I'm sick and tired.

No, really.  I'm sick.  And I'm tired.


So, this will be a lazy post in which I link to some of the cool stuff in my reader that you might enjoy or that revolves specifically around me.



  • I was on Karl's show this past Thursday.  I was fabulous and awesome.  The way I talked about my brother (the doctor), $30 shaving cream and Harry Potter was absolutely riveting.  If you didn't get a chance to hear it, you can still download it.  I'm Episode 15.  Oh, and come to think of it maybe it's best to ignore how much I talk about Harry Potter.  That was pretty dorky in retrospect.

  • Adnan read a poem on his blog this week.  You can read it here.  It'll take you thirty seconds.  Just go.  It's really good.  I think so, anyway.

  • B.E. Earl has a trivia thing going on over at his blog.  If you look over in the upper far right of his blog, you'll see something like "Bug Eyed Trivia Challenge."  Click there and play.  I would link to it, but it seems as though it's "private."  I always suspected he was something of an elitest.  Anyway, I'm really tired of being in last place all the time.  Maybe one of you will take the fall and purposely miss a bunch of questions to boost my self esteem.

  • Slyde just found out Kanye West thinks that George Bush hates black people.  And he seems really upset.  Still, I never actually saw that for myself, so I'm glad he posted it.  The look on Mike Meyers face is priceless, and I've really been looking for good reasons to shame my husband for downloading Kanye onto our iTunes account.  The best part of the post, though, is in the comment section when Slyde and Earl rib each other about said post.  Feels like dinner with my parents.

  • Britt posted a really nice photo of me on Miss Britt in Pictures.  There aren't nearly enough comments about how gorgeous it is.  Feel free to contribute.

  • Last Sunday, I got snacked on at Dawg's place.  I want to thank the Academy...oh, wait, this is waaay better than getting one of those.  My favorite part of this post was surprisingly NOT the part where he talks about me, but where he explains the rules of the award.  And how if you e-mail him or ask him to feature you... oh, just go read it.  (Eye roll). Oh, fine, please.

And this concludes this edition of.. this specific post.

Did I mention I'm sick?

(Cough, cough).

And tired?

- Took the Trivia Quiz. Got 6 out of 10 in 114 seconds. I assume, then, that I defeated the entire purpose you had in mind of me taking it...

- Yes, you were excellent on Karl's show. And what's so wrong with Harry Potter? OR being dorky?

- Kanye's not so bad. Like most of his stuff, including that very video. The look on Chris Tucker's face is even better. :)

Oh. By the way.

I just found out last night looking at my stats that that picture received more visits than ANY other picture I've ever posted over there.

Like about 700% more. Literally.

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Britt

@adnan: You're very welcome. I liked the audio format.

@Michael Melchor: You know what? You're absolutely right. There's nothing wrong with liking Harry Potter OR being dorky.

@hello haha narf: Always giving me reasons to love ya'! He's doing a great job of taking care of me, btw.

@Miss Britt: That's because I visit it every hour on the hour. LOL.

I hope you feel better soon.

I've totally considered ganking that photo of you to put into my screensaver rotation, but I'm respecting the "don't steal my shit!" rule. (Britt, you should sell your photos.)

I agree about the Dawg snacks. Even before we were an item I was very happy to be snacked on, it made my day/week/time interval.

I only kid Slyde because,'s so fucking easy! ;)

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterB.E. Earl

passing out?! drinking?! my god woman!.....GASP*.... we really are family!!!! I didn't listen to the rest of the podcast cause I have exams and stuff. but oh my...

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKomal

@Poppy: Aww. OK, you *do* know it is completely adorable that you referred to yourself and Dawg as an "item." More proof for my Mary Tyler Moore theory.

@B.E. Earl: I know, of course. A person would have to be a fool not to see the love there. :-)

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

@Komal: Ummm Yeah, that was KARL that passed out. You should know that before you make any admissions to me about any behaviors you may be engaging in... :-P

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

hey now! I was kidding! I don't drink- I mean I do alot of things (maybe steal a bank pen or two) but I do not drink lady :P. Second I'm pretty sure you said "reminds me of my college days". kekekhhehehe.

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKomal

Poppy - please feel free to add to screen saver rotations. :-)

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Britt

Sux you feel like Shi-poopie... get better soon! I TOTALLY agreed with you & your thoughts on Harry Potter and I am NOT a dork! LOL Especially, your thoughts on the movies and their visual interpretation....

Beyond that, I TOO have Kanye West on my Itunes and am sometimes ashamed; however, do too much bouncin' and head noddin' to Gold Digger & Love Lockdown!

Anxiously awaiting your latest & greatest post-illness blog....

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterStef

Oh, and I set the quiz to private because I only wanted my bloggy buddies and their bloggy buddies to play. Otherwise any ole fool could join in just by cruising the trivia site.

So feel free to link away.

Thank you, Britt. :D

I have nothing in trade, except maybe some amazing meatloaf.

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPoppy

@Komal: OK. Whatever you do or don't do, I love you.

@Stef: "Shi-poopee?" Heh. And I haven't given up on Resolution Sunday... I'm just feeling kind of perfect this week. Hee hee.

@B.E. Earl: Oh, you don't have to explain yourself. Being an elitest is a *compliment* on this blog. ;-)

@Poppy: I want amazing meatloaf!!!

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

It's ready! Everyone come on over for meatloaf and Virginia wine!

December 7, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPoppy

Aw. Come On. I need at least a three hour notice for these kind of things. ;)

December 8, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

1) you are VERY pretty! :) I'm beyond jealous of that.

2) I hope you get to feeling better!!

December 8, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJanelle

I hope you feel better soon! I am sick, too. Fun, fun!
That picture of you is stunning. Period.

December 8, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSybil Law

@Janelle: Awww and thanks.

@Sybil Law: I expected no less than a reaction just like that from my blog wife. You always meet my expectations. That's why I e-married you.
