Thoughts from the Couch

I've learned a few things this weekend while spending some quality couch time letting my immune system do it's job and fight off the invaders.

  • Staying home from work while sick is always better when it's raining.
  • I have no idea what you're supposed to do in an earthquake. Ask Ian.
  • Tea is best with lemon juice. Fresh lemon.
  • I may be more productive working from home than at work - go figure.
  • Between Mary Poppins and Sound of Music - I'd say Sound of Music wins - but it is a very long movie.
  • Best TV all weekend - Cancellara & Boonen dropping everyone in Tour of Flanders. The cobblestones are crazy!



Your right on Sound of Music. I thought Boonen was going to fall at one point climbing those cobblestones.

And just like Cancellara, I usually pump to the finish at 31mph after a 6 hour ride.....not!!

Still can't believe there was an earthquake...glad you are safe, from the earthquake that go kill those invaders!

Beth said...

Glad you guys are safe from the earthquake! I wouldn't know what to do either... ;) Oh and I've never made it through the entire Sound of Music. I fall asleep wayyyy to easily. :) Feel better!

Believe it or not, Sound of Music was the very first movie I ever attended. With my Mom and Grandmother even.
I was wide eyed at the opulence of the theater. Yup, that was a very long time ago!
Get well!

I'm a huge Sound of Music fan!!! I've only seen 100 times...but still love it!
Tea with fresh lemon...yummy...I'm so there tomorrow morning!
I hope you feel better!
I find it extremely amazing that you take the time to inspire others...THANKS! Your an inspiration!

I'm with Beth, I can't make it through Sound of Music. And I played Mary Poppins in school play, so I have that movie memorized, so I can't watch it anymore.

Hope you feel better.

The goat song with the puppets is our family's favorite part of The SOM. We were just reenacting that song yesterday, that was weird timing. I hope you're feeling better. Work tomorrow?

Feel better soon.

gotta leave one vote for Mary. Don't tell me it didn't make you wish you could levitate with your umbrella! Plus, if you listened to Mary, you might be better already. 'just a spoonful of sugar';)
