sunday supper: e coli edition

I did actually make dinner on Sunday evening, but I haven't posted anything about it yet because the night culminated in the worst case of food poisoning that I have ever experienced. I just want to make it clear, however, that J-Cat also ate everything that I cooked and did not get sick. So I'm sticking with the knowledge that some food poisoning can take 24-72 hours to make you sick, and it was something I ate the day before and did not cook. Actually, Dr. Mom came to take care of me yesterday when I was in constant agony, and agreed that my symptoms and the course of the illness sounded more like E Coli than anything else, and apparently E Coli can take days to affect you. I don't want to know what it was doing while waiting those few days. I guess I'm just glad that it waited until I was at home and "Entourage" was over.

So in the last 36 hours, I have eaten only some plain soupy rice, a slice of bread, about 2 spoonfuls of chicken soup, and three bites of a ham and cheese sandwich that my stomach obviously did not like. Oh, and three triscuits. Those three triscuits are going to get me through the day. I have never been so afraid of food, but on the upside, I'm down 4 pounds in time for swimsuit season. I also discovered that Pedialyte is narsty and I can only drink it when it's watered down. Seriously, it's like syrup, this is really okay to give kids? How is it possible that it has less sugar than Gatorade?

You sure you aren't pregnant?

If that's what pregnancy feels like, then I don't understand how the species has persisted.
