My tummy hurts

Yesterday I had the most terrific dinner ever! We went to Moto, where the food is delicious, creative and fascinating. Our ten-course meal began with an edible menu, personalized in honor of my birthday, included a Greek salad puree served cold and in a shot glass, bbq pork and baked beans (the beans were cooked, frozen in liquid nitrogen, and converted to thin, spaghetti-like strips that melted in my mouth), and a truffle that tasted like -- and, once in my mouth, had the consistency of -- cotton candy. It was all amazing!

But this morning I woke up with the ickiest gastrointestinal malady. DON'T BLAME MOTO! I know exactly what set this off. Yesterday, at lunch in the cafeteria, I tried the fish. As I was placing it in my "to go" container, I actually asked myself if fish from a buffet is ever a good idea. I should have answered "no." OH! How I wished I'd answered "no."

Friday's Feast #24


What is your favorite carnival/amusement park ride? Roller coaster or Tilt-a-Whirl (depends on which one has the shortest line)

How do you react in uncomfortable social situations? Depends. I either try to dive in and make it better by changing the subject, or I withdraw

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy discussing deep, philosophical topics? Again, it depends. If the person I'm talking with is interested in exchanging ideas, I'd say 11! If the person is devoted to changing my mind, then a 2. I like learning, not being lobbied.

Main Course
Did you get a flu shot this year? If not, do you plan to? No and no. I'm allergic to thimerisol, which is a preservative used in the shots.

Approximately how many hours per week do you spend watching television? A GAZILLION! I'm a news junkie! I have MSNBC or CNN on most of the time. What if something happens and I miss it?
