The ick

Tuesday nite, like a ton of bricks, I felt like crap. I was fine, fine, and then a switch went off, had a headache, congested and exhausted like someone zapped my ass. Wednesday, no better and then I saw a weather report - POLLEN is at it's highest point all year! Great, so what I had was not the ick just an extreme case of vaginitis, er, allergies. I thought I was going down for the count, felt like someone hit me over the head with a sledge hammer. Thankfully, not. Blasted allergies kicking my arse all over town. Time to blast out the sinuses with some saline. I like to call it the nasal douche. Force some saline mix up the schnoz and it comes out the other side. If you're lucky, you'll get a prize, a little piece of lint or string or something. Tis the season for a regular nasal douche! Bless it!

Needless to say, we'll just have to call it noWorkout Wednesday. I did, however, have the pleasure of catching Jerry Springer - how IS that still on TV? Something about transvestites and baby momma and such. Who knows. It's all an act but how can you even bother? I also saw a portion of Daisy of Love (taken after the Rock of Love Bus). I'm a trash tv fan but even I couldn't watch. Dr. Phil had a girl on there that had a severe case of ineedtoeatacheeseburger and I never made it to Ofra. What a day, aren't you glad you asked?

I got a message from Blondie that made me laugh...

The psych ward called and said someone showed up drunk, wearing a thong and riding a goat. I'm gonna come get you but this shit has to stop! I love my friends. They know how to make me laugh.

Thursday is another day....

I feel like I'm nasal douching everytime I get in the pool - maybe I need one of those nose clippy things. MAYBE that'll be my key to flip turn success!!!

Chloe said...

Ahh!! Alergies! Just use put your guns to work and beat the hell out of it. I know you will win.

Yeah - Daisy of Love must be pretty bad it two of the biggest trash tv watchers can't stand it.

Get to feeling better!

Marcy said...

Oooohhh girl did you know that Maury is still on too? All he does nowadays is paternity results. So freakin trashy and I love it!

IronBob said...

Hard to believe Springer was mayor of Cincinnati at one time. Amazing what some people do for money.
Hope you feel better.

Allergies... ugh! Go and show em whos boss!

You just have to know that half your readers looked at the title of your blog, and paused. Paused with the coffee cup half way to their mouth. Put it down, and swallowed whatever was in progress. AND THEN opened your blog to read it. Meanwhile, their imagination was running rampant, which is a tough thing to deal with first thing in the morning.

You did that deliberately, you little devil you!

Saline is salt water. The Calgary pools use a salt water system. So why isn't the effect the same?

Unplug the trash TV. Your brain will thank you for it.

Carolina John said...

see if you can get some local honey. it's supposed to help ease the allergies. they have put me down a bunch here lately.

The Running Girl said...

Sorry about the allergies. They get bad here, too. And I'm right there with you on the trash tv. My husband use to make fun of me because I so looked forward to being off the week of Christmas so I could watch all the trash tv.

kristen said...

What about charm school? One of the kickers of getting kicked off that show should be immediate sterilization!

Bill said...

"said someone showed up drunk, wearing a thong and riding a goat." What, no picture? It would make one heck of a "Semi-Wordless Wednesday" shot. And was it a dude or a gal. I'm guessing a dude. This would make a great bit for Reno 911.

There is literally NOTHING you wouldn't bless, is there, sister?

Admit it.

nasal douching...lol!

TRI-james said...

I used to be a big nasal douche fan - now the pool does it for me.

Benson said...

You got me at "...drunk...thong...a goat..."
I'm peeing my pants.

Wes said...

I, personally, would swap a workout for the crack hos on Jerry Springer any day :-D, especially when the pollen is so high you can see it in the air!

"I like to call it the nasal douche. Force some saline mix up the schnoz and it comes out the other side. If you're lucky, you'll get a prize, a little piece of lint or string or something." Blog comment of the week!

Hope you're feeling better soon. CLARITIN ROCKS

Runner Leana said...

Regular nasal douches....sounds like fun! Hope you got a great prize at the end!!

Jo Lynn said...

Allergies suck! My daughter suffers miserably. Daytime TV sucks even more. Lifetime channel is where it's at during the lunch hour, and that's about it.

Feel better my dear. ;)

Kelli said...

Ewwww - feel better but I have to say a day of trash TV is totally worth having allergies!

ShirleyPerly said...

Nasal douche, HA! I'm sure it's not fun but you sure are funny :-)

KK said...

Nasal douche...funny, yet something I obviously need to make a regular part of my routine-thanks for the reminder!

I saw that Jerry Springer AND Maury are both still on and thought the same thing today-c'mon people, really?

Hope you feel better. Pollen blows.

Marit Chrislock-Lauterbach said...

Hey feel better asap! Allergies are just downright awful. Yeah, I hear you on that Daisy of Love... I managed to stomach less than 5 minutes before turning away from the TV in disgust. As for Jerry Springer? The man never ages. How about doing a show about THAT. Somehow the transvestites with baby-momma-I'm-really-your-cousin-drama seems more exciting. Well that, or anything to do with Steve. Eeks? Did I just admit to knowing the body guard's name?

Feel better asap!

Shazza said...

Hope you're feeling a little less icky today.

Nasal douche is a term I will always use from now on, and it will make me think of you. Amazing, the new vocabulary you are teaching me....teabagging, banana hammock, nasal douche...

Calyx Meredith said...

Nasal douche and shark week - two things you have brought to my life. Pretty sure I won't ever follow you to the land of riding a goat while drunk and wearing a thong though.

Tilghman Carroll said...

I too got caught the funk...put me out of commission for a good two days and made my measly 7 mile run turn into a 5 mile run/walk this morning...I hate being sick!

Hope you feel better!!!
