For those of you who read my blog regularly you probably have read about my intersitial cystitis. It's a real bitch of an autoimmune disease that affects your bladder. There are certain foods I can't eat because they'll trigger a flare. If you want to know what a flare feels like just light your bladder on fire. I'm usually pretty careful about making sure food is safe before I eat it but sometimes I get careless or I'm fooled. Shit happens.
Today I was at a family Christmas party at my mom's house and I saw a giant bowl of Sun Chips. I love Sun Chips. I'll eat the plain but Harvest Cheddar is where it's at. I will destroy a bag of those. So I start eating what I think are Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips and they taste a little weird but I'm drinking some wine so I'm thinking that maybe the wine is messing with my Sun Chip palate. Then my mouth starts burning. My mouth should not be burning from Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips. This can't be good. I go into the kitchen to find the bag to see what kind of Sun Chips they are.
Let me know if you want to sponser this post Sun Chips. You can pay me in Harvest Cheddar.
Besides possibly ruining my bladder for the night we came home with some pretty great stuff. Derek got some gin and a pepper grinder from my mom and it's actually good gin because I told my mother what kind to get. I also told her to get Derek the pepper grinder because he's been wanting one. You're welcome Derek.
I got a new blow dryer, which I also told my mom I wanted. My current blow dryer is making a fun CLANK CLANK CLUNK noise. The new blow dryer is a BaByliss PRO which claims to be the "World Leader in European Professional Products".
I'd love to meet the marketing team behind this.
"Let's call it Babyliss. That will really convey our message of professionalism."
"Oooh and we should capitalize both B's, not just the first one."
"I think we're done here."
My yankee swap gift is pretty much the best thing ever!
I've named him Lux. He comes from Thailand. Derek's first reaction was "that is not going in my office!" Challenge accepted! Let's see if I can sneak it in there and how long it will take for him to notice.
