Sick

Sorry for the abruptness of not finishing the blog yesterday. I have come down with some awful bug and am barely functional at this point. I am hopeful that everything will be back to normal tomorrow. I miss all of you. Come bring me soup please. Potato bacon would be nice.

Get well soon ol' chip chap.

montance said...

Get better soon Enty... I am too far away to bring you soup :(

RocketQueen said...

Vegetable soup might be better for you :) I recommend a spicy soup, like Tom Yum!

hunter said...

Oh how awful...rest, drink gingerale and watch bad daytime TV. That's the only good thing about being sick..total excuse for trashy guilty pleasures. Feel better soon.

Jennifer said...

Oh no poor Enty! I hope it's not the nasty stomach bug going around. Feel better!!

Christine said...

Try Cold Snap. I never believed it worked until I tried it out of desperation. It's a miracle! Feel better soon. xo

Lady J said...

Get plenty of rest! Hope u feel better soon!

bmh said...

chicken and veg broth with lots of garlic (potato and bacon optional extras :) ) stress can always contribute to illness - maybe your working too hard! get well soon honey

Merlin D. Bear said...

Feel better soon, Enty!

Nicole said...

Sorry you're sick Enty! I hope your mom can bring some soup down to the basement for you. Feel better soon. You'll be missed today!

Julie said...

feel better Enty!!! i think i have the same bug! 3 days of fever, my first night it spiked to 106 :( i should have gone to the ER, but I figured "oh, i'll just tell my dialysis nurse tomorrow"

yeah, woops.

I wonder if you can make bacon stock/broth and if that would make you feel better <3

linnea said...

If I were you, I would drill a small hole in the kitchen wall and your basement, run a hose through it and just have your mum pour soup straight into your room.

My childhood dream, right there.

Astrid said...

Pho and lots of hot lemonade( 1/2 a lemon, teaspoon of sugar and boiling water) will get you back to gossiping in no time. Feel better soon!Here is a little virtual soup for you: http://midtownlunch.com/2011/03/15/cha-pa%E2%80%99s-may-have-the-best-ph%E1%BB%9F-in-midtown/#more-27633

How about a Hot Toddy? ;)

MISCH said...

I still have some potato leek from last nights dinner....it is yummy, will that do ?

Rod said...

Feel better soon!

Maja. With a J. said...

Aw, I hope you feel better soon!

cornpuddin said...

I hope you get well soon! If I were in LA instead of NYC I would bring you chicken noodle soup in exchange for some answers to blind items--even if you didn't give me answers I would still bring soup!

MontanaMarriott said...

Enty, hope you feel better, don't stress, we will be here waiting.

CaliGirlinVA said...

If you have a fever over 100, bodyaches, cough, etc... Go get swabbed for the flu because Tamiflu is awesome and decreases length and severity of the flu. If you have the icky stomach bug going around, meds for nausea would help. You only have 48 hours to start Tamiflu....GO!

JoElla said...

Yes, CaliGirlinVA I agree!

Also stay hydrated, protect your kidneys!

Get well soon Enty!

califblondy said...

And for the bad news, the bug we've had going round and round the office lasts a LONG time. I'm on day 9 and still don't feel 100%. Same for the co-workers. The coughing, sneezing, aching, and red noses are real ugly.

Enty, the good news is it's good for dropping a few pounds. Well, that is if you stay away from potato bacon soup.

Butterfly said...

Poor Enty! I hope you feel better soon.

Miss X said...

I'm so sorry! Feel better soon. Get some rest and drink plenty of liquids.

Stacey Charter said...

awww I thought you were just hungry when I suggested the potato bacon and cheddar soup of FB. Poor Enty! If it's the nasty cold virus hitting you, hot and sour soup always works for me... get's you breathing better in minutes. Feel better soon and don't worry about us...rest and relax!There's a destination truth marathon on ScyFy u might like.

AndrewBW said...

Seconding the above - get well. Hope you feel up for the radio show.

Cali Girl said...

Feel better soon enty!

Emobacca said...

I guess we'll use this thread to report entertainment news;

Just read that Stifler entered rehab tonight

Get well soon Enty!

GladysKravitz said...

Get well soon, Enty. I'm sorry you don't feel well and if there's anything I can do, drop me an email. Although bacon is cured, I'm not sure it's always a cure, but whatever. Just tell me that you don't have mercury poisoning!

RocketQueen said...

Good idea, Emobacca! I just read this article about Jodie Foster on defending Mel Gibson and working (currently) for Polanski. She's making it difficult for me to keep loving her:

Mooshki said...

LOL, Gladys! Take care of your big ole self, Enty!

Jen said...

I recommend some chicken soup (with bacon), a warm blanket, and some old black and white Perry Mason episodes. Feel better soon!!!

pilly said...

Feel better and stay hydrated

girltrav said...

Wow, Enty must be really sick he hasn't deleted the troll comments.
Get well soon Enty!

