Hi Richard :D

Hi all :)

Wow, I never imagined 200 pages of...of...of whatever you might call this place that we fill with random acts of silly-ness. Congratulations to our very own Princess Bev-DAWG on proving that the world isn't flat...there is life after page 199. Hoo-Bah!

I didn't think I was hearing the twirling of tassels btw, my ears were ringing, but i didn't put 2 and 2 together until just moments ago... :o

For the tassels to sound at the pitch I was hearing, some tassel-twirler musta been rockin' the house! (that or the tassels need some oil :P ) or ball bearings...everything is ball bearings these days...

keep up the Celi-ness

Bev, breaking through the 200 barrier is colossal. I believe that you should not be simply the Princess Sillak, but the Right Honorable QUEEN. We should take it to a vote. But when page 300 looms up ahead, your crown goes up for grabs. I am now officially tabling this motion. My fellow subjects?

Yes, p300 should coincide w/ a coup. (Which doesn't sound like soup, does it soup-sie? :lol: )

But I feel somewhat ineligible for the crown when the time comes. (Reminds me of my permanent non-voting status on OMG. Forever the suffragent)

King Richard truly cannot be supplanted, and I'll pass on being Queen, regardless of my proximity to San Francisco. <tho I have been hit on more than a couple times. I'm not sure you ladies can know how disconcerting that is. At least unwanted advances in YOUR direction involve someone wanting to put something somewhere it's intended to be>

:P

Perhaps if I'm blessed enough to turn the page to 300, there's a lordship vacancy?

I am very curious to know if anyone else, anywhere, pays attention and actually noticed when page 100 was hit, or is Tom alone in his hyper-observance? Man, I am very lucky if I notice new emails appearing, or the laundry baskets overflowing, or the smell of rotting food in the fridge...but those little page indicators turning? :rolleyes:

:lol: LOL Emily, I just know because I'd gone back to try to gauge the ramp-up of the soy-free brain. The OMG thread proved more useful tho. My 1st TickleMe day was jun11 (Bbay of *both* brothers btw :) ), and I'd pretty much fully ramped by then. (Can't deny that reading back was hilarious the 2nd time thru also tho!! :lol: )

Annnnnnnnd let's see - my pocket makes a cool sound when email arrives; my laundry basket sits in plain view; I can - no kidding - smell about-to-rot food that won't even look or smell like rotting food for another DAY OR TWO!!!! (Happened at mom's - told her that her fridge had "something bad . ..cantaloupe maybe" and much later she was amazed I could know so soon.)

THis is a cute e-mail I got today, thought I'd share since so many here seem to be cat and/or dog lovers:

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.

Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other

dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in

the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your

food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack Beating

me

to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall

faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about

this. Do not think I will continue

sleeping on the couch to ensure your

comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep.

It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to

the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out

and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing

but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by

some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not

necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under

the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door

I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years -- canine or

feline attendance is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I

cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on

our

front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1. They live here. You don't.

2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture.

(That's why they call it "fur"niture.)

3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is

short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: In many ways, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

1. Eat less

2. Don't ask for money all the time

3 Are easier to train

4. Normally come when called

5. Never ask to drive the car

6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends

7. Don't smoke or drink

8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions

9. Don't want to wear your clothes

10. Don't need a "gazillion" dollars for college.

And finally,

11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

Congratulations Queen Bev . . . (hey, we don't have to do what she tells us, do we? :huh: It's just honorary, right? She just gets to wave in parades and break bottles of champagne on Susie, I mean dinghies, I mean boats/ships, right?)

I taught my big boy cat to get his treats by standing up and taking off the edge of the counter, which is adorable, but it wasn't quite as cute when he reached up and put his big furry paw on my rice cake with cream cheese.

Okay actually it was pretty cute.

Smashing a FULL unopened bottle on a dinghy( :lol: ) is a christening, but an appropriately opened and enJOYed bottle can only be a soozyening!! :lol::D

P.S. BEV!!! I gotcha something at the airport. See new avatar for preview.

(I'll leave it in the Gab/Chat lobby.)

P.P.S. I still gotta read p201!!! Such prolificity!!

Wow...this thread is developing into a palpable realm all its own...an empire with King, Queen, fifes, serfs and duchesses, many court jesters, (hmmmm...me....I could just be the slattern in the alehouse)....I think we should break into a huge virtual parade, with tassle-twirlers leading off, our Monarchs in fine livery, Lord Tom piping everyone in with his sax (could you manage something regal-sounding on a medieval hunting bugle, Lord Tom? Just for this event?) Tostito eaters and a fine yeti would bring up the rear. So regal...I wish we could parade all through Celiac.com! Just like the Santa Claus Parade, up and down all the threads and forums!! :lol:

oh 'tis surely Bev.....or maybe Nikki? As for me, I am tassel-less today, but my breasts DID get some attention (in the form of the doctor's exam and PAP today :ph34r: ) :lol:

...OUCH!!!! :o ....I think a loose tassel flew off into my eye.......manic tassel twirling going on

...but WAS it a tassel, or a tostito???? :lol:

JULIE - excellent on the cats and dogs. and SO true.

She just gets to wave in parades and break bottles of champagne on Susie, I mean dinghies, I mean boats/ships, right?)

She may SOMEtimes tell us what to do, but only if she plies us w/ mojitos, tostitos, cosmos and tassels all our own. This would all be done within direct vicinity of a trampoline, also. :lol:

Yes, susie accepts christening of champagne bottles - full, mind you - on the dingos - - - oops I mean dinghies.

speaking of dingos. Tonight in spanish class, we are to give a small presentation, with photos, describing our families. Yup, I will be talking about teh dingos. :lol:

I just burst out laughing--all alone in my house, like a fool :P

:lol: I do it frequently. The girls don't even notice any more. Oh - one more native american name for me: Laughs with Dingos! :P

She drinks them first!!!! (then smashes them over Susie :P )

no *I* drink them first. We both get smashed. :lol:

So, I'm reading Emily's post and I snicker. My son who was in the room asked why was I laughing. I said I read something funny. He wanted to hear it. I told him that he wouldn't understand. He said he wanted to hear it anyway. So I read it out loud. Then I asked him if he thought it was funny. He said "Well, it had some funny words. Now if it had burrito eater in it, it would have been funny." :lol:

So Sarah, can you eat a burrito in the parade because apparently the Tostitos aren't funny?

Well, yes! Whatever invokes the most mirth...if burritos are funnier, then I decree that we SHALL have burrito-eaters in this parade (Ho...quite a bit of power being assumed by me, the lowly alehouse slattern, what?) After all, it is the Sillyak Empire Cavalcade. Anything goes.

The excitement is truly building...can you just hear the mumbling throughout the forum...on OMG, through the related disorders threads, into the technical section and through the Meeting Room--"hey...you guys hear what's goin' on over at Tickle Me? I hear there's some kind of a parade starting up...what do you think that means?" :lol:

We need to have Canadian Karen bring her Altoids car into our parade. :lol:

No, I'm not elaborating ... but anyone who was in Rachelville in the summer of 2005 will know about this vehicle.

    • A new study confirms a link between intestinal viral infections and celiac disease. View the full article
    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best
