This was the "errant boldness" of which I spoke, and the reason Will finds this pic absolutely hysterical. <_<

I still think it may be one of the band members. . . . ...

Ever seen that commercial for Stanley Steemer with the dog Toby?

Yes!!! So funny!

That's MY lucky number! My locker combination in HS was 27-17-7. And the address of the first house we bought was 2722. It is also in my social security number. And if you take the last name I was born with, replace each letter with the number of it's position in the alphabet, then add the digits of those numbers, you get 27. Don't even get me started on 11. :lol:

............gee..........sounds kinda like Rain Man, huh?

:lol: Lisa, very Rain Man-ish!

Speaking of favorite cereals growing up, I just decided I really miss cereal for breakfast, or a snack...haven't had it for YEARS with all the different food intolerances. I want Grape Nuts!!!!

JEWEL-LY!!!!!!!!! Arnie did a scoot! :o OMG - methinks he either needs the glands expressed, OR *gasp* he has worms............

Weezee missed her butt squeeze on account'a her mom being stuck in bed for two days. This will happen tomorrow, methinks.....

He just got groomed yesterday, cut REALLY short, and had his butt squeezed ...dunno if the stray hairs are irritating the area or what.

OMG. . . . . I was dared to request a friendship with a male name that I had to just arbitrarily think up. So, I thought up "Russel Smythe", punched him in, and there were several. I picked the Canadian Russel, and sent the friend request. Incredible, but he accepted.

So, now I know when Russ is heading out to play hockey, when he's taking back his library books, how his afternoon home from work is going. . . . ..... :huh::lol:

Haven't sent him any drinks or hugs as yet, nor have I poked nor smacked him... ..

Think you should all ask to be his friend, as well. :lol:

He's very likely celiac.....who isn't, after all?

OMG, hysterical :lol::lol: .......is Russel of age, and is he cute?!?!

I hear ya on the slipping into classy skin, I am so out of my element to in those situations.

Sometimes people hardly know how often I usually fart. It's never loud. Occassionally, I'll fart frequently, but they rarely notice. :P

Can you do it in less than 20 words? :lol:

Someone's been takin' her Omega-3!!!

I just don't know how to slip into a classy skin. . . .... :rolleyes:

Why don't you just wear what you've got on in yer av?? . . . or did you wear that at the last classy event that you went to?? . . . in which case, just change it up a bit and add a shawl and different shoes.

Tom, meant to answer your Facebook question earlier....your statuses will remain on your profile page, on your home page they are changed out as the news feed updates/rolls over..........does that make sense?

Oh and Emily if you don't have insurance you either pay out of pocket or you are SOL and don't get to receive medical care. One trip to the ER cost me over a thousand buckaroos (and absolutely nothing was accomplished <_< ). They do have various programs to help with the non-insured/low income...filled out the papers for my ER visit and was denied.

Oy, too worn out for much thinking/posting, but I'll give it a go. [i think it took an hour . ...pretty slow brain day]

Too many posts worth commenting on, but brain not up for it.

That Mayo is like an assembly line. Big-ass campus, no idea how many bldgs.

Go to that end of the bldg for appt check-in.

Back to this end for Scheduling, in a big room that looks and acts like a DMV office. "Mr. Murphy to window 7"

Up a floor or 2 for GI dept.

Window 3 this time.

Phorms.

Wait.

Pretty good doc, btw. Best GI I've ever met, certainly.

He mentioned HLA typing & when I simply mentioned DQ2/DQ8 he says "are you an engineer?" da noiv!! All celiacs w/ any online time should know DQ2/DQ8.

He didn't know if it'll be both alpha & beta. :(

(I don't have much desire to know my DQs anyway - too much research needed there)

Back to Scheduling for a piece of paper. Down a floor for Radiology & Blood Lab. Wait here, wait there, 6 vials, wait here & there & there, smocked up, do chest x-ray for some reason.

Back to the DMV . ....errrrrrrr .. . . Scheduling.

They were trying to get an endoscopy, colonoscopy, MRI/MRCP, & some other stuff all in tomorrow, but GI is full so no -oscopies (oscopii?) this time.

At least half & maybe 90% of all this is useless, but wtf, checkin' everything.

<me brain just wants to go into standby mode>

*******

A conversation w/ mom:

Me "Then a u-turn at 136th." [We'd already crossed 82nd, 90th, 10-somethin']

Mom "*I* [from "you-turn" of course] turn at 1:36? Won't we be late?"

"A U-turn, ya know, reversing direction. At 136th St."

"To the right?"

"Uhhhhhhh . ...<wondering why I even need to be in this conv> .. ..to the left, mom"

**************

Lisa!!!! 20 words?!!! Quite impressive .. . .I can't try tonight tho. Maybe last week it'd've been worth a shot.

