An update:

We get to Hamburg, have a nice, big Italian lunch, and go to a soccer game. Hamburg, the home team, wins the game but actually loses (it's complicated, but I'm not going to explain it). We get back to the hotel, and my sweet wife says (can you believe this?!), why don't you go get your chicken as a snack...so I do and we sit in the hotel room and my wife and son eat their healthy crap and I munch on a chicken thigh...hot and spicy!...and a chicken breast and a couple of chips and a candy bar for dessert.

And I was in a good mood, and I loved my wife and son and everything was better in the world.

The next day, I felt...pressure...abdominal pressure...and...well....

We got home tonight. And I'm feeling a little bit better, but only after 24 hours of diarrhea.

I think it was the chicken.

I swear to the gods of all major world religions that this story is true.

You know, it is possible that your family may have poisoned you to prove a point.

I'm just saying, it seems suspicious to me.

Or conversely, it may be that your body just wasn't prepared for real food after being deprived.

The best way to find out is to sneak out right now and get a bucket of wings, and some sort of Hostess product. I'd suggest Ho Hos. Then, if you get sick again, it wasn't poison.

Good Luck.

I don't want to harp on the subject, but food has become the biggest problem in our household.

I love my wife. Everything is good. We understand each other, we support each other, and sex is also good with each other. She is a vegetarian. That's OK. BUT: she's also some kind of health nut when it comes to food. For her, food is fuel, not pleasure.

Last night, starving for good stuff and desperate for something different, I discovered a can of chili in my sock drawer. I immediately came up with a range of possibilities, but decided upon CHILI BURGERS! So I went to the supermarket and bought two microwave burgers and cooked them up with the chili and thoroughly enjoyed my meal.

But my wife p*ssed me off. She said something like, "You're getting worse lately."

D*mn right I'm getting worse lately. I'm getting hungrier and hungrier for substantive, manly food, and I live with a green ecological organic vegetarian family who thinks that wanting a chili burger is some kind of mental disorder.

I'd rather die at the age of 60 than give up the food I enjoy. What's the point of living to 100 if you only get to eat grass?

I'm in a bad mood.

Okay, seriously, that's a total relationship deal breaker for me, right there.

As far as I'm concerned, a man having access to a chili burger is an inalienable human right.

I'm pretty sure they would have put that in the constitution, but the framers ran out of room. Or they got too drowsy from having a heavy lunch. Anyway, it was an oversight on their part.

And they'll take my greasy burgers away when they can pry them from my cold, dead, pudgy fingers.

Jeff,

Your story reminds me when I used to live at my parents house. I was a smoker. Every time I walked by my dad, he'd say "You smell like smoke". Nothing would make me want a cigarette more. I'd still be smoking if I lived with him.

I tbink that was probably intended in the "pursuit of happiness" clause.

Josh...

Don't you hate when that happens?

Don't throw that camcorder away. I suspect there are still uses for it even if it won't take videos anymore.

I can't throw it away until I get my practice tape out (possible exposure). I just watched an ebay sale on the same model. It went for $165, probably what it'd cost to repair. The crummy thing is that it's digital-8 format. If I were to buy a new one I'd go for a more computer friendly media. If I do that now, I'd have to borrow someone else's camera, and have over 15 hours of conversions, in order to watch my older videos. Besides magic practice, I have a 5 yearo ld and an 11 month old, I was using it daily. GRRRRRRR!