Tich said...

Get well soon, as we miss you.

mindyj9 said...

Get well soon! We love ya!

Sylvia said...

wishing you well Enty!!

Green Wave Gal said...

Give me an address and I'll bring some over after work. :) I'm local.

TinselSass said...

Feel better, Enty. Take care, all of you!

A twist on Astrid's suggestion... I've been drinking hot water with an ounce of lemon juice and honey every day this winter and have avoided all sickness (I usually get slammed hard every winter). It really is a magic tonic.

pilly said...

Is it wrong that my Immediate thought when I first saw the SICK title was "what has Charlie Sheen done now"? Just wondering.....

Jennifer said...

what is a "Troll comment"??

girltrav said...

Jennifer, there were a few trolls yesterday-people with inappropriate comments. Enty usually deletes the people that are really offensive-by the end of the day.

Jennifer said...

Thanks @girltrav...I was always wondering what that meant ;)

lanasyogamama said...

Poor Enty! Feel better.

sunnyside1213 said...

Any guesses on Lainey's new blind? I hope it's Ashley Judd.

Interplanet Janet said...

Oh you poor thing... I had the same crud a few weeks ago and lost a week of work. It felt like the plague. At first the Dr. thought it was viral but then (after I went back a second time) agreed that is was a sinus infection on top of the virus so I finally got some prescription antibiotics. The best advice I can give is to drink lots of Emergen-C and take lots of Zinc and olive leaf. Zinc kills virus and olive leaf is a natural antibiotic. Plus lots of rest. If that doesn't help, get thee to a doctor. Take care, friend.

Dulcinea said...

Feel better soon! Would bring soup and $240 worth of pudding to get you back blogging for us. You are missed. (C:b

Melody the First said...

Feel better, Enty.

Joanna said...

Hope you get well soon!

Mooshki said...

Sunnyside, it sure does sound like classic Ashley Judd.

Here are some blinds from the New York Post. As usual, the answer is "ALL OF THEM!"

#1: Which actor recently linked to a series of starlets has been secretly sleeping with a man?

#2: Which lusty director has been ordering hookers to the set of his latest movie?

#3: Which former squeaky-clean child actor was recently spotted buying drUgs openly on the street in the West Village?

Mooshki said...

This one from Blind Gossip is more interesting than the usual fare:

This actress makes plenty of money and is always well turned out, so you may be surprised to hear that she has sticky fingers. Or, in her case, sticky toes. She has a particular method that she uses to literally walk off with expensive shoes.

When she goes shoe shopping, she wears a super long dress or long pants. She has the shoe salesperson bring her multiple boxes of Jimmy Choos, Louboutins, and Blahniks, and makes them run back and forth multiple times during her visit. At some point, the old pair get wrapped up in tissue paper and placed into one of the boxes, and the new pair go on her feet.

She makes sure she is standing when the clerk returns, purchases maybe one pair of the dozens she tried on, and walks out of the store with one pair in a bag and one pair on her feet. So it’s always a half-price sale for this sneaky girl and her size 7 1/2 feet.

Mooshki said...

And here's the Lainey blind again for those who didn't see it before:

She’s long had a reputation for being absolute hell to work with. I mean like straight up crazy. Leaves her sh*t, sometimes literally, everywhere, specifies exact times when people can or cannot talk to her, is foaming at the mouth insane one minute, calm and collected the next. Lately her opportunities have dried up. And this is a good example of why. Press junket. A handler has to make sure she wakes up in the morning. Because she’s not a proper adult? She finds her completely out of it. Has to put her in the shower and hold her up. Picture that please. A grown woman having to be physically supported in the shower to make sure she can go and do her job. She then had to be spoon fed her breakfast. And she had to be dressed. Like, let’s put on your socks! Finally they get her to the point where she can be seen in public. A journalist is soon expected for an interview. Through it all she’s still a fucking zombie. Soon as the reporter comes into the room though, a switch goes off. She’s alive. She’s engaging. She can speak in proper sentences. And you can imagine, for the people who’ve experienced this, who’ve had to work with her, who have to manage the unpredictability of this, how scary it must be, how utterly unsettling, even more unsettling than most of her peers. And in her business, that’s a pretty high standard.

Reese said...

Spend some restful time on the futon, Enty; hope you are feeling a lot better very soon. Miss you, and you have my sympathy with whatever ails you.

Mooshki said...

Oh no, she didn't!!! Sarah Palin just dissed Julianne Moore and Tina Fey! Talking about the new movie about her that Julianne is starring in:

"I am all about job creation and I guess I could provide some of these gals who pretend they're me some job security."

As if!

Mooshki said...

More gossip: Amanda Bynes went after Miley's sloppy seconds: she's hooking up with Liam Hemsworth.

RocketQueen said...

Hahahaha!! It's funny that people who are more beloved and make more money than Sarah Palin even have to listen to that woman's opinion about "job security".

