Nick old man!!!

You went thru that stuff as though it was cornflakes...
You left them stumped you know that..? They gave you a frigging
bowl and you just gobbled it up and a then few glasses and you 
downed those as well... all within the first *#@! hour!!!!
They never had someone pull a stunt like that, let alone a white guy...  
Of course, you left the galaxy for about a week and you didn't know 
any of us when you came back, for over a day you didn't even know 
your own name... I'll never forget that, looking at you and seeing 
someone who's just landed back on earth and is waiting to pick up
his identity.... 

Those were the good ol' days.. ok, maybe not....

Btw, I heard that one can take rootbark rectally... I presume it's not the
pieces and bits but some kind of enemaic concoction... on one hand, this 
apparently bypasses the liver but it's supposedly more powerful and no 
nausea nor throwing up...

Any recipe you can impart?


p.s. I hope this is cool, I'm posting a very small jpg from our first night.... I'm the one at the
far end...
