Things I’ve learned after seven days of being sick…

1. Prescription cough syrup tastes better if taken through a straw.

2. It is possible to sleep sitting up…when you are THAT tired.

3. I’ve become a fan of the Neti Pot. Funny story. If I had the energy, I would write about the ginormous green/brown blob that fell from my sinus cavity in the sink after my second attempt to get water to come out of my nose. Good times.

4. How I Met Your Mother is one of the funniest shows on TV. How have I missed this?

5. If you cough enough, you get an ab workout as well. No need to be upset that this incurable sickness is keeping you from starting that exercise program you were so excited about.

6. Chicken noodle soup loses its nostalgia after eating it for six meals in a row. Replace with pints of ice cream. For the sore throat of course.

7. Laughing hysterically at something you saw on The Office or Ugly Betty will result in a coughing fit that will last approximately 17 minutes. Proceed with caution.

8. I miss Alias and all of its Michael Vaughn goodness.

9. Kleenex/snot rags multiply when you aren’t looking.

10. “Resting one’s eyes” at work for 30 minutes is unacceptable.

I absolutely LOVE How I Met Your Mother…one of the most underrated shows on tv in my opinion!!

Oh and did anyone else see that supposedly Carrie Underwood is now dating Travis Stork (Dr. from Tenn I think)…crazy!

Get well soon, Lincee! Enjoy your DVR’d episodes of past favorites–Bachelor/Bachelorette, DWTS, American Idol–and feel better!

Bless your heart! I hope you get to feeling better soon!!!!
In case you are running out of shows, check out the new VH1 show “Rock of Love Charm School” where some of the chicks from “Rock of Love 1 & 2” are given manners lessons from the one and only Sharon Osborne. I know….I watch WAY too much tv.

I could probably start my own blog about how much I LOVE How I Met Your Mother. Seasons 1-3 are available on DVD – I recommend watching them all to catch up on all of the inside jokes. You won’t be disappointed. One of the best shows ever, freakin hilarious!!

Get better soon!

Get well soon! If you like “How I Met Your Mother,” you should also check out “Big Bang Theory”. And I second your thoughts on “Alias” and all the Michael Vaughn hotness…:)

Too bad you are feeling sick. I am on day 8 of my illness and can definitely relate to numbers 1, 2, 5 & 7. My abs feel freaking great! And I am sure you already watch this but if you don’t you should check out 30 Rock, also one of the best shows out there today!

How have you not been watching HIMYM? It is the best show! I really miss Michael Vaughn too!

Feel better!

Lauren

Feel better Lincee! I know how you feel…I’ve been fighting ragweed allergy yuckiness for the last few weeks and feel like I’m one sneeze away from a sinus infection, myself. Good times! And, there’s nothing wrong with drinking cough syrup from the bottle…this time last year, I was doing the same thing with my codeine-laced Robitussin!!

Laurie

You don’t deserve that. That shouldn’t happen to people like you.

Sue

I agree with #4 Maureen – -you totally need to go back and watch old episodes of HIMYM! There are so many inside jokes that make it even funnier!

Sue

and I just saw that Ryan and Trista are expecting again: http://icydk.com/2008/10/14/trista-ryan-expecting-baby-no-2/

To help you feel better (hopefully not worse?) Here is a link to an interview with D and Jesse, found via their website deannaandjesse.com: http://www.jezebelmagazine.com/ArticleView.aspx?article=051e8b6d-c284-4fde-a6ac-bc4e42ab7fa3

I admire honesty but it seems maybe their relationship is showing a strain, what with being together all the time and “clinging” to one another in unfamiliar places, and acknowledging that they’ve only been together for a few months in very unusual circumstances….of course, maybe I am reading too far into things and they are distracted from chatting with ABC over televised wedding plans.

I love How I Met Your Mother! Many people have missed this. I watch this and the Big Bang Theory every Monday and don’t know anyone else that finds them as hilarious as I do. and I deeply miss me some Michael Vaughn…sometimes I will watch Never Been Kissed just to see his gorgousNess. Hope you start feeling betta.
