Ecch – that must have been poisonous! –more–

Since consuming a misjudged sossie at a BBQ last Saturday, I’ve been suffering from a stomach bug, causing nausea, sweating and the occasional vomit (never fun). On top of this, I spent Monday to Wednesday in Serbia on a work trip.

The result — I’ve managed to miss the entirety of ApacheCon EU 2006 in Dublin. I considered dropping down to catch the end of it this morning, but had to abort the attempt due to a bout of in-transit nausea.

All in all, a pretty miserable week. :(

Update: here’s something vaguely uplifting — a cover of Europe’s ‘Final Countdown’ in Khmer.

Update 2: wow, that little stomach bug has been wreaking havoc — over the weekend 3 more people laid low in our social group. sorry all…

    I would happily have gone in your place Justin. Next time please post a reminder, and I’ll pop up with some more lovely barbequed food! ;)

    Well, wish me luck because today is America’s “We are free! Let’s eat meat!” day, and we are going to Liz’s for the traditional bbq. Actually, not so traditional, since she is making korean bbq!

    Bad luck with the bad food. Common advice with new borns is “9 out of 10 times, it’s wind”, and the same holds in some form for adulthood – as I’ve found with adult discovered intollerance to dark foul (duck, goose, and thanks to my local pub’s glorious snack menu, ostrich). Two tactics which work for me: work to relax your stomach muscles – no matter the OMG feeling – a little like quelling hiccoughs, and second, find a decent Belgian live yeast beer – taste is fantastic, and the yeast seems to restore gastric order. Oh, this is a few months late – but maybe useful.
