Too Much Time On My Hands...

42 posts in this topic

I have been rather entertained by the presence of two words that have appeared lately here. The first is "Glutard" the second being "Glutoid." These amusing little labels got my over-active imagination off and running. What are some other possibilites for labeling those celiac aliens...?

How about:

Gludiots (gluten+idiots) for those who are not only totally ignorant about what gluten is but also imperil those of us who really need to know.

Glutebots (Gluten+robot) for those who are chronically under the influence of gluten.. they have that glazed (donut) look in their eye and can't think for being in a chronic gluten induced brain fog.

Glurons (Gluten+moron) See Gludiots.. variant may have more common use in the south.. I can't be sure, though.

Glutebies (Gluten+zombies) See glutebots with the frightening distinction being they aer actively trying to spread gluten in all sorts of unseeming ways.. kind of like guys who don't wash after using the potty.

Glutots or glutites (Gluten+zealot or ite as in follower of) those who are constantly, through seriptitious or overt means, trying to get you to come back over to the other side..

Glutatives (Gluten+relative) these are the most dangerous as they are usually the most nightmarish combination of all of the above. Phasers need to be set on kill, not stun, around so many of them as they really are out to get us.

Glutistes (gluten+artiste) all those chefs and cooking show hosts who are constantly trying to make those poisonous glutens look too enticing.

Well, that's a start. Anybody else? I am sure I have missed many.

How about glunderminers or glusabs, for the folks who try to sneak gluten into you? Sabs as in saboteurs.

Funny! Got another.

Foodiot (food+idiot) Person who has no idea what is in their food. Believes flour grows on flour trees in 5 lb bags.

Fadliac (fad+celiac) Person eating gluten-free because it's trendy and cool. Fadliacs don't actually have any gluten-related health problems and can't figure out why you're so careful.

I love this game. This is great!

Glupons-- (Gluten + Coupon) Coupons that can only be used for gluten-containing food. (So of course they are worthless to me. I do trade with my Gluponer friends though for Gluten free product coupons.) :D

Glumercials (Gluten + Commercials) Commercials on TV for Gluten food.

I'd be honored to be quoted in such a high minded way...(smirk) Use mine freely if you like.

Glumercials...I like that one especially.. Having to sit through shows watching all those glumercials drives me, well... glutatonic.

I too, have noticed the terms and they crack me up. I feel like I am one of the cool kids in the cool club because I can call some a glutard and they have no idea what I just said. :)

My fav is Glupons. I am known as one of the local coupon ladies. Little good they do me now for most of what I can eat.

Gluturds who don't print glupons.

LMAO...oh the Glupons kill me. I'm forever throwing away coupons because I can't use them. Oh and don't even get me started on commercials. I rue the day when my son will ask me to buy him something he saw on TV that he can't have.

And as far as Gludiots go, it absolutely amazes me how many people really don't know things like pasta, bread, cookies, and cake are made with wheat. I mean really I didn't think it was rocket science! And I'm not even Celiac...

Glad to be a source of amusement. I sort my coupons now into glupons and Non-glupons and take the Glupons to my gluponing friends and they give me their non-glupons to use; So they don't go to waste and we both win. It is frustrating looking at my normal coupon boards and blogs though and see lots of people are all excited about a Glupon sale. This week it was Kelloggs. I don't think Kellogs makes a single safe cereal, so I didn't even bother looking at the threads, but lots of people were excited about Kelloggs. We need a name for companies that have nothing safe-- Glumpanies? No that doesn't sound quite right Glutenpanies? Glutenopolies? Yes, that's it Gluten + Monopoly = Glutenopoly. :P

My last post just made me think of another one:

Glutenopolis: (Gluten+ Metropolis) A metro area with lots of gluten restaurants and very few safe places to eat. Not to be confused with GlutenopoliEs. :lol:

How about a Glu-sty for a place that is contaminated with gluten.

Whereas Glutenopolies is more descriptive and accurate I just love the sound of "glumpanies." It paints such a vivid picture in my mind... and makes me laugh as well. Go ahead.. say it out loud.. and if you are missing a tooth on your left side like I am because of celiac it sounds even funnier if you let your cheek flap whilst saying it...

You're right. "Glumpanies" is fun to say. We can even create a tongue-twister: Those darn Glumpanies and their glutenopolies making it impossible to eat in the Glutenopolis! :lol:

Do Glutaloompas work at the Glumpanies?

Apparently not... if they did there would be more and better warnings about gluten everywhere and they would be sung to us in an amusingly moralizing tone.. Maybe the search would have to be for the golden gluten free ticket..

Brilliant idea!

Glutnosis - the hypnotic trance that the tasty gluten-filled temptations put me into when I pass by the bakery section at the store

As an alternative for Glutatives - the senseless addition of gluten (as an "additive") to otherwise gluten-free food, just to ruin my day. See Kellog's Rice Krispies, sausages, Bar Ones etc...

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
