Can I Get That With a Side of Nyquil?
Like everyone else right now, I am sick. Yeah, I know, I should just suck it up and deal. Between that and the close of my show (which was asked to be part of Best of the Fringe, thank you very much. Of course, we're not available to do it as a lot of us -- including me -- are not available for the dates, but it's still fucking cool, right?), I have had no time to kick it with the computer.
This has put a cramp in my dining style. Because, really, what do you do when you have to blow your nose a thousand times during a meal? Other than gross the other patrons out, I mean. My appetite has been suspiciously absent as well. This is great if you consider the 2.5 pounds I've lost in the past 4 days, but not so good when you're trying to slut about the town.
I did manage to hit A16 on Friday after my show. It had been awhile since we'd been, and I forgot how fucking good it is. I mean it's just unreal how great that place is. And we had Raymond as a waiter, and, really, everybody loves Raymond. He rocks my world. So did the pork terrine special with chanterelles.
We also went to a birthday shindig at Medjool. First impression is really good food and a really crappy bar (you can't make a bloody mary because you don't have bloody mary mix? What kind of bullshit is that? Buy some freakin' tomato juice, jerkwad).
Between my sniffles, I made a kickass German Chocolate Cake for the aforementioned friend's birthday. Whenever I make it, I realize how very few of the ingredients have any nutitional value. But good God that bitch is moist. And fluffy enough to sleep on.
I've also managed to sit on my ass quite a bit while spending quality time with my couch. I've used this time to reconnect with my Martha, whose new show is rocking my world. I love her. A lot. And I really think prison is the best thing that ever happened to her.
At any rate, I have a bunch of posts burning a hole in my keyboard but I can't commit to them at the moment as I'm still a bit on the ill side. I've gone through more tissues this week than a 14 year old boy.
I'll have more love for you soon.
