Nyquil Shots On Me

I don't know if my body is still in shock from its recent foray into the alien world of The Gym, or if I just didn't use enough Purell after touching the germ colonies that are the handle bars of the eliptical machine, but I've got a nice head cold.

Ah, exercise. You suck.

I thought exercise was supposed to boost your immune system, but apparently if you don't do it on a regular basis (and by regular I mean more than once every decade), it can be a bit of a shock to your system.

I've been sucking down Halls throat drops all day, but all I've got to show for it is a really red tongue and sore throat that won't be deterred by a nice candy coating.

I admit that I am a total wimp when it comes to being sick. If I have a fever of above 100 degrees, I'm convinced I'm dying.

The only good thing about being sick is Nyquil. I don't know what people did before Nyquil. I personally like to shotgun it with a lime chaser. Kidding. I'm kidding, sort of. If you guys don't hear from me it means I'm on a Nyquil bender and I'm sleeping off a Cherry flavor hangover. Wish me luck!

And guys - don't forget - if you donate at least $25 to the Red Cross or to the Bush Clinton Katrina fund for the victims of Hurricane Katrina and send me your donation receipts at cara@caralockwood.com before the end of September, you could win a signed copy of "I Do (But I Don't)." Just email me your donation receipts at cara@caralockwood.com. I'll be picking winners on October 1.

So I tried to comment last week about Britney spears new baby..while I was at work and apparently they frown upon that sort of " internet usage" because it never got posted. Oh and my boss told me that I couldn't do that anymore. ( I work in a Childrens hospital. Hello CHILDREN ?? Britney had a CHILD?? No one really cared or got it....I thought it was important.)I love Nyquill, it's one of the best inventions ever (long with M.A.C lipglass,cell phones, & people magazine.) I don't like the cherry though I prefer the green kind.

Hi Jessica!

Well, that's just wrong. It's work-related. I mean, obviously! They just lack vision.

feel better cara! just wondering, if i sent you my donation receipts, would i have a good chance of winning a signed copy of "I Do (But I Don't)? i'm a huge sucker for contests =)

Hi Monica!

Your chances are better than excellent. Sadly, I don't think I've had even 10 people enter yet, if you can believe it. Either they really hate the Red Cross, or they've just been busy and have meant to but forgot to send me their receipts.

Good luck!
