'm sure Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be good, but no one does crazy psychopaths like Mr. D.
* or as my Mom calls him affectionately, "Cross-bow" Not long after she started watching it, which I got her hooked on while she was visiting me, she said in deadly serious-ness "If they kill Cross-bow I'm out!" ;-0 , which I have to say I'm pretty sure the majority of the fandom would concur!
