Sorry, Susie. I know you don't like peppermint .... but when that happens to me about 30 drops of peppermint oil (from the health food store, not candy flavoring), helps very quickly. It's almost miraculous.

I wonder if it goes with Kahlua?

Hope you're feeling better tomorrow Susie. I must retire, not because I'm exhausted and need to go to bed, but so that Tom will shutdown his sidekick and enjoy his night out!

Night All!

Yeah, the way he talks, I'd think he would have said 10.

Well Har-dee-Har-Har I was, of course, speaking of Susie's YELLING at me in a size=5 FONT!! :lol: is there a size=6?

Mmmmmm delectably spicy El Pollo Loco lingering. ... mmmmmmmmmm

Susie check out the crazy chicken lately?

Can barely believe I've got catching up to do again at NIGHT!!!

We have new neighbours and they seem quite nice but the husband keep calling me Lexie -- ugh!! It's a fine name but it's not MY name. I introduced myself Alex, he asked what it was short for and I told him Alexandria and he took it upon himself to rename me Lexie. I don't know why it bugs me so much!!

Oh jeez this reminds me of a recent couple of PMs I've exchanged lately.

(Just barely, but it did come to mind)

A newbie started a thread and I really only went in there cuz it had been unanswered for a while and I believe it's discouraging for a newb to get no response.

Anyway, the newbie said "celiacs". So after answering the question i toss in "P.S. It's Celiac, not Celiacs".

Which prompts the 1st PM. (From someone who I'd [uhoh . .. . whom?] prefer doesn't read this)

Here are some quotes:

"If you check your spell check, it will tell you that celiac is not a word to begin with and adding an "s" only makes it pural."

---and---

"who makes you the teacher in this forum? Please do not correct everyone all the time, it hurts the forum and it also makes doctors tell their patients to not frequent these forums. Pettiness is a bad thing!!"

Apparently, the ONE time I point out to a first-time poster (hopefully before the incorrect word becomes ingrained) that Celiac has no S, it leads doctors to .. .what????????????

Suddenly my little post affects doctors?

Oh dang . . .. .there was a lot more but I only saved one of the PMs.

Oh I remember that I had a point. I have celiac disease. People who have it should at least know how to say it.

Wrong is wrong. I bet Lexie and Sue agree. (LOL writing just 'sue' feels like I'm referring to someone else!)

Sarah, since he can't wear the wedding ring any longer, you can just buy him a ball and chain ... it's not made of gold and he can wear it over his sock .... it'll match your black shirt.

Yes! They have sport models, and dressier ones....and the new Holiday Model, that I just picked up for my DH, which comes with added sleigh bells...

:lol: :lol: :lol:

but OMG - does your husband have some........flesh-eating strep gangrenous finger? :unsure: slightly troublesome........

ball and chain!!! yes!

Can't wait to hear about your party.....and what you wore. :lol:

:o As a matter of fact, last night I googled necrotizing faciitis.... I was relieved to see that it doesn't look like what he's got. Told ya I'm a worrier, YES indeed I considered the flesh-eating virus!!! But no, it's just a very severe form of eczema, with a staph infection thrown in for good measure. In all honesty, it DOES look disgusting and wretchedly painful. He says it doesn't really hurt, but it itches. We are taking extra precautions to avoid spreading the staph.

The party was decent. The people Brian works with are very friendly and laid back. In fact, our table got a little loud and rowdy... B) It was the same place as last year, this big fancy schmancy country club. It's very pretty though, gorgeous Christmas decor. The band was pretty good- they didn't play any Abba or Bee Gees. ;) Although, with a little wine, "Stayin' Alive" can be quite entertaining, especially when the sequined, blue haired little ole ladies jump onto the dance floor.

Now, The Outfit... In the end, I went with brown instead of black. Light brown pants, with my favorite white shirt- clean lines, mandarin collar, Chinese Knot buttons. Darker brown suede jacket, and high heeled boots. I could have gone dressier, but I didn't feel under-dressed. Whew.

Gah! I saw that post and I remember thinking, "I'm glad he said that. It drives me NUTS when people say 'Celiacs Disease.'" I can't help it. It makes me crazy.

--Son, Ezra, age 5. Gluten-free 10/13/07. Bipolar tendencies, massively improved on gluten-free diet! He's also allergic to a jillion antibiotics.

--My mother has Celiac Disease, dx'ed by Positive Blood Tests and Biopsy. Diagnosed Sarcoidosis 6/08.

--Myself, Gluten-free since 8/07

Mentioned this thread to a hockey dad who seems very with it, a little insane and artistic, and someone who I was certain would chuckle and remain enthralled with a mention of the yeti, the magic triangle, parades, Care Bear floats, tea-bagging, etc., etc. Well....I was wrong. He just stared at me.

Lose the tea-bagging and you might have a shot.

and can you believe she left the house dressed in that?

ROFL :lol:

I'm so glad YOU said THAT! That very 4 word P.S. of mine prompted multiple PMs, as if I'd been chastising ppl about the "S" 50x a day!!!!!!

Another time, months ago, I PMd a first-timer on something and added that it doesn't have an S, and was THANKED!!

If we don't catch 'em early, they're lost.

Mornin', all you weekend posters!

Um, how old is this brother? and, look, let's just get it out here right now. WHAT are his ish-ooooooooooozzzzzzzzzzz? tell me, I need to know his really annoying bad habits.

