Wrestling my stomach.
Spent last night crippled over after getting some type of stomach bug, incurable by all known medications or at least those within my reach. Still feeling lingering effects this morning. The personal drama did land me briefly in a weird zone where I alternately felt like one of those adopt-me-for-only-pennies-a-day kids you see on TV with the distended stomachs and a heroin-waif model hunched over the toilet with my finger down my throat. Not many people have both those experiences in one night. Today a Colorado man is being charged with murder for giving his 4 and 5 year old kids cough syrup because it warned that it was for use only on people over 12...and the Joe Millionaire guy has announced a "World Tour" where he expects to make 15 thousand bucks per appearance, greeting his many fans.

Pass the cough syrup...and the maalox.
