I live in the house that sick built


I don't know about you guys, but I can't think of a more perfect way to spend the holidays than to cozy up to a nice warm box of tissues, watch endless hours of daytime television and drown in a sea of your own phlegm. In case you haven't already guess, I am sick. And just to prove that Murphy's law should be permanently changed to Mel's law, the sickness began on my birthday and caused me to miss the last night out with my school chums, the House of Cool Christmas party AND my own birthday buffet extravaganza at Mandarin.
But, enough complaining. I've decided to immortalize my crappy holidays by doing this self portrait. And just so you know, that is EXACTLY how I've looked for the past four days. I had to strategical position myself in order to cover the enormous hole in the crotch of my pajama pants.
Seasons Greetings everybodies!

You've got a hole in your pj pants too?! Man, same! Why don't girls just give them up already and get new ones, lol, it's ridiculous!

Anyways, feel better, there's still the REAL Christmas (party) and New Years (party) to look forward to

Happy Sucky Birthday Mel--if I knew you better I'd buy you new jammies; though I know they wouldn't feel the same...

When you feel better I'd love to trade you a superhero/DC comics drawing--those were wicked cool. Insane. Joker, Black Canary!? Come ON!! Tell me your preference (Plastic Man? Luke Cage?)astrobug@hotmail.com
