This week was interesting.

I gave myself food poisoning. I'm not sure of the exact culprit. I woke up in the middle of the night between Saturday and Sunday with a terrible headache, a horrible stomach ache and the shakes. I curled up into the fetal position and eventually got some sleep. The diarrhea hit around 8:30 AM, along with all the body soreness from my rigorous workout the previous day. I stayed in bed till about 3:00 in the afternoon, dosing off and then waking up whenever I needed to shift position (I wasn't moving in my sleep like I usually do because of the workout soreness) and occasionally getting up to pick at stomach friendly food or take more fun trips to the toilet.

The diarrhea cleared up early yesterday afternoon. I even managed to get out of the house and get some fresh air yesterday evening. My stomach is still feeling iffy, though, even today. At least there was no nausea/vomiting.

In other news, I've been planning vids for VVC.

This year is going to be the year of crack for me, I think. I'm going to try to make a few of my million and one movie vid ideas that I haven't gotten around to making.

Avatar (LKBV crack)
Sweeney Todd (twistedly funny crack)
Wall-E (cute crack)
Shawshank Redemption (not-sure-I-can-pull-this-off crack)
Perfume (only-three-people-saw-this-movie-so-why-bother crack)
Ravenous (more only-three-people-saw-this-movie-so-why-bother crack)
Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (experimental/artsy crack)
Lord of the Rings trilogy (this-fandom-is-dead crack)
Twilight trilogy(I-should-probably-wait-for-the-third-movie-to-come-out crack)

Of course, I wouldn't want to give everything a way. I have a few more ideas up my sleeve, which I'm keeping secret for the time being.

I made raw vegan fudge on Thursday. 3/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil, 3/4 cup raw honey, 1 cup raw cacao powder, 2 tbsp cayenne pepper. I made it using a janky double boiler I put together with household appliances (raw honey and virgin coconut oil are both too thick/solid to mix at room temperature). Next time I'll get a thermometer so I can regulate the temperature better (you don't want to heat it past 130° F, which is the temperature inside a beehive).

I used fancy Australian active UMF16+ manuka honey. The flavor is kind of ... intense. Personally I love how the fudge turned out, but I think for some people it might be an acquired taste. If I were making it for other people, I'd use a tamer tasting honey and leave out the cayenne pepper, and maybe put in some vanilla extract.

For my next batch I'm going to try different additives, like maca powder or turmeric. I might also try stirring in some chopped nuts or dried fruit.
