fourth in fourth

I have noticed a blog tag game going on lately, where bloggers go to their photo library, select the fourth photo in the fourth folder, and then blog about it. People, this is a game for bloggers with children. It's an opportunity to stumble upon the darling photos from the pumpkin patch or a first birthday party. Childless bloggers just come up with... "Ah yes, here is an unflattering photo of me with three chins and a pair of felt antlers at a stake Single Adult Christmas party."

So, I'm not going to play that game. Because whatever. It was an unflattering angle and I didn't even want to be there.

It was only a matter of time before I got sick. Frankly, I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner, considering my morning commute feels like a city-wide group hug. Every time I have to grab hold of a smeary metal subway railing, I fear that it was most recently handled by a homeless person with tuberculosis and hand herpes.

I'm happy to report I have neither tuberculosis, nor hand herpes, but I have something else entirely unpleasant. I can't laugh without breaking into a tight, painful cough and I can feel my heart beat in my NOSE. My eyes are burning, my head aches, and I have the voice of a 13 year-old smoker (male). I've stopped blowing my nose and started just leaving the tissues stuffed into my face. Call it a preventative measure.

I'm just a wimpy sick person, I think. Some people can really work through it. Like, take for example, my Mister, who had bronchitis and a fever on our WEDDING DAY. And yet, he freaking sold it.

I, on the other hand, turn into a cranky first grader:

Mister: I'm home! I brought you some soup and tissues and cough drops!
Me: Did you bring me a puppy?
Mister: Umm... no?
Me: Whimper.

In my defense... he knows how much I've been wanting a puppy.

I'd like to invite all you Google Reader folks to come on over to the real BiggestLittle and check out the redesign! I hope you like it. I know you're going to have some questions/concerns about the new layout, so I've put together a quick list of FAQs:

1. Who is that charming child in your new blog header?
Why, it's me.

2. How can I get my handcrafted jewelry/papergood/home decor item listed in your "Things I Like" section?
Give it to me.

3. I noticed you removed your "Listening To," "Watching," and "Reading" gadgets. Why?
Removing the gadgets felt like less of an embarrassment than admitting I was still reading the same book after 4 months. I wanted to update the Reading gadget with a new image, but the truth was, I hadn't started a new book at all. I couldn't take down JUST the Reading gadget, because then you'd think I have given up the habit altogether and have focused solely on Listening and Watching, which simply isn't true. So I scrapped them all.

4. Who are you voting for tomorrow?
Come on, guys. You know I don't discuss politics here.

Okay, it's late and I still need to lay out my outfit for tomorrow morning.
