Sick at Home

Hi everyone, it's Maggie! Sorry for the extended absence. I just haven't been able to shake this cold. Turns out that I'm borderline anemic (damn flirtation with vegetarianism!), which, in addition to not enough sleep, is why I haven't been convalescing. Jeez. Is that how you spell that? Oh well. A couple of cheeseburgers and a Z-pack and I'll be good as new.

In the meantime, I've just been sitting on the couch watching the Food Network in a daze, hoping they'll inspire me to cook up some Campbell's beef vegetable soup. Hey everyone, how does Giada stay so skinny? and elfin? and annoying? I find it ingratiating that she pronounces every food according to the language it comes from. It makes me feel like I've been mispronouncing "gratin" all these years.

But enough about me! What are my ladies up to?

Oh, LU ANN STILL CAN'T GET OVER HER FUCKING HAIR. I turned off Paula Dean for this?? I could be learning how to make a mayonnaise-based meatloaf right now.

And again, Margo has something cryptic to say. "One way or another, anything can be undone." Sounds Margo is talking about more than hair, but if so, what could she be referring to? Is she going to try to ruin the wedding and "undo" Jack and Doris' engagement? Because yeah, then seriously no one is ever going to want you to be a bridesmaid again ever. Ohhh, Doris. I can't believe you were so foolish to ask in the first place.

Mags, I'm so sorry to hear you are under the weather. I didn't know you were dipping your toe into the vegetarian waters, but don't be discouraged by a lack of iron, just eat more broccoli! My mom, who's retired and not sick, spends most days watching the Food Network lineup, and I know that she wonders why Giada only cooks in cleavage baring tops.

I like how Margo didn't try to reassure Lu Ann that her hair was beautiful. I don't know what Margo is plotting, but if I were Doris, I would watch my back with one of my four eyes.

For what it's worth, my daughter is pectotarian -- is that the right word? Anyway, she decided she would eat fish and seafood, and that's kept her iron levels nice and healthy. Hasn't touched warm-blooded meat in 4 years, and healthy as can be, even through growth spurts (she's 16 now).

I know I sound like an old curmudgeon, but the kiddies like to read over my shoulder -- can we keep the language clean? OK, I am a stuffy old she-bear, I guess because in real time, I'd be Margo's deranged daughter, or at least her younger sister.

My husband hasn't read 3G in years, and now HE's reading over my shoulder: "WHAT have they done to Lu Ann?"

Clean language, coming up. I'll try to curse the A3G way: $%@&#! Just imagine me shaking my fists at the same time.
