It's the weekend!  I usually love to participate in a blog hop on Saturdays, but it wasn't meant to be today as this is the very first moment I've been on a computer all day.  A computer.  Not my computer, mind you.  Let me explain.  My wonderful, superfun, don't-see-her-nearly-enough sister is visiting this weekend from Chicago and staying at my parents' house.  I had a duathlon on the other side of the state this morning, but I hightailed it out of there ASAP so I wouldn't miss one single moment of time with my brother and sister- it's so rare for us to all be together.  I made a conscious decision NOT to bring my computer.  "I won't have a second to spare!"  "I'll be basking in the sunshine that is sibling love and laughter!"

Except I seem to have the stomach flu.

So while everybody is downstairs giggling, chatting, and telling hilarious jokes I will never be privy to,  I'm quarantined to my childhood bedroom.  And bathroom.  To hurl.

Luckily, I am a pity-party planner extraoridinaire.  And after a bit of cajoling I convinced my germaphobe brother to let me use his laptop, so I can conjure up some sympathy from my lovely readers (I am also a subtle hint-dropper extraordinaire)!  I will trade you one cute commercial for some sympathy.  Fair?  Awesome.  Here it is:

Oh, no Jules - It's Monday - two days later, and not a pitier has come to the party.. . .well they came, but those pitier party comers suck at giving comments. .. trust me, i know!

You poor, poor, poor, poor, poor, poor, baby. I hope you have been eating what ever the heck you want, and refusing to clean up after yourself. i hope that you are no longer hurling all over. Sorry you had to miss time out with your siblings, but hearing them giggle downstairs is better than not hearing them at all. Well maybe not, but I bet they gave you some good sympathy love. Feel Better!!! Hurl till you Whirl! (whatever that means)!

Nicki! Thank you for the sympathy! Staying in bed reading and blogging just wasn't as luxurious as I'd dreamed about when I was honking ever 5 minutes! But your pity and well-wishes are taking me from 90% to 100% so thank you Friend!!!
