Food Poisoning

Monday was Memorial Day here so I had the day off for once since the bank and the dental office I work at are both closed. We were going to have a BBQ at my in laws but my mother in law wasn't feeling too good so we all decided to go to the the chinese buffet at the restaurant not far from their house instead. After lunch we went back to my in laws and watched the Chicago Cubs game on tv. We were there until about 8PM and when we left, I was feeling a little hungry so we stopped at the McDonald's on the way home. I ordered a McDouble and a couple of apple pies and devoured it as soon as we got home. After spending some time playing with my boys I fell asleep at about 11PM.

At about 2AM I woke up with a cramp in my tummy. At first I thought that maybe it's my normal monthly cramps but as I lay in bed, my tummy started to feel & get more and more bloated. Soon after I ran to the bathroom and threw up everything that I ate that day, the chinese food as well as McD. Sammy was so sweet that he came and sat beside me on the bathroom floor as I heaved over the toilet. He kept looking up at me with this expression that says, "Are you okay, Mummy?"

I thought that after that I would be okay but boy was I wrong. I kept threwing up for the rest of the night until about 6AM when I thought I don't have anything more to chuck. Since I am the only teller opening I knew I couldn't call in sick so I took my shower and left for work at 7:15AM. I was afraid that I was going to threw up at work, I didn't eat or drink anything except for water all day. I thought that I wasn't going to make it thru work but luckily I got off at 2:30PM... I went home and slept the rest of the day...

So, that was my little adventure with food poisoning....

Frost Nixon

We saw the movie "Frost Nixon" last night and really liked it. It was about the interview former president Richard Nixon (Frank Lagella) did with David Frost (Michael Sheen) after he resigned from the highest office in the US.

The movie mixed in actual footage of the interview and I thought it was very interesting. Of course, when the original interview happened in '77, I was quite young (6 yrs old to be exact) and did not have any interest to know about politics (not that I cared much now either). It was interesting to learn about the back story of the interview, how it came about and what David Frost go thru to get that interview aired. I do recommend you watch this movie....

Mummy, there's a giant mouse after me!

I got off from work at 6:15pm this past Thursday. As always, I try to take the shortest and fastest way home so I reached home in about 10 minutes. Tiger was already waiting for me by the back patio sliding door. He jumped up as soon as he saw my head popped up from behind the wooden gate and started meowing. A few seconds later, Sammy came by the door too to greet me home. My feeling of exhaustion always melts away when I see my 2 boys greet me when I get home ;-)

Sammy & Tiger are indoor cats so they are rarely out of the house much less out of the back gate. Once in awhile I will let them go onto the back patio so they can "explore" a little. Tiger normally would go straight to the little patch of grass that we have and start eating them while Sammy will explore the flower bed we have. He normally checks the bird feeder & birdbath we have to see if there is any birds lurking around.

Well, I let them onto the patio when I got home on Thursday. I left the patio door open while I cleaned their litter box and took the trash out to the big garbage bin in the parking lot. As I was walking back from the garbage bin, I noticed that Sammy had ventured out past our gate and was checking out the front of my car. He kept walking along the pebbled boundary of the carport and came up to a car parked 2 spaces away from mine. Up to this point, he was not paying attention to the cars that were parked. He looked up and jumped back really fast and ran back to our gate. He stopped and looked back at the car then to me and gave a loud meow and ran into the house. I was laughing so hard that I almost peed in my pants.

Sammy got scared coz the car that he happened to look up at was a yellow VW bug that the company Truly Nolen uses so it was suped up to look like a mouse. He thought that he was face-to-face with a giant mouse ;-)
