I have accomplished my 'to-do' list for the day:

1.) Get dressed..................check

Everything else that gets done is just bonus, right?

You're farther along then i am. I'm not planning on getting dressed lol.

So, i'm thinking of making that cake thingy today, however i have no toothpicks to check for doneness. Could i use a knife or something like that instead?

butter knife works well. Also check the edges, they should be kinda pulling away from the pan. Middle part should spring back when you touch it lightly.

Too funny - I remember thinking why would someone have a bust as their profile pic when I was a newbie - don't think I ventured into the funny pages back then or maybe I would have got it -- I don't think I've seen the one I vaguely remember, but maybe it was Jestgar's kitty -- keep 'em coming -- thanks for the giggles :)

Hey MindWarp, so what's the deal on the 21 units? Have you taken such high load before?

I don't know if I remember anyone finishing a semester w/ that many. Maybe your system is different, but you did say semesters, not quarters. (Learned long ago to not compare my sems w/ others' qtrs)

Loved my Astronomy classes to the point I almost majored in it.

Has meandering Psillyville's Memory Lane skipped The Snow Poodles? :o

And really . ....doesn't "digital pack rat" describe everyone who's owned a computer? :huh:

(unsure if this is directed at me :blink: )

Eh, i need to take 3 semsesters with 21 credits (7 3 hour classes per week) in order to graduate by the spring of 2014. Generally we're only allowed to take 18. This semester i'm taking 19, so its not that big of a jump.

At any rate, my cake plan is canceled at the moment. I feel a bad cold comming on and i had a coughing fit whilst i was cleaning up the kitchen (had a few things left out, etc)

Lol oops sorry Shadow (& MW), I should've read back . . .. .this surfing on a phone stuff sometimes leads me to skip such steps. Or maybe this time it's the forum january molassesness.

Anyway ... .ahhhh keeping on schedule for grad & good to hear it's only a 2 credit jump.

Ooh a cool double! My anthro course would've been for non-majors, but it was fantastically interesting & a pretty popular course to boot.

I remember smiling at the time when I found I wouldn't have to take History of Western Civ after all, since all I'd ever heard was complaints about it, but in hindsight I know it would've been good for me to take back then.

Funny how confused so much of America is on what a socialist regime actually looks like.

I am in grad school, where 6-9 credits is considered a full load. I do have 3 undergrad degrees and I recall taking 19 credits more then once... but could not imagine that now! Struggle to keep up with 6! Might have something to do with not being a 19 year old bachelor any more...

Tom

I managed to string out my university years to 11, wonderful days, but you'd not catch me doing it again now! It just took me 3 years to get round to a 13 000 word imformal assignment... I get the smartphone issue :o :o :o :o :o

SIW

Sounds fun if hard work :) I did a load of anthropology in amoungst social science ane media stuff. I love the methodology side. Good luck, sounds like you've got a handle on it.

11 years? eeeeek i couldn't do that.

I started college in 1992... still in college. No serious time off (semester here or there when moving/etc). But I have 3 undergrad and almost done with 2 masters. I am planning on stopping in December 2013 when graduate... again.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
