Mygad, EVERYTHING they say about wine being cheap here (even cheap stuff) is completely true...wine is served like water with dinner; So, needless to say, everything is VERY good with me...not so much my husband, who is a beer drinker and the ale is very pricey here, interestingly. BIG GAPS TO MIND HERE! Ya gotta really watch when you're hurrying off the underground. I smell big insurance claims!...

Hi Jess,

I'm real sure u didn't read what I was referring to. It was completely impulsive, and definitely not a test.

I was trying to help you out with a semi-plausible excuse.

I'll just go home and sniff my kitties

LOL no Donna I wasn't referring to your single pkg (probably a measly 6-8oz over days, I think), nor to myself Jess. I don't eat anything w/ even the slightest potential of a downside. [Edit: overstated a bit. I will try small amounts of something I'm 98%+ confident will be ok]

It was someone else, and I may have said too much already.

Welllllllllll ok, I have tested a couple things recently, but only things w/ a very high probability of being fine. And in small amounts.

Like wine. Considering I've been having gluten-free beer (Redbridge of course) for many months, I decided to finally try wine again.

Previously, fermented products were off-limits. For 2+ yrs.

But if beer is ok, why not wine?

I'd been thinking about it for a while, then when at a friend's while they were having dinner, I tried 1/2 a glass.

Seemed like no prob, so ~10 days later I even bought a bottle.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!!! I know *nothing* about wine!!!!!! :ph34r: (Hoping maybe Dingy can give me a tip or 2? :):) Ideally, a little knowledge on good bang-for-the-buck strategies would suit me best.)

That went fine too, both in cooking and drinking. So yesterday, I bought more! :D

I think I enjoy wine more now than ever in the past. It'll come in real handy when out somewhere - sure can't expect places to have Redbridge on hand!! :lol:

P.S. Hey Donna!!! Still scared about someone tuning-up/fixing your PC for free? <shudder>

LOL ya duly busted!! (I do think I had good reason to migrate a post from OMG, since a part of it could be taken as insulting by some)

Nonetheless!!! I *swear* I tried to think of a joke to throw in at the end, to get in line w/ the purpose of THIS thread. Reminds me of when I used to try to add something *serious* to posts over THERE!!

I've never actually posted a joke here - my attempts at humour are more reactionary. I need something to work w/ and rarely remember 'jokes'. (Oh wait - one time I pasted in to fill a double-post slot)

So FINE!!! :P here's a joke.

A man was driving up a steep, narrow, quite precarious (y muy peligroso) mountain road. A woman approached in the opposite direction. As they passed each other the woman leaned out the window and yelled, "Pig!". The man immediately leaned out his window, shot her the finger and hollered, "B!tch!".

They each continued on their way. Just seconds later, as the man rounded the next bend, he collided w/ a giant hog in the middle of the road, totalling his car. :P

Please Tom, eat some soy!

harrumph :huh:

:lol: LOL :lol:

Sadistic Spice strikes again!!! <_<

Ahhhhhh Carla . . . . .

That "brain came home" post of yours yesterday on OMG still kinda gives me chills just thinking about it. :):)

I cannot overstate how important I think it is to now not eat any of what I call the "tolerables".

(Curious about whether you had any agave syrup in the few days before writing "brain came home". <arrgh plz don't take that wrong>)

[This is like a practice post hehe :lol:

Now I've got to figure out how to word it in the OMG thread w/out potentially offending those who think 3lbs of cookies in 2days isn't detrimental]

Yes, I did have the agave syrup. :) I also had my monthly ice cream. :)

The brain still comes and goes along with the Lyme symptoms. Though I think the effect is the same as yours, the cause is different. I spent a little time in the sun today, just 15 minutes, and it triggered the symptoms ... sunlight stirs things up. Changes in abx (which I'm changing today :() stirs things up, herxing stirs things up. So, my brain has come home, it just seems to like to go out once in a while, just not so far from home. I'm not seeing the progressively getting better like you did ... it comes and goes ... before it was just gone.

I KNOW you're trying to get me to avoid certain foods ... and I AGREE that if I reacted to them when I was sicker that they are still as toxic for me now, it's just that my immune system can deal with them better ... so I do still avoid the foods I shouldn't have.

Okay, now everyone else is like, :huh::blink: What's she talking about??? :lol:

I'm glad you're coming across as happier even on the phone. :) I remember here, it was Donna who said I sounded like I felt better ... it comes across in writing, talking, everything!

Oh, and don't tell anyone they eat to many cookies. You'll be in so much trouble.

