I'm sick and tired of talking about how sick and tired I get. I'm really trying to work through this one. My roommate is getting over a bug. I'm just starting. And it's really bugging me. Headache, sore throat, fever, aches, pains. But I'm loading up on everything good.
I've been trying to detox from coffee. This week I'm down to a small cup of 3/4 decaf and 1/4 regular. I'm ready to be completely off the addiction. But the headaches are just too much to torture myself with. So I have the little bit of caffeine when my headaches get to a point where I can't look at the light. It kinda interferes with my driving.
I was hunched over with dry heaves this morning. Nice huh? I didn't have anything in my stomach to hack up. Instead, I nearly broke blood vessels in my eyes.
I'm off to a focus group in Beverly Hills. Ugh. It was supposed to be in Santa Monica - a place I know very well. But now I have to read directions and all that jazz. Sure I've been to BH 90210 but I don't spend enough time there to really know my way around. Turns out it's about the same distance from here that Santa Monica is.
I love focus groups. I did one last year too. You know, you sit in a room, talk about a product, give your opinion and get paid cash out the door. Bonus! Trip money.
I just hope to be back in time for SURVIVOR. I don't know how to set my VCR to record. By the way - thanks for the reminder DiAnne. I can always count on you to remember the little (important) details.
Loading up on Zinc-Echinacea lozenges, Vitamin C, Organic Chicken Soup (y-u-m), lots of water and a rip-roaring positive attitude. Ha! Even I can't pull that off with a straight face. I'm whiny and cranky. It ought to be interesting, spending two hours locked in a room with total strangers tonight.
Now I know why they call it a focus group - To get through it, I need to keep focus on the CASH!
