January 1, 2009: New Year Crash and The Weird Food Purchase of the Day
Happy New Year! I hope everyone has slept off last night’s excesses. I, alas, have been thoroughly exhausted all day, the result, I suspect, of a number of things: a late night, that New Year’s Eve feast, a double-dessert crash, an uncomfy bed, and a trio of Weird Food Purchase of the Day video installments. I’m ready for bed. I was ready for bed a little after lunch. But, to ensure you get your daily blog fix, I have uploaded pics and the first of those Weird Food Purchase of the Day videos. Special thanks to my sister who gleefully rooted through her pantry and refrigerator to find three suitably disgusting food(like) products for me to sample. After the third (and, without a doubt, most stomach-churning entry to date), I felt as though I’d downed five successive shots of Inferno vodka (you know, the one with the actual peppers inside). Not even the prospect of Tombola (a sort of Italian bingo with significantly more shouting) was enough to bring me around. If I could have cut out before midnight, I would have. Unfortunately for me, Fondy was the one driving.
I was feeling a little better this morning and joined my sister and mom (and Felix) for a trip to lovely St. Leonard where we visited my Auntie Jeannette who was sent home from the hospital and, I‘m happy to say, back to her old self, updating us all on the tragic events of the week: innocents killed by drunk drivers, seemingly insignificant oversights that led to great misfortune, etc. Ah, just like old times.
To all those wondering, I’ve got Brad Wright’s Q&A prepped and ready to post. Soon. Very soon!
Rose – sorry to hear about your dog’s leg, but here’s hoping he makes a speedy recovery and quickly adapts to challenging but no less happy life.
Whovian – Happy Birthday! Next time you’re in town, remind me and we can all give you the birthday bumps.
