Death to Popeye

So. This morning I decided I'd get up and make myself a nice spinach and mushroom omelette for breakfast. Yum yum. Then I log on to the vast and mighty internet and see that spinach all around across the nation has been contaminated with e. coli., leaving spinach-eaters susceptible to "bloody diarrhea, kidney failure, and—in rare cases—death." Not so yum! At any rate, I'm not really worried, seeing as how I had already eaten half the bag a week ago without incident and I tend to cook my spinach pretty well, but on the off-chance that things take a turn for the gruesome, I'll be sure to do some fantastic e. coli blogging, so stay tuned...
