26) I have a tattoo of a vine on my ankle that I got when I was 18. I've recently had thoughts of adding to it, probably something along the lines of a flower for each family member.

27) I technically have 6 piercings in my ears, but I think 3 of them have grown in so much that I can't use them anymore. I wear earings only a few times a year anyhow.

28) I'm allergic to penecillin and possibly codeine. Penecillin gives me rashes and codeine makes me puke repeatedly.

29) I have one sibling, a brother who is 28 and lives in Vancouver. He's getting married next year.

30) I own a cat named Mouse. He was born in what is now the back entrance to my parents' house 14 or so years ago. He lives with my parents and annoys the hell out of them.

31) I have an unhealthy fascination with chocolate. If it's there, I can eat it until I make myself ill or it's gone, whatever comes first. Just ask Liam about the bridge mixture.

32) When I was little, my brother used to call me Fungus Ear. I had near-constant ear infections, and the doctor had said something at one point about it being a fungus or something. The details are fuzzy now, but my brother got the desired reaction over and over again.

33) When I was young, I couldn't say Trevor (my brother's name) so I called him Coco instead. I still bug him with it from time to time.

34) My kid tells me every day that I'm his favorite person in the world. I can't ask for much more than that.

35) I love coffee. I quit when I was pregnant with Nicholas and managed to stay away from it until I started dating Liam. This pregnancy, I've managed to keep it to a few cups on the weekends. Coffee, at a certain temperature and strength, is the deitary equivilant of sex. Mmm...coffee.

It isn't actually the codeine making you puke. You get a form of motion sickness after the codeine has been processed by your body (think morphine). Take it with some Rolaids (they cause the medication to delay it absorption) and you should be alright. Note I said should. Some people are just sensitive. Smaller doses of codeine could also work. The standard dosage is 30-50 mg but you can get 15s.

Y'know, Dyl, some people would think you were married to a nurse. I just like to think you know a lot about codeine.

I'd like to think that his alter-ego is really Dr. Purcell and he's just been holding out on all of us.

Dylan said...

Hey, it isn't the nurse, it's the constant knee, ankle and foot injuries.

Dr. Purcell, indeed.

How is that whole knee thing going? I know you were swimming to rehab it before...

Yeah, I've been playing basketball Mondays and haven't blown it out in weeks.
