The Universe Is Expanding

I woke up this morning with a sore throat, which was very distressing to me, considering the fact that I spent most of December with the plague.

Previously I'd tried the Chinese food/Marx Brothers cure and the Preston Sturges/Coen Brothers/hot soup cure. I'm going to try to take this scratchy throat in stride and not worry too much about it, and since I don't have a valid driver's license right now, I wouldn't be going to a milonga tonight anyway. So now I've decided to try the bacon/Annie Hall cure.

For some reason, having a plate of bacon and watching Woody Allen at his finest seems like something that might work this time.

Plus, it's kind of a Valentine's Day movie in parts:

After that it got pretty late, and we both had to go, but it was great seeing Annie again. I... I realized what a terrific person she was, and... and how much fun it was just knowing her; and I... I, I thought of that old joke, y'know, the, this... this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, "Doc, uh, my brother's crazy; he thinks he's a chicken." And, uh, the doctor says, "Well, why don't you turn him in?" The guy says, "I would, but I need the eggs." Well, I guess that's pretty much now how I feel about relationships; y'know, they're totally irrational, and crazy, and absurd, and... but, uh, I guess we keep goin' through it because, uh, most of us... need the eggs.

Oh NO, TB. Not the Plague again!!

And, uh, "suspended license"...????

I know! I can't believe it! I am hoping this is a mini-plague. Lots of people at work have been sick so I don't even know who to be mad at this time.

And the bacon/Woody Allen cure didn't work either, although that scene I posted cracks me up.

I forgot to renew my license and found out the hard way at the airport last week. *sigh*

I guess it's a testament to public transportation that I don't need to drive much anymore made me forget that I even had a license. But I need to fix that asap.

If the universe is expanding it could help the traffic situation, and with parking.

It sure could because the parking in Seattle is just as bad as here in SF!
