I have to take the meds for the next ten days or so. I might be 100% for Christmas, but definitely for New Year's. Note to self: flu shot next year!!!


I watched the Queer Eye holiday special on Bravo last night. It was great. The Fab 5 dropped in on four of their previous makeover recipients for surprise inspections. They all passed, some more than others. It was great to see the straight guys four or five months later. Then the Fab 5 invited the guys back to their loft for a Christmas party.

Hopefully, this time next year the first season of QE will be on DVD. Now there's a Christmas present.

After the holiday episode was a half-hour making-of special -- the video of the QE theme song. It was pretty cool seeing the Fab 5 away from doing makeovers. In case you were wondering, they still act the same. :-)

I got a package from Rachel yesterday. For my birthday, she sent me what I think is a real British 20 pound (I don't know how to type the pound symbol) note that's made to look like a Harry Potter 20 Galleon note. I thought they use Euros in Great Britain now. Anyway, it has a picture of Daniel Radcliffe as Harry from the first movie on the front and a picture of Alan Rickman as Snape on the back. It's the same picture of Snape that was on those posters of him from Sorcerer's (Philosopher's) Stone.

For Christmas, she sent me a silver cross pendant with large clear cz stones on it and a silver box chain. The chain broke during shipping and it's not repairable, but I have other chains I can wear it on.

All in all, very cool presents.

The Euro
Nope. They're still using the pound in the UK. The countries using the Euro are Belgium, Austria, France, Finland, Luxembourg, Italy, Norway, Germany, Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and Spain.

It's real easy to remember using the phrase BAFFLING PIGS.

Although, some shops in the UK will take the Euro. It's really up to the shop owner, and you're more likely to find those shops in the larger towns like London and Edinburrogh, and it's more likely to be the larger shops, like Harrods.

Re: The Euro
So Ireland does but the UK doesn't. Good to know. I wonder what the Galleon to Euro exchange rate is. :-)
