Sick day selections

Today is Day 3 and a half of being stuck at home, relegated to either the bed or the couch, and my gawd, I am bored as hell AND I have a super sore back!

On the upside though, despite my nose still being completely stuffed up and infected green grodies still curdling out of my throat, I think I’m on the mend. My head isn’t quite so foggy, my voice isn’t quite so smoky, and I’m not struggling to climb the stairs nearly as much as I have been… I just need my blood sugars to get back on an even keel and the wheezing hack to disappear and I’ll be happy snappy once again.

The only saving grace of being sick is the all-day viewing I get (between cat naps of course) of the Food Network and girly, girly movies.

My top 10 best sick day movies:

  1. 13 Going on 30
  2. Pretty Woman
  3. Romeo and Juliette
  4. When Harry Met Sally
  5. Robin Hood (Cue Maid Marion’s: “Robinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!”)
  6. Dirty Dancing
  7. 10 Things I Hate About You
  8. Princess Bride
  9. Fast Times at Ridgemont High
  10. And to honour a late sick-day great: The Bodyguard

That list was super hard to come up with, I mean, only 10? There are so many to choose from, whether it be nostalgic selections, or girly girly ones, or those that tickle and warm the heart, or those that make you laugh so hard it hurts. Brothers Bloom, 500 Days of Summer, Across the Universe, In The Loop could have all easily made that list, but alas, only 10 were allowed… maybe I should have given you a top-20 😉

For today, I chose early years and teenage nostalgia with Gremlins and Edward Scissorhands.

What are your favourite sick day viewings?
