"we've got a blogger down, I repeat, a blogger is down"

What I feared would happen, has happened. My wonderful Florence Nightingale performance with The Husband has left me with la grippe. But, France is in the middle of a flu epidemic after all, so maybe I was bound to get it.

So here I am, in bed, with a cup of tea (which of course I had to make myself… grumble grumble, growl growl, **insert other unhappy noises**), propped up on pillows with a head that feels like it’s both floating and going to explode.

Can you tell I’m cranky?

I’m cranky.

On the bright side… Honey’s Honey will be walking Fifty today. Yesterday I walked Fifty in my pyjamas (in France! Shock. Horror. Right?), because I only had the energy to either A. get dressed or B. walk the dog, not A + B, and since Fifty had to go pee pee, pyjama dog walking it was. I’m sure I’m the scandal of the village.

But that’s nothing new really.
sicky icky bisou
 
P.S. QUICK! What’s your favorite TV show? I’m looking to ease my insufferable lonely and sick boredom. 
P.P.S. As soon as I ditch the French germ factory that has taken up residence inside my body, I will be back to tell you all about Honey B’s surprise party, and my trip to Aix last weekend. I’ll miss you guys.

  2. Ha, Delana beat me to it. Get well soon, so far I don't seem to have contracted it – fingers crossed. I love Mad Men and would like to watch Glee one of these days. Have heard the Game of Thrones is very good (no idea what it's about) or if you like dodgy vampire goings-on try True Blood. Hope you're feeling better soon x

  4. I don't know how many you can get across the pond, but my favorite comedy is “The Big Bang Theory.” I have a ton of other shows I watch so I will limit myself to a handful. My favorite sci-fi show is “Fringe.” I used to be a Glee fan for the first season or so, and then it lost focus and started drifting into some sort of after school special and I lost interest. Now my musical needs are filled by this new show “Smash.” I'm a total sucker for spy shows and love “Burn Notice.” Oh, and my favorite reality show? “The Amazing Race.” It always makes long to have the money to travel. 🙂

  5. Heya, I watch stuff on project free tv. Game of Thrones, the Big Bang Theory, Mad Men, True Blood, Teen Mom 2, Family Guy… The Daily show is free on it's website too, if you like John Stewart. I walked my dog in my pjs too this morning. Got lots of stares, oh well 🙂

  6. I'm anxiously awaiting the new season of Mad Men. I'm kind of over Glee at the moment but maybe I can get back into it. I have heard that Game of Thrones is good though, but I think I'll wait and watch it with The Husband.

  9. I hope my favorite blogger will raise up soon!! Even though I'm sure you look fabulous in your PJs, Honey's Honey is sweet to take Fifty for his walks. To help you to get your appetite back, watch the Gilmore Girls, to help you fight the PJs and running nose, watch Mad Men or PanAm for the glam'! And French TV to get some sleep! Crossing my fingers for you to get better very bientôt!

  17. Poor Skippy. La grippe sucks dogs balls. I was wondering if you're watching Smash – my sister and I watched the first two episodes the other day. Me likey. Can't believe no-one has mentioned The Vampire Diaries. It's da bomb. The first season starts off a little rocky but once it gets going – yowsers. It's pretty much my favourite TV show.I also loved Game of Thrones – not my normal bag and slow at the start, but SUCH good TV. And the second season comes out in April, so you and The Husband need to get on to Season 1 ASAP. Hope you feel better my sweet. Can you do me a favour and say to The Husband every 10 minutes “I die soon?”. puh-lease????hehe xx

  23. I am so sorry you are ill. I live in fear of The Flu. Mostly because for some odd reason, I have not gotten a flu in so many years I can't remember it. But from what everyone tells me, it is not something I want to remember.Down here at the bottom of the world, English speaking television has to come to us through nefarious means.Thus we see old series that everyone else already knows and loves and we think we just discovered them ! We are beggars and cannot choose, so our favorites at the moment are Foyles War, Justified,and of course, anything BBC so we gobbled up Downton Abbey and wish there were more English language shows like it.Feel better fast, besos.
