Today I had a turkey be good to yourself ready meal thing from Sainsburys for lunch. I bought it in a fit of virtue (about healthier eating, natch, not spending), but have been rewarded with VILE SWEETCORN. I swear, when I saw it ont he shelf it didn't have any! It was just cabbage, mash, and then turkey in a brownish sauce with cheese on top. When I took it out of the microwave the cheese had MELTED and the sauce had SPREAD, revealing the dark (well, bright yellow) secret within. I tried to eat around it but you can't, you can't eat around sweetcorn, it gets everywhere and ruins every mouthful. Sadness.

I have been looking at research trials and focus groups that you get paid to take part in. I was startled to see one looking for heavy drinkers to be INJECTED WITH KETAMINE. Sadly I was not eligible to even sign up for that one - else I probably would have done just to see what it's like. I did sign up for one that was about looking at nudes on a computer in a lab, but they screened me out (just after asking me how many male partners and how many female partners I'd had, so I feel judged AGAIN for being insufficiently bisexual). So I had to look at nudes by mself without the legitimisation of research. I then found one that was about depression, and wanted to give people an MRI if they would refrain from strenuous exercise for 72 hours beforehand. I have spent my LIFE refraining from strenuous exercise! Surely this was for me! Alas, they couldn't take me because I have a copper coil and therefore they wouldn't put me in the machine. (I am a bit sceptical about this, surely they MRI people with coils all the time, but I suppose this one doesn't have any therapeutic value so I can see they might be more stringent.) PAH.

Sweetcorn is the spawn of the devil! Possibly literally, it would explain a lot.

It's just so hideous! I can just about see not minding its presence, if you were WEIRD, but actively enjoying it is an fantasy beyond my imagination.

The Boy reckons you'd have to have the coil removed for an MRI for any reason - apparently they can heat up so it's dangerous to leave them in place. ETA: Ah but apparently it does depend on the exact type and what bit of your body they need to scan. But usually they're removed.

Oh, I didn't realise that! Thank you for the info :) I withdraw my scepticism. It must be quite bad if you have a coil and need an MRI, having to have that and also the pain of a coil removal (and probably re-isertion afterwards). Yuck.
