Thanks for the welcome!

Welcome! I think you might be a record .... three posts, then here!!!

hahaha I tend to turn to humor to help me get through things. I read a lot of other threads for research and to answer questions, but this one looked like so much fun that I had to post.

Change blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything. Creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild.

Hey everyone! I'm one of those newbies Susie or Emily mentioned, who came across this thread by chance. I love it! :D

I really wish I had seen the toaster poster...although that was posted before I was diagnosed, so I wouldn't have had a reason to be here.

Also, to combine the cat comment and the dutch oven discussion, the absolute worst is when your cat farts on your pillow and/or you in bed. :blink:

:lol: ...WELL HELLOOOOOooooo and welcome to the madness :blink:

In my case, it's the annoyance & frustration of TOO MUCH STUFF!!! :angry:

Why do I have this? . . . .Why do I have THIS? .. . . . . Why does my roommate think the front/coat closet is a good place for his bin of extra sheets??!

Why indeed? :blink: ...so Ptaum,......are YOU a packrat??? ( :lol: Oh gawd - I'm even picking up the lingo :o )

Sunny here too, and 73 degrees. And Lucas has some kind of virus from hell and has been throwing up since 6am. The vomit and poop never ends around here.

Welcome, Joyful!

Vomit & Poo???.......DIVINE!!!.....and yeah, somedays it feels like it never ends you poor love.

When my kids were little my Mum said she'd name my home ''House at Pooh corner'' (from Pooh bear) as invariably I was up to my neck in muck and bullets (but NO bullets ;) )...yeah an un dx coeliac child as well......THE HEINOUSITY YEARS :lol:

I want turkey, dingo quinoa stuffing with wine (mental not to self- do NOT put the dingos IN the stuffing!), chocolate chip cookies and cool WHip!!!!!!!!!!!!

:lol: DO NOT put the dingos, or other mammals, in the stuffing. :huh:

Dingos are striking because they feel so......so.....used and exploited.

Oh, and mommy just doesn't have anything fantastic to sell at the moment. Dingos on strike just sounded more dramatic.

Hey everyone! I'm one of those newbies Susie or Emily mentioned, who came across this thread by chance. I love it!

well HI-DEE-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO there silly! OMG - were you looking to scratch that itch on your elbow???????? ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!! welcome to the vortex............

Sunny here too, and 73 degrees. And Lucas has some kind of virus from hell and has been throwing up since 6am. The vomit and poop never ends around here.

Welcome, Joyful!

Why, I smell another job for our wonderful, Only-In-America CLOSET ORGANIZER LADY! Tom, you must get her contact info from Patti (or Nikki, who called her in for an emergency intervention to make room for the yeti). All she needs is the odd sandwich.

Welcome to our insanity, Joyful! There's plenty to go around!... :lol:

I feel for all of you--at least it's warm enough to open the windows and air out the house :)

are YOU a packrat??? ( :lol: Oh gawd - I'm even picking up the lingo :o )

Hey Nikki--good use of the word "packrat"!!! :P

She's got a point there, Susie :D:lol:

That's right Tom--since my husband won't part with ANYTHING, it's the next best thing :lol:

She's quiet--stays closed behind the closet door and doesn't come out until all your storage problems are solved. She was at my house for 4 and a half hours, so that pretty much gives you an idea of what I'm up against :o:D

A sandwich and cup of tea are appreciated ;)

Ahhhh, Fresh Meat . . . I mean WELCOME, Joi-phull

Your assignment is to go back and read the entire thread so that you know what we are talking about . . . Good Luck and take some advice from Peter and do some heavy drinking while you are at it. It will make us appear all the more wittier and better looking!

In my case, it's the annoyance & frustration of TOO MUCH STUFF!!! :angry:

Why do I have this? . . . .Why do I have THIS? .. . . . . Why does my roommate think the front/coat closet is a good place for his bin of extra sheets??!

Perhaps it's because the linen closet is already full with the broken microwave that you're going to get fixed "sometime", the bell bottom jeans from when you were in high school, a set of World Book Encyclopedias, those cute little outfits that you dress the concrete goose in and said goose.

Oh Knickeigh, sadly & undeniably yes - ("hey I might bloody well need this someday!")

But, I CAN say I'm less packratty than when I had a big ole 3BR condo to keep it all in. (in which to keep it all?)

Oh yes . . . you didn't notice? . . . didn't read the "changes" thread?

The default font is back to size 2. I wanted to plead my case that we needed our size 2 on the silly thread so that when we make snide comments and give stage directions we could use size 1 but I thought that would only hurt the cause so I kept my mouth shut. (Which is indeed difficult at times.) :lol:

That's still probably a preferred interpretation to seeing Dingo Stuffing as analogous to Turkey Stuffing. :ph34r:

Well I've got the "odd" part cinched, considering I have no bread, cheese or condiments.

Heyyyyyyyy I should look into a yeast-free bread mix I saw mentioned somewhere. (Bet it still has >2 ingred I can't have :( )

Ahhhh, Fresh Meat . . . I mean WELCOME, Joi-phull

Dang!! Jhae-knit beat me on the foe-neddi-kull Geoigheull!!! (Grrrr I had my chance and missed it) :lol:

Why thank you sooooo much.

Alas, I live on a dry campus and haven't figured out if sparkling grape juice is ok.

As for looking wittier and better looking...

Well, we all know Tom, that quack, is back to himself when he throws down the word pun gauntlet! Now, as I migrate towards a suitable reply and duck his retorts, I think I might just be flocked!

:o was there an insult in there?? :lol: :lol:

dry campus. I lived on one once, too. In the south. Alas, I was a non-drinker for many, many years.

WTH happened to me? :lol:

okay - I am not a fan of James Blunt's plaintive, weepy hit, but this amused me:

Y'all will be glad to know, I stepped away from teh word game hours ago. Now trying to do Spanish homework...........zoigs.......I never go to class any more and am a bit behind. :ph34r:

Why have I become such a slacker???????????????????????????????????????? :blink:
