Cabin Fever with Bourdain

My left eye keeps watering. My sinus' are clogged up. My nose is bright red and chapped from wiping and blowing. I hear echoing when I speak. I keep sneezing. All signs of a cold.

It started last Monday. I woke up feeling somewhat down and trodden.

I made a ridiculous decision. I went snowshoeing that night. I got sicker. By Thursday I was not getting better, in fact my cold was getting worse. Not the best of feelings. Friday morning I woke up and decided staying home in bed would be to my advantage.

I needed my best armor to combat this cold--trust me I was ready to fight this thing off.

I went to the grocery store, bought tons of fruit

The last few days have consisted of me doing the same activities.

Sleep. Eat grapefruit. Drink water. Watch Anthony Bourdain. Read. Sleep. Eat grapefruit...oh you get the picture.

Needless to say, it's not been too exciting these past few days. I would say my saving grace was Mr. Bourdain. Any of you who know me well know that I absolutely love watching his show on The Travel Channel. I might go as far as saying I have a bit of a crush on Mr. Bourdain. Trust me he is no hottie. It is his crass, dry sense of humor, honest personality that attracts me to him and his show. I am a bit obsessed. He travels to far off exotic locations eating amazing cuisine and lets us into the culture along with his smart@#$ comments.

By Saturday night I had major cabin fever. I am always on the go and am not usually home. So to stay home since Thursday night was killing me. Even Mr. Bourdain was not doing it for me anymore.

Luckily there was a friends birthday party to get me out of the house.

Thank goodness I am on the mend now and thank goodness I had some good company.

Thanks Bourdain.


  1. Get well, sickie! I've never heard of Mr. Bordain, but you have good taste--I'll check him out. Miss you.

  2. Your right. He is no hottie.
    But I watched a clip of him at the French Laundry and think I could easily get into that show!

    Get well soon!!!

  3. Augh! I meant "You're right." Not "your right." Perdon!
