Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Oooooh...southern stuff!

Fixin' to

I'll be waiting with cheese on my tonge (baited breath)

I have to second the "swoled up"

chicken fried steak

Green beans (as in cooked to death with bacon)

Chocolate gravy, sweet tea...

mmmmmmm

Lynne: Don't kill your daughter! At least after the wedding she'll be someone else's problem :rolleyes:

...Over yonder

take a notion

Sunday last/next (instead of last/next Sunday)

"busy as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rockin' chairs"...

I managed to retain a little "southern", even after 10 years! :D

Have the guest book & the table placement was set with the catering manager yesterday.

Chelsea -- waiting to see what Ashley's decision is going to be . . . I talked with her pastor last week, told her WHY it was important to me to be in the front to give her away. I told her that I DIDN'T want to stand at the Unity candle while everyone was coming in . . . that, quite frankly, I am not CAPABLE of doing that -- I'd need something to prop me up! She said that she understood what I was saying, she understood WHY I felt the way I did, and that she heard the hurt in my voice. She also said that, ultimately, it is Ashley's decision. So, we'll see. I'm getting to the point that I have been biting my tongue so much / so hard that it should be bleeding! I am to the point that I just smile and say, "Oh my, how nice."!!!!!!!!! :lol::lol:

Should be some decend fodder to report afterward, though!!!

"I'll be talking atcha of an evenin" . . . another Southern thing . . . you wake up "of a mornin' " , etc.

Amen! I was fixin' to add this, but it slipped my mind: Have y'all ever said "tump"? As in, "Don't stand up in that chair, child! It'll tump over!"

Love all these southern expressions.

Here is one of my grandmother's, said whenever young people had children before marriage, "first you build the nest, they you lay the eggs'. :lol: She was Ukrainian.

Christine, glad to hear from you. I've been wondering how you are doing. That is great that you are seeing a counsellor, but $100 a session, yikes! I think I would ask the counsellor what goals will be set and met within this number of sessions.

Lynne, I think it was me that you were going to get the information for but no rush at all given the wedding.

More southern sayings: They were all over (him)(her) like flies on spinach . . . Don't know if this one is southern, though . . . as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs . . . . and don't listen to him, he doesn't (pronounced dudn't) know spinach from shin-ola. (Also, the older folks don't say "ho" --- they give it the good old long version!!!) Some of the older folks get the "swoles" -- swollen feet, etc. during the heat, and when the Good Old Southern Baptists faint during church because the spirit has taken them, "they done fell out" . . . . .

Have a good day, Rachelvillians . .. would you be mine, could you be mine, won't you be my neighbor???

Toodles,

Lynne

You're a riot, Lynne! :lol:

Yes indeedy!

Amen! I was fixin' to add this, but it slipped my mind: Have y'all ever said "tump"? As in, "Don't stand up in that chair, child! It'll tump over!"

Cissie

I've said tump before.

:ph34r: I've been a military spouse too long. I'm sitting here trying to think of all the sayings I've heard and said and I can't think of 1. :ph34r:

Megan continues to do so well. We are so blessed. On doctor said we may even get to go home today, but probably by tomorrow at least. I'll let you know as we find out more.

Hugs!

Cissie, that meal make me so hungry-but, WHERE'S THE GRAVY?!! Gotta have gravy to dump all over and some melon with it to salt and pepper and smear in it !! Cucumbers with onions in brine--yummy.

Some Southern sayings-Old as the hills--hard row to hoe--beat a dead horse--can't get blood from a turnip-!

Carla-I grew up in Ohio too, but family was all from the South. Been away for many years. You are near Cincinnati, right? Well, I have to say that having lived in Cincinncati for awhile, I think it is one of the most "southern" towns I have ever lived in!!! When we lived there, I swear it felt like I was in the deep south!! Great area. :)

Rachel, you and the ice cream are just the way I would be if I found out after a while I could eat it. I would go crazy. That is normal, I think and totally understood. If I found out I could eat gluten again, heck, I would eat a pizza every night for a month. I didn't even eat it that much before, but I sure want Pizza Hut now!!!

edit--Great news from the Megan front--I cannot believe she is coming home so soon!!!

:I've mellowed out on the ice cream a wee bit....still eating it...just not in mass quantities. You know...cutting back but not giving up entirely...like eating 8 nuggets rather 18! :o

:ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:

news flash - still waiting for the golden poops, they never arrived - - mommy FOUND her bag of nuggets, had hidden them from myself in the cupboard (yeah, that works) and Miss FAtty Fat (Annie) had found an old empty bag under a stack of magazines near my bed, or under the bed, not sure, and tore that open...... :ph34r: does this make me a terrible mother.....

reading on now.....

