I had bacon with my eggs this morning and actually had pork chops this evening for dinner. Both were delicious. ;-D

From what I know, you can't catch swine flu by eating pork.

While we're on the subject of pork, I had some salt-and-pepper pork chops the other night. It's pork chop marinated in a salt and pepper rub, very lightly battered, and deep fried for a short while and finished with a sauteed green pepper, onion, and chili pepper garnish. Awesome. ;-D

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

The swine flu outbreak in Mexico may be considerably smaller than originally feared, test results released there on Friday indicate.
Of 908 suspected cases that were tested, only 397 people turned out to have the virus, officially known as influenza A(H1N1), Mexican health officials reported at a news conference. Of those, 16 people have died.

Damn. I think this might hamper the chances that Swine Flu: The Movie will make it to theaters. Apocolyptic feature of the week on Sci-Fi (Syfy?) is the best we can hope for.

Well that was anti-climactic. Guess I'll have to wait for the next great pandemic to use my new bubble suit. :-t

Are pork chops and bacon on sale at the grocery? If so I'm going grocery shopping in the morning because they are delicious.

The local high school down the road just shut down for 2 weeks due to a student who contracted the swine flu.

I would love to get two weeks off. I doubt we'd even make the time up here in NY due to the Regents Exams...
