Mending, with help

I'm slowly feeling better. And let me tell you what helped*: Rachel's Yogurt, and Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe.

Rachel's Yogurt comes in a bunch of delicious flavors, such as pomegranate-acai, vanilla chai, and pineapple-passionfruit-mango. It's got a nice texture, no artificial sweeteners, and a full range of probiotics (not just lactobifilus). It's also DHA-fortified. And delicious. Creamy and cool and so delicious, especially when it feels like there are angry wasps buzzing around in your head.

Have you seen Dirty Jobs yet? It's this disgusting-yet-compelling show on Discovery in which Mike Rowe, former opera singer, goes and works for a day with someone who has a messy job. He does things like tanning hides, sorting garbage, harvesting bloodworms from muck, shearing alpacas, cleaning owl poop out of owl-houses, and a whole bunch of other really gross things. If you have a 5-year-old, you should probably be watching this show. What will keep you hooked in is Mike Rowe, who doesn't seem like much the first time you watch the show, but he grows on you episode by episode, until you find yourself having some rather untoward dreams about him in your feverish state.

* Besides the ibuprofen my office manager gave me. In his defense, it was Free Lunch Day at work and he wanted me to feel good enough to enjoy it. And be able to survive my post-lunch conference call.
