Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

HI Mango! I see you! It's just Mango and me at this late hour - er, for her, guess she's a whole day ahead or something crazy..... :blink: How is that job with you stuck in the room by yourself?

Did everyone go to bed.....

Well good night, dear ones. Off to do some reading in bed and get the kind out of my back. Where is our physical therapist??

xoxo to all - -

no red alerts today??? ;)

Hi! Now I'm all by myself in Rachelville :( . I'm glad the citizens of Rachelville could keep me entertained today while I was working LOL.

It's 4:31 pm here where I am and everyone else in Rachelville has gone to sleep I guess. Good night :)

Hi Meredith.

I came back....I was trying to clean up my mailbox so it won't overflow and send back rejects.

When do you start your job again? Have you done much sightseeing outside of the main town?

Ok...so The Dave has been in RachelVille...oh...maybe around 24 hours now.

So far he has violated the "must wear clothing" rule....poisoned our Geese with gluten and Auxigro and decided that he will not follow rule # 1 (which states all residents must be gluten free).

Cant wait to see what tomorrow brings. :rolleyes:

Ummmm....Boss Henry??? :lol:

Those two words just dont seem compatible to me...as Susan would say....

I'm....scared....hold....me... :unsure:

OK Rachel, What time does he get off so I can be on Mother Hen patrol. I'll expect a report during your lunch so you can check the schedule.

:lol::lol::lol:

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I started my job yesterday. It's just a temporary position. I'm staying in the CBD and the office where I'm working is out in the middle of nowhere so I get to see lots of stuff during the bus ride here LOL.

:lol: Not surprised about that! We have been quite gabby lately.

Ok ....no need to call the OBGYN yesterday...she called me while I was at work. Couldnt pick up the phone since I was busy at the time. Her message said "Nothing to worry about. Nothings changed...can you call me back tomorrow at my office tomorrow." That was all it said...I'm thinking this means the cysts are still there??? Not really sure exactly what she meant by nothings changed. I'm assuming its the cysts though....either that or the alien baby is still wreaking havoc and they couldnt see anything?? If that was the case though I think they'd have said something that day....but on that day the tech seemed as if all was normal. Nothing like what was on the OB's face when my intestines were dancing all over the place.

Will find out today.....my plan is to still to get them removed if they are still there.

She purposely had the ultrasound done right after my period (sorry guys) so if the cysts are still there obviously they are not dissolving like they should.

Celia.....what if you were right along and the cysts are causing these crazy sensitivities???? Good googly moogly. :blink:

Oh....I dont think I'll be staring longingly at the Yoplait yogurts as I stock them anymore...matter of fact I'm pretty happy I got sick and cant eat them!! :blink:

This is what I woke up to this am...The first thing I saw on my screen....

Will wonders never cease???? This kind of info cant be good for Yoplait or any of the other foods listed...

I cannont BELIEVE this one though.... :blink:

GROSS!

On a lighter note and with less scientificness....being the animal lover that I am I thought this was just the cutest thing. :)

I saw a program about baby pandas once....they are soooo adorable....although these ones are not "quite" at that point yet....not really looking "pandaish" yet.

I'm speeeed reading...catching up fast! Only 4 pages back now.

I'm replying to multiple posts (learned this from The Dave)

Glad the Village Idiot is good for something :rolleyes:

LMAO...

It took me awhile to catch on to this...

And just what are you implying Mr. Not my Boss??

At 6 am I am busy greeting customers and at this point I have no use for an iPod as our customers are my only priority. Don't you know this?? Sheeessh. :rolleyes:

Ok....so I need to wrap my mind around this too. :blink:

How is it that she watches Bounty Hunter and yet has never heard of Brad and Angelina??? :unsure:

Ummm...yes. And I'm STILL not caught up. I simply asked the Rachelvillians to slow things down and several people seemed to *think* about it...but yet went on to add about 15 more pages! :o

Shhheeeesh....my own cult farm has gone wild.

Jersey...I sure as heck did! I walked right past those darn gluten crackers that are disguised as rice crackers! I've learned my lesson! I'm never touching those nasty things again!

Besides I have like 3 packages of them at home still. :ph34r:

YAY Mango!!!!

Yeah...me thinks the geese have been slippin a bit. <_<

Cissie what is wroooooong with the geese??? :huh:

LMAO!!!

OMG Chelse. :blink:

I'm tryin to imagine what this could possibly be about.... :unsure:

OH Gaaaaaaawd I'm being robbed of my emotions again!!! :angry:

Dave, welcome...we needed more guys here.

As for the french, I am glad the Canadian Gov't makes us learn it to enter public service. (hence the job here in R-Ville)

Just wanted to check in. Have to get ready to go to work and take DD to day care. Will try to chat later.

Talk to you all soon.

Yea not too exciting.... got 2 puppies on Sunday though! Very cute...10 weeks old, brother/sister, Golden Retrievers! No pictures on the computer yet :(

That's exciting....company for the Dingos! :) I love puppies and dogs...

still reading....

Watch that Dave, you are going to give Bev and some others

COLON ENVY

:lol::lol::lol:

Surprised so many people know French on here....or some of it anyway..... I always figures Spanish would be the more obvious choice (well...especially for us here in California!)

Except those of us who took SIX years of Spanish and still can't speak a word of it.

Good googly moogly, still reading...

Omg, Rachel, you will appreciate this story -Remember the little pond I was going to put fish in? Well, I did put some fish in-coincidentally their names were (notice WERE) Jean-Claude, Patrice, Lisette, and WeeWee.

Sad, sad story it is. I was so excited and put them in their new home, with water temp. just right, chlorine removed, food, nice glass baubles in the bottom and to my horror, the next day found them all dead. Stuck to the bottom of the pump!!!! They were sucked into the pump that the fountain flowed from!! They are now fertilizer in my flower bed. Alas, the circle of life...... :blink:

:o This (odd as it may be) made me laugh, you relocated them, lol!!! :lol::lol::lol:

For all my joking about relocating things...I actually love animals too! :P Cute picture in an only-a-mother-could-love sort of way, lol. :lol:

well donna I offered to be the official town weight taker- I'll take any extra weight anyone wants to get rid of - but andrea never made it official on the list

I would gladly give it to you...it's only 10 pounds though, but I'd give it to you in a heartbeat! :D

All caught up...now I have to work...then have to shop for more beads to make more bracelets....30 isn't enough. :ph34r:

Grr. Had a nice long post and lost it <_<

Anyway, I am j'aime-ing all this french. I took 6 years of it, and need to brush up for my culinary training...

I've taken two languages since then, greek and asl, so they all run together :blink:

And Rinne, you don't speak french... you forgot the pas. Je ne parle pas francais bien! So confusing sometimes...

Andrea - Keeping up on your languages is what babelfish is for :P

Rachel - Eww about the food additives. Gross. Although, many yogurts are colored by beet juice, I think Stonyfield is...

The aflac guy...well, he liked to imitate the damned duck, obnoxiously. He's also the reason they give that whole date rape talk at freshman orientation <_<

Anyhoo, y'all need to sleep sometimes so that I can catch up in the morning!!! Sheesh!!!


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...
