Hi Richard :D

Hi all :)

Wow, I never imagined 200 pages of...of...of whatever you might call this place that we fill with random acts of silly-ness. Congratulations to our very own Princess Bev-DAWG on proving that the world isn't flat...there is life after page 199. Hoo-Bah!

I didn't think I was hearing the twirling of tassels btw, my ears were ringing, but i didn't put 2 and 2 together until just moments ago... :o

For the tassels to sound at the pitch I was hearing, some tassel-twirler musta been rockin' the house! (that or the tassels need some oil :P ) or ball bearings...everything is ball bearings these days...

keep up the Celi-ness

Bev, breaking through the 200 barrier is colossal. I believe that you should not be simply the Princess Sillak, but the Right Honorable QUEEN. We should take it to a vote. But when page 300 looms up ahead, your crown goes up for grabs. I am now officially tabling this motion. My fellow subjects?

Yes, p300 should coincide w/ a coup. (Which doesn't sound like soup, does it soup-sie? :lol: )

But I feel somewhat ineligible for the crown when the time comes. (Reminds me of my permanent non-voting status on OMG. Forever the suffragent)

King Richard truly cannot be supplanted, and I'll pass on being Queen, regardless of my proximity to San Francisco. <tho I have been hit on more than a couple times. I'm not sure you ladies can know how disconcerting that is. At least unwanted advances in YOUR direction involve someone wanting to put something somewhere it's intended to be>

:P

Perhaps if I'm blessed enough to turn the page to 300, there's a lordship vacancy?

I am very curious to know if anyone else, anywhere, pays attention and actually noticed when page 100 was hit, or is Tom alone in his hyper-observance? Man, I am very lucky if I notice new emails appearing, or the laundry baskets overflowing, or the smell of rotting food in the fridge...but those little page indicators turning? :rolleyes:

:lol: LOL Emily, I just know because I'd gone back to try to gauge the ramp-up of the soy-free brain. The OMG thread proved more useful tho. My 1st TickleMe day was jun11 (Bbay of *both* brothers btw :) ), and I'd pretty much fully ramped by then. (Can't deny that reading back was hilarious the 2nd time thru also tho!! :lol: )

Annnnnnnnd let's see - my pocket makes a cool sound when email arrives; my laundry basket sits in plain view; I can - no kidding - smell about-to-rot food that won't even look or smell like rotting food for another DAY OR TWO!!!! (Happened at mom's - told her that her fridge had "something bad . ..cantaloupe maybe" and much later she was amazed I could know so soon.)

THis is a cute e-mail I got today, thought I'd share since so many here seem to be cat and/or dog lovers:

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.

Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other

dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in

the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your

food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack Beating

me

to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall

faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about

this. Do not think I will continue

sleeping on the couch to ensure your

comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep.

It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to

the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out

and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing

but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by

some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not

necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under

the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door

I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years -- canine or

feline attendance is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I

cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on

our

front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1. They live here. You don't.

2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture.

(That's why they call it "fur"niture.)

3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is

short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: In many ways, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

1. Eat less

2. Don't ask for money all the time

3 Are easier to train

4. Normally come when called

5. Never ask to drive the car

6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends

7. Don't smoke or drink

8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions

9. Don't want to wear your clothes

10. Don't need a "gazillion" dollars for college.

And finally,

11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

I taught my big boy cat to get his treats by standing up and taking off the edge of the counter, which is adorable, but it wasn't quite as cute when he reached up and put his big furry paw on my rice cake with cream cheese.

Okay actually it was pretty cute.

Smashing a FULL unopened bottle on a dinghy( :lol: ) is a christening, but an appropriately opened and enJOYed bottle can only be a soozyening!! :lol::D

P.S. BEV!!! I gotcha something at the airport. See new avatar for preview.

(I'll leave it in the Gab/Chat lobby.)

P.P.S. I still gotta read p201!!! Such prolificity!!

