Sweet Fancy Moses

Gawd. I've had food poisoning. How'da hell that happen? Let's see, we'll stoke the boiler and climb aboard my handy-dandy Wayback Machine and see, shall we?

This last weekend was RavenCon, a little nerd shindig that involved my brother coming up to stay for a couple days to bitch and moan about everything and to annoy my cat, and getting to hang around with Sherri & Jay. I apparently bought two books I kinda really didn't want (two books for the price of two!) and groped not a single geek-boy. My brother and I also thought RavenCon was next weekend so I had no embarassing getup to wander around in. It really didn't matter since this year was Pirate Year and I'm dreadfully bored by the whole pirate thing. Or at least pudgy guys dressed like pirates with Keith Richards eyeliner who are pointedly not Johnny Depp. That's just freakin' wrong and sooo last Halloween. At least none of them had fake parrots.

When the show was done we all piled up in a van and went to a normally very nice (and nameless) ethnic resturaunt near the airport. Said nice ethnic resturaunt had a fighter jet painted on the ceiling, inexplicably firing rockets at Popocatepetl. It made no real sense because the airport isn't military. Anyhow, the food was great, as it usually is at this place, or at least at the other two locations I'd eaten at. I now refuse to vouch for this one.

But great food going down ain't no guarantee it's gonna be any good coming back up, especially after it's been fermenting away down there for about 12 hours. Tasty.

I spent the entire night willing myself to not barf. I'd doze, wake up with what felt like a kick in the diaphragm, say some kinda "don't puke" mantra, then go back to sleep for a bit. I eventually lost the battle about 7:50am Sunday morning after the cat had stomped across my stomach for the nth time, and forcibly expelled everything I had eaten for at least the past three days. I think my insides are permanently turned inside-out and I wasn't exactly pleased with having to kneel in the cat litter strewn around the toilet.

I ate nothing all day Sunday, mostly because of the meat grinder in my gut, well nothing except for an entire large-sized container of Tums EX. I pretty much spent the whole day curled in a fetal position waiting for death but the sonofabitch didn't show.

My brother? I heard the bastard merrily chomping Pringles before I staggered off to jam my head down the toilet. I also had the joy of watching him snarf down some smelly frozen pasta dish while my innards griped and swirled.

Monday, I've sort of spent stretched out on the sofa hoping the cat will stay the hell off me. I finally ate a slice of toast a couple hours ago but it tasted like ass. Truly, this has got to be what ass tastes like. If somebody does some research and tells me that no, this isn't what ass tastes like I will hit them really really hard.

Of course my freezer is filled with all manner of raw chicken parts and the cabinets are crammed with Indian sauces and such, none of which sound even remotely appetizing right at the moment.

I truly think I shall never eat anything ever again.

How many times do I have to tell you NOT to eat the recalled cat food? huh?

FP stinks and I hope you fully recovered eating all manner of weird things again. Just stay away from the cat food. k?

The last time I did that.. I had eaten a big ol' dinner of Jamaican food first. If I EVER see cabbage or peas with rice again.. it will be too soon.
I'm glad you're feeling better. The Ren faire this year was filled with bad Captain Jack look-alikes as well. While I do like the POTC movies.. I'm really sick of these clowns who think they look like Johnny Depp. At least learn to properly apply eyeliner before you go out wearing it... that's a hint for both wannabe pirates & weekend goths alike. lol.

Sorry about your digestive misfortune. It must have been your dinner alone -- the rest of us were fine and dandy. Did you grab any free food at the con? I can't vouch for any free food.

There was one (and ONLY one) skinny Johnny Depp Channeling pirate geekboy at the con, and he looked seriously underfed. He also tipped to the right constantly.

See, I love pirates, but in my defence I've loved them since I was a wee second grader living on a tropical island in the Indian Ocean with some interesting piratical history. And I don't look like Johnny Depp, even when dressed like a pirate.

12 hours incubation and a day's worth of being sick sounds like an infection, as versus an intoxication. Give it another day and, if you aren't already, you should be back to normal operating levels.

why is it that cats (1) scatter an inordinate amount of kitty litter right where one must kneel at the porcelain throne so that the sharp rocks imbed themselves in one's knees and elbows and quite possibly cheeks and forehead should one need to lie prostrate before it to regain one's senses and (2) trod most heavily upon one's innards at times of the greatest gastro-intestinal distress?

these are questions that i ponder in the wee hours.

dam bastards. all of them.
