Local...

..... I spent most of yesterday sitting on the couch exercising my sneezing muscles and watching the Olympics on NBC while surrounded by huge piles of damp tissues.... it was not a pretty sight, I assure you.......... but I swear, I watched the women's 30K cross country and was absolutely amazed.... it was a honest to goodness "photo finish"....

.... and I even found myself - albeit in a Sudafed clouded haze - completely digging the women's pursuit skating team finals.... all dolled up in those crazy, skin-tight body suits with bulging thighs and mirrored sunglasses.... and then to watch them glide around the rink in unison?... it was surreal.... all I could think of was the sensation of watching geese in flight..... at one point between body-rocking sneezes I even caught myself gently swaying from left to right.... sorta like a charmed King Cobra in one of those 50's Stewart Granger flicks where he's marching through some African jungle in search of treasure... Sudafed and team skating should not be mixed, folks.... and when that German lady fell and "swam" across the finish line?.... good lord, I could hardly believe my eyes..... hey, it's no wonder that they make crystal meth out of Sudafed.....

.... anyway, I do seem to be feeling a bit better today..... which is good since today seems to be fully booked.....

... one of the interesting side effects of watching the Olympics has been that we've tuned to our "local" NBC station to catch the programming.... and as such, we've been bombarded by thousands of advertisements that we normally never catch - local advertisements - ranging from Billy Bob's Contracting Company, to new restaurants that we'd never even heard of....

.... so today we're off to lunch at a new French restaurant in Cleveland, TN called "Le Place".... and then off to the movies to catch a matinee of "The Werewolf".......

..... I plan on leaving a trail of soggy tissues to and from both establishments.... hey, having a cold can be the perfect example of Mind over Matter, you know?..... if you don't mind?..... then it doesn't matter......

Bullshit So Far

You sure they don't just have French Dressing on the menu? It is Cleveland, after all.....

Mucus is your friend. Wait - no, it isn't.
