Dangblasted shoddy $20 Kroger flu shot!

(I call this look, "Every side is my good side, Mr. Oscar")

My fewer than five hours of sleep a night streak, refusal to recognize the merits of a Winter-appropriate sleeve length and tights-are-tantamount-to-trousers attitude have finally caught up with me.

Every sick symptom you can think of, I've got it and I've got it bad.

I tried to analyze through the fever and wit my way through the chills, but after an hour of writing the flattest and most flat-out tedious comparison between the ultimate work pump and the ultimate older man, I had no choice but to admit defeat and trade my Indian-style sit and MacBook Pro for a couch crash and "Entrapment" on HBO.

A girl's gotta rest for the three plus hours of real-time blogging during her absolute favorite event of the year, don't you know.

So unfortunately for me, I have to spend an entire Friday (and likely tomorrow, too) in oversized sweats drinking tea instead of coffee and wanting so very badly to exercise but knowing if I tried I'd end up teeth first into the treadmill belt.

But fortunately for you -or for those of you who come here because you actually enjoy me- the nice editor Em over at DC Goodwill Fashionista has chosen today as the day to post my 'Blog the Blogger' profile, so if you want to read my answers to her "soon-to-be Famous Five (plus one)" questions, click on over to her stylish slice of the Interwebs here and check it out.

sleep long and well, ditch the sleeveless dresses 'til Spring and give pants a try,
Johanna

Feel better soon, darling! Love the Montesquieu photo and your answers to the questions. I'd almost forgotten what a little athlete you were!

I swear, EVERYONE is sick right now! Feel better and just think of how great the Oscars will be on Sunday.

That dog is so perfect.

Loved your interview.

Feel better!

And don't beat yourself up about getting your flu shot at Kroeger. Like I told you, the flu vaccine missed this year. Everyone is sick in part because they didn't get the formula right. You did all you could, and there was nothing more you could do.

xoxo & that's all

I'm not usually a fan of dog apparel, but any outfit with cuff links gets an automatic pass. Serious scene points for Monte here. Get well!

Does he require that you assemble a little swag bag for him? "What, no Canyon Ranch gift certificate this year? My God this has been an annus horribilis for the Academy hasn't it? Oh well, pass the pâté then, love."

That Szeto dress on Audrey is really lovely, but if you could have *anything* that's what you'd choose???

it's refreshing to hear someone who loves fashion admit she's fairly new to the game. you always read about these girls who grew up "just knowing" they were meant for this business, but you seem like you had the opposite experience and just fell into it. interesting!

your dog is the cutest!

he's not an accessory said...

I can't stand people who dress up their dogs.

I hope Monte is being a good nurse to you :)

I just went back to work for the first time since I left 2 hours early on Valentine's Day last week...please take good care of yourself, Johanna! there are some nasty nasty bugs out there. I am on my second damn course of antibiotics.
Mwah for handsome Monty!
