I'm feeling sick...and am sick of the news

  • I'm sick. I normally don't get sick at all, however over the last 3 months I have been sick twice. (See also my PSA about NyQuil and Wine) Believe me...it.is.annoying. I felt the worst that I have felt all week long last night - and unfortunately that means that I have to put a HUGE fail stamp on my beloved GYAMA. I should have specified, of course, that the only exceptions to GYAMA is if you are sick - and are a wussy like me.
  • I have an interesting development on my foot. It is healing, however it feels... weird. Not weird like the feeling of joy I get when watching the show Cougartown (sooo good) but weird like: When I take a step with it I can feel a ligament rubbing up against something. It feels like a combination of stepping on foam and that feeling that you get when you clench/grit your teeth and they slide against each other. But, it is getting better. If it doesn't pass after a day or two I'll probably have to cough up another copay go get it checked out.
  • If I could figure out a way to bottle the wake-up powers of a phone call in the middle of the night, I could retire immediately. Oh wait, I guess that is just called "cocaine".
  • I like Adam Lambert's new song, "What do you want from me?". Yeah, I said it. Unleash the torrent of laughter. Of course, the eyeliner I could do without - but I don't judge.
  • I may be dating myself as young, and maybe a little inconsiderate, WHY WHY is Corey Haim's death news? I've watched no fewer than 5 newscasts (I watch a lot of news) that had very long segments on him. Haiti can't be doing that good, there are STILL aftershocks in Chile, I still haven't won the lottery, and last night a tornado killed someone in the good old USA. Seriously, the guy from Lost Boys is what we're talking about? I need to watch less news and more Cougartown.

Are you getting old and soft on us? You're sick; you like Cougartown; Adam Lambert is your new found hero. What the hecks is going on over there?

Grinding sensations in your foot are generally not a good sign. But- with a little bottled energy I am sure you can run through it.

I think the Nyquil has you a bit out of it. I kinda like that song too. Not so hot on Cougar town, however. Maybe it's because I wish I was a cougar and I am just jealous.

Christy said...

When I first heard the news I thought to myself, "Corey Haim? Who the hell is that? Oh....Lost Boys guy..."

Cougar Town? Can't relate with you there. But Adam Lambert's new song? I hear ya. Love it.

Hope you get feeling better soon. Sickness sucks.

Corey who?? See, just one more reason not to watch "the news". I was listening to the radio this morning and they were talking about how Corey Feldman was on Larry King yesterday. Hard hitting, important stuff right there...way to go, Skeletor...I mean, Larry.

Let's chalk all this lunacy up to global warming. Seriously, I hope you feel better soon and GYAMA!

I will go out of my way to avoid watching the news or seeing a newspaper. It's depressing as hell. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

Cougar town? Really? That is almost as bad as watching the news! Oh, wait. You watch that crap also!!!

No wonder you run. :)

kilax said...

Yikes. The feeling you are describing in your foot sounds... gross! Ouch! I hope you aren't in this stage of healing for very long. And that you feel better soon!

Julie said...

Hi Adam,
Man, are you really sick? Take some drugs, drink plently of fluids and get lots of rest:) Take care of you!

I have not seen this show Cougar Town...I can only imaging:) Is it good humor or do you watch it for the hot older women?

Have a good one Adam!!

Kelly said...

On behalf of "the news", I'm sorry. I don't make these decisions... I just air them.

Lisa said...

haha! I LOVE Cougartown! So glad Courtney Cox is back on tv.

Hope you feel better soon. You really gotta figure out why you're getting sick so often so you can stay well!

A hurt foot and a cold :-/
BAD NEWS BEARS.

Seems like a lot of people are teasing you for this post. Don't they realize you are "fragile" right now? ;-)

I know I run with colds...but for some reason if I'm running inside it seems to make me feel better than laying around. Maybe if I rested more the colds would go away faster?

I actually like "What Do You Want From Me" too! I just try to not think about the fact it's Adam Lambert singing it :-P

I didn't know who Corey Haim was until I Googled him. I don't really watch the news daily...that may make me a bad person...but I do check twitter and read the Examiner daily. I'd rather just pick and choose what I want to read than sit down to an hour of programming.

I'm from South Africa so I've got no idea who the guy is that died. Being sick sucks big time if you want to train. Good luck with that!

RunningLaur said...

Get much much better soon. Fingers crossed that the foot is just an irritated tendon that's going to be happy in a few more days.

And Corey Hame, or whatever spelling it is. I only know him as the guy who was a train wreck on 'Two Coreys' and I think maybe a 'Celebrity Rehab' or something. So the overdose is def no surprise at all. Train. wreck.

Running Through Phoenix said...

I want to move to Cougar Town!

Ace said...

Excuse me, Corey Haim = that guy from Snowboard Academy... ;)

Hope you feel better soon.
