What has become of me?

Well, this week I got a special treat in the form of food poisoning.  I suspect a loaded baked potato or a (washed) fresh peach are to blame – both of which are now off my menu for the foreseeable future. Sunday was just awful – I’ll skip the details.  Monday I went into work [&h[...]
