Spring is finally here! And with it, the Common Cold. I'm not really complaining. Last year I was off work for a whole week in February. This year's cold isn't nearly as bad. My brave friends even let me attend our weekly game night on Saturday, so I didn't miss out on any of the fun. I hope they all survive being exposed to my germs.
My Maltese friend baked these adorable and delicious figolli (which have nothing to do with figs). They are sort of double-layer cookies filled with a marzipan-like ground almond mixture.
Lambies! Those who were brave enough to eat the black icing got to show off their super-attractive blackened teeth to the rest of us.
We played Munchkin. The gender-specificity of this card might bug LL Cool Joe, but I did like getting a cute shoulder dragon. Who could ask for more in a fashion accessory?
I had a ticket to a classical piano concert this afternoon, but having woken up hacking and sneezing I decided that I'd better stay home. I was technically well enough to go, but my wheezing would have spoiled the performance for everyone else. Instead I went out and bought tissues with lotion and a bag of oranges.
I'm guessing I have another two or three days of this cold nonsense to get through, but I'll be back to my old self soon enough.
