My journal of my battle with Crohns disease. I have had Crohn's diagnosed since September 2007. In that time I've been through two surgeries, two colonoscopies, and tons of good and bad times. I want to share my experiences with this disorder and hope to hear some feedback from time to time.

This is Why I Don't Cook

Tuesday, March 16, 2010
How hard is it to boil a hot dog? You know, you put the water in a pot, and place it on the stove. Sounds easy enough right?

Well, not for me. I left it alone and went back to browsing the web in my room. Next thing you know, the house is filled with smoke and the smoke detector is blaring. I ran into the kitchen to find the hot dog nearly on fire. I tried to grab the pot, but the handle was too hot.

After frantically searching for a pot holder, I was able to get it off and into the sink. I turned on the water, just so I could hear the large sizzle sound. But even after that, I forgot to turn the stove off for a few minutes, so it was left glowing bright orange.

You can see in the video the hot is bonded to the pan. The cat's were scared of the sound and then the smoke. Now the house smells horrible. If I lived alone, I would probably starve.
