Ahhh (sigh of relief)

Finally, everything is sorta back to normal minus a cough. Not only am I enjoying the departure of the nastiest bug I've had in years, but I'm enjoying the post-flu immunity. Since everyone seems to have what I just had, I don't have to worry about getting sick AT ALL. It's like right after you get the chicken pox and you're happy your immune system has just elected Arnold Schwarzenegger as its governor and is kicking butt. But I digress...

In other news, I finally caved and watched half an episode of Everwood. I admit I was sucked in by the wedding scene and only until then did I realize too late that it was Everwood. I can see how the drama would get old after a few seasons of the same stuff over and over (like Dawson's Creek), but in all honesty, I enjoyed this episode very much. Some neat things were, first of all, the adults were real characters with real issues. It wasn't just the teens in the foreground with their parents being annoying. That helped give the show a "real" feeling. Also, I really liked how some relationships worked out while others didn't. Usually I'd expect everyone to be all angsty and depressed. And I liked how in the end, together or not, everyone was enjoying a last slow dance together in each other's embrace to Etta James' At Last. That song is seriously my weak spot. Hint: don't ever play it when I'm around, especially if I'm pining after you. The results could be disastrous.

Anyways, I should sleep now. Gotta prepare everything before I leave. I can't wait until I'm home!
