Tousssin' and tournin'


Last night I got the teensiest amount of sleep because my apt is FREEZING cold as the heat is controlled for the whole immeuble and, therefore, we will be getting ours turned on in, oh, about quarter to never. I just could not get warm and if I'm cold, I can't sleep. Especially cold feet are the worst(no, not that kind of cold feet!) Then later, I found myself touss-ing up a storm for some odd reason. Odd because I've been sicky, but more the cold/sore throat kind of sicky with a minimum amount of coughing. Anyway, Roomie#1 and I were having an impromptu coughing contest at 2 AM as she is sick like me(prob caught it from me, actually) plus she has the gastro(yikes.) Sidenote: could the Frenchies be any more dramatic about being sick? Coughy McCougherson actually said she was going to go to the hospital because she had marre of being sick. I mean, yeah it sucks being sick, espec a gastro, but you have a bajillon medicaments and you just have to get it out of your system. And, ps, the attrap-ing froid business that they say could not be any more ABSURD.

Anyhoo, when I was up for the coughing sing along, I suddenly realized kitty was nowhere to be found. She was not at my side, at my feet or in any of her normal corners. So, I checked under the bed and in her kitty house(aka carrier) and still no Sienna. Well, much to my amusement, when I looked at my armoire, this is what I saw:

So cute!

Tell me about it! I have tried to explain to my french copines about germs and bacteria and viruses, and how none of those things have anything to do with COLD AIR and wearing a scarf when it dips below 82 degrees is overkill...

They remain totally convinced..

P.S., meanwhile 8 out of 10 think it's no big deal when there's no sink in the WC.

Seems some elementary education in virus prevention is in order.

JS-Yeah, I don't even bother telling the frenchies anymore because they're so stubborn in their ways that they won't even hear it.

N-Seriously!

C-The Maxinator and Roomie#1 should be friends!

I'm late in the game here, but I'll cheer you on in this department: what is the DEAL with the attraper froid crap?! I'm so tired of the French people's fascination with courants d'air... No, THAT'S not going to get you sick, but the germs will if you don't wash your hands, that's for sure! No one listens to me either...