- Bu tI love me some spinach!!!!!!

:lol::lol: Is Miamia from the south also....I am jealous of you southerners.....

"swoled up"

:lol: We also like to say "swolt up" - - from an old Richard Pryor album......yes, it was on vinyl.....

Lisa - - OMG, I did sort of get on you like white on rice yesterday....or it seemed that way....you must all remember that I was involved in an almost all-day long sewing project, didn't even make any jewelry as had to finish this and get it OUT OF MY LIFE.....I HATE SEWING..... :angry: makes me grumpy and crazy and note that I was walking back to the computer to decompress about every freaking hour..... :lol: I got all excited about the creamed corn and got a little crazy.... :ph34r: please excuse the agitation or any perceived attack...I am calmer today as am about to install the last of the curtains, after ironing...another heinous thing.....

Christine, glad to hear from you. I've been wondering how you are doing. That is great that you are seeing a counsellor, but $100 a session, yikes! I think I would ask the counsellor what goals will be set and met within this number of sessions.

very good point, Rinne.....there should be a determined goal....and Christine, I am not sure you should be making major life decisions/life changes until you really feel good and stabilized, just a thought.

Lynnie - - been meaning to address your gaseous dog - - - try this food called Bil Jac, it's not cheap but guess what, there is NO GLUTEN, Tika the Celiac dog :lol: has not laid a stink bomb on us for months, since she's been on this food! And no more D - poor thing, I used to scrape her sometimes pure liquid poops out of the grass..... :( my long-suffering, beautiful, lymphoma surviving, Celiac dingo girl :)

Don't post here in Rachelville too often, but sure love the laughs. Wanted to add a Southern-ism. My uncle, born in Georgia, lives in N. Carolina, would always say, "Come here an' gimme sum suga' " in his really cool accent. I didn't see him much growing up, but still remember that voice. I talk to him on the phone once in a while and he still calls me "sugar".

And, by the way, is everyone remembering to "tighten, release, tighten, release..." as they sit at their computer?

I went to the health food store yesterday and was looking for my usual loaf of bread (which I did not find) when I noticed that Glutino had made a frozen pizza. They also had a pasta meal but i didn't pick that one up. The pizza was feta and spinach and I have to say that it's wonderful. Is this new or have I been going to the wrong store all this time. They're not really up on getting the newest items in. :huh:

The only pizza I've seen frozen is Amy's. I think it must be new. :unsure:

Susan, Donna...are you both registered for Stanford? Is it too late? Is there a cutoff? Are you guys going for sure? I'm assuming there will be lots of food...which sucks for me cuz I cant eat it but what else goes on there? Need more info puleeeze. I want to go. :D

Oh yeah,hear you on the sewing and the ironing !!

It's got to be in my all time top ten of most hated jobs.

Funny that,because my Mum used to make all our clothes,darn socks ( :o WHAT!! Throw them away Mother!) and made ironing an art form.She even irons my Dad's socks and underpants! :blink:

I,apparently didn't inhereit them skills unfortunately.

I'm still loving your Southern witty little lines,but you guys don't always tell me what they mean! :huh:

I am an English gal,and I don't always get it!!(silly old me)

Perhaps I should give you some Cockney one liners ?(Some cockney rhyming slang still exists in my local lingo!! :lol: )

Sometimes I can almost hear your accent in your posts! Same and maybe even more so with Taz!

My grandmother always says, "Let's scedaddle!" Which means, "Let's leave now."

Okay, I've tried to reply to this twice and every time I do someone brings me work, lol. I am registered and paid for so I'm going for sure. I can't remember what the cut off is. Here is a link to the schedule:

http://www.celiacsprue.org/conference.htm

and here is a link to the main page, which has a button for on-line registration:

http://www.celiacsprue.org/

I'm figuring I can eat a little but probably not most of what they'll have, but it should be fun anyway...I love to shop and who knows, BUMBLE BARS might be there! :lol:

Maybe they'll have gluten free ice cream! :lol:

She even irons my Dad's socks and underpants! :blink:

My brother-in-law is from the UK and while he and my sister were visiting his parents, my sister asked for the iron so that she could iron his pants, and they looked at her like she had 3 heads. She was like, "you know, his pants! They're wrinkled." and they said, "who on Earth irons PANTS?!" Bit of a culture gap there...pants being trousers in the US and pants being underwear in the UK

They thought she wanted to iron his boxers :lol:

Cor,an I fort I 'ad rite toned it down mate!! :lol::lol:

That's what my BIL sounded like when he first moved over here :lol:
