drugs are great! no, not those drugs... medicine drugs... cough syrup drugs... oh yes... i was instructed to go to the pharmacy this morning instead of taking my test, as my cold had turned into a cough and the cough/cold was about 30 times worse this morning than it has been in the last week... ugh. so, i went to the pharmacy and the lady there was so so so so very helpful... all i had to do was explain [thank god i speak some italian] that i had a stuffy head and that i had a very deep cough... oh, did she ever hook me up! i got some great decongestant - i can't remember what it's called, but sudafed's got nothing on this baby... - and a really great cough syrup called something like 'bretik' - woooooo... i took the smallest dose recommended, as i had no idea what the stuff would do to me, and it flat out knocked me out for 6 1/2 hours straight! actually, it's been about 8 or so hours since i took it and i still feel funky... i just hope that i can get good work done while i'm still doped up... we'll see, i guess.
on to other business: it is confirmed... we are going to see the kings of convenience on sunday night - halloween - at the renzo piano auditorium - auditorium parco della musica - in the eternal city... whooptie woo! they are a mighty mighty good band, the tickets are cheap, and the building's pretty nifty... all in all, i'd say that sunday night is, ummmm, going to rock. yes, my friends, i predict that we will all have a smashing time come this sunday!
oh, and on friday night i will be going bowling in rome... assuming that this cough-thingy goes away... i'm so completely stoked [yeah, that's right. i said 'stoked']. i will be exercising my right to have the most stupid fun possible in rome. beer [again, assuming that i am feeling better] and bowling. how much more 'americana' could one get?
to wrap this baby up, i have a question to pose to the world via blog... i am asking this question because i saw a girl with the hairiest arms i have ever laid eyes upon [like robin-williams-hairy except for on a really skinny, fairly attractive young lady...] on the subway yesterday, and a friend of mine told me that she was told by a friend of her's [a friend who told a friend who told a friend... and so on] that there's something 'they' say about girls with hairy arms... of course, he felt that it would be inappropriate to share what it is, exactly, that 'they' say, so i ask you good people... what exactly is it that 'they' say about girls with hairy arms?
