I Need a Friday...

Yesterday was a lost day. I fell under the baleful influence of a head cold and spent much of the day sleeping and shivering. I had a really hard time getting warm. I fully admit that it's cold outside. When I left the house yesterday morning it was -11F (-23.8C) with a wind chill of -33F (-36.1C), but I was properly bundled up, so that wasn't my problem. This head cold has really hit me hard, though.





I finally gave up on sleeping in bed at 2am this morning. It is highly distracting to hear crackling when I breathe, so I moved downstairs where I could elevate a bit. I may end up sleeping in the recliner for a couple of nights while I try to get over this stupid cold. I have to be at work today, so I'll find out how crummy I really feel. If it is horrible, I'll leave work early and go to the clinic for some meds.



Project Runway All Stars last night had the designers creating a flamboyant cocktail dress for Miss Piggy. Yes, the one and only Miss Piggy of The Muppets. I agree that grey and pink are colors that traditionally go together, but Austin Scarlett's pink was more mauve and it was a horrid choice of color. He was in the bottom three, but is safe for another week. Michael was the winner with a lovely, multicolored dress featuring a flat bow down the right front side. I didn't like Rami's dress at all, but it was Gordana who went home.

It is indeed seriously freezing, but we pile on the layers and rely on good insulation and good furnaces. Yesterday was miserable, and sleeping wasn't that great, but today I do seem to be doing better than yesterday, so maybe I'm on the tail end of this stupid cold. Thanks for the good wishes :-)

Oh yeah - really, really cold. We'll be back in the 20's by Sunday though, so it's a temporary cold snap.

I hope I'll get well soon too - LOL.

I've been rooting for Michael since the first episode.

I hope you can get some rest over the weekend.
Michael is very talented. I love Michael, Austin and Rami, and I have a feeling it may well come down to those three, although when Austin blows it, he really does, so he may not survive to the finals.

Just trying to make it until Sunday :-)

Oh yes, it is very cold. I'm quite a bit farther north than your daughter is, though, so you should still be comfortable when you visit in a week.

I've been in very cold climates in the andes, but nothing like that. I've already bought one of those jackets that will keep me warm. But I think I'd not survive where you live. (g)

Take care!
It's not too bad, you get used to dressing in layers and you have appropriate clothing. Fortunately we don't have to be outdoors for any length of time (at least, not most of us) so having those massive chilling temps are usually short-term exposure.

All we have in my city are drizzles, in winter, and if it rains (once every many years), we are surprised and worried. (g)
Oh no, my sympathies! I hope you feel better soon!

I wish I could design a dress for Miss Piggy! I bet she has incredibly high standards.
Some of the best designers in the business have designed for Miss Piggy. I think she would be a hoot to design for, and a very discerning client.

Thanks for the positive thoughts :-)
