Has anyone else noticed that Alton Brown has lost a lot of weight?
Does anyone else get annoyed on real estate shows when everyone has to have granite in the kitchen, even in the cheapest level of the local market?
Does anyone else desperately need a haircut?
Am I the only person who wants a maid?
Is anyone else freaking out about getting sick the week of a marathon?
Oh, I know the answer to the last one. The answer is yes. Out of the 5500+ people registered in the Des Moines marathon this weekend, I bet about 80% of them are concerned. My co-worker in crime John is sick and went to the doctor today. So I know I'm not alone. He says he can't breathe well enough to run. That's gonna suck come Sunday morning. No pun intended.
Got an email (a viral email?) today that said you could stay healthy during the flu season by swabbing your nostrils with salt water and blowing your nose a lot. Also, gargle with salt water.
Even in the grip of adult-onset strep throat last February, in which I thought for sure I was going to die and be happy about it, I wouldn't gargle with salt water. I would rather gargle with a cat in my throat.
But the salt water up the nose? I'm totally into that. I do it every time I swim. Oh wait, that's not salt water. Well, sure and chlorine water just has to be good for you, right?
