Thanks for the hint about candy corn and peanuts, bigdog. Sort of sounds like a Payday candy bar -- which I bought a bag of, along with a bag of Almond Joy, in the hope (which still springs eternal) that at least one little kid would grace our doorstep tonight sporting a costume to bring a smile. Nope. I can't recall now how many years it's been since anyone came. It's sad for us, but I guess safer for the neighborhood kids, who were probably at church- or school-sponsored Halloween parties. Dunno. We never hear.
We do happen to have two small bags of candy corn (one of the new caramel flavor variety) that I picked up from CVS in a weak moment a little while back. Haven't opened them as I realize they're pure sugar, and I really shouldn't eat them. But hmm...we also have some unsalted Virginia peanuts (the BEST ) in a can, and tomorrow maybe I'll try just those couple of pieces of the corn with the peanut. Can't hurt too, too much if I keep it to a bite, I guess.
So sorry you guys are nauseous - that's such a miserable feeling! I hope relief will soon follow for both, but somehow I can't imagine knothead's gonna try pizza and beer anytime soon. Sea, you're a braver man than most, with that combo on a nauseated stomach!!
I'll just add that I sure wish Mrs. Sea didn't have to leave you to make the trip to Florida.
