Poor spiritualmonkey seems to have a touch of food poisoning - we got home a few hours ago and he lay down with a headache and nausea. This has been followed by time spent in the bathroom accompanied by truly alarming sound effects.

The weird thing is that we've eaten almost exactly the same food yesterday and today, and I feel fine. Ordinarily, he's the man with the cast-iron stomach while I'm the canary in the food-poisoning coal mine - there have been multiple occasions where I've eaten out with a group of friends and been the only one to get sick.

Back when we were going to Burning Man (it's been a few years since we attended), we used to include a case of food poisoning for me in our time budget. Some point during the first three days, it was a safe bet that I'd get sick. At least one of our Ranger friends half-seriously accused him of poisoning me.

And yet here I am, feeling dandy. Odd.

Gotta go make him a cup of ginger tea. Poor guy.

Poor Pirate! Hope he feels better soon. Food poisoning is nasty stuff; I've had it twice. Once from Taco Bell (what was I thinking?) and once from a dim sum place in Chinatown, where a group of 7 of us all fell ill. All it takes is *one* drop of contaminated liquid to hit the food. Praying to the porcelain gods for 12 hours is not fun stuff. Here's to a speedy recovery.

Feeling much better. It's amazing how a violent reverse evacuation of the stomach will make someone feel better. Gettin' rid of that bad tummy mojo is a good thing. And Lexica was right about the ginger tea. Badass tummy healin', that stuff is.

Oh, and it was, I believe, Ranger Silent Wolf who accused me of poisoning her. ;)

We saw Silent Wolf last weekend. He's staying on at the Integratron to help Rangers Rockit and Integra with landscaping - they're growing a lot of fruit on their property, and they're raising sheep and goats for the wool.

Sheep and goats? How cool! I'd love to have sheep and goats (and llamas!) if it weren't for the whole living-in-a-one-bedroom-apartment problem.

Sadly, these are the only way I'm going to get to have sheep and llamas as long as spiritualmonkey has veto power. *pout*

Heh heh. Just slip a llama in the closet and see if he notices ...

NO BIO-LLAMAS! I'm not scooping up that kind of crap! Plus, I'm just a meanie-head that way.
