Question: I've been reading your column for about a year now, and I'd have to say that last week's Ask Ausiello was pretty much my favorite! Good scoopin'!

Answer: I hope that means you'll cut me some slack with this week's column, which I cobbled together at home on my deathbed. I don't want to get overly graphic here, but you remember how 24's Edgar looked shortly after he collapsed from that nerve-gas exposure? That was me Sunday night. I'm still waiting for all the tests to come back to get my official diagnosis, but doctors have narrowed it down to the bubonic plague, the Smurf flu or a poisonous veggie burrito. Pray for me.
