Being sick sucks!

I have a nasty sore-throat, coughing, headache, mucus thing going on. That's bad enough, but tonight the Roxie is showing one of my favorite movies in the world, To Live and Die in LA featuring the insanely young and gorgeous William Peterson. Amazing performances by Willem Dafoe, John Turturro, and Dean Stockwell absolutely oozing sleaze. Brilliant score by (don't laugh) Wang Chung. I haven't seen it on the big screen since the original release. I really want to go.

However, even if I can fend off the coughing with syrup and cough drops, it wouldn't be fair to go out when I might be contagious. (The Roxie is a small theater and the NOT NECESSARILY NOIR festival is very popular.)

OOOoo! Cool video! I've never seen those guys smile, esp. the lead singer.

The score they did for the movie is incredible. It's too bad their career didn't go further.

He's never been hotter. (Or more of a BAMF.)

Sorry you're sick :( Feel better soon!

Bless you for being the sort of person who doesn't go out when they're contagious! Everyone I know seems to delight in spreading their germs!

I did ask some people to dine with me on Sunday, which I felt quite guilty for. The worst part was that I absolutely could not call in sick, so I spent five days at work, pretty much drinking Mucinex from the bottle. BLECH!

Is it wrong that my first thought was that I hope I didn't make you sick the last time we chatted (over IM)? lol

And I'm still hoping I didn't infect anyone I came in contact with during the last week, including the people I selfishly invited to dine with me on Sunday to celebrate my birthday.

Thanks hon! Finally feeling better. Living around the corner from the Roxie is one of many fabulous things about living in my neighborhood.

It took most of a week, but I'm back among the living. Thanks for the good thoughts
