I walk down to the car at lunch with John. I have a bottle of coke. I sit down in the car to open it and it was like New Years Eve when some corks a new bottle of champagne. All the coke was everywhere. All over my khakis all over my pink shirt and all over and down my sleeve of my white lab coat. I used my tide bleach pen as best as I could. I am still dirty though.

:o:lol: Oh good Lord! Glad you're laughing about it.

well where IS Everybody? some are moving......but - - Nikki, Bev??? and where's Julie been? I think we lost Daughter entirely - :huh: Richard - too many paint fumes? (my god, remember when everything had to be painted in oil - - how DID we survive our lead-tainted childhoods :lol: :lol: :lol:)

OMG - is nothing sacred - there is Chris Botti playing Nessun Dorma on his trumpet (?).....that ain't right....what's next.....Kenny G playing Vivaldi's Gloria on his insipid sax??????????????

:lol:

slow day here, folks.......nothing to see......just drive on....................

SILLLLLLLLIIEEEEEEEEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(shaking head)

You need not fret so over the FRIENDS list. It was a feature added - maybe a year ago? None of us is sure why....except that, if someone looks at your page, they can determine if you are poplular or not??????????

Yes, yes . . . the most popular wins!

OK for all of you nonfriendly sort . . . you can enable the ability to block people from adding you to their friends list by changing something in your personal portal info . . . you would have the ability to aprove them first. The default is that anybody can add you if they want to. So if you feel inclined to approve anyone that wants to be your friend then make the change . . . then that's were the friends pending list comes in.

Also, should any of you nonfriendly types want to PM somebody, you can type in their name or find their name in a thread . . . OR if they are in your friends list, you get a little menu that you can select them as your PM recipient.

Also with your friends list, you can do a quick check to see if they've been on recently . . . unless your Bev because she has that blocked and I haven't looked into how she did that.

Sorry to tell you, if you want your own friends list, you have to build it yourself. Doesn't mean you have too . . . doesn't mean that if we have added you and you don't add us back, we will be offended . . . much. :(:huh::lol::lol:

and THANK GOD this other disquieting feature was aborted: you could actually RANK people! Go on their profiles and rate from 1 to 5 stars. :huh: There was a big brouhaha about taht, and it was abolished........................

OMG...Talk about politically incorrect...Ranking people? I was blissfully unaware of this feature while it was around. I'd be ONE star, across the board--then, like you, Tom, I'd be asking for psychiatrist referrals in the Ottawa area. :lol:

I am so amused by the complexity of it all...Ha! :lol: Friends are friends because of the ease with which the relationship happens...Unless you're on the Celiac.com forum--then you've gotta WORK for them friends! And I must say...do any of us sit at work, or in the car, or stand at the bank, and suddenly think, "Whoa! Forget this--I gotta get to my computer and find out if Emily's been on lately!" An...interesting feature...(!)

... changing something in your personal portal info . . .

I'm not sure it's appropriate to be discussing personal portals in a public forum :o

Bev, it's funny you mention this. I was just thinking yesterday (y'know, deep birthday thoughts, where's-the-time-going, guilt, regrets, all those horrid yearly pinings as the hourglass slowly runs in the background), that I have been SO lax in my responibilities of helping the newbies who get on here, depressed and frightened. Our Cult of Madness makes it very tough to visit anywhere else, particularly with a straight face. I find myself about to post the funniest responses to very serious questions. "Help! My stomach just stays SO bloated!" or "What can I tell my mother-in-law when she brings over her homemade scones?", or "check these pics of my backside out...is this DH?" These things resonate, now, with an inane hilarity, and before my life in Sillyland I was easily able to empathise and advise. WHAT"S HAPPENING TO US ALL? I just smirk at almost everything now....

...It's fantastic!.... B):lol::lol:

I know...me too. I even find myself driving in my car thinking of funny things to tell you guys. I want to help the newbies too but right now, i'm so tired.....I just need to be free to be bawdily silly!!!!!!!!!! :D:o

Carla- EXCELLENT dope slap on your son! WHAT did he DO to deserve it??????? Teenage boys are always up to something evil (we need GREEN GUY AND DEVIL emoticon). :ph34r: <-------The ph34r guy just doesn't cut it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SARAH- a fellow Heroes fan! I LOVE that show but went to bed before it was on last night (we recorded it) so don't tell me what happened. I LOVE Parkman and Hiro. Something about Parkman just says "I am a big 'ol teddy bear". SO mad when his UGLY wife left him. To be in the 501 club just post like 150 times. We don't care if youo jibber at us...maybe it will even make YOU the next queen!

