Random Thoughts and Musings : Head Cold Edition

It is official- I am sick. I have a crappy head cold and the underneath of my nose is rubbed raw from the constant blowing. The best thing I have found to do is use Afrin nasal spray and Alka Seltzer cold medicine. Otherwise, I just need to sit on my butt and wait for it to go away. Any remedies you have that can help?

I just got the new Guns'N'Roses CD and I dig it. Yes, I know I had to wait like 17 years for it, but I don't care. Axl is batsh*t crazy, and I miss Slash, but it sounds killer. There aren't frontmen out there like that anymore- charisma and insanity are a heck of a mix. Mick Jagger, James Hetfield, David Lee Roth, Rob Halford, and... Axl Rose! LOL. Anyone have an opinion on it?

In comic book news, I have cut back to four titles in January. Yep, you heard me right. We are tightening our belts, so for the near future, I will have to change my focus and review old stuff. That is, if I ever start reviewing stuff again! It is weird to sit here, knowing that I am cutting back so far, but it is a fact of life. I kept The Boys, 100 Bullets, Wonder Woman, and JSA. I also ordered Final Crisis #7. For the first time in many years I won't be getting any Marvel.

On that note, I am going to go sit and try and recover from this mess of a cold. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

sorry to hear your sick... :(


I've had to cut back myself although not as much as you.

Finally had it with She-Hulk huh?

Oh well, if you really missed anything you can always read it at the bookstore. I do that all the time.

Happy Turkey Day

Being sick is crappy. To remedy your sore nose I recommend using vaseline or moisturiser. Apply it nigh on constantly and it should help with the dryness. Nivea is a really good moisturiser.
Those tissue with moisturiser in really do help too.
And drink lots of water cos you'll be dehydrated.

Glad to hear the new G'N'R CD is good, I heard snippets on the radio and was thinking about getting it, it sounded fairly good.

Hope you get better soon.

Swinebread- I hated dropping She-Hulk! My cuts were so extensive though that I only got to keep four books. Yikes! I have got to win the lottery SOON!

Happy late Turkey Day back to you!

Saranga, I followed your advice and got some vaseline and it helped. My nose is still so ouchy, but I know it would be way worse if I wouldn't have used it. I drank tons of gatorade too!

Take care!
