So last night I was so tired and distracted that, while making scrambled eggs for the boyfriend,

I cracked the first egg into the pan and threw the shell into the garbage, and the second egg

got cracked into the garbage and the shell thrown into the pan. Yeah, he looked at me funny

for that one......

 

I resemble that...too many times...trying to stay up late to get a picture of the grunion running...should be comical as Grandma used to say....i've got three hours left...before i wake someone sober to drive me to take a picture of a fish........hey I want an A!!!!

Not knowing what a grunion is until I read further along in your post, I had

at first assumed it to be something local to you like Bigfoot or the chupa

cabra, and was very interested to see what photos you came up with!

they are little silver fish that come up on the beach to lay their eggs...sad to say we didn't see one and we checked from the tip of La Jolla to the Jetty in South Mission Beach -- (pacific beach in san diego) -- no little silver fish..hoping they choose tonight...but sadly I'll be camping in the local mountains so that I can spend tomorrow watching pro bike riders pedal up the mountainside.

 

going to turn in a couple pictures of me and beautiful empty beaches taken at 1230 and 230am pt -- along with an essay on reasons why the grunion no longer run...i'll get a couple points and that is all i need as long as i ace the final :)

 

will try to post one of the photos of me flipping off my professor with a big smile when i get back from camping!

 got this today in an email. Maybe it isn't a celiac thing after all. :lol: maybe it's just us.

 

 

 

A.A.A.D.D.- KNOW THE SYMPTOMS!
Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.

Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. 

This is how it manifests: 

I decide to water my garden. 
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
 
I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. 

As I start toward the garage, 
I notice mail on the porch table that 
I brought up from the mail box earlier. 

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. 

I lay my car keys on the table,
 
Put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,
And notice that the can is full. 

So, I decide to put the bills back 
On the table and take out the garbage first... 

But then I think, 
Since I'm going to be near the mailbox 
When I take out the garbage anyway, 
I may as well pay the bills first. 

I take my check book off the table, 
And see that there is only one check left. 
My extra checks are in my desk in the study,
 
So I go inside the house to my desk where 
I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking
. 

I'm going to look for my checks, 
But first I need to push the Pepsi aside 
So that I don't accidentally knock it over. 

The Pepsi is getting warm, 
And I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. 

As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi, 
A vase of flowers on the counter 
Catches my eye--they need water. 

I put the Pepsi on the counter and 
Discover my reading glasses that 
I've been searching for all morning. 
I decide I better put them back on my desk, 
But first I'm going to water the flowers. 

I set the glasses back down on the counter ,
 
Fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. 
Someone left it on the kitchen table. 

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV,
I'll be looking for the remote, 
But I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, 
So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, 
But first I'll water the flowers. 

I pour some water in the flowers, 
But quite a bit of it spills on the floor. 

So, I set the remote back on the table, 
Get some towels and wipe up the spill. 

Then, I head down the hall trying to 
Remember what I was planning to do.
 

At the end of the day:
 
The car isn't washed, 
The bills aren't paid, 
There is a warm can of 
Pepsi sitting on the counter, 
The flowers don't have enough water, 
There is still only 1 check in my check book, 
I can't find the remote, 
I can't find my glasses, 
And I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
 
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,
 
I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day, 
And I'm really tired. 

I realize this is a serious problem, 
And I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.... 

Do me a favor. 
Forward this message to everyone you know, 
Because I don't remember who I've sent it to. 

Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!
P.S. I don't remember who sent it to me, so if it was you, I'm sorry

re: names. I always figured my name-rememebering-deficiency was hereditary, and since Celiac runs in both my families it probably is. A common passtime with my parents/grandparents is the "oh, you know, what's his name, they're married to so and so...".

When I meet someone new, I usually tell the point blank that I'm going to forget their name in 5 minutes. If I remember the next time I see them, YAY!

(i once forgot the name of a guy I was meeting for a drink... not my finest moment...)

 

My mom had her first 'attempt to burn down the house' celiac moments (she'd called it aging moments, but I know better) a year ago when she left a pot on the stove. Thankfully the smoke smell was out of the house by the time I went home to visit. (and of course there's the infamous "gluten-free" bread fiasco...)

~ Be a light unto yourself. ~ - The Buddha

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice

- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.

I don't just forget the names of people, I forget the names of everything. Fortunately my husband is very accommodating. We were once in Costco and I was suddenly like "hey, do you remember that movie that we saw with that guy who did that thing?" Apparently it was relevant enough to the conversation because he just rattled off the name of the movie. I'm so lucky he gets me, because we have conversations like that all the time. :D
