I'm sick....but I'm fighting the good fight

So I took the day off today to fight this cold that is setting up a siege of my body. I feel like I'm in a Western where the good guy and the bad guy are brawling and they both notice the revolver on the floor at the same time. They look at each other and then race for it....

That's me and this cold. I'm playing for keeps. So far, I've had about a gallon of OJ today, some Emergen-C, some Theraflu, some Zicam nasal spray, and a little Tylenol Cold. And I slept all day. Well most of it.

Tonight I viewed Dogs of War. A movie made in the early 80's about mercenaries who stage a coup in an African country. The movie was okay, but was perfect for how I'm feeling. I'm sad to be in bed right now, as Commando is on AMC. And that is an awesome movie. The best part of the movie is by far Christopher Walken. He's got those crazy eyes and he's terrific as a slightly off mercenary. Many thanks to Chuck for the suggestion. This movie must have given him a woody.

I'd post photos, but Blogger is giving me problems....

Matrix: Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last?
Sully: That's right, Matrix. You did.
Matrix: I lied.
