I got me another lurgy. Looks like 2011 is planning to proceed on a “one lurgy per month” basis. (Hey, I could totally make that a new feature of the blog: Lurgy of the Month. Do you love it? No? Oh.)

Anyway, runny nose, inability to keep warm and a little something I think of as “Fire Throat” are the order of the day for the moment. Oh, and whining, obviously. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t whine incessantly every time I so much as sneezed. People talk about Man Flu, but trust me, until you’ve experienced an Amber Flu, you’ve NO IDEA how much can be made out of so little.

Because I’m feeling too sorry for myself to string together a proper post, here is a bulleted list of things I’ve done since my last post:

  • I got my hair cut. Then I had to get Terry to cut a bit off it again, because although the hairdresser DID manage to correct the original “lopsided head” problem, she created a whole new lopsided head problem in the process. So that was AWESOME.  I mean, I went into the salon thinking, “Amber, it’s time to get over this phobia you have about hairdressers. It’ll be FINE. Totally FINE. What could possibly go wrong?” Cut to Saturday night, and me standing in front of the mirror, all ready to go out and celebrate our friend Steven’s birthday, when I realise that one side of the front of my hair is significantly longer than the other. Terry dealt with it, though. I think I’m just going to get him to cut it from now on. No, really.*
  • I got sent some hair extensions to review. They’re the wrong colour, but the company are going to exchange them, assuming a match for my colour can be found. I’m ridiculously excited about this: I mean, at the very least, I’ll be able to use them to cover up any future lopsided cuts, no?
  • I launched a new Shoe Challenge over on Shoeperwoman (which also has a fancy new banner, courtesy of Terry). I already have over 50 members, and you can be one too, if you want to.
  • I discovered that Creme Egg Ice Cream exists. I could not be happier about this.
  • Did I mention the lurgy?

How’s everyone else’s week going?

(*I’m joking. Maybe.)
