How can I be attracted to someone I met on FB playing FT who lives across half the world?  Hmmm.  Especially when I have my Dave here? 

No more Evian!

After 13 years or so... We are now a non-Evian household.  I purchased 3 internal filter bottles that we are using instead and its working fantastically!  And no waste!  I feel like a true tree hugger.... well close to.  We still have plastic silverware.  But I swear to buy new ACTUAL spoons, knives & forks from IKEA when I go next.  2 weeks tops.  It's amazing how much those bottles piled up, even when crushed.  Woot for saving the environment and money!

Gotta love bronchitis and its friend laryngitis

So its been almost 2 full weeks this time (the last was about 6 weeks ago, lasted about 2 weeks  and just bronchitis, not this bad, went away on its own), however this time its like an Olympic event!

"Go ahead, load your body with vitamin c, a multi-vitamin, drink water like mad and eat well! I don't care and i'll invite laryngitis to the party" it says.  Doctor gives me an inhaler and a z-pack.  Since then, the b & l duo have gone on a rampage.  Now I also get to not breathe for more than 8 min at a time without feeling like I'm gonna pass out from O2 loss (oxygen to the non-nerdy). 

So any ideas?  Anybody?  3000 mg of vitamin c and blue-green algae and spirulina and more water than seems possible along with all the good things from childhood (mentholatum on chest, neck & back; vaporiser; sleep; OJ) aren't cutting it.  And I'm running out of ideas.  It's call the doc back day tomorrow and it'll be interesting to see what she says. 

If you have any thoughts, please let me know!  Thanks and good health to all of you!  I wouldn't wish this in people I really don't like.  Truly! Later gaters!  Gonna try and sleep some before the sun rises.  Suz

It's been awhile.... and CONGRATS MR. & MRS. BANERJEE'S!!!

So, it's been awhile is an understatement. I swore to myself that when I started this blog I would keep up with it. Sharing my thoughts, my witty (well witty to me) anecdotes, my general views on this big blue marble. Well that hasn't gone as well as I'd hoped. But along with the new year (yes I realize it's almost April!) I begin anew.... almost a year since I started I think.... or two? No one.

ANYWAYS.... This is just a short note to say Thanks Erin for not jumping ship and thanks for the pic of Tiff and Animesh from last night. I literally cried. So happy for them, cause she looks not just radiant, but perfectly happy! And also sad because I was missing it. But I got a pic of Dave in his tux, the stud he is, looking dashing!! And got a sort of run down of what happened throughout the evening. I love that Tiff is happy and hope that this was one of the best nights of her life (along with the wedding in Kenya... can't wait to see pics of that!) And so in a round about way I'm expressing my joy here on the place I set up to do such things. That's what this blog is for!

So YEA TIFFY AND ANIMESH!!! MAY YOUR HAPPINESS BE LONGER THAN THE DISTANCE TO THE NEXT PLANET INHABITED BY SENTIENT BEINGS IN ANOTHER SOLAR SYSTEM!! Thank you to God, Allah, the Universe and everything else out there that helps us find the people in our lives that make life worth living. Please keep watch over the girl I still remember from the "homecoming parade" way back when.... and her love. Help them to know that it's ok to not always like the person you love (something that took me a long time to learn) as long as you truly love them with your whole heart and that money doesn't always buy happiness (makes it somewhat easier, true) as long as you have someone you love at your side during the good times and the bad. So, with that said.... I will talk to you soon!!! Love from Suzannahstan (inmates and all!!!)
