Monday- The SickEdition

Saturday morning I woke up and I was sick. I had a sore throat, cough and a stuffy nose that was running. How is that possible? One nostril is clogged while the other pours buggers. I don't get it. It's one of life's mysteries, like why Paris Hilton is famous or why otherwise normal people put an empty gallon jug of milk back in the fridge.

Sunday I woke up at the crack of noon. Noon. I was wiped out, and my husband knew it which was why he did not disturb me. Bless him. My day consisted of sitting on the couch, lying on the couch, drinking tea with honey, more lying on the couch, making people bring me more blankets, (not strangers, my family- strangers bringing me blankets would be weird) and then sleeping on the couch.

I did manage to stay up to watch Celebrity Apprentice because, Hello?- Curtis Stone. The accent! The hair! The cooking! OK, in all fairness, he does not cook on the Apprentice, but he does cook in real life. Kevin laughs when the camera just shows Curtis's face and he does not talk, because it really is the accent that gets me. He says, you would leave me for Curtis Stone, wouldn't you. No, I would not. Curtis is nice to look at and listen to but let's face it, you can't be with someone who looks like you won him in a raffle.

And! Cyndi Lauper! How much do I love her? Ever since I was a young girl of 13 and first heard her hit song Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, I was smitten. I think that she is a normal person, not someone whose celebrity has gone to her head. I have a feeling that if I called her up and asked her out to lunch, she would go with me. Or file a restraining order, and that would be OK, too.

One of my most favorite Cyndi moments is the Money Changes Everything video. I love that she hugs the crazy fan that runs up on the stage. I love her kooky dancing. But most of all I love the way she hops into that garbage can and ascends over the crowd all while holding the Moneeeeeeeeeeeeeey note.

She's fabulous, yes?

That video screams 80's! If you are a child of the 80's you will appreciate these You Might be a Child of the 80's if's:
Your bangs are teased perfectly to 7 inches above the rest of your hair.
Have multi-colored earrings that touch your shoulders.
People are constantly gagging you with spoons.
Still think banana clips were a godsend.
You remember when Pee-Wee wasn't a pervert.
You're still hoping for a New Kids on the Block reunion tour.

Not only do I remember when Pee Wee was not a perv, I have a great deal of Pee Wee's Big Adventure memorized.

You don't wanna get mixed up with a guy like me. I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel. So long, Dott.

There's no basement in the Alamo!

Oh how I loved my banana clips..... Remember the bedding that had the rainbow that went up one side of the length of the top of the bed and down the other? And you had to have the top of the arch on your pillow? Good times. And I'm so glad that you're watching Celebrity Apprentice. I indulged in it last year, but Urban Dad won't have it this year -- and he's not the type to go around "forbidding" things. So between you and The Soup, I'll hope to stay updated.
Yeesh, this got long.....
