I can't handle nitrous the way I used to.

I was unwell at the dentist's office. (British usage.) This was really terrifying because it happened while I was on my back and too out of it to do anything. I was scared, sick, and embarrassed and then had to go through my cleaning with less nitrous than I'm used to. Not fun. As you may remember from the Maui snorkling adventure, I really, really hate throwing up. Not that anyone likes it, but one reason I never made it as a bulimic, is that I couldn't (ahem) stomach the puking.

About a year after Karen Carpenter died, there was an article in People about her using Serum of Ipecac and I thought that sounded like a good idea. I WAS YOUNG AND STUPID AND LIVING IN SLAVERY TO MY BODY IMAGE ISSUES!!!! Tried it. Once. NEVER EVER AGAIN

I wish I could blame the nausea on the screen over the chair showing Ratatouille, but no such luck. Maybe I shouldn't have been inhaling the nitrous quite so deeply, especially after doing my Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet imitation. "Mommy, mommy."

Anyway, I'm ok, and I got through it, but it just goes to show, that this week really sucks.

I took the 22 Fillmore back to Church & Market and went to a thrift store called Out of the Closet to get a shirt that didn't smell like puke. Then I went to the Mint, where I ran into my friend Bob. We spent about three hours doing obscure songs, trading snark, and generally having fun. I won't bother posting the whole song list, but it was the most relaxed I've felt in days.

At about 715-ish I left and went to Pak-Wan to get some Indian food for dinner. (My tummy's ok, I promise.) Outside on 16th Street, I overheard the following piece of information, which I pass on to you to use as you see fit:

"It's ok to write on somebody if they've passed out, but not if they've fallen asleep."
