New Year's Eve

funny dog pictures - Jake knew he was under the weather when he coughed up the Hello Kitty and farted a rainbow

My New Year's Eve was spent kinda like old Jake's here... only much more monochromatic.

I had acquired a minor case of Gastroenteritis from the hospital. Several wards have been quarantined. This seems to happen every winter and some staff always end up catching it. The last time I had it was about 5 years ago and it was much worse than this year's bout! That time it was fire hose force out both ends at the same time. Good thing I had a large bucket in the bathroom!

Thankfully, this time it only lasted about 12 hours but then it took me about 24 to replace the 5.5 lbs I had lost. Almost all of that was water, of course (unfortunately...). I am now back to normal in that department. (Hey, I have never claimed to be normal in any other respect!)

So the final day of 2010 was crap (literally) but...! The first day of 2011 saw the resolution to a problem that had been making life miserable for close to two weeks.

All things considered, life is pretty good at the moment. A new decade has begun.


  1. I hope the rest of the year will be crapless. I don't mean this literally, because that would mean severe constipation.
    I hope all turns out well, Pon.

  2. Poor you! I'm so glad you are on the mend and ready for all the new year brings - lots of love and happiness.
    At least you were at home with the 'explosions'. I don't recommend an Indian hotel bathroom sans bucket.

  3. As you correctly point out, it's a new beginning. Onward through the fog. Don't forget to post.

  4. Yikes.. that does suck. Bear up lass and onward tae 2011.
    All the best...
    ps. Let's all plan for a NYC trip in December????

  5. talk about a shitty end to a shitty year, sugar! (ok, tasteless and mucho tackless, but come on, you did smile, right?)
    anywho, you are absolutely right, it's a new beginning for all of us, sugarpie! xoxoxo

  6. Lots of trotting here in the States, too (Norwalk virus, for instance). 'Tis that time... Hope the New Year is a bit more "regular" for you.

  7. Poor dear you! We have all been there, but on New Years Eve?! Holy CRAP!

    Hope you are A1 again, and here's to a healthy 2011.

    (Did my numbers come up?) :¬)


  8. I hope your health and strength are back and other problems are solved too.

  9. There's a Lithuanian folk saying that states: "Diarrhea at New Year means a bountiful year to come..."

    Well. OK. I made that up, but I'm all about creating new folk sayings to make the best of bad situations.

    Happy New Year!


So you have something to say about all this, do you?
Well, let's hear it, then!
