So you all had a puhrade and left us out eh? :( (sulking face here and forever more).

How about a post card exchange? Half ya'll ever done one of dem? The art site I frequent does them every Christmas. Everyone gets a name and exchanges some kind of post card, generally something artzy/handmaid. Which can be anything, nothing fancy schmancy or bootiful expected. Postcardz aren't terribly 'spensive to mail, and for now the US post office is still in bussiness. Sew it cud b dun, I tink.

We'd need a Queen to divvy up the names for the exchange tho, as there wood be no way to fairlee do it udderwize. And a cutoff date for participation, to avoid Christmas delivery issues. If this is a turrible idear, let it be known clear and loud! So far the Queen has not approved such an uddertaking, so it may be royally schmashed, as many things are schmashed under her highnass.

Hi to Triticus Toxicome! Thanks for driving by and snortin' your toot at us! :)

Another blast from the past, in honoUr of Thanksgiving! :)

I didn't want to be the first on the 200th page since I'm a newbie here but now that it's safe to post here is something funny that my brother sent me in honour of (Canadian) Thanksgiving.

THANKSGIVING CONVERSATION THAT SOUNDS DIRTY BUT ISN'T

1. Talk about a huge breast!

2. Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist.

3. It's Cool Whip time!

4. If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst!

5. Whew, that's one terrific spread!

6. Are you ready for seconds yet?

7. It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it?

8. Just wait your turn, you'll get some!

9. Don't play with your meat.

10. Just spread the legs open and stuff it in.

11. Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once?

12. I didn't expect everyone to come at once!

13. You still have a little bit on your chin.

14. How long will it take after you stick it in?

15. You'll know it's ready when it pops up.

16. Wow, I didn't think I could handle all of that!

17. That's the biggest one I've ever seen!

18. How long do I beat it before it's ready?

(I hope this isn't too raunchy ph34r.gif but it just made me giggle, especially #15)

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

This sounds fun! I'm not really artistic but I could send a nice Plaza Lights card!

whew! That didn't make me queen! I was a very uninvolved one for a couple of hundred pages.

Speaking of safety . . ...I just signed off a new req for black-belted security. Dunno wth last administration was up to, but the head of security is saying that w/ some new 'seniority by height' rule, the union won't allow a new addition over 5 feet tall.

Arrrgh how'll I ever find a short blackbelt willing to work for virtually nothing? (At least the work's virtual too)

Anyone got any of those?

PeOter's flashback to page 201..........

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

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>

You might try "paying" a visit to Peter Jackson's HobbitTown - heck, they is even virtual people so pay will not to be issue and there's bound to be a black belt mongst them somewhere. Trouble is finding the town...

I think Ptaum is directing the question to Vincent, who might know of a certain carrot-top munchkin who has the reqired qualifications :P

But surely child labor (even virtual) would not be countenanced in Psilliville? That would send the Minister of Labor sallying forth on her high steed, cracking whips and busting heads and bums toot sweet.

    • 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.
