And Now Is Nap Time

I really tried to curtail the “I’m feeling ill” posts. Honestly. But this has been going on for a while, and I don’t like it. Now my temperature is bouncing around on a trampoline, from 101 to 97.9. It’s ridiculous. And when I get a bit feverish, usually whilst in bed under my SINGLE cover, I start shaking harder than the earthquake in Alaska that broke a 9 on the Richter scale that likely very few people recall.

Thanks in part to my shaking (and my cat, who ate through my cell phone charger last night (this is not related to the me being sick, I’m just annoyed by it)), sleeping has been difficult. I also have sores in my mouth. They’re sores I’ve had before, sadly, and they really suck. The one inside my lip isn’t so problematic, it’s caused because me incisors keep accidentally biting me there. But the partner on the same side of my mouth, the sore on the left edge of my tongue… That one’s the worst. And when I say edge, I don’t mean it’s on top. It’s on the side. So even moving the tongue hurts. Makes eating awkward.

Especially eating a sandwich. Which I did yesterday, because I was fed up with things and my stupid condensed soup needed a can of milk, not a can of water like I assumed it would. Stupid broccoli and cheese…

Anyway, I had planned to write about how Mitt Romney is terrible and how his 47 percent thing perpetuates a false narrative about the working lower class (such as, they are worthless and/or don’t exist), but I don’t have time (or viable conscious mind) for that. So, between dreams of appearing on “The Voice” (where I sing “Collide” by “Howie Day”), I’m writing this update. Technically, this thing has until about sundown tomorrow to buzz off, but it seems less and less likely that that’s going to occur. So, Friday, when I’m not having to be at work all day (just the first half), I think I’ll swing to a doctor. Assuming they take non-insured people for less than an appendage or two. Or an organ, I want to keep those, I think.

But! I do have something cool to beg forgiveness. It’s a video with Grover and Cookie Monster making fun of “Twilight” and singing musical versions of “The Hunger Games,” “The Avengers,” “Doctor Who” and “The Newsroom.” My only complaint is that Grover doesn’t quite sound like the Grover I recall, but Muppeteers change. Many times because they die. Sadly.

…anyway, enjoy that! I’m going to pretend I’m completely healthy and sleep an uninterrupted sleep, as opposed to only two hours like last night.

Sing, Sang, Sung – “Share It Maybe” By Cookie Monster

Okay. So, I’m a bit distracted today. Kinda hanging out, playing the 3.5e D&D campaign I’m in. Therefore, instead of a political/thoughtful post (I’ve been failing on this front a lot lately…), I’ve got another song!

In the same strain of the “Star Wars That I Used to Know” spoof and the “Beauty and the Beat” spoof, this is a “Call Me Maybe” spoof. A recently made Carly Rae Jepsen song that has, apparently, been playing everywhere non-stop, “Call Me Maybe” is something everyone seems to know by now. And spoof. And, strangely, I haven’t heard it yet. At all. Only versions I’ve heard are this one and one where President Barack Obama “sings” it. Anyway, “Sesame Street” has decided to make a spoof of the song where Cookie Monster sings about his longing for, you may guess, cookies.

Though, to be fair, Cookie Monster eats everything. And I do mean everything. In the “Sesame Street” movie “Follow That Bird,” Cookie Monster ate the majority of a car.

Yes. A car.

But his favorite food has always been cookies. So this is an interesting little song about his love of the dessert. It makes me almost want to listen to the original… though not quite.

“Share It Maybe” – Cookie Monster (“Call Me Maybe” spoof)

Me got a wish on me mind
It is a chocolate chip kind
Me look at you and me tell
You may have snickerdoodle

Me trade me soul for a bite
Me spell it out black and white
Me look at you and me see
You like an elf in a tree

You, cookie-showing
And me hunger growing
Let’s get skim milk flowing
We’ll start this snack going baby

Hey, me just met you
And this is crazy
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

It’s hard to look at
Your snack baby
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

Hey, me just met you
And this is crazy
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

Cuppy-cake with frosting
It don’t phase me
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

You took you time with the bite
Me trying to stay polite
Me start to really freak out
Please someone call the girl scout

Me no grumble or grouse
It’s taking toll on me house
Me going off me rocker
Please give me Betty Crocker

You, cookie-showing
And me hunger growing
Let’s get skim milk flowing
We’ll start this snack going baby

Hey, me just met you
And this is crazy
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

It’s hard to look at
Your snack baby
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

Hey, me just met you
And this is crazy
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

Pie and ice cream
It don’t phase me
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

Before you came into me life
Me missed you so bad
Me missed you so bad
Me missed you so, so bad

Before you came into me life
Me missed you so bad
And you should know that
Me missed you so, so bad

It’s hard to look at your snack, baby
But you got cookie, so share it maybe

Hey, me just met you
And this is crazy
But you got cookie
So share it maybe

Chocolate pudding
It no phase me
But you got cookie
So share it maybe
