Hi all. I'm still sicky, even took today off to prevent spreading my yuckies around the office, and get some sleep. I basically slept all day which was much needed. If I'm feeling like crap tomorrow I'll be hitting up the doctors. I'm slightly scared I have bronchitis or something since I have such a deep cough, even coughed up a lil blood today -- yuck! But I'm a trooper, so I'm hanging in there.
The Anti Hodge Bonanza is getting closer and closer. It's going to be the weekend of June 28th. Veronica and Wullie get to Boston on Thursday the 26th from Scotland, and then most of the others get in on Friday and stay thru the weekend. Thus far, the master plan is most people arrive on Friday, we have festivities and touristy stuff on Saturday afternoon, including a duck tour! We commissioned Ry Ry to create some shirts for us, so we can be one obnoxious group on the tour. Then Saturday night we're going to have a big dinner/party at a place to be determined -- if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know, I think it's my job to figure it out. I think we'll need to rent out a room at a restaurant. Then we'll all sleep off all the champagne that Wullie promises to buy us and head to Sherril's house in Salem for a cookout on Sunday. The count of people is about 25-30 -- which is pretty amazing since a bunch of them are flying in from the West Coast.
I also checked in with an editor I know at the Boston Globe to see if she knew if anyone would be interested in covering our bonanza - I think it's a good feel good story for the Sunday paper or something. She said once I have the official details to tell her and she can pass the word along.
So mark your calendars because June 28th is a big party! Oh and if you didn't have the hodge but may have fought some other cancer and want to partake, let me know, the more the merrier! I know that Baldylocks is going to try and come and she had Leukemia, so bring on the cancer fighters :)
Other than that not much is going on. I've got the windows open right now and am trying to enjoy some fresh air and feel better - it's actually helping a lot. This weekend is Easter weekend. I'm not super religious or anything, but there might be a small family brunch or something, so I might go visit my parents -- but I'll be leaving all my valuables in fancytown. Afterall, my dog misses me... yeah totally random (well sort of) but when I talk to my parents I eventually make them put me on speakerphone so I can saw hi to my dog, and he freaks out now and barks at the phone, it's pretty awesome, he misses me. Oh and that reminds me, I need to find him a new Easter lamb for his lamb collection :)
I hope you're all doing fabulous and drinking lots of vitamin C to keep the sickies at bay.
