I'm with V'scope on not much embarassing me. I've had to make the dreaded trip to the drugstore more than once. No matter how much other stuff you buy to hide the fact your buying something with wings that doesn't fly, it always seems like the flightless pad "always" (is that where they get the name?) requires a price check :blink:

Good guffaw Richard, nearly blew coffee out my nose on this one....

and as far as INVITING men here....well we'd better send the Geese and dingos (um, reference to our security task force in the OMG thread for those who don't know) to fetch Steve - yes, poor STeve, doesn't know he's been sucked into anoother thread while he's minding his own business...... :lol:

Patti - ancient - I think not!! wow - permanently straightening hair...another thing I"ve done to myself :ph34r::o worked rather well - much better than the coloring experience.....too many other chemicals on hair to do it now - -

Gray's - - my prediction - - Meredith is going to get way too exhausted dating both of these guys - there will be a meltdown at some point - - but HOW can theylet her be wtih McDreamy, they would NEVER give us that satisfaction......they will torture us.....

Hi Kristy - OMG she wears color-coordinated nail polish - - should we let her in - - :lol::lol::o:lol: (totally kidding, of course you can come - you and PixieGirl can be the glamour divas).....

My husband is like Richard and Vincent in regard to not being embarassed to buy certain personal products. Actually, if the cashier is a guy, I get kinda embarassed. :ph34r:

Susan--I decided against any highlighting in light of the straightening. You're right--don't want to damage the mane. :D Not too much, anyway :unsure:

Good God, not THE GEESE! :blink: I guess we should be thankful there aren't any ill-tempered penguins in the area - there AREN't any ill-tempered penguins here....are there? :huh:

Patti... omg... another twin phobia... I hate to go get personal things at the store too... :lol::ph34r:

:ph34r: Isn't that funny! I really think my husband is less embarassed than I am :lol:

Related story--I used my last 2 emergency Immodiums before I went to the salon. (anxiety in full swing) So, I'm in CVS on the way home buying more. All I could think of was--"this guy probably thinks I have D"!! :lol::lol:

hahahaha, Patti, that made me laugh.

One of my personal favorites was buying beer (for hubby), Imodium in large quantities (for me), and um, "protection" (for both of us, so yall figure that one out.) I stood in line with a straight face and was beet red.

I read somewhere that the most shoplifted items are condoms and Preparation H. Now there is a joke in there somewhere...

Patti, I'm the same way. My husband has no qualms whatsoever. So maybe we should just be embarassed with the unmarried cashiers. :unsure::ph34r:

Ok, Celia.....we can be triplets in this instance. Let me in. :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.

The store I buty "protection" at has everything back by the pharmacy so I pay there. Nice and convenient.

:angry: ROBERT :angry: had a good story - buying tampons for his then 15-y-o daughter, diapers for his 2 year old daughter, and a six pack for himself.....

I read somewhere that the most shoplifted items are condoms and Preparation H. Now there is a joke in there somewhere...

I have used preparation H under my eyes, as models do, for puffiness...not only did I stink like cod, it burned and did not work.....

I would NEVER buy beer at the same time, I still get carded once in a while, so it might slow my getaway...

You've just shattered my dreams of Cindy Crawford, or should I say "stinky fish-faced" SUPERmodel Cindy Crawford.

FYI supermodels aren't supermodels because they are smart :) I wouldn't take any advice from them :P

They even use duct tape as a "lift" for their assets.

No more Cosmo for you! (or me) ;)

Oh, bad choice of birds, I didn't mean THAT Penguin (notice the capitalization). I meant ill mannered-kiwi's, no that'll tick of the NZlanders...Dodo's- they're extinct, right?

She's not ill-tempered though.

Someone should send her a pm inviting her to this thread. Laura could use another ish-ish. Were there any other ish-ish's?

She has her own infomercial now. She is hawking some ageless beauty cream for 4 easy payments of $29.95 you too can turn back the clock... "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful" (I know, that was Kelly LeBrock - at least she married Steven Segal before he weighed 300 lbs and lost his mind)
