I can't read. I can't write. The teacher won't let me talk and I'm tired of fingerpainting[More:] I've had a chest cold all week. Last night it kept me awakw. When I don't get sleep, I get depressed, so I went and watch late night reruns. Murphy Brown and Designing Women. Huge hair and scenery chewing. Now, I'm all tired, but all that's on is Leave It To Beaver and it's too cold to go on the porch.
Ugh, lingering chest colds are the worst. My cure is usually hot tea with lemon, honey, and brandy (or recently, bourbon, cause I'm cheap).

Speaking of Designing Women, when the hell is that show going to come out on DVD? Also, the rest of Murphy Brown? They put out season one of that show like a year ago.

First things first, BoPo. We need more than the first two seasons of Barney Miller before anything else.

Awww, poor jon. Can you get a pseudoephedrine cough medicine OTC? That works for me (but is hard to get in many parts of the Western world now, unfortunately). At night, though, hot toddies (rum or brandy, a wee dab of butter, a squeeze of lemon juice and hot water) and breathing steam (run the shower really hot for a few minutes if your bathroom's small, otherwise breathe deeply with a towel over your head, over a dish of boiling water with eucalyptus oil or Vicks).

Weed helps me sleep - ages (years, it's lasted) ago we made a jar of green dragon and it's perfect to add to a hot toddy when you're ill and can't sleep.

And - usenet, my friend!

Wait a minute, you have TWO seasons of Barney Miller on DVD, while there aren't ANY seasons of Designing Women out?

Unfair! UNFAIR!!!

jonmc, I must say I have some slight resentment that you convinced me to download MASH, just for those episodes you recommended. Dude, it's a 6 GB download.

M*A*S*H (note correct spelling) is worth way more than 6GB, so stop whining ;-)
