hang in there! remember that my inner ear is ruined too. eventually the challenges do become fun...

At 9:24 PM, Blogger Susan said...

What on earth am I doing commenting this early in the game?!

At 9:55 PM, Blogger Churlita said...

I'm so sorry. I hate ear problems. I hope you're better tomorrow.

At 10:46 PM, Blogger Sheila said...

I'm super sorry!! You should do a voice recorded post... yeah, yeah!

At 12:02 AM, Blogger SQT said...

Aw heck! I hope you feel better soon.

At 12:27 AM, Anonymous la cubana gringa said...

Hmmm...perhaps our little wine therapy backfired??

Hope you feel better soon.

(Try vodka instead of wine next time.)

At 12:56 AM, Blogger phishez_rule said...

So I just imagined the post telling me it wasn't a post. I gotta give up the juice.

At 1:22 AM, Blogger Orhan Kahn said...

If it IS an alien spawn in your ear then I am very sorry, sex-ed wasn't my best subject in primary school.

At 2:14 AM, Anonymous bk said...

That thing in the photo looks like some kind of alien vagina.

At 3:15 AM, Anonymous token said...

feel better soon...

At 3:36 AM, Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Would it help if I rubbed my pus filled shingles sores on your ears?

At 4:13 AM, Blogger Rachel said...


Rest well. Don't read these comments. Watch soaps instead.

At 4:45 AM, Blogger NWJR said...

You make me dizzy miss misty.

At 4:52 AM, Blogger Vengelyne said...

I wish that you really have an ear infection.

I'm not being evil and cursing you.

I was getting worried that you were getting bored with blogging; hence, your lack of posts lately. Either on vacation or being sick.

I'd rather you have an ear infection than to be bored of the blogosphere because your blog keeps me entertained.

Enough said.

ow ow ow ow. SO sorry.

At 5:28 AM, Blogger WanderingGirl said...

So long as the room's spinning already, you should go ahead and drink your breakfast. Mimosas. Mmmmmmmmm........

At 5:29 AM, Blogger Tera said...

Well at least today, you have something else to attribute your lack of equilibrium to...other than drinking of course!

At 5:31 AM, Blogger His Sinfulness said...

A special blessing from the Black Pope will help clear this up.

There - in your name, I lit a candle made entirely from ear wax. You will feel better soon, if your faith is strong enough...

At 5:49 AM, Blogger karma lennon said...

Sorry to hear it! Feel better soon! Drink more wine!

At 6:22 AM, Anonymous hellohahanarf said...

take care of you...we need you!

At 6:23 AM, Blogger Glamourpuss said...

1. Get down off the roof.
2. Symptoms of ear infection and extreme drunkeness are eerily similar.


At 6:49 AM, Blogger Avitable said...

Hope you feel better. Call me if you want me to drive all the way up there with chicken soup and vodka.

At 6:58 AM, Blogger WNG said...

Oh poor Mist! You take care of yourself sweetums and we'll see you after you've kicked some ear infection ass!!!

At 6:59 AM, Blogger turnerBroadcasting said...

Prognosis: recovery.

Actually to tell the truth.

She's really going to die. I just didn't want you to worry because
the infection is so bad, it will cause massive brain damage before she goes.

Oops. I wasn't supposed to say that.

At 7:19 AM, Blogger turnerBroadcasting said...


Ok that comment above was uncalled for. Sorry. Bad joke.

My fear levels are up. For both mist and a girl I know that has an infected dot where she pulled her earring out. I only have a guiche, so I'm ok.

Seriously its way too easy for something that reproduces once each day, mutates every week, goes through thousands of generations in a month - to be
able to mutate into a form we can't deal with , given that we reproduce once a day, go through generations once every twenty years, and only mutate during or immediately after vacations to the "vanderbilt mansion" when accompanied by our uncle, the really cool sea island architect that did all those "cottages" down there so nicely.

At 7:36 AM, Blogger mindy said...

You didn't listen to me when I said to increase your wine intake, did you? Tsk tsk tsk!

At 7:45 AM, Blogger Mayren said...

*big hugs*

Hope you feel better sooner rather than later sweets.

At 7:45 AM, Blogger Airam said...

Hope you feel better soon!

At 8:36 AM, Blogger NeverEZme said...

Hope you're feeling better soon.

At 8:42 AM, Blogger Matt said...


At 8:44 AM, Blogger Peter DeWolf said...

Ack. They suck. Feel better.

And stay off of the super high heels.

At 8:53 AM, Blogger The CEO said...

You need Arnold. Sending him ASAP.

At 8:58 AM, Blogger Comedy + said...

Get well mist. We need you for our daily fix! :)

At 9:03 AM, Blogger jennifer starfall said...

awww, sorry sweet-pea. feel better.

