I’ve had the last two days off from work. It was kind of perfect since we just came off a four day weekend for Thanksgiving. It allowed me to do absolutely nothing over those four days (same pajamas for three straight days!) and put off all my errands, etc. to these last two days.

Let’s face it, it’s much easier running errands during the week when the rest of the world is at work or school. This is especially true during this time of year. I needed to make a MAJOR Target run and you cannot pay me enough money to go into a Target store on a weekend between Black Friday and Christmas. That’s like walking directly into the depths of hell.

I came down with a cold early Monday morning too, so these two days have really helped me to rest and take care of it so it goes away soon. It moved from a scratchy, sore throat to now mostly some congestion and a runny nose. I’m hoping this afternoon’s three hour nap kicked this cold to the curb.

I still need to get my flu shot. Can you get it if you have a cold? I think I might get it after work on Friday so I have the weekend to rest in case I come down with anything else. I’ve only ever gotten sick from the flu shot once, but you never know.

I really disconnect from the internet when I’m off. This is fine on weekends when most everyone else does the same thing. I mean, I’ll be on Twitter all day even when I’m not at work, but I rarely check email or Facebook and I don’t read any blogs. I am so out of the loop.

I am apparently just writing random thoughts as they come into my head and making them a post. See, I figured I should write something, this being the last day of November. And even though I failed NaBloPoMo, I still wrote a lot this month and figured I should write the first day of the month and the last, at the very least.

In all honesty, I’m waiting for my Megavideo account to reset so that I can keep watching Six Feet Under. Have you all seen this show? Of course you have. Its 10 years old. IT IS AWESOME! I’m really, really enjoying it. I’m still having a hard time with gay Dexter, but he’s growing on me. I have to stop thinking of him as a serial killer. Hard to do when he’s a FUNERAL DIRECTOR. It’s almost the same! Anyway, this show is awesome, and if you haven’t watched it, you should. Trust me on this.

(My Netflix DVD was broken and wouldn’t play (probably since it is 10 years old) and since I’m impatient and have cleared out most of my DVR, I needed to watch the episodes online rightthissecond. I seriously couldn’t imagine waiting 2 days for the replacement DVD.)

And now I’m off to see if I can keep watching.

    I think you can get your flu shot when you’ve got a bit of a cold, as long as you don’t have a fever.

    WARNING: I balled like a baby on the finale. I think it was one of the BEST finales I’ve watched from a show ending.
    gorillabuns´s last blog post ..JUST where does that trash go?

    I finally got round to watching Six Feet Under a couple of years ago too.
    It’s brilliant, and so amazing, once you get past Michael C Hall NOT being Dexter.

    It has THE most amazing season finale I have EVER seen.

    Since we are sharing random crap, I thought this would be an appropriate time to tell you this story. So, ever since your issues with “the Kristin Johnsons” and “poop in the fridge”, I have taken to calling my ongoing digestive issues ( yes, I too have had poop in the fridge) as “the Kristin Johnsons”. Which is fine when I was doing that IN.MY.HEAD. Unfortunately, I have been doing that for so long that it made it’s way out of my mouth. WHEN I WAS TRYING TO TELL MY PHARMACY PROFESSOR WHY I MISSED CLASS. Ummm, awkward…..

    We watched it the other way around…so it was weird to think of Dexter as NOT DAVID FISHER. Funny. We loved the series. Absolutely loved it. I’m so glad you are watching it!!!!
