It's the most wonderful time of the year.

When you have a cold you:

make LJ polls

The best way to cure a cold is:

chicken soup
chicken sacrifice
watching Slam Dunk
you can't cure the common cold, moron

Most annoying thing about colds:

sounding like Patty and Selma
that weird taste in your mouth
people who tell you to take garlic and honey

The best way to feel better when you have a cold:

flannel jammies
garlic and honey
Scotch and lemon
fuck the lemon, just have Scotch

Sorry you're sick, sweetie. But it sounds like you have a lot of ways to take care of yourself on this list.

P.S. Lemon and honey and hot water. For reals.

Well, it's my first bad cold in nearly three (or maybe four -- hard to keep track) years so I really can't complain TOO much. I'm drinking hot water and lemon and whispering along to my CDs. :)

I take it you have a cold, then?

I tend to swallow an arseload of soluble Vitamin C and use Vicks First Defence

I do. But I am Coping. :) Vitamin D usually keeps my immune system up but I guess this one slipped by.

Awwwww. I think you should go with Scotch and Atobe.

(Let me know if you want to cancel chat, or if I need to bring along some sympathetic Scotch as well *g*.)

I'm fine to chat! I can't actually speak, but that won't matter. :D

Scotch and Atobe sounds divine. I hope he won't mind all my phlegm.

Here are Dr. Tezuka and Nurse Ryoma to make you feel better :)

Raw honey in water not above 60C (or just eat it on its own) might help itchy throat. For blocked nose, breathe in steam from a hot drink/soup.

And no, we have no cure for the cold, sadly. Have plenty of rest and get well soon :)

They are way too cute!

I have some hot water to drink, so that will be soothing. :)

I don't even know what to take when I have a minor headache... Get well soon!

I have some cough syrup so I'm fine. Even if I have to whisper to everyone. :)

Oh noes! It got you too?

I have a great cold remedy if the boy is willing to go to the shops for you. totally organic too.

I'm on the mend but I totally lost my voice. I've been fasting a bit but I just broke down and ate some meatloaf.

What's your cold remedy?

That just made my day.

Hee! Glad it cheered you. :)

Aw!! *huggles* *while trying not to catch the virus*

I hope you're up and about again soon. Fuck I hate colds!! DX

I think I'm not contagious any more. :) I had today off so I think I'll be rested up for tomorrow! *hugs*

Hee! I bet Atobe never gets sick. Or at least, never gets sick in an undignified way.

I make my friend's mom's I'm Sick Tea recipe:

Makes 1 teapot
4 teabags black tea
1/2 lemon
1 thumb-size piece of ginger, split
brown sugar

Put all ingredients in teapot. Squeeze lemon first if you want. Pour over hot water, let steep, drink.

Ooh, ginger! I bet that would feel good going down.

Awww, I hope you feel better soon!

Love your poll. Thanks for the laugh.

You left out the "sleep with cats curled up round you" part of the treatment. I tend to sleep off colds, and the cats always come and sleep in unison with me.

I'm allergic, so I never thought of that! (Also, I'm a bad napper.)
