And my head is filled with snot! (No, you would not be wrong in thinking that I am klass-ay.)
Ok, so I've been Sicky McGee for the last week and I'm about tired of it. But, that's not what this is about. It's about how awesome my friends are. I didn't go to work on Thursday or Friday and I was stressing HARD, because Thursday was the Employee Appreciation luncheon and I felt *awful* for leaving Dana alone to handle it all. She took it amazingly well. Way better than I would have, I'm sure. In addition to being super nice to me about ditching her, she sent a care package home to me. My lovely friend Angel-ica called me around 3:00 and asked if she could stop by after work to drop off something. I said sure, because I was half asleep when she called and honestly, I would have agreed to
a sack of angry badgers almost anything just to go back to dreamland where my throat & lungs weren't on fire.
She showed up with a GIANT care package from Dana of cheesy potatoes, chicken, a caramel apple, 3 cookies and a card. Ang also brought me veg-e-table soup & french fries from my favorite fast food place, AND she brought me a cd she made with the songs from Glee! It's so awesome to listen to Finn & Rachel sing their little hearts out to "Don't Stop Believing" and "No Air" and Mr. Shu and the Acafellas singing "Poison" (Never trust a big butt and a smile...) As crappy as I've felt, I can't help but smile when I listen to it. Also, the kid who plays Finn is 27 and therefore not a kid kid, so it's totally acceptable for me to have dirty, nasty, whorish thoughts about him....I'm just sayin'.
Friday, my neighbor Heather sent me a text asking if I was ok. A few hours later she sent me another text telling me to check my door. She hung a bag on my doorknob with Puffs w/ Lotion, Nyquil, Dayquil and Hall's cherry cough drops. Aww, how sweet! Then, about an hour after that my doorbell rang. My boss sent me flowers to thank me for working on Employee Appreciation Week. Nice, right? Oh and so, remember how I said that only 11 employees would appreciate our efforts? Well, I was wrong. I got FOURTEEN emails saying thanks! Ha. Suck it...um, self! And I would have been sad and sick if it weren't for my lovely (and weird) Pajiba/Facebook friends who kept me company while I was home and made me laugh. Thanks, kids!
And this is completely not related to anything above, but it makes me enormously happy - my Denver Broncos are 6 and 0!!
Ok, sorry, back to other non-sports stuff. What do you kids have going on? Fun stuff? Happy stuff? Are you planning any Halloweeny stuff? I hope you're all well and have a happy No Whining Wednesday!
