I actually do have a fever. Chills through the day that I attributed to not dressing warmly enough, blossoming into a 100+ temp this evening. Feels very out-of-the-blue, and poorly timed given my schedule for the rest of the week.
Maybe it’s how my fevered brain works, but I got a sudden hankering to watch the Will Ferrel/Christopher Walken “more cowbell” skit from Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately, it looks like NBC has requested that the full skit be removed from YouTube. There’s this little clip of Walken saying the key line, and that’s almost enough.
As it happens, recently I’ve also had a strange yen for 70s stadium rock. This is almost certainly due to watching the Penguins in the Stanley Cup playoffs, and hearing the music that’s blasted through the arena. I picked up a bunch of songs by Styx, some by Kansas and Toto (!), and “Don’t Fear the Reaper” by Blue Oyster Cult. So I can hear more cowbell any time I want. I’m sure to be well in no time.