Julily works ok duddinit? ;)

Try it

I think it'll show the mobile site on a pc.

My goal of having a home pc up by Sat didn't take into acct this trip <doi!> .. . :( .. ..w/in a few days of being back I'll do it tho.

Good Morning, Psillies!

I do recall this line of boobage discussion. Now moi.....I'd choose a tummy tuck

Oh, gawd. . . ...me, as well. I would love to have all my stomach flab pushed up to my boob area, and just trapped there. Just a simple rearranging of phat, really. :rolleyes:

OMG, hysterical .......is Russel of age, and is he cute?!?!

Um. . .. . .actually, methinks he may have cancelled our friendship. :unsure::rolleyes: He no longer seems to be in my collection of Friends, though he sat proudly there for a couple of months.

He probably got to thinking, "Now, this just doesn't feel right. Don't know this woman. . ... .... what if I am just the subject of some lame, humiliating dare? An arbitrary name they've thought up, had a few good laughs over?? They break into squeals of laughter when they read all about what I'm 'currently doing right now' - - that I've just taken out the garbage, that my constipation has subsided... .. .They're probably JUST LAUGHING AT ME!! Well, I'll show you - - I'm NO LONGER your friend!"

And thus, the end of the Russell Smythe chapter.

Think I'll request his Friendship again. :lol::lol:

Why don't you just wear what you've got on in yer av?? . . . or did you wear that at the last classy event that you went to?? . . . in which case, just change it up a bit and add a shawl and different shoes.

YES! I could slip into a classy skin by slipping into my tiger and leopard skins. . . .....it's a plan worth considering.

Now, real class would also entail William following me around the hall or ballroom all evening, hand affixed to my boob..... .

Oh and Emily if you don't have insurance you either pay out of pocket or you are SOL and don't get to receive medical care. One trip to the ER cost me over a thousand buckaroos (and absolutely nothing was accomplished ). They do have various programs to help with the non-insured/low income...filled out the papers for my ER visit and was denied.

OMG. . . this just gets worse and worse....how do self-employed or laid-off, ill Americans get medical care?? I suppose many don't. . . .... :(:o

Glad things are happening at Mayo, Ptaoughmghmnuss!

Jeez.....is yer mom out drivin' the roads very often?? Yikes. . .. ..! :huh:;)

Really Em, the sad truth is that many Americans can't afford to get sick. It's outrageously expensive for an individual or an individual family to buy health insurance. :(

Phorgot to report The Ripper's phabulous ponderable question from yesterday: We were out walking the dogs, and were passing by a construction site. As we went by a porta-potty, Jack suddenly asked, "So, Mom. . . . . if you were going to the bathroom in one of those and your cellphone dropped into the hole, would you fish it out?"

OMG, that is SOOOOOO gross. . .. .... .

I said that I didn't know, but probably . .. . :gagface:... . would try to toilet-paper-glove it . .. .....

BARPPPPPHHHHH..... .. ....

((((((SHUDDER)))))). . . ......I'm just not sure. I'd be thinking of the avoidable cost of a new phone (when I got my phone, I asked what the price was for a replacement handpiece, and it was some ridiculous amount).....and all my millions of contact numbers . . .....

Ewwwwwwwwww, it's just so gross.... . .....

If there were enough TP in there to totally wrap my hand, like a goalie's trapper or catcher's mitt .. . . .......

Say it phell phace down--you'd need toothpicks er sumphin to clean out the little holes and between the buttons. A rather laboUr intensive phoo situation when you really think about it. ;):lol:

Emily . . . Thomn and Paddee have got it covered . . . couldn't agree more . . . not touchin' that fone wif a 10 foot poo-pickin' toothpick pole.

From me mum:

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.

BUT, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refunds, you would have received $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and recycle. It is called the 401-Keg.

A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon!

Makes you proud to be an American!

"So, Mom. . . . . if you were going to the bathroom in one of those and your cellphone dropped into the hole, would you fish it out?"

I would report that a thief/miscreant had ripped it out of my hand as s/he ran by and flung it into a nearby port-a-potty. When asked to describe said miscreant I would come up with someone whom I really disliked and had a high probability of being in the neighborhood. I would ask that as punishment, that person be required to fish out my phone and recover the lost data.

    • Noticing I am having D quite easy nothing bad, painful or gassy, just D or super soft stool in the mornings for the past 4 days. Food Diary suggest several culprits, my BBQ jackfruit seems to be the number one suspect, This is my BBQ cuisine week or two and I can not eat meat so I have a big wad pinch of shredded homemade BBQ Jackfruit. I have done a gluten test on it and that is not the reason but perhaps the seasonings or perhaps hte cider vinegar I put it in fermented it a bit?

