I feel kinda funny. I have oxycodone on my desk at work today.… - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
I feel kinda funny. I have oxycodone on my desk at work today. Drugs at work?
I tried brushing my teeth this morning. No fun. Painful, bloody and unsatisfying.

I'm a little dizzy right now too.

So, I'm bored eating ice cream. (Amazing after only two days...) I've got apple sauce, yogurt, cream of wheat and pudding. Yesterday I murdered some macaroni noodles which was good. But I'm looking for some different stuff as these are all pretty dull. Though... most soft foods are pretty bland. Recommendations for some different foodstuffs?

Swelling is better on my left side today. I really hope I'm better by monday. I've got 10 hours (Yes, 10 hours) of meetings scheduled alone and don't want to be uncomfortable. Plus i have classes to teach the next day. I"d also like to shave eventually....
I fail to understand how people enjoy taking Vicodin. I can't think straight. This is making my job much harder to do. >:|
People like feeling jelly-headed?

Current Mood: crazy loopy

How about some dal (dahl???). You know, that Indian lentil soup. Soft & smushy, but would the spice be too much on raw nerves, though? You could also have some of that nice, spongy nan with it.

Mmm... nan. :) Lentil soup sounds very good right now. I'm not sure how the spice would do. Might not be so bad. Worth it. at least, for something different.

At work while like this? With ten hours of meetings? o_O

P.S. I still think someone stole and shopped one of your shots for CO.

Yeah. I don't want to be at work but a whole bunch of things came up I need to deal with. I'm becoming a crux and filter point for lots of things within my division.

What photo?

YEah, I'd suggest trying different kinds of soups too. Was gonna suggest Tom Yum (Thai) - it's probably my absolute favorite comfort food (along with Pad Thai) - but that might be a bit spicy for ya. :(

Spicy good. :) Though my ignorance holes may disagree. The jerks.
Now I want pad thai. I'm going to go nuts when I can chew again.

Out in the garage is the Happy Baby Food Mill which allows new parents (or newly de-toothed) to grind essentially anything well-cooked into a homogenous paste. It's intended to feed infants but it worked damn well for me when I had my wisdom's taken out. I made sloppy joes' (bbq, whatever) and then ran it through that. Completely homogenous tomato/meat mush.

In my world, meat shouldn't be made into a paste. It makes me queasy for some reason. This is why I'd probably hate fois gras.

and maybe jello. perhaps supplemented with vodka, if that'll make the goop more palatable.

I've never had good flan... or at least flan I've enjoyed.

Sand Soup

Sand Soup serves several purposes --

1. Dude! You're eating SAND soup?! Awesome!
2. Make you feel better when you're sick.

It goes a little something like...

- Melt about a tbsp butter in the bottom of a sauce pan on low.
- Then add some non-instant (if you can find it) cream of wheat. Cook, cook, cook on low and stir it. Eventually, the CoW will start to toast and turn a lovely brown color -- the butter will brown as well. Have some patience, this step makes all the difference and the flavor is rick and lovely. And it will smell totally different, too, when the butter browns.
- Once you get that small change, add broth to the pot. Sizzle, sizzle, sizzle as the first water evaporates. This won't be a mushy-gruel like regular cooked cream of wheat, add a lot of broth so that it's like a broth-soup with sand in it.
- Add some chopped soup-type veggies, if you want and have time for them to cook down soft -- celery, carrot, some onion, etc. Also add some finely chopped chicken(or whatever) if you have it and want to, and if your (missing)teeth don't mind.
- Season to taste. Add parsley.

Totally good. And it will fix you when you're sick... trust me.

Soup! Bread pudding! Scrambled eggs! Mashed yams! Cream cheese! Jamaba Juice!!!

People like feeling all KINDS of weird-ass shit, there's no accounting for taste. Glad you don't like it, both Vicodin and Oxycodone are highly addictive, so just keep not liking it, Ok?
abmann From: abmann Date: January 25th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Shoot. I was going to have Fox make rice pudding yesterday. I forgot.

I don't think I have a very addictive personality. I've been worried I'd get addicted to lots of stuff but it takes a lot of effort to go out and get the stuff and ten use it and then you come down. Bleh. I just don't get the people that prefer being unable to think clearly or function well. As I pride myself on both these things ahead of most anything ele in my life, I don't think I'll be getting addicted to anythin any time soon.

I love flan, creme brulee, all varieties of egg custard, really.

Vicodin was best for me when I took 2 before bed, got all floaty and high for about 4 minutes and then was out cold... I had some severe back pain and it really helped.

But you are right, I'm not into that feeling when I'm not in pain.

Enjoy your culinary adventures...

I just took the second pill for the day. The experience is a little better this time but I feel even more zombie-like. My hand and feet feel really warm. but it makes my nose itch like crazy.

i like having reason to take vicodin when i'm out in the woods on a sunny day or when i'm cuddled up with someone watching a movie trying to forget my toothache... i can't imagine trying to *function* like that. that does suck.

i was going to say.. soup mixes (i love bear creek soups a lot) and indian food but other people beat me to them. also creme brulee. what about scrambled eggs?
abmann From: abmann Date: January 25th, 2007 09:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're a little person. It probably affects you more than me. :) The second dose today was far more interesting than the first but I still fail to see a recreational use for it.

I, too was amazed at how annoyed I got by ice cream so quickly. And also by how disillusioned I was with Vicodin. Mostly, I felt shitty when I came off it - headachy, just icky in general, and dehydrated, and that's when I wanted more- so I didn't feel as crappy OFF the meds for reasons that had nothing to do with my actually pain needs!
