Fortunately, I managed to rise above it and watch four episodes of M*A*S*H, including the one pictured above, titled "Quo Vadis, Captain Chandler?", which is simply wonderful. It includes two of my favorite characters, Sidney Freedman and Colonel Flagg, and the fellow playing Captain Chandler, who now believes he is Jesus Christ, is marvelous. I was especially touched by Father Mulcahy in this episode, who, for just a fleeting moment, allows himself to consider the possibility; it's a wonder to see how his face lights up at the thought.
Seriously. What wouldn't you give to spend a few minutes talking to Jesus? Whatever you believe about whether he's the son of God, isn't that a conversation you'd like to have?!
In other news, I have a bizarre series of itchy bug bites down my right calf:
- Me: I think we have bedbugs.
- Husband: We don't have bedbugs.
- Me: LOOK at my leg. Look at it!
- Husband: Ew.
- Me: Bedbugs!!!
- Husband: If we have bedbugs, why are they only biting you?
- Me: Because you hog the covers.
- Husband: ??
- Me: They're too hot on your side, so they come running to me. And then bite.
- Husband: Well, that seems clear.
Maybe soaking in a hot bath will rid me of my itch. Here's hoping!

p.s. I want to enter a Mary Kay makeover contest, but oddly I'm supposed to do the makeover myself, ahead of time. They want me to submit "before" and "after" pictures, so I will try to remember to have Husband take a picture of me the moment I wake up (before I put on my make-up), when I should be suitably hideous. I'm planning to cut my own hair tomorrow (a flaw-free plan!), so I will likely be quite gorgeous for the "after." Maybe I'll put on false eyelashes. And wear my bifocals. Ha.