Cindy said...

Hope you get better Enty.

mngddess said...

Poor Enty. Sue Ellen and I will be right over with some bacony soup and lots of cookies.

sassyyankee said...

Aww, feel better soon, Enty.

white lorelei said...

So, I'm the one Sarah Palin fan in the bunch, I reckon.

For the blind on sticky feet -- I'm thinking SJP. She wears long wide pants alot.

Mooshki said...

Hey, remember how we thought Suri was too young to be the one from the blind yelling the f-bomb at her mother? Well, apparently she's old enough for gummy penises.

amoteafloat said...

I LOVE Suri!! I love her partly because she's better dressed than her mother, and also because she's probably already a better thespian than her father.

I want her to grow up to be a godawful Hollywood terror -- but without the accompanying drugs, rehab stints, and charges of grand felony theft, of course.

Oh, and Enty, get well soon!!!

Mooshki said...

Well, you know that there's that theory that she was specifically bred by the Sci Church to take over Hollyweird when she grows up.

linnea said...

...and gummy peninses are an important part of that.

RocketQueen said...

There's a removing of dentures for a blowjob joke here, but I just can't figure it out.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Poor Enty...if you've got a cold/upper respiratory thing happening, go w/hot & sour soup, or else chicken broth simmered w/garlic & ginger plus a slug of hot sesame oil (ramen noodles minus the packet of ick that comes w/them are good in this). If it's gastrointestinal, stick w/clear liquids (chicken broth, ginger ale, popsicles, jello, some sorbets). Potato bacon, although lovely, would probably be better for when you're actually on the mend. Hot tea w/lemon & honey is good no matter what, so have some of that, too--just be sure & keep those fluids going, so you don't get dehydrated. (And yes, if you were in Boston or I in LA, I'd be sure & bring you some soup.) Take care of yourself, and feel better soon, OK?

Syko said...

Another twist on that hot lemonade...my grandma always made it for me back in the 1940s and 1950s, and she put a good size glug of Four Roses in it. I don't know if it cured anything, but after 3 or 4 you didn't care.

Dijea said...

ENTY GET WELL SOON!

Sue said...

Poor Enty. Too bad there is nothing good on daytime TV. Take care.

Middle-aged Diva said...

What they said.

Carla said...

Get well soon Enty :(

Ricki said...

LOL @ Middle-aged Diva! Feel better Enty :)

Jamie's Girl said...

Look people, get him PO-TA-TO NOT T0-MA-TOE Soup. Stop trying to rip our Enty off. Add extra crispy bacon and cheese too, with a side loaf of Cheese Bread.

The Black Cat said...

Mmmmm, potato bacon soup is my favourite too :)

Sorry you are feeling poorly, it's no fun.

My Witches Brew for getting over the flu or a cold is chicken broth with lots of garlic and ginger, onions or shallots and then your favourite vegetable, I usually go with parsnips. Cook this up until the vegetables are tender and then throw in some dried Goji berries about 15 minutes at the end. Sometimes I add noodles or rice but often I just take it "neat", makes a huge difference. Of course it's better when someone else cooks this up for you when you're not feeling well.

MCH said...

Feel better, Enty!

nataliesinger said...

Oh..feel bad you're sick..get well soon and stop eating crap while you're ill..

L'auteur said...

Feel better, Enty!

ardleigh said...

Enty, I hope you are better soon. I would get you the best chicken soup EVER. It's from the Greek Restraunt near me. I swear it makes me feel better every time I'm well.

Poor Enty, I'm so sorry you're sick. We us Zicam as soon as we start getting sick and it really works well. If not, well, Grandma used to give me hot water, fresh squeezed lemons, sugar, and a hefty tot of whiskey...it may not cure you but you sure feel fine pretty quick!

#3: Which former squeaky-clean child actor was recently spotted buying drUgs openly on the street in the West Village?

I actually have a guess for this one. Daniel Radcliffe is on Broadway again. It would break my heart, but that's my guess: Dan Rad.

Lioness70 said...

Feel better, Enty. My family's been hit with bug after bug after bug. They're thankfully mild, but no fun when the kids keep bringin' 'em home from school.

caydian said...

@white lorelei...you're not alone. I love this site but I am a fan of Palin, too.

Laura M said...

Thanks for the fun and juicy blinds Mooshki! Get well soon enty, my day was not the same without you :(

elspeth said...

Enty -- I saw a drink the other day that immediately made me think of you. The bar's version of a Bloody Mary uses, instead of a celery stalk as a stirrer, three strips of crisply cooked bacon.

You could get some Vit. C from the tomato juice; the bacon would make you happy; and the vodka could ease you off into LaLa land. Hope you feel better soon whatever remedy you choose!

bluebonnetmom said...

Hope that you are feeling much better. There is some nasty stuff getting passed around right now.
