The Doldrums...

It's cold outside and warm inside & thoughts meander through my head without actually making it out for public consumption. And in fact, one might argue that there aren't really thoughts inside my head at all at the moment. It would probably be a good idea to just turn this computer off & head for bed. After all, Dr. M is sacked out on the futon because he claims that I gave him my cold (which is mostly gone - thanks for all the good wishes). Only he has the manflu & it will be much worse than what I had. In case you haven't seen it, this video explains:




Anyway, I thought I'd just share my facebook status from tonight & let you guys be just as grossed out as my facebook friends. You're welcome.

  1. I never have figured out why my husband had to languish on the sofa or recliner when he has the flu. (Like, why can't you just go to bed if you feel so fricking bad?) OMG! I never thought about the manflu!!! Thanks for enlightening me. I had no idea.

    BTW: Hope the guy is better soon. Given your cooking ability, I would recommend canned soup.

  2. I am going to feel guilty if I wasn't supposed to laugh all the way through this video. I am sorry...maybe I just needed a real good laugh.

  4. This made me laugh very loudly all the way through. And then I read your dinner...

    And I laughed even more. Yes, thank you indeed. I hope that your husband gets well soon before you starve to death. Wonderful post today.

    (BUt I AM glad you are better)

  5. Ha! I knew it! I knew Manflu was serious, life threatening even, and now this documentary proves it. Even without sub-titles you could tell how much anguish the poor man was in. I hope he doesn't relapse. ;)

  6. We need a marathon for manflu. This tragic pestilence must end.

  7. At first glance I thought this was satire, but I can see now that I was completely wrong. I was especially concerned with his symptom of a red nose. Scary. Very scary!

    Now if you want Mike to get up a cook for you, I'd make him what you made yourself. Don't change a thing...especially the raisin garnish atop the runny egg.

    Yum.

  8. Poor you, starving away. We've had it here too:)
    The video is hilarious, what a great satire!

  9. I'm curious as to why, exactly, you tossed the raisins in. What did you think they would bring to the dish that you perceived was lacking up to that point?

  10. I've always put raisins in my grits 'n eggs - and I believe the blame for that little culinary peculiarity can be blamed directly on my father. But I don't recommend doing it with cheesy grits - blech!

  11. Omigod! Don't tell the manflu is back. I live in terror of the plague that is manflu. If it weren't for all the sports on television, I don't think a man could ever survive it.

  12. At first I couldn`t even understand what he was saying, and then I KNEW that he was hardly able to talk. That poor man. He was probably also in sick-bed when his wife had the children.
    Manflu, of course, no woman ever gets it. Very interesting, this.
    I love raisins, too.

  13. So he's manguishing?

    Ewwwwwwww! Eggs.

  14. To each his own runny-egg grits and raisins. LOL!

  15. Ah yes, we are familiar with this horrid disease. Hilarious!

  16. Omgosh. Too funny, thank goodness my hubby has only had that a few times. We need a vaccine for it. LOL

  17. Manflu? Really? Didn't have a clue. When they get it, is that when they crawl into their mancave?

    I am trying to decide whether I'd rather cope with manflu or raisins in eggs. When I've decided, I'll let you know!
