Bottoms Up

Well, I began this week with a bounce in my step and a flip in my hair, but by Wednesday night, I was swinging nothing but a huge box of Kleenex from my fingertips.  Yes, I've been a bit under the weather, wearing nothing but my sweats for the better part of the last 48 hours, watching "Dan in Real Life," drinking buckets of tea and bowls of pho (and perhaps sneaking the last of the Girl Scout cookies).  


BUT, I've also been drinking up my special I Have A Cold And Need To Get Healthy Tonic (or Get Filthy Tonic as I'm sure BC considers it).  The IHACANTGHT drink is kind of like tagging out and letting big, burly Vitamin C Man take over your corner of the ring to kick the holy bejesus out of your cold.  And it completely works, at least for me, in my highly psychosomatic ways.  So I figure I should share, just incase you need a burly C in your future.


The IHACANTGH Tonic:

3 Carrots
1 medium Beet (or two small)
3-4 hearty Kale leaves
1 Orange
1/2 Lime

Juice all together (for me, I use my trusty Juiceman) and drink it up!  Don't be afraid of the vampirish color, the taste is perfectly sweet and earthy - promise!


Bottoms Up and Back To Bed!

Don't encourage her Windhover.

You needn't worry BC - at this point the world is more preoccupied with climate change, economic stuff and ethnic minorities to realise the power of beet juice!

Windhover- I'm sure you are completely correct. Beet juice continues to be passed by in the never ending quest for world peace. But rest assured, that does not mean it is passed by in our house hold. And it continues to bring contempt!

(I really don't care that much, but it is fun to be disgusted. ;)
