Worms 3D

So, I got some exciting news today. It turns out that two of the nine of us that were in Tanzania this summer have been diagnosed as having intestinal worms. What species, I don't know. Probably a hookworm, but perhaps some kind of roundworm?

I had a friend a few years back who loved the video game 'Worms'. Now, I am wondering whether just such a war is currently being fought in my own intestinal tract.

Wait, so you don't have worms? I can't figure this out. Either way it is disgusting. This would also mean that you blatantly ignored my instructions before you left. I'm disappointed.

The live feed isn't working for some reason. Very annoying. I just found out you had a new post.

Right, rereading it, I realize that I didn't specify that I was not one of the two.

At this point, I really doubt I'm a victim, but I haven't exactly had it checked out. I think that a couple of the others are more probable victims. I ate a lot of steamed rice on the trip, and rarely went barefoot, so my likelihood of having picked up any worms is low.

Yeah, I made the mistake of switching to the blogger beta. It made posting to other blogs using my username a pain as well...

I thought they had fixed the commenting bug. I havent switched to beta, but thought of it. you dont like it?

Apparently, they have. In my case, after it was finally fixed, I wrote a long comment on another blog, only to have it disappear when told to sign into my google account first. I should have been cautious, and copied the text before I submitted, but I was too lazy. That actually happened a second time, where I thought that I had logged in, but apparently, I hadn't. So, twice bitten, once shy.

I probably should have waited it out for a few more weeks before switching, but I couldn't help myself. If somebody puts the adjective 'beta' in front of anything to do with computers, I have to try it out ASAP. :(
