I hate Taco Bell. Hate it, hate it, hate it. Hate it.

Which is why I cannot begin to wrap my mind around why I ate a Nachos Belle Grande and a bean burrito two days ago from there.  

Actually, I have a theory.  Somewhere in my crazy little brain, I seek out new and interesting ways to punish myself.  I like pain because it absolves me of guilt.  

And punish myself I did.  I have heard of this disease called dysentery.  Without going into the nasty details of it, I'm pretty sure I have it.

In other news, I've decided not to postpone my Pakistancation, despite the following:

Awesome.  If my three year old wasn't tagging along, the prospect of visiting a country on the brink of international and civil war might have actually been fun.

I would love to blog about why I'm going forward with the trip, but you'll have to wait on that. I have to use the bathroom.  

Dysentery is fun.

I don't know what to say, except that I'm worried about this trip. I don't want to sound like an ass when I say this but I can't help myself!
Is it worth it???
I mean I love shaheema and I'm already concerned with her well-being,and now there are more of you guys going. Don't get me wrong I'm all about being in tune with the mother country (ok no I'm not - I'm a friggin coconut, BUT STILL), but I think now is the not the time. Regardless thats my 2 cents. I know you guys know what your doing and how to take care - don't think I'm saying otherwise, I'm just little scared...

Can't you just delay it until Obama is in office and cooler heads will prevail?

All will be explained in a post that is not hindered by a Taco Bell mishap.

the rest of you should consider yourself fortunate that Faiqa chose not to elaborate on the 'sights and sounds' that one has had to experience in this household in the past two days! Ugggh... Sorry but I couldn't think of anything clever to say about the Pakistan trip without getting in trouble. :(

Honey, if you were trying to avoid trouble, you went in the completely opposite direction of it. You would've been safer with a Pakistan joke.