I was trying to help you out with a semi-plausible excuse.

I'll just go home and sniff my kitties

He hasn't learned that there's always a joke somewhere in your posts here ... sometimes it's not as obvious as others ... that's what's fun about them!

Enjoy your little kitties ... how'd they get the meth???

They were rescued from a meth house. The cops threw them out into the street and left them. The neighbors caught them and called the cat rescue place.

Yea authority figures. Teaching us to abandon animals in the street.

OmG- METH kitties..poor babies!!!!!!! Will they go through withdrawal? :ph34r:

They are so cute!

Istanbul. gay paris! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......I want to travel.

Here's my Uncle ray's thought for the day:

Handle every situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or hump it.

Piss on it and walk away.

The foster mom thinks the cats are almost through it. Hope so, it sounded nasty (like typical gluten reaction actually...no further description needed?)

I am so ready for the week to end.

Uhhhhhh Suzun, I forgot to mention my non-soy-based confusion on just how an afternoon of fretting over a non-date gets thru the silly filter . . . . .

"And now for something completely different"

I found a goat mozzarella and plan on making chicken parmagiana for a 'friend' tonight.

I'm oh so ignorant on many topics and this is one - could Tsu-zey or anyone else please recommend a *type* of wine for this?? I don't even know whether to lean towards red or white!!!!!!! <where's that dang embarrassed emoticon I need too often?>

(Or maybe I need to start just googling huh?) :lol::o

Sorry, you wrote in too late for me to reply! We were out ... I HAD to see the movie about Jane Austen (what a surprise!) ... it was very good. It told where the character Darcy came from ... as Bev already knows, I'm married to my own Mr. Darcy.

Usually, white food = white wine, dark food = red wine. Personally, I don't follow stupid rules like that as I much prefer red wine and drink things like shiraz with fish. :P

Tell us how dinner went!

rules on wine.......the only rule I follow is that if I am drinking a really deep and intense big, chewy, red, I want a steak or some lamb w/ it. Other than that, I think whatever.

I got confused at the intersection of chicken-->white, and red sauce seems like red. Got 2 cabernets to compare and the cheaper one won!

Shiraz? NOW who's making up words!! :lol:

(Ok I've heard it said before but don't get how a new type of wine appears. New blend or old one suddenly popular?)

Tell us how dinner went!

Dinner? Well it was my 1st mozzarella in 3 yrs min., so I might rave about it melted over wool. (Or even some untoasted store-bought gluten-free brickbread)

It was a setup <_< , at a friend's house tho he's out of town for baseball broadcast. His wife, Linda & I have same birthday! Linda kinda came and went, and I'd met Karen before a couple times yrs ago. Fun but no chemistry.

heading up to the lake - - sailing w/ dingos today! (well, the dingos will be on the beach, taking turns w/ various dingo-sitters)

Sounds like la dolce vita in dingoland!

Can Annie work a camera yet? That could be a good avatar. :)

Yes, THAT thought had crossed my mind. :lol:

If it'll make ya feel better, my usual rate would be $55/hr.

I thought you pick the wine based on what you're eating, not the other way 'round!

Kitties are home!!

The little girl (little only relative to her brother) decided pretty quick that this was gonna be okay and she woke me up every half hour so I could pet her.

This morning the young prince was draped over the back of the sofa. He's still sleeping in the closet, but I think he'll be fine.

From the folks

A man and his wife were celebrating 50 years together. Their

three kids, all very successful, agreed to a Sunday dinner in their

honor.

'Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad,' gushed son number one ... 'Sorry

I'm running late. I had an emergency at the hospital with a patient, you

know how it is, and didn't have time to get you a gift.'

'Not to worry,' said the father. 'The important thing is that

we're all together today.'

Son number two arrived and announced, 'You and Mom look great,

Dad. I just flew in from Los Angeles between depositions and didn't

have

time to shop for you.'

'It's nothing,' said the father, 'We're glad you were able to come.'

Just then the daughter arrived, 'Hello and happy anniversary! I'm

sorry, but my boss is sending me out of town and I was really busy

packing

so I didn't have time to get you anything.'

After they had finished dessert, the father said, 'There's

something your mother and I have wanted to tell you for a long time. You

see, we were very poor. Despite this, we were able to send each of you to

college. Throughout the years your mother and I knew that we loved each

other very much, but we just never found the time to get married.' The

three

children gasped and all said, 'You mean we're bastards?'

'Yep,' said the father. 'And cheap ones too.'