      Other thoughts on culprits, I have upped my vitamin C intake to about 1500mg a day spaced out in 2 doses Vitamin C has been linked to D in many cases and is one reason why some people get D when they take a vit C supplement in conjunction with fruit.
      I have also upped my cocoa nib intake this could be a culprit also,
      I have cut back on binding seeds like flax, whole shell pumpkin, and chia which used to be a huge fiber supplement so this could be the cause of more softer stools.Next week I start back on chia seeds in my eggs and we shall see if my stools firm back up. 
      I also doubled up on probiotics as I was taking half the recommended dose prior.
      Eating a bunch more cinnamon, and cinnamon oil, but I do this on rotation so doubt it,
      My new low carb bread, I am eating 2-4 slices of this grain less bread a meal now. This could be it but this bread using coconut flour in it, and egg whites. I doubt this is the case, as coconut flour is known to absorb liquid a lot, and tends to firm up ones stool and in fact cause constipation in people if they do not consume it with a lot of liquid. I came across health concerns with other bakers when I was working on this recipe about it.
      My protein intake went up to double what it used to be 5 weeks ago, doubt this is the issue but this week, I changed it using a custom blend with MUCH less rice protein and more pea and sancha inchi. I noticed the more rice protein I consumed the worse my edema got with legs and feet swelling. Have this well under control now with no swelling,
      I considered it perhaps my extreme coffee intake but I have changed to only 2 cups of caffeinated coffee a day starting mid last month. Down from a whole pot.......so now I drink about a pot of decaf a day. I doubt this is it as it never gave me a issue with the much more likely culprit of full on caffeinated in the same amount.

      While I try to trouble shoot it I am actually slightly enjoying it. Odd as this might sound, I spent most my life with chronic constipation, and the only relieve I used to get came with a glutening and that had EXTREME pain and gas. Followed by a week or so of constipation so bad I had to take laxatives.  This....this is just a release with no pain or gas....odd and creepy but I seem to have much more energy, and I can eat and drink a lot more. >.< I think I might enjoy this ride a bit of regularity even if it is a bit off, it is a huge change from my hard stools and painful movements of years past.  I mean I have gone as far in the past as taking a entire bottle of miralax to try to go and just had gassy normal BM 24 hours later and frankly miralax makes me feel like groggy, tired, and like the blob, I am that guy that had to double the dose of everything for the scope prep and had the doctor think I cheated when I told him the first time I did it right and did not clean me out. I want to find out what is triggering this and add it to my regime for clean out or laxative treatment after a glutening next time when that C hits for a week.
    • Yeah noticing some others, black tea, gives me that film/mucus on top of my stomach while green tea, herbal/hibisicus, and coffee do not. I have recently fell in love with Rythem Kale chips, and roasted kale. Kale raw...I always get sick from. At first it was due to the waxy stuff on the ones I was getting, then I got organic washed. and still got the issue minus the floating waxy stuff in my stomach. Now if I stewed it, nuked it, or made chips out of it no issues. But with the farmer market, me baking for it, and Texas Summer preventing afternoon baking due to heat. I never had time to roast kale this summer. Now with the Rythem Kale it comes prepared in a way that doe not make me sick. Love using it crushed up in my omelettes, or using it crushed as a garnish over my miracle noodles or rice. with a pesto or butter flavored coconut oil. Considered this, I have a friend who has this with bananas and a few other fruits, they do not bother him if he cooks them, raw causes hives and swelling. Again I considered it but I no not have sores form in my mouth like I do with my corn allergy, nor do I get itchy or swelling. Still might be a slight issue I might  give it some more thought. >.> could be the fact I do not have much feeling for heat or pain in my mouth (nerve issues).  But it does sort of apply I need to do some research and see if others have this and might be limited to the vomiting and stomach mucus symptoms also. I might try eating some foods I know I have a allergy to like peaches and mango, just a tiny bit in a extract, and see if I get the same reaction, They normally just cause drainage, and sniffles, even stuff with just the flavoring or extract.
    • Hate to add more to your list but you may also want to look into Oral Allergy Syndrome. Mostly because how you describe almonds. Yes, it is another extensive list of foods for intolerance and allergies. 
    • How long were you fully gluten free for Kirsty?  
    • Hi Matt, So you say your hypoglycemia resolved going gluten free. In my case, it got worse trying to get off. Now my cortisol, progesterone and estrogens are low. The extreme stress from trying to cut it out of my diet offset my menstrual cycle. That leaves me with a lot of anxiety, blood sugar issues worsen at specific times of my cycle. So I want the doctor to stabilize me hormonally, as far as that goes while being on gluten. I agree that I’d have to fully stop eating gluten. Not just a bit. Even though I removed all gluten except 1,5 slices of bread, I still experience the above symptoms. Some of those symptoms might be because of the hormonal situation. But they always worsen after eating gluten. My appointment with a hormonwise doctor is in 10 days. Seems such a short time, but hate waiting. Kirsty
