'But, I'm feeling much better now.'

Can anyone tell me where I got my subject line from? Just curious. It's a reoccuring line on a TV show I use to watch. The character would always recount a wacky and/or terrible story and then end it by saying "But, I'm feeling much better now". :)

I use that line myself because I do feel better than I did yesterday. I stopped by the grocery store following work and picked up some stuff to make a proper meal. I can't recall the last time I cooked a decent meal. After I picked up a little, ate, and washed up, I crashed on the couch for the rest of the night dozing off and on until I think I turned off the TV around ten. Except for a couple trips to the bathroom, I slept until 8:30. Sleep definitely helps all things.

Today I lounged around a bit, watched the VH-1 Top 20 Countdown (who are some of these people?), and got dressed to run a few errands. Hit the sales at The Limited and Victoria's Secret. I didn't find much, but was happy with what I did find. *Finally* got a new battery for my cordless phone. I think I was down to about 45 minutes before it would start beeping at me. And picked up some yummy bread and a cookie at Panera.

The rest of the day I intend to spend doing laundry, taking down Christmas decorations, and watching DVD's. I have my player loaded up with the first two Alien flicks. I also have to try calling a friend who has been a bit under the weather (that's putting it mildly) and hopefully make it to chat tonight. Gee, I managed to go about twenty hours without being on the internet. That may be a current record! ;-)

There's a bunch of other stuff I'd like to post about, but I've been here long enough and I don't feel like doing cut tags so I shall save it for later.

I'm glad you're feeling better :)

We took Christmas decorations down today too, must be the day for it. Haven't done laundry yet, I may save it for tomorrow or Monday, as it's a holiday for us.

Nothing like a home cooked meal to make you feel better :) Since I'll be home, at least for the time being (starting Friday!), I'm going to try to cook more. I actually like to cook, but when I get home at night sometimes I'm just too tired.
There's a weekly radio show here that's made up of comedy skits. (The Royal Canadian Air Farce).

One of their regular skits - years ago - involved a Dudley Dooright type Mountie. The stories would change from week to week, but there was one set-piece that never altered.

The Mountie would somehow get knocked out with inevitability of Giles. But he wouldn't say he'd been knocked out. You'd hear a muffled thump. Then there would just be this long pause, and then you'd hear him say, "When I regained consciouness...."

Cracked me and the live audience up. Every. Time.
I have my player loaded up with the first two Alien flicks.

Oh, man, I love the Alien movies. Now you've reminded me, they are the next things I'm gonna have to get - special edition DVDs!!
Thanks to a very kind and generous person I got the Alien Quadrilogy for Christmas. It has two versions of each film (the original cut and Special Edition), commentaries, and hours and hours of extras.

I adore the first two films. The last too, not so much. Resurrection is entertaining enough but pales in comparison to the first two. And Alien3 will be hard for me to get through. I'm hoping the new cut is better, but it stil doesn't bring back Newt or Hicks. :(

It's odd watching Alien now. I definitely can see where parts of it influenced Firefly.

Harry's dad Buddy (played by John Astin) on Night Court used to say that line after recounting some bizarre illness or adventure.

You're a big Hugh Jackman fan, aren't you? Have you seen the trailer for Van Helsing yet? It's available here.
YAY!!! You'd win the prize MM, if I were actually offering one. ;) I use to love Night Court up until the last couple of years when it became one of least funny comedies ever. :( Makes me appreciate all the more when shows leave the air with dignity.

Yes, I am a Hugh fan. How could you tell? ;) I almost went to see Along Came Polly because I read the trialer was attached to it, but then discovered it was also made available online yesterday. Thanks for the link though. I'm sure I'll want to watch it numerous times. :)
