From the Meme Pile

They had a piece on the evening news about the stomach flu that's been going around. Favorite Ex-boss had it and is still not up to snuff five days later. What is extremely weird is that the only food he craves and can eat is canned goods! Remember, that's how I got into my new, easier way of cooking. I did not say a word about my canned food cravings to him, either; he just volunteered it in conversation. This wicked flu has changed my entire way of eating. The news story said it wasn't really the flu but some highly contagious viral thing. Hope it doesn't come back. The last time I was that sick was when I had amoebic dysentery from traveling to Central America (by car). Well, it wasn't quite THAT bad, but close, far too close.

Here is a Meme that I found lying around in my meme pile. I have no idea where I got it, and hopefully haven't posted it before!

Tonight I made "Elvis Chicken Bake" it was really good. I also had a Tom & Jerry with rum and brandy in it and am about ready for bed even though it's early. I went to bed at 2:30 AM last night (get up at 5) and had a loooonnnngggg boring telephone conference today for two hours at work. I barely stayed awake. Good thing I didn't have to take meeting minutes for that one. Have a great Thursday!

Awful about that flu---I,m keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm scared of any food that has Elvis in the title.

And for the record, I want to be tied to Viggo Mortensen...;)

Hey cool, like your answers to this meme. Don't think I've seen it on your blog before. I might have to steal it at some stage myself.

Hope everyone near you is getting over that wicked flu, sometimes those things can go around and around for friggin' ages! Maybe you should wear a doctor's mask to work? Just a thought lol
