I feel like ass. Total ass. I am running 102 fever, my parents are no longer coming, and my room smells like syrup.

I don't know why my room smells like syrup, I am thinking because I keep sweating when my fever breaks. I don't like the smell of syrup.

I also have a stellar appetite. That means I won't even lose a few lbs with this deathly illness. And I say "deathly" because I keep thinking of Britney Murphy dying after complaining of "flu like symptoms."

Needless to say, I have gotten myself pretty worked up. I might die.

The only positive things are the following:

1) Iddy and Pa are in Austin and taking care of my bebes.

2) I have a new kick ass vacuum cleaner, that I am too sick to use right now, so that isn't really positive. Is it?

3) Robert Pattinson is walking the same earth that I am. Looking up at the same stars. Sigh.

4) There is a "First 48" marathon on. I love a good homicide investigation.

That is all I can think of right now. Not a lot of positive, but I know that Jesus would like me to at least try. Try I did. Because I am sweet and kind like that. And shockingly pretty.

Seriously, my bed smells really weird. Kind of like barbecue sauce. You know when you smell something that smells kind of good. But it shouldn't smell like what you are smelling because you know for a fact that what you are smelling should not be there.

That is kind of how I feel right now. Coco has not been eating pancakes, waffles OR ribs in bed. Promise. Gross. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

OK, I am going to lay here and cry some more. Poor pitiful Coco.

But you know what? If this is the most terrible thing that has happened to me in a loooonnnnngggggg time......then I am doing pretty okay.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

ta-ta for now.

Hope you feel better! Have you eaten anything like syrup or something with maple in it lately? I promise, after I eat maple and brown sugar oatmeal, everything smells like syrup. It follows me. My sweat smells like it... and other people can smell it too, so I am not crazy. So maybe that is it. And, this has only started happening within the past couple of years... so strange. I try not to eat it anymore because it kinda freaks me out.

Have a Merry Christmas in spite of the sickness... do it for Baby Jesus!

Poor CoCo! So sorry that you are sick over the holiday. We are SNOWED IN. 14 inches of snow here in OKIE land which NEVER happens. We can't be with our families on Chrismtas so I am a little bummed too.

Get Well!

Wishing you a speedy recovery!!

OK...It's two days after you posted this and I'm praying that you're feeling better. Am also thinking, that if you haven't done it already, it MIGHT be worth expending the energy to put yourself in a hot bath (that always makes me feel better) and change those sheets!!! Seriously,I'm SO sorry that this has hit you at Christmas (or really at ALL for that matter!)

Syrup and bbq? GAG.
You sure you're not preg? I've heard you smell weird things. You've jinxed yourself a few times, so it's bound to happen at some point.
Merry Christmas anyway!
Hope you feel better soon, Cocohead.
