My Thoughts on Food Poisoning  
Well... To put it succinctly, I think it sucks.

I don't think there's a need to go into more detail than that.

I went to one of our favorite restaurants for New Years Eve, Johnny Carino's, and ordered something new.

I never, ever, ever order out of my comfort zone. Ever, ever, ever. I have one or two things I eat at every restaurant we go to, and I ALWAYS order that. Boring? Maybe. But I'm not disappointed that way. I also never eat all of what I order, either; in this case, I ate about half the dish, so I took it home had it again for dinner last night. I eat leftovers all the time and I never have issues. I mean, restaurants give you obscene- thereisnowhatIcanfinisheverythinghere- amounts of food. It's wasteful not to take it with you, right? Being a longtime member in good standing with the Clean Plate Club (Where a lot of my food issues stem from, I think), I always feel like I need to take it with me.

I don't really have that compulsion, anymore.

Being awakened out of a dead sleep with a wicked case of food poisoning will do that to you. On the up side, I got to know the floor in my bathroom a little better (a really lovely, earthy stone, very forgiving), got reacquainted with what 3:00 in the morning looks like, (I don't recommend it), I slept 'til nearly noon. So I'm easing into 2010. Slowly. Cautiously.

Long story short, Shrimp Scampi will be added to the list of Things I Will Never, Ever, Ever, Ever Eat Again, along with Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cheetos, Won Ton Soup, and the Subway Cold Cut Combo. One has to be firm about these things. Besides, while I was associating with the bathroom floor, we had a little chat about it. He thinks it's a good idea, too.

And quite frankly, I respect his judgment.

EEEK! I hope you get back to 100% soon. YUCK! Jay had a bit of that on New Years Day (morning?) too. Not a fun time. ICK! ICK ICK!

Oh dear! Hope you are feeling better. Did you inform the restaurant? Maybe you can get a free meal out of this.

I won't be going back. At least not for a while.

I could totally eat some Won Ton Soup right now.

I hope you feel better soon, hun. *hugs*
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on January 3rd, 2010 10:56 pm (UTC)
No won ton soup. Not now, anyway. I still need a few more years.

Ugh! I'm sorry! That sounds awful!

I hope you get better soon.

Have lovely bland crackers and tea. And a hug.

I'm so sorry, Carrie. And you know I would have rather taken care of you than my residents, too. :(

You poor thing, get well soon! *hugs*

PS: I love the layout. I've not been around much so this is the first time I'm seeing it.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on January 3rd, 2010 10:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I just sort of wander around until I make something I like.

Poor you (and your lovely bathroom floor). I have a very strict rule about not eating leftover seafood - it's eaten the first time or it's dog food *nods* I hope you're feeling yourself again really soon.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on January 3rd, 2010 10:58 pm (UTC)
Well, frankly, I wouldn't want the dogs to do what I did either! :D

He seems to be very knowledgeable...

Oh, icky! I'm so sorry for you, woman.

Be prepared to be shocked beyond belief.... I am the same kind of 'dining out' eater you are.

Get well soon! :9

You poor thing! Food sickness is the WORST!

On a side note, is Johnny Carinos a franchised restaurant? Ours went bankrupt & the owner threw himself out a window....
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on January 3rd, 2010 10:59 pm (UTC)
It IS franchised.

How terrible for that guy.

i know.... the only reason i know that is because my old roommate worked there at the time it happened. it was icky. she said he would come in with his trophy wife and tons of friends and spend hundreds and hundreds... but i guess they didn't know how to manage it. very sad.
