I can’t believe how long this cold has hung on. I just can’t seem to shake it. Now I’m getting huge amounts of phlegm — coughing and sneezing. I’m just taking care of myself and working through my daily tasks in a gentle way.
A bright spot was last night’s season finale of 24. Many plot threads were tied up with neat bows. “Pouty” is pregnant. The vice-president seems to be learning from his mistakes. Josh was rescued.
The best thing was Jack Bauer’s final scene with Audrey. Even though she couldn’t hear him, he quietly told her “I love you with all my heart. I always will.” Then he left alone to look over the empty ocean. His feelings were all reflected in his face: “What next? Where in the hell do I go from here?” In that rough and tumble action/adventure show, the characterization scenes are really special.
