and now i shall infiltrate the print media

It really was inevitable. Not only are my sick and twisted thoughts creeping into other people's blogs, but now they're also slithering into legit print publications. Apparently, I'm quoted in today's Express, according to a friend of mine. Oh boy!

And since I'm pretty sure I have E. coli right now, thanks to the questionable status of some broccoli I consumed last night (it was the last edible solid in my fridge), I'm pretty much too busy curled up in the fetal position and crying to venture out to get a copy. I'm told, however, that the blurb is on Page 32 in the Blog Log section and pertains to my post about my Sunday morning obsession, The McLaughlin Group.

OK, I'm going to go back to crying now. And puking! (TMI? Deal with it.) I will see you in hell, broccoli!

What is the lesson we have learned today? Do not eat broccoli.

You win some, you lose some, you die some. Fame comes with pain. Cheers to a quick recovery.

You are the only person I know who has ever gotten sick from broccoli. Kudos to you.

That is weird that broccoli is bad for your health, Marissa. Maybe you should just live on cheeseburgers, Cheetos and whiskey. That could make you a colossus.

The steam-in-the-bag broccoli package may have been labled "Best if used by March 16." BUT, in my defense, it looked and tasted fine when I examined it before consuming. Apparently, it was not. So, here are the lessons:

DO eat broccoli (it is delicious, contrary to what Stewie Griffin says).

DON'T eat broccoli from a plastic bag that clearly outlines its expiration date if it is a week past said expiration date.

Also, DON'T eat said broccoli with barbeque sauce. That was just wrong on all accounts...
