Carla - silly you, Whole Paycheck is what we call Whole Foods! So you go to Whole Foods/Paycheck and just go to their gluten-free section, get the Sandwich Bread. Be warned, it has eggs and dairy....not a prob for me but I know for many....I will splurge on this as do get sick of the other cardboard I eat.

Washign the car....ugh....mine is currently just a stinky dog kennel on wheels...can't wait until I win the lottery (uh, guess I have to remember to buytickets to win? :huh: ) and I can just hand the keys over to the dogs, and say, here you go girls, the stinky jeep is all yours, knock yourselves out!! And then I can get my nice, clean, civilized hybrid SUV....whatever that will be.....

Okay is a porterhouse a good steak? I think I always buy rib-eye, don't know my cuts of meat very well (only what I learn on Dave Letterman)....

LOL :lol::lol::lol: I didn't know the nickname for Whole Foods, but in my defense, we don't have Whole Foods ... We have Wild Oats.

A t-bone is basically a porterhouse without the tenderloin. It's good, but you don't get the tender part, but with the porterhouse you do. It's a huge, expensive steak!! New York Strip is one of the most flavorful cuts. Filets are more tender but not as tasty. For any more info, you'd have to ask the butcher ... that's all I know!

I have two minis ... one is a Mini Cooper, the other is a mini-van! Adam wanted to replace the mini-van with something else. I told him that I'd hate any car that seats 8, so why waste perfectly good money on a car to haul kids around. He really wanted me to have a new car (he always has had a nice car), so I said to get me a fun car since I hardly drive with all the kids, but it has to have a back seat because I would hardly ever get to drive a two-seater. So, he got me a MINI. I keep it very clean ... the van on the other hand, it's no longer my car, so I never clean it!! But the kids do occasionally.

:blink: Quick drive by--feeling so-so---

Hey, nothing, imho, beats a NY strip steak. Preparation H--omg, I worked for a bit in the fashion industry in college--part-time, no biggie, but the product used then was anusol-the creme-not fishy, lol. I think it would take a truckload the way my eyes look today, lol.

Susan, I used your word when I went into the kitchen a little while ago. Ds was on the phone with one of his buds--I announced, "This kitchen is heinous!" Z says to his friend in his beavis voice--heh, heh, my mom said "heinous", heh, heh, rhymes with anus, lol." Teenagers are so fun....

An embarrassing moment with his brother--I am in the CVS when my oldest was around 14 and he was in another aisle and yells loudly, "Hey, Mom!! Here's the Preparation H you were looking for, and the Depends are over here too!!!" Sheesh. I don't know who they get it from.......... :blink:

Gotta go... maybe back later... Richard, hmmm. I think you are a nut. I like that, lol. :lol:

I think it took 20 minutes to catch up on this thread and that is only since this morning.

I am not going to have Broncobucs take a photo of my hair as I am not going to spike it tomorrow. The length is still new to me and I just played with it this morning for a kind of normal hairdo. I will play with spiking it myself at a later time. I will make sure when I get my haircut in 3 weeks that I take my camera and have her take some photo's with it spiked. My hair is only about 1 1/2" long and that is why I needed to play with it. So, I am sorry you will have to wait to see the old lady with spiked hair.

I only wear a french manicure, but my tips are cream instead of white. I chip nail polish too bad and so that is what my manicurist does. Then it is not noticable if it slightly chips. I really hate chipped nail polish. My toes have no nail polish on them as I cannot bend to take it off if it chips. She gives me a pedicure once a month and I am about the only one she has that uses no polish. If I was wearing nail polish on my toes and hands, it would be matching. I am a type A personality.

so glad to help, Robbin! Heinous is such an excellent word...everyone in my life uses it (and many others, words friends and I made up in jr. high/high school - still in use!)....love the story of your teenage son yelling in the store....I've done that to friends, as a grownup :ph34r:

Anyone else suffering through the news to see the CBS piece on celiac tonight??

was reading on that other thread - am I the only one that likes Katie Couric? :huh: not suffering for me....am alerting many peeps in my life to turn it on....

made an attempt at Bumble Bars.....what a pisser....not so good thus far...they are in a slow oven right now, but, the sesame seeds tasted really bitter when I sampled :angry: we will see how big a debacle this really is (debacle - another favorite and you just can't use it enough IMO :lol: )

What does "premature posting" mean?

GAHHHHH!!! :lol::lol::lol: that is from the OMG thread - - there were always so many pages, and we would get excited and start writing before we had read them all....hence, premature post....there is also a POST-mature post, I think, maybe when something went on pages/days ago and then responding? :P

Robbin--My husband likes to goof around a lot (understatement) and has done the same thing to me! He'll say in a loud voice: Hey Patti--did you forget your Preparation H? Then I get him back with something like: Thanks, did you remember to pick up your ear wax remover? :lol:

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.

I turned 39 so I am almost old now. It is hard to resist a thread about hot fourty something women.


If all the world is indeed a stage and we are merely players then will someone give me the script because I have no f!@#$%^ clue as to what is going on!

Carla- But it's even stranger when you're teaching them in the same room you took YOUR freshamn writing class in and now all you can think about is academic stuff. As opposed to back when all I could think about was how cute the graduate student was that was teaching the class. :ph34r:
