Inui Juice

I've never liked cooking anyway

As of today, the rest of the United States will be subjected to the same restrictions on the sale of products containing ephedrine and pseudoephedrine as we've had here in the midwest for a while. Oh goody!

Fortunately, I don't need to set up a meth lab in my basement, because a couple of duly-signed-for Tylenol Sinus are all it takes to get me high. Ha! Take that, interfering, ineffectual drug warriors!

Okay, so it's not a very good high. It's more like having a serious fever without the actual fever part. I discovered that I have this reaction to pseudoephedrine years ago, when I had a bad cold and my mother gave me some Sudafed so I could enjoy the free tickets we'd scored to a production of the Wizard of Oz and not all the special effects I was enjoying were actually part of the show. I used to rely on TheraFlu, which also contains pseudoephedrine but never made me hallucinate anything, but they seem to have reformulated all their products with phenylephrine, which neither makes me hallucinate nor does anything else for me, such as relieve my congestion.

So it's actually the DEA's fault that I am feeling very very shiny at the moment.

Apropros of absolutely nothing, that icon is mesmerizing. Whenever I see it, I must stare at it for a good minute or two.
I do thar too! Of course, it's not that hard for me to be entranced by Inui ...
A gift for you
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
John 3:14-21

But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.
Luke 12:7-10

Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man comes. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he comes shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
Matthew 24:44-47

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26
