  1. SS2 you forgave me! No take backs on forgiveness. Plus I alleviated all your Xmas gilt with my stellar Greek skills. Plus I pinkie promise to never ever mention the D word again as long as I live.

  2. Hope you are feeling a little better today, June.
    Don’t even get me started about Downton Abbey.

  3. Matthew does need to get over himself. And they need to resolve the Bates situation one way or another. It’s taking too long!

  4. Hope you’re feeling better this morning, June!
    One of my clients gave that DA shocker away about a month ago and I’ve had to stay zip lipped ever since. Still sobbed, watching it. And yes, Amish…Matthew DOES look like he thinks they’re all bonkers!

  5. Yeah BamaCarol, I was just kidding since I sat shocked with my hand over my mouth the whole last half hour. Sometimes I think Matthew has this look like WHAT THE HELL DID I GET MYSELF INTO, THESE PEOPLE ARE CRAZY!

  6. We prefer the clementines to Cuties…is that just an Alabama thing? And Amish, how can you say DA was boring? It was so sad and I was all weepy. I just wish Mary would get pregnant already so Matthew would get over himself. Almost record warmth here in Bama with highs in the 70s! Is this January???

    Happy Monday morning to everyone.
    I know we can’t talk about Downton Abbey here what with spoilers and all but last night was so ding dang boring.
    Hope Pie peeps up in the Minneapolis area are staying safe, lots of ice up there. My husband says at least they know how to drive.

    Is it possible to catch your cold by reading your post? Because now I’ve got the crud. Cough, cough, cough.

  9. I usually get the DOG scan, myself. But have had *plenty* of CT Scans. Sorry you’re sick. Damn creeping crud.

  10. Feel better, June. Nothing makes feeling yucky better than getting snuggled by a warm, purry kitsy. (And perhaps watching one of your dogs skid everywhere, but I digress.) Also, the free cat scan is always a plus. Wha was her diagnosis? That you weren’t feeding her enough?

  11. I like Cuties, too. I could eat a case by myself in a few days.
    My ex-father-in-law used to say “a cold is a week in coming, a week in staying, and a week in going away”. Sadly, I’ve found that he was pretty accurate.

  12. We are slow to the Downton Abbey bandwagon, and we are just now watching season 1. We’ve seen 3 episodes. We’re still figuring out everybody’s names. GAH. We need a user’s guide.
    Does each season only have SEVEN episodes, because?
    Rip off! Just when we get all involved, it will be on to the next season.

  13. Yes, thank you! It’s quite the dilemma, but I think we’ve solved it. The SAG awards are repeating from 10 till midnight, so I will probably watch that. Nothing trumps Downton!

  17. Same here. In bed under the electric blanket. With TWO cat scans. Although there is so much pollen in south Georgia that it could be allergies wiping me out.

  18. Raising my hand as part of the Cold Crew. I have just completed week 2. However, I do feel like I am on the mend.
    Here’s hoping June’s cold leaves much sooner than that!
    Also? I am nominating Mary Lou up there for COTW. Loved it!

  19. No advice here. Just sympathy. Tea and sympathy. The tea is for me, unless you want some, because it just might… Oh never mind! Feel better there Junie!

  20. You gotta keep taking the Emergen-C. It won’t cure a cold but it sure does make it so you get better faster.
    Oh and soup. Chicken soup. Even if you have to buy it from the Chinese place.
    You’re welcome because I know how much you love the advice.

  21. I’m sorry, June. People with rotten colds should get lots of sympathy and pampering. If I were in town I would bring over some French Onion Soup (homemade), with lots of black pepper.
    You certainly have put my blind left eye into perspective. Ha. Could that be a joke? Can’t see to tell.
    When I’m not well I feel like the Downstairs Maid to the Upstairs Pet. They’re always ringing some kind of damn bell to make me drag myself around to serve their ever present needs, wants and whims.
    Blow. Wipe. Repeat.

  22. I hope you feel better soon! I only have one cold remedy in my arsenal that I learned from the evil, germ phobic doctor who happened to be my boss for three years of my LIFE. He was a deadringer for Nosferatu, but I digress. The remedy involves lots of herbal tea and regular doses of Sudafed. Moves the snot along faster, helps with the stuffiness.

  23. Now, see, if you had a Kindle or Nook, you could download a book or five and live life. I recommend Whistling in the Dark by Leslie Kagen…and then the sequel, Good (Saving?) Graces.
    Feel better!
