To add to my highly unsuccessful Family Guy pitch, I have a new idea (this time, a documentary) that I'm keeping in a safe mental hiding place, in hopes that someday it will be brought to life or YouTube.
The idea: a documentary that takes you into the homes of people suffering from severe colds or the flu and discovering what kind of ensembles they put together.
Think about it: when you're achy and whiny and fighting a scorching fever, style is a non-issue. You bust out the old, tattered guns and get ready for battle. The fleece emblazoned with the company logo that you won as a door prize from the office party. The red sweats with a half dollar-sized hole in the crotchetal region and death-grip elastic on the ankles. The Isotoner skid-free socks. For the duration of your body's internal war, these pieces become your uniform, your second skin.
I spent a good chunk of the past week in this hot little number.
Christmas in March. Wheeee.
Thankfully, I'm starting to feel like a normal human being again. I'm ready to push these threads to the way bottom of the hamper and rejoin society. Sugared Cinema will return next Friday and I have to admit, I'm a bit partial to next week's installment. A dear friend not only passed along a spectacular recipe (a clone of a highly drooled-over baked good from a very well-known NYC bakery) but will also be featured in the "cinema" portion of the post. Big stuff! I'm super stoked.
Have a great weekend, everyone. I wanted to leave you with an article linking beer to a healthy immune system but couldn't find such evidence. Yet.Tweet
