Technical interlude

My bloglines are all 'effed up. I am missing some posts from some of you, and bizarrely many other blogs have reissued old posts I have already read.

So my absence isn't on purpose....I currently have over 1000 posts to read, but really probably more like only 100? I just can't find the new ones in amongst the old? Am I the only one this is happening to?

Or is could be the upset stomach and nausea that I am suffering from. I'm sure it's not a symptom of anything except the meal I had yesterday at a lovely restaurant. Normally one of my favourites, it's a French restaurant with a beautiful yellow decor and windows filled with sunshine.

I had fabulous fresh hot baguettes; then seared tuna on a bed of avocado to start, cassoulet for my main course, and mango and passionfruit sorbet for dessert.

Fabulous meal---until I felt sick and was in the bathroom all night. I am too tired tonight to think.

And my stomach feels to horrid to sleep. This can't be the meal's fault, right? Please? It must be some virus I caught by accident?

Oh, and to the new lurkers who are hanging around? Your IP addresses are making me paranoid, especially the government ones. If you are a fellow infertile, okay...if you are watching me and monitoring what I say for your department communications strategy....uncool.

Delurk, I don't bite even when I am bitchy and tired. But I am another paranoid psycho according to some people, so maybe I should live up to my rep?


  1. Well, the meal sounds yummy - but I'm sorry you are sick! That is the worst! Hope you feel better!

  2. The meal sounds amazing. It couldn't be what is making you feel crappy. It just couldn't.

  3. Hey Aurelia,
    Don't have a government IP address, just delurking to tell you that I hope you feel better! Sounds like a stomach bug to me. I just had one in July and it was miserable. Nothing worse than stomach pain.
    Here is to a speedy recovery!

  4. Causation or correlation? ;-)

    My vote is for random correlation - such a fabulous meal can't be the cause of such gastrointestinal distress.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  5. Hmm, I'm a new visitor - not a prior lurker but didn't want you to get any further paranoid. Sorry to hear you're not feeling 100% - that really blows when that happens at one of your fave spots. If you can stomach trying their food again in a few weeks I'd say go back just to prove to yourself that you caught a stomach bug somewhere else.

    Keep hydrated!

  6. Hi Cate & Anns, thank you for delurking! Just because it's nice to know who is out there.

    The govt people who are freaking me out are both federal and provincial, and they could send an email, it wouldn't kill them, y'know?

    Anyway...back to the peanut gallery.

  7. Oooo! Bad timing for food-related nausea! Good luck with that (I'm at the end of a 2WW loaded with symptoms and feeble attempts at remaining Zen -- you have my sympathies).

  8. My Google Reader is messed up to. It's highly annoying.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  9. I am officially unlurking. :)

    Hope you feel better very soon

  10. i like your strategy for getting the lurkers to come out. i may steal it.

    i'm sorry you aren't feeling well. :((
