I was a bit under the weather on Tuesday (not sure if it was something I ate, or just my stomach rebelling against paint fumes), but I spent the day in my bedroom. Since multi-tasking is still important to women, even when they feel less than great, I brought my laptop to bed with me and got more work done in a day than if I had been up and around. I had the TV on in the background for part of the day, to keep me company. And I wanted to share with you what I learned:
1. Apparently, the target audience of daytime tv is people who are home recovering from accidents. Lots and lots and lots of attorney ads.
2. Rachel Ray taught me that chicken stock is richer, and more flavorful, than chicken broth. I did not know that. duh. I have always used them interchangably.
3. If you have been drinking and think you may wake up with a hangover, you should NEVER take acetominophen. Ibuprofen is the preferred avoid-a-headache cure. Did not know that. "The Doctors" told me.
4. It is sad that they need to spend so much time telling people that you can't get flu from eating pork. For crying out loud.
5. Diane Lane is just as adorable in real life as she is in the movies. She was on "Martha Stewart", and I would like to be her friend.
6. Gatorade DOES help a queasy stomach. I learned that one first hand, after my husband insisted it would work.
Nothing like a day in bed to make you appreciate being up and around!
