That's really sweet, Loey :)

 

Second day in a row I wake up with eyes semi-closed by an allergic reaction. WHAT on earth is causing this? The only new thing I ate these nights was coconut butter, but I am usually ok with coconut in any form? I am so, so tired of this. As soon as I think I mastered one allergy, something new comes up. This sucks big time.

 

Glad yur startng t feel better. I would still look into other types of allergies.

 

Love,

Loey

 

Thank you Loey - and I am sorry you got CC'd. My body is in alert-mode: I think what triggered the puffy eyes was a Neutrogena wash, because soon after gaining sight again I realized that my face was burnt red and sand-paper rough. It b****y hurts. To even have facial expressions. I also have a bright, boil like strip on my wrist, where I carry my watch. So, yeah, pretty much anything I use causes me a reaction.

 

On the psillie note: I am ready to baffle my baristas once again! Known in the Heights as 'the woman with the teeny-tiny travel mug' (8 ounces), I have recently got a new mug that measures 4 ounces. I feel so cool. B)

 

I have met other scholars interested in the problems I tackle in my dissertation. Weirdly enough, they are all in cybernetics. :blink: How on earth did THAT happen?

 

Here are some thinks between cybernetics & the Romance Period. I hope they help:

Hi Loey,

 

Yep, the show title is just plain Eli Stone.  It's about a lawyer of all things.  But he i has "prophetic visions" that affect

 people around him.  Kind of fun and odd.

 

Split toes the?  Peace feet? :)

Saw this on facebook. Had to share

 

Grandmother says... Carrots, Eggs, or Coffee; "Which are you?"

A young woman went to her grandmother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for
her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give
up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem
was solved a new one arose.

Her grandmother took her to the
kitchen. She filled three pots with water. In the first, she placed
carrots, in the second she placed eggs and the last she placed ground
coffee beans. She let them sit and boil without saying a word.


In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the
carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and
placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a
bowl. Turning to her granddaughter, she asked, "Tell me what do you
see?"

"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

She
brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted
that they got soft.She then asked her to take an egg and break it.

After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.


Finally, she asked her to sip the coffee. The granddaughter smiled, as
she tasted its rich aroma. The granddaughter then asked. "What's the
point,grandmother?"

Her grandmother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity--boiling water--but each reacted differently.


The carrot went in strong, hard and unrelenting. However after being
subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had
been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior.
But, after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became
hardened.

The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water they had changed the water.

"Which are you?" she asked her granddaughter.

"When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?"

Think of this: Which am I?

Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity, do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?


Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the
heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a
financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and
stiff?

Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and a hardened heart?


Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water,
the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it
releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things
are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you.

When the hours are the darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate to another level?

So go there for and be coffee!

Thank you Loey, that's amazing! :wub: 

 

Vydor - that story is fantastic, and now I finally have a morally upright justification for my caffeine addiction. YAY! I would also add "coffee" to the survival grocery list :)

 

So... one of my hobbies is upsetting social expectations on dating websites (it started off as a joke, but I'm often considering making this into a writing project). Now, this morning I saw a loser writing this about himself:

 

"Food: The most important activity is eating. I love food. I don't date vegans, vegetarians, or people on a gluten-free diet."

 

What the effn' effe? :angry:  I wonder why you are single *facepalm*....

 

If any member of the celiac community would like to convey to this... thing... their sentiments, feel free to post your mind here.

Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave's disease (2011). It must have been a Black Friday.
Intestinal dysbiosis. Suspected damage to my vili (2012). NCGS according to my dermatologist upon seeing my post-wheat rash.

Gluten-free. Sept 2012.
Canola, almonds, soy = evil.

Grain-free, legume-free. December 2012.
No peanuts and tree nuts. February 2013.
Erb-Duchenne palsy from birth trauma.

My body is trying to kill me.

Dating things can be hilarious.  Whe we're really bored, the bf and I sit around and read each other Craigslist ads.  One guy's post started out "Looking for a woman who can read and do finances".  Dunno.....pretty high expectations there dude....

What is this snow you speak of? 50s and 60s for this upcoming week, then back to the 30s and 40s with rain/snow.

Was he looking for a date or for an accountant??? :blink:  I like the missed connections section. Sounds like a very rude British comedy (not that there's anything wrong with that from time to time).

I LOVE what you're doing on the web site. I also think it would be a fascinating paper to read. Since I haven't dated in 24 years I can only imagine what it must be like to find a soulmate in this day and age and on top of it to be gluten-free. I lucked out big time with DH but I'm married not dead (phew) so thank you young, brave one(s) for giving me a way to live vicariously "through the looking glass."

 

Love,

"Alice"