Brett is 54. Perhaps too old? Looks terrific....6'1'', quite active (regular hockey, biking, member of gym). Moustache (can be removed)...Y'know, just regular 54 year-old guy stuff. Hilariously funny. As a younger man, I am not kidding, he was always told he looked like Robert Redford. Nasty habits: Hmmmmmmm...he's probably too sensitive. A bit niave. May have some hair on his back (dunno). Used to smoke, hasn't in ten years. Undiagnosed celiac, of that I'm certain.

For a brother, he smells quite decent. Nothin' like he used to smell like at 16 (I was a little kid, but it was still duly noted)...

Peter.................oh PEEEEEEEEEEEEETERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR...............

Yes.....Where is our Peter?

I'm sorry . . . I may have missed it . . . Why is it that Sue-Zee has to move to Canada? Can't HE move to California? And does HE have a name. It was probably mentioned, but Lord help me, I'm not going back . . . you can't make me . . . you can't make me

Brett.

Careful, he may have an 'accent'.

{/quote]

:lol::lol::lol::lol: This made me laugh more than anything has for quite a while, for some reason. We all know each other far too well. Tom has remembered my bro's name. This is excellent.

I'm sure he has that Toronto accent. Calls Toronto "Tah-rawn-tah", I believe.

Brett manged and bartended for many years downtown....gotta ask him...

He now has his own headhunting company, recruiting and placing engineers in jobs throughout the T.O. area. Tough to haul up stakes and move, Susie... :(

Ah, but ask Jess....size apparently does NOT matter.... :lol:

Yes, I read that, too, and was so pleased at Tom's appropriate correction to said newbie. "Celiacs" may make some people crazy, but it drives me right out of my mind. On Monday I shall march into the embassy and plan an advanced lesson on plural forms. When I am done with them, no one will ever pluralize celiac, unless we're discussing a roomful of celiacs...and what to feed them. :lol:

So if I'm hearing y'all correctly . . . In order to push a multitude of buttons simultaneously, I need to say something like . . .

WOO - HOO !!!

BEV pooped in !!!!! :D

Oops...no...can't come...that's hyperglycemic city.... :(

Nay problem Emily - just off to the off - license (the mysterious place in the UK where we buy booze liquor :lol: )

OMG I'm coming to Nikki's party too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In my bedazzled sweats and hair dragged backwards through a hedgehog.......er, hedge........

I hate it when you get a hedgehog trapped in your hair - damn things are so spikey.

...and BEDAZZLED SWEATS!!!!....Excellent!!! .......we must share tips - you WON'T believe how I jazzed up my Nikes (they would look fab teamed with any ball gown) :lol:

And shower them about, like when 1970s Dad would roll that fertilizer-spreader contraption around the yard. :huh:

:huh: Indeed!!

Brett.

Careful, he may have an 'accent'.

I am left to ponder the difference (to my untrained ear) the difference between a Canadian to an American accent.

My son #2 has a Canadian teacher

My son #3 has an American teacher

I can conclude that:

1) England has no teachers of their own

2) The American teacher's accent sounds more 'twangey' to me (the Canadian's more subtle)

...any way, back to Emily's brother - an un dx'd coeliac you say??? (has coeliacs but doesn't know it)

Hope Sue ( :lol: ) has 2 toilets :unsure:

I now must announce that I have the most iniquitous (*giggle*) of tasks (I giggle when I'm nervous)

Last year - I posted a recipe on this thread (for Patti) for sweet mince pies.....I can't find it indoors........I MUST GO BACK (Patti if you're reading HELP MEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeee)

DINGOES ON STANDBY ......I MAY BE GONE SOME TIME..............................

Undiagnosed celiac, of that I'm certain.

For a brother, he smells quite decent.

Hmmmmm....reconsidering this....maybe he does stink....undiagnosed celiac=flatulence. :(

Brett manged and bartended for many years downtown....

:lol::lol: What a great typo! How amusing. Susie, he does NOT have mange. But It's been used as a verb....To mange. Whatever could that mean? He was manging downtown. He was relaxing? Rushing for the streetcar? Hangin' out with friends?

:rolleyes::lol:

Sue and Lexie have Celiacs Disease!

Gaaaaaahhhhh!!

Tom I am really glad you corrected that. It would help people if they are saying it right.

It would certainly help me...... <_<

:rolleyes: Susie is pleased. this sounds perfectly simple and lovely. So glad you had a good time. Now just mind that finger, make sure it doesn't necrotize his whole hand and then arm........ :blink:

So if I'm hearing y'all correctly . . . In order to push a multitude of buttons simultaneously, I need to say something like . . .

Sue and Lexie have Celiacs Disease!!!

GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! :lol:

I think it's worse if you leave off the DISEASE. It's when people just say "Celiacs" - - as in Sue and Lexie have Celiacs - - oh ma gaaaaaaaaaaawd, that makes me want to, um, hurt people. :huh: And we see it time adn again..........we'll never win that battle, I'm afraid.

...any way, back to Emily's brother - an un dx'd coeliac you say??? (has coeliacs but doesn't know it)

:lol:

My allergies are killing me this morning!

Susie how you feeling?

allergies! Bah!

I am feeling much better, thank you. Don't know what it was but was able to ameliorate the situation with a bit of, uh, flatus last night.

Mmmm, Emily's brother has the mange ......don't you have to bathe in a special de-manging solution for that??? ....and will Susie mind doing it????
