Back from the doctor

After waking up this morning with temp back up to 100 and worse cough.

Bronchitis, laryngitis, sinus infection trifecta. Yay me! I now have plenty of pills (and complete vocal rest!) and an estimate that I should start feeling better in 48-72 hours.

Back to the couch and the much-procrastinated British telly. Next on the menu: Desperate Romantics. I promise to laugh silently at the historical license! :-D

Any one of those alone is miserable. All three? You deserve two weeks in the Bahamas to recuperate.

Oooh, you really got hit. Poor thing. I hope you can manage to keep with the total vocal rest thing...

Total enough. I can whisper snarky comments at the irreverent biopicness. ;-D

One thing they certainly got right is that Gabriel and patience were never close acquaintances. They've also won my heart with some choice zingers from Lizzie. Usually fictionalized versions of her are uptight and uncomfortable (which isn't entirely off the mark) but completely lacking her wit.

Do you get to see Desperate Romantics in a format that could be, say, shared with me when you're done? Just checking... :-)

Good gravy, are you ever sick! But you knew that. ;-) Indulge your body and get it all well soon.

We've just got the first one right now, but once I've got all six, a copy wouldn't be difficult at all.

The license is indeed laughable, but they get major points from me for a certain level of snark in Lizzie. And if I weren't already going to be keeping a very sharp eye on Aidan Turner, I certainly would now. The physical arrangement of the "dorkiest of dorks" grin is about the only thing Gabriel has in common with Mitchell.

The handling of the Ruskins' marital woes is a bit melodramatic (as is the whole thing), but not as inappropriate as I expected.
