No Haiku for this week because today is a special day. The first day back from DragonCon (and this year PAX Prime) is always caloric and monochromatic. The locals call it “The Great and Terrible Beige Day” because everything I eat is that particular light caramel color and it all wrecks havoc on my gastrointestinal tract. It’s a treat day for myself and a reminder of why I don’t eat this way all the time.

I love it and hate it and it is awesome.

In case you’d like to celebrate along with me the main diet for the day is Double Decker tacos from Taco Bell, “chicken” planks, hush puppies and fries from Long John Silver’s (conveniently located right in the same place as the Bell) and as many Krispy Kreme doughnuts as I can shove down my throat before I make myself sick. Last year that was 8 or 9.

So rejoice! The great Dragon has come and gone for the thirteenth time in my life and this was the best year yet. I dedicate the torturing aabdominal cramps that are surely headed my way to you O Con of Cons. May you sleep in peace until next we meet.
