Sick Day

I am taking a sick day. Possibly two. My head feels like it is simultaneously underwater and in a vice.

And yet, all I can be is grateful for this diabolical cold (can it even be called that? Colds seem to be adorable, light little things easily relieved by a pack of tissues and NyQuil and THAT IS NOT WHAT I HAVE) because it’s had the decency to strike while I am at home. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories of being sick on the road, even experienced it myself, and I can say this: nothing compares to the warmth of your own bed, the familiarity of your local drugstore’s over-the-counter medicines, and your own DVR full of unwatched cooking programs.

So please forgive the lack of travel-related posts today (and possibly tomorrow), as I am going to spend my time doing this:

Yahr! I am not attractive!

Rand: Wow. That photo is great. All of your friends are going to be so glad you shared that online.

Me: You think so?

Rand: No. No one thinks that.

And with that, I’ll see you kids later this week. If you get bored in the meantime, you can always dip into the archives and check out my tips on what to do if you get sick while on vacation.

  • Okay, I'll admit: I really like how these came out. I need to get more adventurous with glazes, but I'm so digging this shape.
  • A sneak peek at the photoshoot that @hayleyyoungshotme did this morning at @majesticbaytheatres. We're going to be featured in an issue of Seattle Magazine early next year - about Seattle couples. Super excited. Details and more of shots of amazing hair as we get closer to the publication date.
  • Couldn't see what the barber was doing, but when he said "You want a design?" I replied, "HELL YES" and this happened. I'm delighted with the results.
  • Happy Halloween from the Joker and Harley Quinn, and to hell with the misogynistic manbabies out there.
  • First photo ever tagged of us on Facebook. Circa 12 years ago. Can we talk about how I've aged like an overripe piece of fruit left in the sun, but @randderuiter has only gotten hotter?
  • I call this look "I just ate a whole bunch of Violet Crumble and now I'm about to fall asleep from the sugar crash."
  • New personal slogan.
  • Do we want to leave Italy? No. Did we eat enough pasta to sustain us until next time? Also no.
  • The sky really is that blue. And the towers really are that slanted. #Bologna
  • Fried anchovies: accomplished.
