I'm back and better :-)

When Friday rolled around and I wasn't feeling any better I figured it was time to see a doctor about my *cold*. I got some antibiotics and a recommendation for OTC Mucinex, and felt much better when I woke up Saturday.

I wasn't sure if I was well enough to go to an engagement party for a good friend of the family last night, but the party was close to my house, so we decided my dad could take me home early and then head back to the party. I totally forgot that my friends JL & RM would be there. There went staying for just a half-hour!

JL's more of my brother J's friend, since they're the same age, but since our families are friends he hangs out with me and my other brother as well. RM and I are often the only girls in the mix so we've have become really good friends too. She and JL got married last Spring. She's pretty awesome: she reads even more than I do and she knits. RM's also the person who, if asked what she'd like as a gift, always replies "A pony." She's the only other girl around my age that drinks scotch, likes it, and also knows her stuff. My friend Sip once mixed the good stuff with COKE when my back was turned!!! Sip hasn't been offered any alcohol besides beer since.

The party was fun but I ended up staying for and hour and a half. Even though I barely ate anything, I felt pretty nauseous by the time JL dropped me off at home. It was good to get out of the house though!! Other than the doctor's visit Friday I hadn't been out of the house since Tuesday. Plus I had a great excuse not to hug everyone and their mother at the party.

Today was a very quiet day. Some cleaning and some stitching, basically. I worked on my Fair & Square exchange. One square is mostly done, and now I need to come up with my *signature* square. It *might* be ready to go out this week, but probably Friday at the earliest. I have a feeling it's going to be a busy week.

If anyone's in the NYC area and wants to see The Daily Show taping Thursday, I might have a couple extra tickets. Let me know if you're interested!

Hope you feel better soon.

I'm convinced that years from now scientists will discover a "scotch" gene!! I come from a long line of very serious scotch drinkers but, try as I might, I can't swallow the stuff. I've even visited distilleries in Scotland as I was guaranteed this would make all the difference. Maybe we were swapped at birth?

I hope you're feeling better. Maybe getting out of the house will help?

I have to say, I can't drink scotch either. It just tastes like dirt to me. However, DH's friend has introduced him to "the good stuff" and he seems to like it. He got himself a nice bottle - I can't remember which it is - that he likes to have a bit of every once in a while.

I tend to stay away from brown liquors - bourbon, scotch, whiskey, etc. Which puts a damper on being 1/2 irish. I'll stick with tequilia, thanks. :-)

Hi Kim, I can't find your email on your profile (it's late here and I'm a bit brainless at the moment so it's probably just me!). Mine is: davo37@tpg.com.au

Glad to hear you are on the mend. I love scotch with orange juice. Unusual, yes, but I like the smoky/sweet taste combination.

I hope you start to feel better soon!
