A couple of slobs

It's half term and it's raining. T goes off to work and I slob around in bed til 10.30. My excuse is that J woke us up at 1am feeling sick and promptly fell asleep again leaving me restless for the rest of the night. J finally surfaces aroud 12.30 and we order a delivery of BOGOF pizza to be watched in front of an early episode of Greys Anatomy on DVD. Pizza is definitely on my 'not advisable to eat' list so I'll see how sick I feel after!
With Hugh Laurie and House MD episodes on the daily must watch list, and now a borrowed Greys Anatomy while we wait for House Series 6 from Amazon, what is this fascination with medical dramas? On a number of occasions during the 'diagnosis' we watch an actor throw up blood or turn yellow and we shout 'liver failure' at the screen!

5.30pm Managed 1/3 of the pizza at lunch with no ill effects but had to make a salad of couscous, avocado, cucumber and tomato to balance it out! J ate 1 and 1/2 pizzas before exploding.
I'd joined the Macmillan forum a while back but have switched allegiance to Cancer Research. The Macmillan one had become either a debate between the admin people and a group of posters who wanted to be allowed to name and shame hospitals and consultants or a sad roll of people who had died. Too depressing.
