Very Sick but Getting Better; More Posts Later Today

By
To all my friends and readers, I have been extremely sick the last five days–a combination flu, cold, and strep throat, the likes of which I cannot remember having so bad. That’s why I haven’t posted anything new since Friday. No voice for four days, even with no talking–and I like to talk. I think I’ve drunk at least half of my extensive hot tea collection to not much avail. Thank G-d, the voice is now back about 97%, throat still on fire.
But I’m getting better, and will post a few things later today, including my lists for 2005 and 2006. Thanks for your patience.

Get well soon, Debbie.

Get well very soon.
Getting the common cold/strep/languageitis (it’s a joke) is a bitch, however, I make it a priority to get an annual flu shot. I never believed in flu shots until about 4 years ago after the flu I got the year before knocked me for a loop.
In the meantime, eat some homemade chicken soup…my mother always told me it was Jewish penicillin.

For a minute there I was scared you took Eminimen’s Revenge’s “herbal” ingredient…but you said you are getting better and you sound sane, so you must not have after all.
Wishing you a speedy recovery and Happy New Year!

Trust me on this:
1 1/2 or 2 shots rum (the darker the better)
6 oz hot water
2 tsp BROWN sugar
sprinkle of cinnamon
Stir and drink
This old Cape Breton remedy (and who knows from where else) works great. Clears up sinuses, makes you feel great. (Even if you don’t get better, you care less). It’s also not a bad drink even when you’re not sick.
Take care

I may be an atheist, but you need not worry about censoring yourself by saying thank G-d. If you want to say God, that’s cool. I just don’t like the god who is killing Ariel Sharon because he’s dividing up Israel.
