Thanks again to:*drum roll* HEREDITY! *applause* Thanks to my genes, I-- (like my mom this time ((celiac's from dad)))-- needed a gum graft.  Mom said it was awful pain and not to do it.  Hers fell off anyway.

gluten free food
Tried the prairie bread everyone loves, and I'd give it 3 stars out of five.  The texture and flavor are not as good as the frozen white Kinnickinnick (Kinn)breads I eat.  (I have found out how to prepare the Kinn bread just the way I like it.  I either defrost it in the microwave or fry it in the pan.)  Anyway,  the prairie...

So the Ranger struck out.  (crowd jeers.) For date three, I agreed to go to his house to watch a DVD.  After inviting me, he warned me that women never return for another date after coming over. (Music: DUN-dun- DUNNNNN!)  He said it's because he has no...

Ok, I must confess that before I "left" the ex  unbeknowingst to him as he slept, before gathering up my gluten free food, I spied his laundry I'd folded sitting there.  I took his favorite (You know how guys get really attached to things) t-shirt from his trip to Italy and I took a Sharpie and...

Celiacs qualify for the 125 plan at work where you pretax spending!  I get to pretax the DIFFERENCE of cost in gluten free items and regular gluteny items of similar food types.  I'm about to sign up for it.  I have to get a letter from my doctor to qualify me.  The woman also told me I have to get a copy of...

My not-so-personal, so-called Life... Well, things the boyfriend was saying hadn't been adding up.  He began staying up weird hours.  He had no trouble spontaneously getting off work to go on trips with me.  His responses to "how was your day" didn't...
