Smackl is auditioning for the middle school jazz band today . . . he's not convinced he wants to do it. Why you might ask? . . . Too hard? Doesn't like Jazz? No, it's because practice is BEFORE school. I told him he would get up at the same time and just eat breakfast in the car on the way there. He's not convinced. Chances are he won't make the cut anyway. This is the first year he's eligible to even try out and they don't take very many kids.

Guess who made the cut? . . . must have been that extremely large donation that hubby and I made to the Performing Arts Department. :P

I think you need to spell the whole thing out, rather than being Ms. c.c. -- wrong connotation :rolleyes:

Oh, and somebody should probably warn Nickers - it's about time for her boiler to erupt again. :blink:

So I just thought of a funny-cute story I haven't shared. My parents were on nursery duty one day for church, and only one little 3 year old boy was in there, Gabe. So my dad picks him up and takes him over to the window where he heard a helicopter, shows it to Gabe, and asks him, "Where do you think the helicopter is going, Gabe?" (Keep in mind this little boy ADORED my father) So Gabe replies, in the most adult, DUH tone you can possibly imagine, "The AIRPORT."

Stupid adults..... :lol: :lol:

Here the OSU marching band making their feeble attempt at marching straight and playing music at the same time. They even had to get a horse involved to help them make some headway.

OSU Marching Band Games

I recognized 3 or 4 games but I think there are quite a few more I didn't recognize. Anybody else know what they are? 9 minute video, with music of course.

I took that as a challenge . . . and brought in my 11 year old expert (Skeeter). My 13 year old expert (Smackl) is in the middle of Spanish tutoring.

This is what Skeeter has come up with:

Space Invaders

Pokemon

Pikachu (a Pokemon character)

Tetris

Mario Brothers

Super Star (from Mario Bros)

Mario

Halo

Zelda

Epona (the horse from Zelda . . . way cool, by the way)

Bird Guy (from Zelda. . . not his official name)

Bowser's Castle (from Mario Bros)

PacMan

GAME OVER

What else you got, GeeEfff????!!!!

Heck, he beat me all to crap.

I had Tetris, and Pac Man, Halo ( cause they speiled it out), and I thot Space Invaders and Pong, but I may have been imagining those ones. I was expecting to see Bio-shock, but didn't catch it if it was there.

Geez, this is hard stuff! Game over for me tho, Skeeter is the weener! :)

Patteigh's got a bunch of (big-thumbed?) guys up in her bedroom, getting gluteny crumbs all over everything.... . ...this is likely a fantasy of many women.., . ...not celiac women, mind you -- but those with properly functioning immune systems.....

In a deep, breathy voice... .. ....."C'mon, baby... . .. ...gluten me.. . . ...here, now....don't stop. . ......"

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
