I was sitting near a guy who is clearly a dim sum aficianado so I asked if one particular bun was bread or rice. He said "oh, you don't eat gluten?" and proceeded to pick out all the rice based treats for me, and ask for two of everything, one without sauce. He even grabbed stuff and handed it to me first, and when he was combining plates for more room, he didn't mix the rice food with the breaded food.

And my biggest concern of the moment - red? or white? with peanut butter?

:o

:o

Do not know his relationship status, but he plays on the gay men's soccer team, so I don't think I'm his type.

Did not get a chance to ask him how he knew.....

Congrats to Queen Rachel!!!

My rule reaches far and wide :rolleyes:

Hey where the ++++ did all my quotes go?

My duck has been eggsitting for at least a week longer than that first post, so??? Not sure.

Yes, I have been spending wayYYY too much time on line. I haven't eaten or showered in days (just kidding. I did eat.) :blink:

I ran into some old (and I do mean old) friends. Fun stuff.

this lady apparentlty smells quite strange and has a lisp,

Don't laugh. I, too have a slight lisp.

Tis true. People assure me it's quite "cute" but I tend to disagree.

Ummm . . . :unsure: . . . me too . . . you just can't tell over the internet . . . :lol:

Love that typing cancels lisping--unless typos count :unsure:

Missed this phirst time 'shroomy!!!

'Leucodendrons' eh??

Do we have these in Blighty???? :unsure:

Sounds like an atomic particle or summat equally scientific :rolleyes:

Oh help ME!!!!!

SAVE me from 'made for tv films on in the afternoon'.......... amgetttingsuckedinmustnotwatch..................

Nikk, you are just so darn cute ! Did you fire me today???

:lol:

I don't know what it means Suze, but it sure makes me giggle.

I had an equally bizarre dream last night about Olympia Dukakis (sp?)

She showed up at my Drs appointment :blink:

OMG, Joooools!!!

(SO fan-farking -tastic to see you here :wub::wub: ) But THIS IS HILARIOUS and ASTONISHING. .. . .......

I ALSO had a dream about Olympia Dukakis, two night ago. . . ... . .

:huh:

:blink:

Honest to gawd. . . . ... :unsure: . . . . ......she was in the hospital with my dad, in his room chatting with him about the television and movie industry. .. . .....not certain if she was a patient, or nurse, or had been cast in a hospital drama and was playing her role . . . .....

I thought briefly about it yesterday morning, then forgot about it until I read yer post. . . ....

:blink::blink:

Now WHAT IN HELL DOES THAT MEAN???????

You know, I had a weird dream about do ca-ca's in Olympia, too :blink:

Actually, I didn't. But I did gt a call from my doctor today. They scared me, said they needed me to call back regarding my test results that they wanted to discuss. Considering I just had a pap and they found cysts, you know what I was thinking, right?

Well, no worries. But apparrently my vitamin-d is low. WIH is going on?

What is this, the cold shoulder? :huh: How come everybody's reading and I'm the only one squiggling? :unsure:

SHE IS LLAMA LADY??????????????????????

I have decided my tiger/orange butter dream (I was slathering this balm into his large, wonderful paws - what does it mean??? ) has to do with:

I can just see the regal Ms. Dukakis posting llama links to get a larph round here.

Tiger balm :lol:

I'm tired and grouchy, but I did want to share my fab dim sum experience.

A previous lab member was visiting from the east coast so a bunch of us went out for dim sum. I was sitting near a guy who is clearly a dim sum aficianado so I asked if one particular bun was bread or rice. He said "oh, you don't eat gluten?" and proceeded to pick out all the rice based treats for me, and ask for two of everything, one without sauce. He even grabbed stuff and handed it to me first, and when he was combining plates for more room, he didn't mix the rice food with the breaded food.

It was the most incredible lunch.

And my biggest concern of the moment - red? or white? with peanut butter?

Sounds divine, and dem sum!

:o No way! We'd all end up as anomalous humanoids in his books - and he wouldn't even have to tweak our personalities to fit! How embarrassing would that be!

I enjoyed reading that, thanks. Last night during the "Lost" finale, we saw a commercial for the new series. It looks really good--we're looking forward to it. I'll bet lots of "Losties" are, too. :)

WoW! Peter, that is SO cool. That Flash Forward sounds right up my alley. Looking forward to it!

Has anyone else planted vegetable gardens this year? My dad and I collaborated and did a big one. We've got two kinds of bell peppers, zucchini, cantaloupe, green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins, and even CORN. :blink: Yeah, we kinda went nuts. The boys have been helping, too. It's been fun, but something has been nibbling on the green bean plants. :angry:

How is everyone???

    • Just recently I've had a lot of soreness in my mouth. I have small apthous ulcers on the underside of my tongue (even when I'm well I find I can get them by just eating salty potato chips).  I also have had to have a lump removed from my mouth which turned out to be benign.  Most of this I put down to stress, not enough sleep and I'm badly anemic at the moment - women's stuff.  I have just started to supplement B12 and ferrous glucanate again which has helped in the past.  My consultant tells me that often celiacs with blood iron under 50 can suffer from these sores and if I have an infusion it should sort out the problem. Silly of me but I've just made things far worse, I believe, by consuming a few pure (i.e. gluten free) oat cookies in the last couple of days. I've avoided oats for a long while now but thought I'd give them a try again and my mouth is tremendously sore this evening.
    • No, I won't swallow it! Right now, the wound is not really open, and cold relieves the pain more than warmth, so I'm not sure how much good salt water will do. I guess I get to anticipate the day when it does open, if it does. O goody. The pain is incredible. And I'm very hungry because I'm not eating enough. This really sucks, I must say. Thanks for your other words. Yeah, it was the citrus, and the stress, and some sugary things probably did not help either. Ugh.
    • If your blood tests do come out as negative, and they might, you can ask for genetic testing to rule out celiac and an endoscopy to check for damage.  I was in a similar situation years ago. I was gradually getting more and more tummy problems, a friend suggested cutting back on gluten and bam, I felt better when I did. So, when I finally was able to find a doctor who was willing to believe I didn't just have IBS, I already knew that if I ate gluten I had major diarrhea problems and pain... so went basically gluten free. I told that to the doc and he didn't believe me... but my blood tests all came back negative. Then he did the genetic tests to rule out celiac... they came back positive. Then he did an endoscopy and found damage and diagnosed me... and sent me to a dietitian who knew less about going gluten free than I did. I've been extremely careful since then. 
    • Weak positive means you should have an endoscopy done (with several biopsies) to see if you definitely have celiac. You have to continue eating gluten until the testing is done. If the biopsies don't confirm celiac you can always try a strict gluten free diet for a couple of months to see if you feel better.
    • They offer gluten free buns at $2 a pop.   I get the grilled chicken sandwich w/gluten-free bun and apple slices.  I only put lettuce, tomato, and onions on it.   Tough keeping the bun from falling apart.   I don't have severe symptoms so can't say for sure if I ate all gluten-free.
