Last evening, Paul and I went for a quick walk around the neighborhood. We eventually stopped at a nearby sushi place and had dinner.

I was thrilled! Paul doesn't do teh sushi, but I sure do, and he was quite happy with his teriyaki chicken, so it was all good.

Or so I thought.

Last night, I either had a VERY delayed reaction to too many beers the night before,* or an MSG attack. I suspect the latter, probably from the spicy sauce on my maki selection (even though I wiped 90% of it off!).

I'm allergic to MSG, and if I get more than a taste* of it, I get a terrible migraine, followed by violent (and I mean violent) illness. Which is what I had last night.

Fitday doesn't have a "bulemia" menu, so I'm not quite sure how to track those calories. I don't think I actually got any, so I'm leaving last night blank.

* Old Army buddy of Paul's stayed with us the night before last... I drank 7 bottles of Guinness Draught, but felt none the worse for wear the next day. Probably because I ate pretty well. And because Guinness is made by G-d, in heaven, with magic and love.
** For example, I can eat a little bit of the prepared ginger that has MSG in it, but a Dorito*** might kill me.
*** Dorito. Not duhreetoh. He might be planning my demise, but it seems somehow unlikely.
**** I suppose, in retrospect, it could have been caused by a mean fish with a grudge, but this also seems unlikely.

I'm feeling all kinds of: sick recovering

Bless your sweet little heart! I sure hope you feel better quickly. Would hate for this to mess up your day any more than it has.

I hope you are feeling better. I absolutely love sushi and eat at Koi most of the time when I am back home.

Thanks so much!

The bad thing about an MSG allergy is that the tendency is to associate the experience with the food instead of the additive. It's still hard for me to eat Chinese food... but something tells me it would take a lot of MSG to put me off my sushi :)

Oh man, and I was going to have sushi today :/

What the heck, I still will. My new slogan:

Sushi: It's what's for Lent.
