Alas, there is a thing as Too Much Garlic.

I went to San Francisco for a weekend immersion Irish language course AND to visit my best friend, Kim. Kim took me to The Stinking Rose, a garlic restaurant just on the edge of Chinatown.

With the basket of bread, they brought out minced garlic soaked in oil to spread. I had garlic rabbit and garlic ice cream. It was all delicious.

But evidently there is a point at which my body rebels at the sheer level of garlic I consume. I was up with severe, painful gas cramps all night long…

And then had a cross-country flight to Florida the next day. Flying makes gas worse.

I am SO glad my lovely seatmate for the trip fell asleep shortly after take off because my body’s reaction was HORRID and SMELLY the whole five hour flight.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
