Give Me Back My Spinal Fluid

Friday's trip to the hospital was a trip to Spinal Tap City (also known as a Lumbar Puncture). Nothing like a needle in the spine to start your weekend off right. This was the second one I've had so far, and this one was much more enjoyable than the first. Mind you, I use the word 'enjoyable' here as a relative term, as in "getting hit in the face with a mallet was much more enjoyable than getting hit in the groin with a sledgehammer". The procedure itself if only a few minutes, and painless once the freezing kicks in, but can often come with the annoying side effect of constant headaches for a few days. This is due to the fact that your spinal fluid is being fucked around with, and the brain gets all pissy when that happens. So, most of the weekend for me was spent nursing headaches. Meh. They've stopped, and I'll take headaches any day over nausea, so it's all gravy.

Headaches didn't stop me from making a kick ass meal yesterday though. Thai-flavoured mussels with steamed jasmine rice (thanks to Kathryn, rice-cooker extraordinaire), and a Thai salad. My quest to become Iron Chef Cape Breton continues unabated.

Oh, and thanks to Jennifer, Kelly, and Amala for the fruit basket. Iain likey the free shit.

Finally, for those in the Halifax area, make sure to make it out to Lymphomapalooza this Saturday. The One World Cafe. 7 PM. Windom Earle. Juan Love. Hotshotrobot. Be there, square.
