and after all, i'm only sleeping

I am lazy by nature, so I love lounging around whether it be in bed, in the grass or anywhere at all. But add the fact that I've been sick this past week and I've got myself a recipe for disaster. I don't usually ever get sick, so when I do -- even with the slightest of colds -- I completely shut down. I've been drawing inspiration from movies, various photo shoots and television programs by trying to be chic during my downtime. Basically that means lying in bed while wearing a kimono and lipstick. This practice, while it might not yield any benefits for my health, is good for my soul -- which is basically the same thing.

This is kind of how I am feeling (glad to know my sickness neuroses are lined up with Woody's!)
