Dudes. Being Sick is Horrid.

I've had an achy body and a fever for, like, 2 days and I just slept for 10 hours straight. Right now, I just want a cute boyfriend who will bring me soup, caress my hair, tuck me in bed and make me feel all better. There should be a decree - this shit needs to happen during the week, not on weekends.

And since I’ve jacked up on a lot of meds, I'm fearful you shouldn't hold out much hope for the quality of what's to follow.

As I might have revealed, I feel like crap. But I’m pretty good at being sick – I lay low, drink lots of fluids, read magazines and check Facebook quite regularly. The combination of a sick day plus a rainy day yesterday was getting to be too much even for me, so I tried to bundle up and go into the city to do some shopping, but the thought of getting out of my slacks kind of wore me out, so I’m going to return to my strict regimen of Drinking Fluids and Looking at Stuff for one more day.

When I felt sick during my school days I was allowed to stay at home and watch TV all day. I'd overindulge on old episodes of Knight Rider, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, The Lucy Show and The Centurions. And if you're too little to remember those shows or weren't even alive when they were on, please don't tell me. It would depress me. And I'm physically frail as it is.

Speaking of television, I have to admit I'm kinda digging Castle. When I first watched it, I thought it sucked. I didn't get the excitement. Now, it rox (and rox is to rocks as hot is to hott - you read it here first).

Okay. Good evening...or good night...or whatever. I'm getting back in bed.

If you need me, I'll be the one surrounded by tissues clutching a bottle of cough syrup like a homeless dude holds on to a bottle of cheap alcohol for dear life.

I’m not gonna lie, I wish I had the time and eloquence to cover all this music that I’ve suddenly discovered but an overpowering workload and being sick makes that sort of thing difficult – no matter how much I’d enjoy doing it. Not only am I unfocused, but it takes a lot for me to even begin to wind down and give any artist my complete attention. That’s the beauty of it all, though I guess. That instant where I am able to really just become infatuated with a track and talk hungrily on its details… which brings me to the subject of The Stills, an indie rock group from Canada. These guys have been producing music for almost a decade now. ‘Retour a vega’ is captivating and irresistible. The French lyrics sprinkle on top of a pulsating beat and an absurdly catchy hook. You almost need to make up a new word for this song, because “catchy” just don’t cut it in describing how friggin’ addicting the song is.

Hey Eve!

Ditto first paragraph except it started yesterday for me. So it covered my weekend, the FIFA final AND right now its in my Monday! For the first time in the longest time I am feeling like crap. And because I know how it is, I wish you get all better real real soon and have a great week. I'm sure it will end well for you with the Soulmate gig :)

As for me, I had forgotten I am travelling to Hyderabad on the 16th and that adds to my load of feeling like crap right now...I'm missing Soulmate again. Someone needs to get me out of this jinx I swear.

@ Bhumika's Boudoir: Thanks. I suppose my post was rather coherent for being drug induced.

@Kroswami: hahaha. Thanks for that. You should keep sharing your thoughts. I feel better already. Cheerio then.

@Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini: I think the grief of a separation has manifested itself in physical ailments.

@Anupama: Awe, drink a lot of water and rest rest rest :) *Sick Eve Tucks you in the blanket*
Ack, you're missing it again. Dont worry, Soulmate will always come back to B'lore. :)

@Imcha: 1) Stew the love into a chicken noodle soup.
2)Poufy bangs and a perm. :D
3)Sure... my closet.
4)Yes. The bigger the better.
5)hahaha. Yes. And disease free.

I hope so cos right now it feels like the sky has fallen. Thanks for the comment.

@Choco: Awww... I cant believe you think I'm sensible. That's the sweetest thing anyone's ever said to me. haha
I'm almost done with the second season of Castle. Cant wait to see what plays out between Richard and Kate. :)

OpaHmar said...

I am currently hooked on Castle, tho i likened it to a little more sophisticated Scooby-doo show
Get well soon, a little bed rest never hurts anyone

Eveline said...

@OpaHmar: hahaha..Well I love me a good crime show. As a show 'Castle' might not be at the top. But then I'm heavily biased towards almost anything with Nathan Fillion. :)
Thanks for writing in. Will head on over to your blog in awhile.
Other than sleep...brandy does WONDERS.
