we declare world contact day

i've been in a dayquil induced haze for at least a week now.
i feel disgusting.
my nose is running in my sleep.
every morning, i wake up to a snot covered pillow.
i have absolutely no appetite,
and have eaten nothing but christmas cookies
from the time i open my eyes until i pass out on the sofa.
i downloaded the carpenters 40/40 album right before i got sick
and have listened to it almost exclusively.
i can barely squeak out a whole sentence without coughing,
but i now know every word to 'calling occupants of interplanetary craft (the recognized anthem of world contact day')'.
i'm sad that i have never bothered to listen to the carpenters until now.
they are absolutely one on the best bands to exist, ever.
and that's not just the dayquil talking.

I am sorry to hear that you are sick. I hope you start feeling better soon. Have a Happy New Year.

Ah, so sad that you're feeling yucking. Here's hoping it goes away soon.

I agree 100% about the Carpenters. They were AMAZING. I love Karen's voice, and Richard had an incredible sense of musicality. I have the double CD of their greatest hits somewhere around here. I'm going to go dig out and play it. :-)

Ah, Karen Carpenter. Her voice is one of the most soothing things I know.

I'm sure this is beyond obvious, but if for some reason you don't have If I Were A Carpenter, it's worth a listen. It was my first real exposure to The Carpenters back in high school.

I hope you're feeling better...
