Did someone mention food?
please don't start this - as much as I love food, i'm sick of it at the minute - i'm forced to eat nearly 5000 calories per day (I dropped to 9 stone - 57kg from 13 stone - 82kg while in hospital)
and if I hear another developer joke about my eating, I will kill them.. (although I did like "whilest you are at that table, can you tell me your fill factor") a user experience developer looked up fill factor.... yay
cue the DBA jokes
I'm sorry to hear this Mike and I hope you're better soon.
I currently have two food dependants (not including the mrs, who's a beans on toast kinda gal).
A very good friend stays with us about one night per week. His next visit is this saturday. After years and years of quietly suffering Crohns, he had a bundle of stuff removed and some exterior plumbing switched around, losing about a third of his body weight in the process. After making a startling recovery from this, he was subsequently diagnosed with NETS, a type of cancer, and the weight dropped off him again. He's regaining slowly at the moment, and when he's staying o/n with us, I feed him with huge quantities of stuff he loves. This saturday it will be razor clams and fresh hot-smoked salmon.
The other dependant is Old Bob next door. He's 80, and completely lost his marbles a couple of years ago when he lost his mrs to dementia. We look after him - he's around every night for his dinner and at weekends, that would be lunch too. He's grateful for anything we give him, which means I get to play more than I would if he wasn't around.
Oh and Ed Wagner, if you're reading this - I tried your recommendation of bacon and it's absolutely wonderful, thank you so much matey.
