Never trust a slimy turkey

So, I've been a little bit gone lately. Don't know if you noticed. *whistling* I have this family member who saves all foods well past their expiration date. I checked once. The door of her refrigerator has salad dressings from 97 in there. To her credit *eye roll* she tells me that some of them are just re-used bottles, but judging from the whangy thwap of after taste, I'm guessing that most aren't.

She invited a bunch of us over for dinner last week and served up something she SWEARS she just thawed out. Seeing as how I was late and didn't eat until nine that night, and that's the ONLY thing I ate, I think there's a secret fib in there somewhere. I spent the next four days doubled over a garbage can.

And folks, this is not the first time either.

I'm never eating at her house again.

On the lighter side, I get to meet awesome author Julia Rachel Barrett this Thursday. That's right. I'm flying to her beautiful State (which I won't disclose in case she doesn't tell people) for a five day visit!! I'm trying to get up to health so we can hike and stuff. I love hiking though it's been a while. I think she'll lap me.

Oh, and I'm working on some comics for my recent smattering of doctor visits which left me in a huge Fwuh. Maybe it's working as an erotic romance writer, but it does seem like oddly erotic things occur in the doctor's office. Or is that just me??

So...just to commiserate - my daughter got food poisoning from undercooked chicken a month ago. She was sick as a dog! You poor thing! I can't wait to see you but you'll lap me because I'm going to get my foot x-rayed to see if I fractured it jumping from a horse. Heehee...
It was so worth it!

I wondered where you disappeared to. Food poisoning is the worst.

I'm jealous. Two of my favorite people get to hang out without me. *pouts* LOL
Hope you ladies have fun.

Feel better and have a wonderful trip!

That's because they're so sterile and puritan and forbidden. They just need to be dirtied up.

Doctor's offices, that is. You know.

I noticed!!

My brother and I got food poisoning from hotdogs that had been frozen for a while - I think I was 4 and he was 2. He had to go the hospital and almost died!

(Deep breaths in and out, in and out...)

Dr. S: Are you okay?

Me: I'm fine...just take your fist out of there and I'll really be okay...

(Nurse laughs, Dr S shakes his head)


Glad you're okay; I just figured with that wacky release schedule you were veeeeeerrrrrry busy!
