Couch bonding

I went to the doctor on friday and I had bronchitis...
I used to get bronchitis as a kid all the time so it was no big surprise, but it definitely wasn't how I wanted to spend my weekend. It was BEAUTIFUL here in KC with temperatures in the 70's! (Which is never even heard of for November!) I could hear children's laughter outside and all my friends had facebook updated about how beautiful the weather was and how much fun everyone was having...and I was inside, under a blanket coughing and zoning out to TV....Here's what I did to pass the time....

* Watched movies. Bolt (I give it 5 stars!), Seven Pounds (4 stars...a little long), Kate & Leopold (3.5 stars...but a great movie to watch when sick!), Married Life (3 stars...good but not fantastics), Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2 stars...I still don't really understand...) and a few episodes of Californation (jury is still out. We're 8 episodes into the first season and I just don't know if massive amounts of drugs and sex can hold my attention... nothing really ever happens other than people getting high and getting lucky...)


* FINALLY watched Adventureland! Seriously, the Netflix envelope has been sitting on our entertainment center for a month and we haven't watched it. It definitely wasn't what I expected....not as funny...I realized I really can not stand Kristin Stewart... She can't act, she looks like she's stayed up for a month straight judging by the size of the bags under her eyes and she always has at least one scene where she isn't wearing any pants! ....but Ryan Reynolds looked pretty good in it!

* Ordered chinese food AND pizza....Spencer and I didn't feel like cooking all weekend....


* Tried Flan....and it was AWFUL! We picked up some Cozy Chack Flan when we went to Whole Foods thinking it looked pretty tasty.... we were very very wrong...The texture of the flan grossed us both out so much that we couldn't even pay attention to the flavor. Cozy Shack Flan...you get a big thumbs-down!


* The girls ate my loofah! In fact, they ate EVERYTHING they could get their paws on and I had to be on constant alert to pry things out of their mouths. Mia tried to eat a tube full of medicated lotion (we kept a close eye on her and she's fine) a sock, a few sticks, a dryer sheet... Betty tried to eat a LOT of sticks, pieces of her toy, a pen cap....and they both completely destroyed Spencers loofah and shredded up mine! All I can say is they are going to have a fun time going #2 for the next few days....


* Edited photos of Spencer's co-workers family. This one was my favorite!

* Lots and lots of sleeping!

* Homework, homework, homework...I have a presentation in class on friday about ALDI and Trader Joes so I spent a lot of time doing research this weekend.

Luckily today I am feeling MUCH better. Thank you Z-Pack! How was everyone else's weekend!? Anything exciting happen?

that's funny. whenever i'm sick i watched a crapload of movies too. haven't seen adbventureland yet. i do like kristen stewart but i see your point. she's not all that but she doesn't claim to be. the media hyped her up big time since twilight. i remember her in panic room with the boy haircut and amazing seizure acting skills.

Chinese AND pizza... mmmmmm...
And I really don't like Kristen Stewart... she just bothers me. I can't put my finger on why, but she makes me crazy.

KLaw said...

So glad you're feeling better! Kristen Stewart sucks- hate her. Ryan, yes :)

Our cat has been eating everything... weird right?

The SSS Sophisticate said...

Oh no! Hope you feel better soon! At least you got lots of rest and movie time in. Agreed, Kristen Stewart can't act...disappointing.

I stayed in for my weekend and made lesson plans. Basically I went to bed before old people go to bed. And it felt great!

That's disappointing about the flan...it does look like it would be tasty.

Glad you're feeling better! Adventureland didn't do it for me either.
