The Cure For Any Illness Is Hot Wings.


So...I forgot the Farmers Market Saturdays post - but I'm not going to do FM Sunday or even Monday. I'm going to reject the guilt and come back next Saturday to do it right. Sometimes you just have to move on.

Speaking of which, it's been a rough few weeks battling a cold that I mockingly stated that I would breeze through because of my ultra-great immune system. Um...no. No breezing through for me. It wasn't even one of those "I was so sick I lost 8 lbs in one week" colds. I couldn't even get lucky that way. Oh well. I'm feeling better and am ready to start the week. Mostly.

Some things that do help, in case you are one of the unlucky few that are dealing with a Spring cold right now (because the weather is ridiculously cold when it should be almost Summer:)

*Laughter. I saw "Date Night" with Steve Carrell and Tina Fey. Ridiculous - but funny. I am in love with Steve Carrell and Tina Fey. I would marry either or both of them, simply because they are insanely witty and deliver a line like no one else. Except...each other.

*Getting out of your comfort zone. My girlfriends and I went to an open casting call for extras in a scene/scenes being shot in my Valley for the move The Big Year, with Steve Martin and Jack Black. I think they were looking for "birding" types as the movie is about some guys who spend a year searching for the most rare birds they can find. We are definitely not "birding" types and so very likely won't get a call back (also there were almost 400 people who showed up for the call) but that's okay, because the thought of being on a movie set makes me kind of want to throw up. But we all firmly believe you should do things you've never done before - so there we were, getting our picture taken by an assistant to some super-fab casting director.

*Friends. The above-mentioned girlfriends are my life-savers/shrinks/partners in crime. When all else fails, we eat and drink and solve the worlds problems. There is no cure for the blues/a cold/heartbreak/violent mood swings like hot wings and libations with great friends.

I hope all of my American neighbours are having a wonderful Memorial day weekend!
Blessings!

Hot wings are the way to go when you have a cold! Someone told me once that putting things on your feet such as vick's vapor rub helped a cold, maybe some of that left over hot wing sauce would do the trick. When is Summer gonna get here and when it gets here I'll be praying for a cool breeze, there is just no pleasing me. Get better, sending you some warm positive cold bashing thoughts your way.

Colds are really a downer. I seem to have weak spot for them. Time seems to be the only cure.
We should always push our comfort zone and try something new. It makes life more interesting. X.

Hope you are feeling better :) I love your list of things to help... hotwings and libations along with good laughter should be at the top of almost every list.