At 9:08 AM, Blogger puppylander said...

you caught that from making out with my girlfriend, didn't you?! homewrecker!

can i at least watch next time?

At 9:19 AM, Blogger c j. said...

ouch. been through that. no real cure but time or heavy drinking. either way, you'll come out a winner. be good, though.

At 9:23 AM, Blogger Jenny! said...

Feel better soon! That sucks donkey balls!

At 9:27 AM, Blogger velvet said...

Spending time horizontal without actually getting some can be really sucky.

Rest well and I hope that the antibiotics kick in soon.

At 9:35 AM, Blogger Curiosity.Killer said...

Oh that's just lovely, Mist 1. Have fun and get better soon.

At 9:39 AM, Blogger Scottsdale Girl said...

Ack, stay away from stairs.


At 10:56 AM, Blogger Nina said...

Hope you feel better soon!!

At 11:57 AM, Blogger Roadchick said...

The 'chick always suspected that you were dizzy. . .


Feel better soon.

Call if you need reinforcements.

How far are you from IKEA again?

At 12:21 PM, Blogger Mood Indigo said...

that sucks. I've had bad ear issues in the past (less due to my anatomy, more due to dumb decisions to jump off rocks from too high of a height) and it's no fun. Hope you feel better!

At 12:22 PM, Blogger Kim's World said...

Hope you feel better!

At 12:36 PM, Blogger Fab said...

Oh, poor Mist!

It's been said before and I will say it as well. Get well soon.

At 12:45 PM, Blogger TOM said...

I'd send you a singing get well card but you probably couldn't here get well!!

At 1:59 PM, Blogger tallulah said...

I hear pouring vodka down your ear canal works wonders.
Get better soon Mist....

At 2:29 PM, Blogger eric313 said...

Hope it doesn't hurt too much. Ear infections can be excrutiating to live through. Let alone type even a short message.

Get well very soon
...or drink the germs under the table!
talk to you later

At 2:31 PM, Blogger CruiserMel said...

Yikes. Take care, hokay?

At 3:39 PM, Blogger Legaleagle said...

Booze it up. Alcohol should kill all of the germies.

Feel better soon.

At 5:12 PM, Blogger Dave said...

Get. Well. Soon.

At 7:20 PM, Anonymous Perry said...

Why is there a picture of Fallopian Tubes on the.... oh. Nevermind.

At 9:09 PM, Blogger notfearingchange said...

throw vodka down the ear....lemme know if it works


At 5:00 AM, Blogger Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

I certainly hope you get over that soon!

At 6:34 AM, Blogger Susan said...

You must be very sick. Today you couldn't even post that the blog is cancelled. Try drowning the illness with alcohol.

At 6:58 AM, Blogger His Sinfulness said...

That is one persistent ear demon you have there. I have ordered the BCPs to double their chanting in your name...

At 8:41 AM, Blogger Winter said...

Please don't die.

At 9:27 AM, Blogger Jim said...

Hang in there Misty!

Wine and Amoxicillin sounds like [WA,WA,WA] the $2.00 cheese heroin the kids are using.
It kills!

At 10:06 AM, Blogger Jocelyn said...

Pouring vodka directly into your ear probably wouldn't do much to kill the little bastards in there...but it would make you all profoundly happier.

Hang in there, girl. At least you can pick your peeling skin while horizontal.

At 10:06 AM, Blogger Fairmaiden327 said...

Mama, I'm so sorry.

At 10:37 AM, Blogger Webmiztris said...

omg! that sounds terrible!

At 11:10 AM, Blogger turnerBroadcasting said...

winter - true.

They say only the good die young.
I guess I will live a long life..

At 1:08 PM, Blogger The Lad said...

hey hope u ll be really well soon:)

At 7:11 PM, Anonymous archie said...

Ouch, not nice. Antibiotics minus alcohol should work. Save the vodka for a middle ear recovery celebration. And then explain why a diagram of the inner ear looks so pornographic when it is on your blog.

At 7:11 PM, Blogger Lee said...


Oh wait.

That's not your sonogram is it?

At 9:18 AM, Blogger Echomouse said...

Ouch! that's freaking painful.

Feel better soon {Hug}

At 9:20 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

I'm not dead. Yet.

At 11:47 AM, Blogger puppylander said...

good. because i'll be really annoyed if my girlfriend turns out to be a lesbian necrophiliac.

Tip to prevent ear infection with adult:
Preventative methods typically range from flushing the ear to chewing gum. Yes, chewing gum is recommended as it is known to help relieve pressure in the ear as well as creating good saliva flow. Chewing gum usually works a treat during plane flights when ears are affected during the landing procedure in particular.
