8/27/12: For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been obsessively craving all of my favorite hot and spicy cuisines – Thai, Indian, Mexican, barbecue, cinnamon, ginger, Buffalo chicken, jalapeno poppers, french fried jalapeno slices. I’ve even added chopped fresh jalapenos to my salads! It must have something to do with the fear that I might not have them for awhile after my surgery tomorrow. No food or drink after midnight tonight. I’ve stocked up on ice cream for afterwards.
