Just starting to feel like posting; I've been doing a bit of commenting, and exchanging email with my brother, but haven't really been up to much else.
I've spent the last week with some sort of miserable bug that has my sinuses packed up tight, my lungs coughing out nasty stuff (reminded me of walking pneumonia, but I don't have a fever), and every joint in my body hurting like hell. The doctor gave me some stuff for my nose, some steroids for my lungs, a bunch of antibiotics, and they are all finally starting to make me feel like something a little bit better than hammered dogshit. Hell, I haven't even shaved my face or head in a week now; my beard and what's left of my hair (I normally shave the sparse amount on my cranium) are all fuzzy now; they're mostly silver these days, so I look funny and shiny when the light shines on my head. If I get doing better, I may be able to post my random blitherings more often.


I've pretty well quit reading anything about the elections, a person can only take in so much bullshit before choking, and there's no shortage of that in the news. Anything I watch on television I record on DVR these days, rather than watching live; that way I can zap all the phony-ass political lies, accusations, and mud-slinging that is so ubiquitous from both sides.


This picture was one I took a few weeks ago at my niece's place. No real reason for posting it, other than I thought the (overweight)cat was sort of cool looking.

Felt like more mellow stuff today; not a real lot of bangin' and twangin' in this bunch.
Any favorites here? Anyone who recognizes more than half of them?

I think I got the sinus thing. My head hurts so bad my eyes feel like they'll pop out and my teeth even hurt.

That is a cool looking cat.

Nora Jones is always a fave.

aw. hey. I hope you feel better soon. being sick sucks. I know, Im sick all the time!

Amyway, too I refuse to watch, read, talk, listen to anymore politics. I just can't stomach anymore.

terri: that's how I've been feeling; it is finally getting better now.

meleah: at least mine is getting better; I'm just glad I don't have to fight the stuff you have. Having a bad ticker and back is bad enough.

""Friend of the Devil" by The Grateful Dead"

I am listening to that RIGHT NOW!


James Higham said...

Do you have anti-biotics for the anti-biotics, Bob?

BobG said...

meleah: not too many people familiar with that one.

james: I have yoghurt, that help counteract the side effects of antibiotics. I'm just glad to be doing better right now.

meleah rebeccah said...

Ah Th Dead. Some of the best days of my life were at Dead Shows.

James Higham said...

Yoghurt, huh?

I'm getting tired of the news too. I've been DVRing only Wife Swap reruns. Watching those women scream at new families for being freaks is more relaxing than this election.

I love this kitty picture (and the one below)!
