Today I bunked off work early on account of being very ill, on account of getting poisoned by my mother.

Mostly I was just saying that for dramatic effect since she didn't mean to. My mother made me lunch for work (couscous with peppers and sardines) and I think it was the sardines that did me in, thus continuing my misadventures with seemingly harmless foodstuffs.

I have a ridiculously sensitive digestive system anyway and stuff that normal people process without qualm will poison me. Started to feel very ill, very quickly with the consequences of baptising the toilet at work, looking all dramatic and feverish and eliciting huge amounts of guilt and self-recrimination in my parent.

Got home, curled up into a little ball of misery and decided to disinfect my insides with vodka and managed to cauterise the whole of my oesophagus as well as my stomach and put myself to sleep which was the best possible course of action and one which I shall retreat to since I've been awake for a whole hour now and it hasn't been particularly rewarding.

Anyone who wants to indulge my pathos by feeling sorry for me is welcome to.

a close friend of mine's mother found out about a month ago that her husband (my friend's stepfather of about 2 years) had been slowly poisoning her with arsenic. needless to say that relationship is over. so, erm, yeah, I hope you feel better, but it could be a lot worse :-?

*jaw drop*
bloody heck.

*wonders if I can ever get away with claiming that my mother has been slowly poisoning me with sardines as an ice breaker at parties*

not that I want to make light of that, but I am reminded of this - most of the women in a Hungarian village did quite nicely without their husbands whilst they were away at war, and when they came back slowly killed them off with arsenic distilled from flypaper. last year yiskah wrote an (as yet unpublished) novel on the subject, and on Saturday cleanskies provided me with a copy of her self-published comic that includes a page on the story too...

appropriate commiserations to Nina, too. Avoiding food poisoning will be fairly prominent in my thoughts over the next couple of weeks...

I am feeling sorry for you as it is more rewarding than feeling sorry for myself.

I was fed cheese risotto on Friday. Which didn’t make me ill at all, but did fill me up more than I had been anticipating. Cheese. And rice. It’s the anti-Atkins diet.

Right, I'm Going to Go Have a Drink Now
Well, that's terrible. Hope you recover, or at least find a deeper and more profound insight into your characters. It's also more reason why I stopped eating meat: perfect harbour for debilitating disease. (Get me off my soapbox, now.) Vodka sounds good though. I have some Danish blackcurrant flavoured vodka. I must go and drink it...

Awwwww Nina! Are you being sick in that icon?

No, I'm being thoughtful.
But I'm delighted by the multi-purposeness of the image

I just wanted to send you a smile and a thank you.
I don't often take the time to let you know how much I enjoy reading your journal, so I wanted to do that now. I enjoy reading your journal. I enjoy that you write in it regularly. I enjoy the things you write.

And in this entry, there is one thing that most stands out to me as a source of glee: You wrote the word oesophagus. I'm not sure I've actually seen that word written out in the last five years or more. I think I'm going to try to find an excuse to use it msyelf, just to practice spelling it. And I may just spell it the way you chose to here as a tribute to you. (The alternate correct way of spelling it is: esaphagus.

I love your icons with your freshly colored and trimmed hair, as well.

Here's to hoping you feel much better, much soonly. *grin*
