Todays Randomness is brought to you by, "the cocktail", the word pamphleteer • \pam-fluh-TEER\ • verb
*1 : to write and publish pamphlets 2 : to engage in partisan arguments indirectly in writings, and the number 8.

Acetaminophen 500mg

Multi-Vit 1-A-day type stuff
~toss in martini glass, shake.... garnish with love and repeat twice a day. That ain't so bad.

I just have to avoid large amounts of vitamin K in foods such as liver, broccoli, brussels sprouts, spinach, Swiss chard, coriander, collards, cabbage, and other green leafy vegetables. Avoid Eating cranberries/ drinking cranberry juice, Avoid drinking alcohol,.Avoid sports or activities that could result in a bruising or bleeding injury. Use extra caution to avoid cuts when brushing your teeth or shaving.
Hopefully dodging these minor side effects:
skin changes or discoloration anywhere on your body;
purple toes or fingers;
pain in your stomach, back, or sides;
low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes);
diarrhea, fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms;

So, no St John's wort... with a little luck, you'll be able to forget your stress for a moment or two in there.

My heart aches for your garliclessness. Come on out sometime, we'll have a big vampire party. With no contact sports.

Maybe I could chop some wood for you guys. I've always had an affinity for axe use and it's problematic foot magnetism.... if only I could find a better way to exsanguinate. At least now I know I won't experience any of that pesky clotting and can liberally pour blood out of my shoe as opposed to just letting it drip out.

I'm pretty sure the garlic is only dangerous if it's in concentrated form, as in a suppliment. But I'll have to check that out.

Just in case, you may want to stop filling your bathtub with garlic cloves and sleeping in there. Just until you find out more.