Wow...this thread is developing into a palpable realm all its own...an empire with King, Queen, fifes, serfs and duchesses, many court jesters, (hmmmm...me....I could just be the slattern in the alehouse)....I think we should break into a huge virtual parade, with tassle-twirlers leading off, our Monarchs in fine livery, Lord Tom piping everyone in with his sax (could you manage something regal-sounding on a medieval hunting bugle, Lord Tom? Just for this event?) Tostito eaters and a fine yeti would bring up the rear. So regal...I wish we could parade all through Celiac.com! Just like the Santa Claus Parade, up and down all the threads and forums!! :lol:

oh 'tis surely Bev.....or maybe Nikki? As for me, I am tassel-less today, but my breasts DID get some attention (in the form of the doctor's exam and PAP today :ph34r: ) :lol:

...OUCH!!!! :o ....I think a loose tassel flew off into my eye.......manic tassel twirling going on

...but WAS it a tassel, or a tostito???? :lol:

JULIE - excellent on the cats and dogs. and SO true.

She just gets to wave in parades and break bottles of champagne on Susie, I mean dinghies, I mean boats/ships, right?)

She may SOMEtimes tell us what to do, but only if she plies us w/ mojitos, tostitos, cosmos and tassels all our own. This would all be done within direct vicinity of a trampoline, also. :lol:

Yes, susie accepts christening of champagne bottles - full, mind you - on the dingos - - - oops I mean dinghies.

speaking of dingos. Tonight in spanish class, we are to give a small presentation, with photos, describing our families. Yup, I will be talking about teh dingos. :lol:

I just burst out laughing--all alone in my house, like a fool :P

:lol: I do it frequently. The girls don't even notice any more. Oh - one more native american name for me: Laughs with Dingos! :P

She drinks them first!!!! (then smashes them over Susie :P )

no *I* drink them first. We both get smashed. :lol:

So, I'm reading Emily's post and I snicker. My son who was in the room asked why was I laughing. I said I read something funny. He wanted to hear it. I told him that he wouldn't understand. He said he wanted to hear it anyway. So I read it out loud. Then I asked him if he thought it was funny. He said "Well, it had some funny words. Now if it had burrito eater in it, it would have been funny." :lol:

So Sarah, can you eat a burrito in the parade because apparently the Tostitos aren't funny?

Well, yes! Whatever invokes the most mirth...if burritos are funnier, then I decree that we SHALL have burrito-eaters in this parade (Ho...quite a bit of power being assumed by me, the lowly alehouse slattern, what?) After all, it is the Sillyak Empire Cavalcade. Anything goes.

The excitement is truly building...can you just hear the mumbling throughout the forum...on OMG, through the related disorders threads, into the technical section and through the Meeting Room--"hey...you guys hear what's goin' on over at Tickle Me? I hear there's some kind of a parade starting up...what do you think that means?" :lol:

We need to have Canadian Karen bring her Altoids car into our parade. :lol:

No, I'm not elaborating ... but anyone who was in Rachelville in the summer of 2005 will know about this vehicle.

    • Thanks so much, friends!  JMG, I'll try to get hold of that licorice, almost everything I read gives it glowing reviews.  I miss Bertie Bassets licorice (it contains wheat) so it will be nice to have some licorice again.  Thanks Whitepaw for those ideas, I must admit I'm getting rather fed up with my low fat menu but it seems the best way to keep the pain at bay so it is nice to have something else to cook.  I don't know if I have picked up another intolerance, but you could be onto something there.  And I know what you mean icelandgirl, we've been through so many tests and treatments it all becomes a blur!  My doctor isn't expecting to see me again unless things aren't better within the month, but I might bring my gastro appointment forward if needs be. Actually, in the end yesterday didn't go quite as badly as I'd envisaged it would, which makes me think that some of my pain, bloating and nausea are down to the ompremazole - it does warn that can happen on the packet.  When it says 1 in 10 people get these symptoms I always seem to be that 1 in 10!  I don't have any more burning pain or acid reflux (at least yet) but  I'm still losing weight which slightly troubles me.  That said, when I think of how I normally eat I must be down at least 500 calories a day.  JMG will know from another thread that I have a sweet tooth and at the moment the thought of eating a bar of chocolate makes me feel very sick indeed... Oh no - hope that doesn't mean I have developed a chocolate intolerance! I bought some 10g ompremazole tabs yesterday from Boots, having had nothing yesterday, and I've taken one at breakfast time.  So far so good.  I think I might take these for a few days then taper off. Thank you so much guys for accompanying me on what would otherwise be a lonely journey.  
    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