Well, I have a BIG confession to make. I have no idea what making someone your friend on here does,--why we do it, what the perks are...Richard suddenly became my FIRST friend a couple of weeks ago, and then more followed. I tend to be something of a sheep, and follow the great flock, so now I have started "befriending"...Do we go to each other's houses? Can I borrow makeup or books from you guys? Do I now have special access to your hidden journals? "Add as friend"...it's a lovely option, and when I get an email announcing that someone has put me on their Friends list, I'm just all warm inside. But I wanna go to some of my friends' places... :lol:

Yes- Tom can borrow your makeup, Richard has access to your hidden journals and they BOTH know about your lingerie drawer. And there's always spouse/significant other switch night. :o :o :o :o If you have no significant other- not sure who does and doesn't- you have 3 choices:

1. Bon Jovi

2. Reese Witherspoon

3. A male or female yeti (freshly shampooed of course).

The friend's feature is lovely but my favorite is the COMMENTS section where you can say nice things about each other.

Also with your friends list, you can do a quick check to see if they've been on recently . . . unless your Bev because she has that blocked and I haven't looked into how she did that.

You caught me (shhh!!!!!!!) I logged on as invisible cause as a moderator theres a few threads I's keeping me eyes on. SHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can do it by logging out, then log back in and checking log me in invisible. Then you can be but a mere ghost that no one can see, and SWOOP down at any moment, add a reply, then disappear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

With the star thing (when we had it) I thought it was evil so I just went in and gave everyone 5 stars.

Okay...I hate having no friends! I'm finding you all and you're ALL going to be informed that I've put you on my friends list. ..Wait, now...is this like facebook? Can you refuse to be my friend? I don't know how I would manage that. Any psychiatrist recommendations yet, Tom?

Nice to see you, goofasaurus!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well - I have been helping some newbies a bit - but I think I got removed from some friends lists :lol: because I told someone he could scrub the hell out of his cast iron skillet and still use it............ :huh: (well, that's what *I* would do anyway)

and then I tried to tell someone that she could consider getting her 'ROIDS lanced - she doesn't have insurance and I don't think it's a DIY situation... :huh:

OMG - I have things to do. :ph34r:

Yes, and my offer is still there re. my blow-up lawn Santa, but Tom hasn't responded to it. Perhaps he thinks it wouldn't fit in his pod. TOM! Silliiiieeee!! It DEFLATES! Takes up no room whatsoever!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:o

Half-nekkid man alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I'm minding my own business, taking out the trash cans. Down the street, at the very end, is a distinctly slow-ambling male, clad only in thin pajama bottoms. No shirt. Or, I think to myself - - is it a flesh-coloUred shirt? I stare and stare. He's less than 1/4 mile away.

Well, I simply can't take it - I've discerned he's got no shirt on (not normal folks, even when it's 110 in summer). I jump in the car, and take a spin around the block.

Yup, he's got no shirt on, a shaved head, a ghostly palloUr, and is clutching his abdomen. His eyes meet mine, they are steely gray, adn DON"T WORRY EVERYBODY, I can do a police sketch if necessary. ;)

So.....I see that there is nothign further I can do....and go back home.

Soon, he is walkign AGAIN around the block.....shufflign very slowly - and is in front of my house. I whip out my camera, but alas, to take his photo, would have had to move the blinds and he would have heard me as window is open.

But - I was able to discern that he has a large bandage on his abdomen, indicating recent surgery - OR A STAB WOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o or maybe a GUNSHOT!!!!!!!!! (alas, no bandage or scar in rear, indicating bullet egress - - but then again, perhpas it is lodged in his SPLEEN or something, and hence the ashy paloUr) :huh:

but tell me this - what man in his fifties walks around, half-clad in cooler weather, who's just had surgery, in THIS gated, stepford, Aryan community? Has he LOST his MIND???

stay tuned.

I am out of my MIND for things like this. :lol:

:lol: was it.....could it have been......REALLY???? OMG! Tell him he should put a shirt on!! (although the physique really wasn't bad at all - rather lean - I'm going to look for this guy tomorrow and see if he's single :lol: ) Clearly he is in a vulnerable condition and will have no resistance to my charms. ;)

Oh! Just heard it on the news...Bob did not get lungs in time...he passed away this evening...

Sarah,

What a story! I'm so happy to hear that gluten may be the problem. It's funny, isn't it...sometimes in the frustration of living with this food restriction, we wish the cause of our symptoms could be ANYTHING else! Hearing a story like this allows me to give my head a good shake--my illness can be controlled with a diet change. It ain't cancer!

BTW, I LOVE the name Ezra! It was the second choice on our list of boy names, and Jack won out... :)
