Sick as a Dog (woof)

What's Lovely for January 22, 2010: Looking at lovely pictures while stuck at home with the constant, enraging sniffles.

Today I stayed home sick. Nothing terrible, but just sick.

I wish I can say that this accurately portrays me as I am now, but this drawing actually makes me look loads more ravishing than in real life.

Doesn't this photo remind you of warm sunshine, endlessly calm skies, and carefree days? At least it does for me; it's just a lovely photo of escapism.


Does anyone have any other lovely photos or pictures or drawings or videos or anything that they'd like to share with me?

My friend Michelle has! While nursing my killer sinuses with various TV shows (Pushing Daisies, 30rock, Community, etc.) and various youtube videos, I got a random text from her today containing this photo.

It might not seem much, but it's where we took a couple of "running" pictures this past spring at her school campus. It really is renowned for being lovely during the springtime...

We really are a couple o' cool cats, we're so cool we're in our own club. The "Look a little ridiculous while running down walkways" club. You should join.

Oh, springtime. How so very far away you are. At least my birthday's coming up soon. :)

Oh, btw, your question on my rain pic - it was raining that day, but if I can remember correctly I think we added a rain effect to make it stand out better.

Hugs,

Bug
