On a related note, our clement bayarea weather takes a 5 day break tomorrow.

...His Highness stated rather chalantly. .. .... :rolleyes:

In honoUr of the admirable efforts & all-around eptness of The Ripper & cohorts in the production of Woody Allen's Don't Drink The Water [ohbummeritwontshowimg]http://www.facebook....elevant_count=1

YAY! Thanks for the plug, Ptaoughmnn! Jeez, I wish the City of Ottawa were on here. . .. I'm getting a bit phreaked out about ticket sales....we've sold enough to all shows to have broken even, but I wake up every night covered in sweat, thinking of all the kids standing behind those big, velvet curtains, and they slowly part...... the lights come up, and they find themselves looking out at a crowd of thirty people..... .. . :( . .. . :unsure: .....

If the Psillllyville Royal Dictionary did, in fact, get left behind in the mad retreat to Psillyville 2, methinks it could be recreated. If we each contribute one word per day, and put someone (not me, she says quickly) in charge of the compilation thereof, should be done in no time. We already have two words today, ept and clement in nonalphabetical order. I will post my contribution shortly.

...Must think about this....

When you're on stage the lights are in your eyes and you really can't see past the first two rows. Just put yourself in charge of seating so's you can set the stage for a great audience look.

This is so true. It is amazing how little you can see from the stage. Often you can not even hear the audience that well. Really helps if your the kind that is nervous in front of crowds.

The stars are promenading down the red carpet as we speak, and Peter Jackson has gained weight again as he always does during filming. And I don't believe I will go watch this one either :rolleyes: Ya see, I is not a real fan of special effects that look like special effects, and my attention span is longer than that of an 18-year-old and I don't like alll the choppiness of virtual movies, and bah humbug and all that jazz............ now Jazz, there's something I could get excited about.....

Well, that kid's saving grace will be if he ends up a six-foot two, 250-pound linebacker on the school football team. Hashtag will work, there... . . . ..but if he's a scrawny little mathS nerd...... .. ....oh, dear... .. . . ... <_< ...

We had a neighbor that named her daughter Precious. When her daughter was a teen, she went to court and had it changed to something like Michelle or Karen.

Okay, here's a way to highlight the gender equity pay gap:

Coffee will cost 10 per cent more for men than for women at Wellington's Victoria University Law School campus this morning.

(Ho Hobbit warm fuzzies left over from last night :P )

My stepdaughter went to school with a kid whose last name was Case, so of course his mother named him Justin. But the bad part was, every time she'd take him somewhere she would announce in a VERY loud voice, "Just in case you were wondering, Justin Case is here!"

The kid is grown up now. I wonder if he even speaks to his mother anymore.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • 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.
